#111565 Change name of Terminals to.....

Posted by Eireann on 17.07.2018 - 15:18

Lounges, or ground handling or gate space. I hate seeing heathrow with 22 terminals, it ruins the realistic element of the game. However gate space, lounges and handling is all realistic as airlines in the real world do this.

Will we see a change in AS? I guess its easy to swap it and make it an Airbus A220, its just cosmetic ? 




#111326 Re-name an airline

They don't like to reply. 

Completely false. They replied and changed the name for me in the time frame they said it they can get back to me. 




#111238 Newest Battle - Mexico

Posted by Eireann on 03.07.2018 - 02:18

*****Update July*****

As of July, there are 9 airlines with 5 major players with some very interesting developments including several of them teaming up. 2 of the original airlines decided to opt out of the market, flyXL and Aztec Airlines and we gained MexAir Xpress. 

The airlines in question (In order of pax Carried last week): 

AirMex

Bases - Guadalajara, Mexico City 
Focus Cities - Cancun

Fleet - 6 A319s, 18 A320s, 4 A321s, 1 A340, 3 EMB190LR Total: 32
Pax carried last week - 148,528
Destinations: 37
AirMex expanded massively this month, with nearly 20 planes, operating to 37 destinations across Mexico, US and Spain.

Kingler Air Mexico

Bases - Mexico City
Fleet - 4 A319s, 23 A320s, 3 737s, 5 EMB195 Total: 35
Pax carried last week - 131,230
Destinations - 49
Kingler now is the largest carrier in terms of fleet and the 2nd largest in terms of pax carried.

Dahlia Airlines
Bases - Mexico City
Focus Cities -Guadalajara

Fleet - 8 A319s, 4 A320s, 1 A321, 2 737-700s, 4 737-800s, 1 EMB175, 1 EMB190, 1 EMB195 Total: 22

Dahlia airlines continued it steady growth doubling their fleet size. They added a fleet of 737s to their operation as well as Embraer regional jets.

Pax carried last week: 52,280
Destinations - 42
Mexico's main regional airline and Mexico Cities biggest airline in terms of movements, GoPacific set up noticing a massive lack of air service to a lot of airports across the country, opening niche routes as well as competing with the main trunk routes in the market. 

Sun Air Mexico

Bases - Mexico City
Fleet - 11 A319, 1 A320,  2 ATR72s Total 14
Pax carried last week: 52,101
Destinations - 20
Sun Air Mexico doubled its fleet as well, its network focuses on Mexicos busiest markets and serves its passengers with the highest quality of service in the process. 

Mexico Vuela

Bases - Mexico City
Fleet 3 x 737-800 Total: 3
Pax Carried last week - 24,596
Destinations - 4 
No real change, they seem happy where they are at. 

SombreroAir

Bases - Mexico City
Fleet - 2 TU204s, 1 A320, 2 A321s Total 5
Pax Carried last week - 19,945

Cancun Connect

Slow expansion, still the only dedicated airline at Cancun and filling their aircraft well. 


 


 




#110940 Newest Battle - Mexico

Posted by Eireann on 17.06.2018 - 18:52

Huge battle for Mexico at the moment, main airline went under about 2 months ago leaving the entire market open.

Currently there are 10 similarly sized airlines all fighting for the market. The main aircraft of choice has been the A319/20 family. We have 8 airlines soley based out Mexico City, 1 airline out of both Guadalajara and Mexico city and the other out of Cancun. Its going to be very interesting to see who survives, who fights till the end and who becomes victorious. The 10 airlines are with some info are:

Kingler Air Mexico: 
-  Base: Mexico City
 - Fleet: 16 x A320s 1 x A319 1 x 737-600 Total: 18
-  Fully based out of Mexico City airport, they are using full service and best seats serving the most destinations of any airline so far and are just the market leader in front of AirMex and they are expanding quickly.

AirMex
- Bases: Guadalajara, Mexico City
- Fleet: 1 x A321 13 x A320s 1 x A319 1 x A300B4 1 x A340-300 Total: 17

-  AirMex has two main hubs, one out of Guadalajara and the other is out of Mexico City. They also serve direct routes from Cancun as well. They have an interesting fleet with a couple of widebodies thrown in there and are doing very well. 

Dahlia Airlines
- Bases: Mexico City
- Fleet: 7 x A319s 4 x A320s Total 11 
- 2nd biggest airline out of the capital, Dahlia is offering top service and best seats available to domestic destinations. They also serve a few direct routes out of Cancun showing interest outside of capital. 

Aztec Airlines
- Bases: Mexico City
- Fleet: 10 x Fokker 100s  Total 10

- Quickly expanding with a fleet of Fokker 100s, Aztec airlines offers the 2nd most destinations in the country so far and is the 4th biggest airline in terms of weekly departures out of Mexico city. 

flyXL

- Bases : Mexico City

- Fleet: 8 x A320s Total: 8
- One of the newer airlines, setting up with a fleet of 2nd hand A320s and competing directly on the biggest domestic routes. 

Sun Air Mexico

- Bases: Mexico City
- Fleet 7 x A319 Total: 7

- Another new airline joined in the fun and based themselves out of Mexico City. They have focused on the biggest demand routes like Cancun and Monterey rather than the number of destinations. 

