I was just wondering , to me passenger demand does not seem right at all. When I play this game i tend to avoid the USA because of huge amount of competition and spam airlines. I usually go to the Caribbean, my home but to add flights there is extremely difficult because of such low demand. Ex: on a route b/w Barbados and St. Lucia in the game demand is about 20passengers/day compared to real life where it is about 120-150passengers/day. Now I don't expect it to be completely correct but at least the littlest bit realistic. Or for example, a route b/w St lucia and London would only have abut 40passengers/day but in real life it has about 400passengers/day. Now there is a big difference there. Just wondering if anyone else feels this way and thinks that the demand for smaller nations, not just the large airports should be rechecked.

Yes, you're bang on. Algorithms don't take geography into position, or indeed flight history, which means that some places are rock to break even in.

Yeah, it's completely based on the max pax numbers. Two low pax airports will have a lower demand between each other. This is the only efficient way to do it for some sort of level playing field... If real world routes were inputted... it would cause people to mostly only fly those big ones and there would be little chance for people to create unique hubs other than real world ones... Not to mention plenty of places don't give pax numbers for routes... So everything is clumped up in one big pool.

Depends. If you're in China, try Bejing Nanyuan to New Delhi. Or indeed any major Indian airport within range.

I would like this feature. I also enjoy the Carribean destinations and do not enjoy the low mount of demand. I think this should be in airport requests, though...

You have to remember that the connecting passengers model in AE is pretty poor at the moment. AE route demands show O&D whilst in real life, your London - Carribean routes are simply serving London but the entire UK (and possibly other European ports)

If you look at real airlines they operate multiple times daily with a type of aircraft, but in AE there isn't the demand for it with isn't real
