#113358 Passenger volume and SEAT

Posted by Matth on 10.10.2018 - 05:27

How does that logic work out? Each airport has more traffic, but the routes less? This does not add up.

That routes have less traffic makes perfectly sense, as the traffic is following the supply in AS. If there is no supply on a specific route, passengers find other ways to get there. Or if supply is better or bigger, passengers will fly a different route than in real life.

Riem with reduced traffic is quite close to the 77M of real life 2017, although a week doesn't correspond one to one in AS.

#113300 Need to help fix spelling error in Airline name

The best way is to report your airline yourself and state the requested change there.

You find the field at the bottom right of your airline overview page.

Finde Leaf Infinity extrem gelungen! Dafür möchte ich fast eine Kanadische Airline gründen...

Übrigens, was für ein Flieger ist das?

Es kann sich nur noch um  Monate handeln...


Scherz beiseite, ja, es wird sehr bald einen Update mit neuen Fliegern geben.

#112625 Getting those connecting pax

Also note, that your image first has to build up, which will take a couple of days. Right now you will have a much lower rating and thus attract less passengers.

#112441 Introduction of new aircraft types

Posted by Matth on 27.08.2018 - 03:24

We are still working on it. And yes, those aircraft will come. And no, they won't be totally revolutionize the game. They will be slightly more efficient, though you can do everything with existing aircraft as well.

You probably won’t make much profit (if any at all) on the direct route. But if you fill your planes with transfer pax, you’ll cash in on the following leg and increase your profit.

#111449 Unrealistische Bestuhlungen - Was kann dagegen getan werden

Posted by Matth on 11.07.2018 - 15:04

Du setzt voraus, dass die neuen Buchungsklassen zeitnah kommen, daher macht jetzt eine Änderung keinen Sinn mehr. Was wenn diese aber erst in einem, zwei oder gar erst drei Jahren eingeführt werden?

Zudem, die von Dir vorgeschlagenen Änderungen sind dann aber plötzlich extrem umfangreich. Buchungsklassen, Aufkommen, Performance-Modell, Turnaround Zeiten... Das ist beinahe ein neues Airlinesim.

#111150 It's too easy for a mistake to snowball out of control.

Posted by Matth on 30.06.2018 - 02:45

I'm sorry to hear, but I fear, these kind of mistakes all players have gone through at one stage of the game play. And while it is annoying when you lose an aircraft cos you overestimated your income, it normally won't break your airline. Your growth is slowed down, but you just get it back a few days later.

#111090 Add premium economy class

This is not an official team reply, it is just my personal opinion.

The credits you pay are NOT meant as funds to develop the game further. The daily credits are charged to use the current version of the game. That money is used to pay for the servers and is a reward for investments already made (previous development).

Ideally there would be enough people paying for the game to create a hefty profit, which in turn would incentivize the developer to invest more (time and money) to improve the software version.

While it seems that the game has a quite steady number of supporters, it is also obvious that the few thousand players are not enough to generate enough funds to really invest more money into the software. It gets developed on a, I'd call it hobby base. It generates too much cash to let it die, but too little to take it much further.

I guess it's a known secret, that there won't be many new features, or at least not on a regular basis. If something gets released, than it's a nice to have benefit, but nothing you should really expect.

#111035 aircraft repos

In dubio pro reo. So making fun of new players isn't very helpful.


First, if you have a look at those e-mails you have received again, then you will see that the sender is one of your internal departments. That is why the wording is "OUR" on NOT "your". It means, it is the airlines fault of not having enough money to be able to pay for the leasing payment, so the lessor took his aircraft back. Obviously, you lose your investment in the seats, your planned flights get cancelled (luckily, you don't pay any penalty for the poor passengers). After deducting the leasing payment, you do get your security deposit back. On your dashboard, you see an outlook of coming payments, so always have a close look for those and ensure that you have enough money on your account if you don't want to get your aircraft repossessed.


Then, once a week (pretty much exactly one week after you have founded the airline, and then every following week) you have to pay salaries to all your employees. This is the weekend-closing and is one of those big payments that you have to look out for. And be aware, the amount on the dashboard is sometimes wrong, so better double check the exact amount on the staff page. You will need that amount on your bank account as well. If you don't have enough money for the salaries, you will get a rescue loan. You can check your loans under Management - Corporate Finance - Debt. The interest rates are obviously not very favorable for a company not being able to pay the weekly salaries, so you better avoid those and if you can, pay the loan back as fast as possible.


You will get only two consecutive loans, if you don't have enough cash on the third weekend-closing, your company will get liquidated!


I can't tell you what was deducted between June 21 and June 22. You can check the last 24 hours of your activities on the Bank Account page (Click on your cash balance then on Bank Account) to see what was deducted. Obviously, it's too far back for that now.


You might want to have a look at this sort of tutorial or search Youtubefor some explanations for beginners.

#111005 Neue Maschine leasen aber ohne Crew

Posted by Matth on 20.06.2018 - 16:44

Wenn Du die Kabine sofort nach der Übertragung ausbaust, dann kannst Du zumindest die F/As sofort neu zuweisen.

Die Piloten brauchst Du noch auf dem alten Flieger, bis der Flugplan abgeflogen ist. Ausser Du machst den Wechsel kurz vor der Fälligkeit des Leasings, in dem Falle werden einfach alle eingebuchten Flüge (ohne Stornogebühr) gelöscht.

Die erwähnten Einstellungen oben rechts gelten dann für die ganze Spielwelt. Über die Settings der Airline kannst Du diese Komfortfunktion auch für die spezifische Airline steuern. (Airline Name - Settings)

#110956 Something went really wrong. Help

Posted by Matth on 18.06.2018 - 18:05

Passengers always book single legs in AS, so it could well be that you have passengers in one direction but not for the return.

I do assume though, that some of your flights didn't have the demand calculation yet. Each airport calculates its demand once per day. You can see the time on the airport page. Each flight should therefore get three demand calculations.

It could also be, that the full flight has many transfer pax, while the return doesn't have a matching connection. On the flight detail page you can find the number of transfer pax, besides the financial result of that flight.