 

SombreroAIR
- Bases: Mexico City

- Fleet 2 x A321 2 x TU-204 Total: 4

- Airline with an interesting choice of aircraft, the TU204 operating a hub operation out of Mexico City like the others. They have the best seats and service available for the aircraft and routes they operate.

Cancun Connect

- Bases: Cancun

- Fleet 3 x CS300 1 x A319 Total: 4

- The only airline not operating a hub operation out of Mexico city, they have found a Niche so far, operating routes where they have a monopoly. Surely its a matter of time before the top 3 airlines base a couple of planes out of Cancun and compete with them. Time will tell how Cancun connect play this one out. 

Mexico Vuela

- Bases: Mexico City
- Fleet: 3 x 737-800s
- A small airline, operating a shuttle type service between Cancun, Mexico City, Monterry and Guadalajara. 

There is also a inactive airline with 4 717s that havent set up routes yet called Aerolineas de Mexico. No information them yet other than they are bases in Mexico City as well. 

 

2 Airlines leading the pack, AirMex and Kingler Air Mexico with 17 and 18 planes respectfully. Dahlia Airlines just in behind. Its a little bit of a bloodbath at the moment.

No! This game should never become pay to win for crying out loud!!!!!




#109602 Increase aircraft aging speed

Posted by Eireann on 18.04.2018 - 04:16

I am getting a feeling that people that like this idea are probably the ones who play the limited time game worlds and want to be the biggest and best airline. Therefore tweaking the game for those game worlds to make them more of a game than a realistic sim, I can see the runways Idea and this idea work. But please keep this idea away from long term game worlds, because it would ruin airlinesim overall.




#109486 How Are Airlines Cheating Now?

Posted by Eireann on 11.04.2018 - 09:23

Nope,I'm not.
It's just that these companies have different operating styles.

You literally just wrote with two accounts........




#108824 One more time... Loading factors

Posted by Eireann on 20.03.2018 - 22:45

It took me forever to work out how to make money in the simulation. The best lesson I learnt is patience. Its a marathon not a sprint. What I use to do is lease every cheap plane that was available before I have sorted out my routes etc etc. I flying routes just because I thought they seemed realistic as well, not based on the actual demand I was getting. 
 

You are on my server ive seen you open a station at my hub airport and I have taken a look into your airline. 

I am bored so I will help you out as I love this game and I want you to enjoy it too - If I was you I would do the following: 


My routes would be the following:    DOMESTIC (Goy-Per, Debrecan, Batalon etc) 

Waves                                              1                               2                              3                                4
HA-AAK EMB140   DOMESTIC - BUD - DOMESTIC - BUD - DOMESTIC - BUD - DOMESTIC  - BUD - DOMESTIC

HA-AAL EMB140    DOMESTIC - BUD - DOMESTIC - BUD - DOMESTIC - BUD - DOMESTIC  - BUD - DOMESTIC
HA-AAN EMB140   DOMESTIC - BUD - DOMESTIC - BUD - DOMESTIC -  BUD - DOMESTIC  - BUD - DOMESTIC

HA-AAO EMB140   BUCHAREST - BUD - PRAGUE - BUD - ROME - BUD - PRAGUE - BUD - BUCHAREST 

HA-AAP  ATR72      ZAGREB - BUD - VIENNA - BUD - BUCHAREST - BUD - VIENNA - BUD - ZAGREB

HA-AAM 737-700    ISTANBUL - BUD - FRANKFURT - BUD - ISTANBUL - BUD - MUNICH- BUD - ISTANBUL 

HA-AAJ - 737-700   TEL AVIV - BUD - WARSAW - BUD - ROME - BUD - WARSAW - BUD - TEL AVIV 

 

Make sure all waves land at the same time in BUD and go out after an hour from the arrival time to make the connections.
If you cannot do 5 flights outbound in a day - just take off the last rotation and mess around with it. Or get African Maintenance Systems as your Mainenance. 
Make sure your Maintenance ratio is over 100% as well, as close to 125% as possible but above 100%

 

With the above you will be connecting East to west (EG turkey to Germany) back east then west and back east. Through this network PAX will be able to get from Istanbul via BUD to Prague, Frankfurt, Zagreb, Vienna and warsaw as well all domestic destinations within Hungary. Vise versa PAX could go from Warsaw to Tel AVIV, Istanbul, Rome, Bucharest and all the domestic if you get me. 

This is if you were to keep as you are, if you restart you could get 4 Sukhoi Superjet100s to cover HA-AAO, HA-AAP, HA- AAM and HA-AAJ routes (they are on the market cheap on Ellinikon) and get 3 ATR 42s to cover the 3 domestic airports in Hungary for under AS10,000,000 
These would be more profitable and you can get better seats in the them. 

I am a moderately experienced player but not the best so another player might pipe up and say they would do things differently than me (this is the joys of the game). Take this as you will. 



EDIT: Best thing to do with this game is take on board what others say as well - many on here will know I always ask questions and get advice wherever needed. With this I have now become a semi-decent player :)
