#113717 Battle for Indonesia

Posted by Eireann on 30.10.2018 - 19:40

Huge battle for Indonesia at the moment. Two main players are Indonesia airways and Sky Indonesia with 65 and 50 planes. About 6 smaller airlines as well.

I will do a full in depth guide to later but currently stuck in work.


#113431 General Advice - New Player

Posted by Eireann on 12.10.2018 - 16:04

The moment I started to get successful was the moment I understood how important connections were and how competitors were always getting more Pax. I use to make an airline, fold it, make an airline, fold it - I bet other players got fed up of seeing "XYZ has started operations" then "XYZ has been liquidated" all over the main page. 

My mistake? I use to go up against established players in Europe and never had any serious connections. Gatwick to Barcelona should be fine to fill up a A320 with right? No. Not when there is 5 huge airlines operating direct route in competition, then you always have an airline in Amsterstam, both paris airports, Geneva etc and even if you do have a feed from some UK airports (Hard to do at LGW due to slots), there will be more airlines in LHR with routes every hour to most UK airports to feed their flights, with better ORS rating. Its nearly impossible (nearly). However if you find a market with a gap however, you can grow massively. 

It took me about a year of trial and error until an opportunity arose when a massive airline shut down in a major market, then about 15 airlines set up and I ended up the winner after a 3 months, now I have the entire market to myself and connecting hundreds of destinations every wave out of my hub. Love the game, it takes time, keep at it and its rewarding.  




#113174 Things have got to Change

I think your points are valid but I dont agree 100%. I think there does need to be more clarity from the makers of this game about the future and what new features are in the works. There was meant to be a new pax system but we havent heard anything for over a year.

#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.




#111447 Airbus A220-300

Posted by Eireann on 11.07.2018 - 15:02

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

Posted by Eireann on 07.07.2018 - 14:26

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.

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.

Pax carried last week: 52,101

#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.

#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.
