In Topic: NSA (America) Spying Scandal

Snowden is a traitor and as such he should be put to death.  All countries spy on each other and their own citizens.  All Snowden has done is put stress on the relationship between America and its allies that have taken years to build.  I would love to see him back on American soil so that he can pay, with his life, for what he has done.

I understand that I'll still make some profit on connecting pax, but in the example below, the load factor on the routes page is listed as 100%, but I've been undercut by only $5, which has caused most of my passengers to be connecting, causing my income on the route to drop significantly.  I stay on top of anything less than 100%, but it's these that still show 100% I have a hard time finding.

 

I have tons of routes where this has happened, and they still shows 100%.  So other than price matching all of my routes to pick back up some of the lost pax, is there really no other way to search for these routes other than going one by one down the routes page?

I'm looking at how others effectively go through 1,000+ routes to see if they've been undercut or if someone has come along and cut into a large percentage of your market share.  I often find that when looking at an overview of my routes it will show I'm still making money, and I still have 100% load factors in all classes, but when looking closer, maybe only 30% of the load are my own passengers and the rest are from elsewhere, so I'm not making as much money as I was because someone has come along and lowered prices on the route.

 

Going route by route to look for this is tedious, so I didn't know if there was a faster way.

 

I'm also wanting to know about strategy, but I'm in a game right now so I'd prefer to ask the question privately.

I disagree with the advice to stay off other people's routes.  Just saying that a route belongs to someone is silly.  In my game play, it's a free for all and competition makes it fun.  No need to tip-toe around other players.

 

At the same time, I'll also accept the consequences if the competitor turns around and shows me who's who for doing so.  I'm just careful who I think I can compete against and if it's worth it.

Ah, makes complete sense.  Thanks Mobeer!  ;)
