#110903 Unrealistische Bestuhlungen - Was kann dagegen getan werden

Posted by rubiohiguey2000 on 15.06.2018 - 02:01

@ XXX_Star - Sie verwenden sich riesige Sitze, so dass Ihre Beschwerde sehr scheinheilig ist. Willst du kleinere Sitze, so werden sich mehr Slots öffnen, so kann FENTL noch mehr Flugzeuge bekommen und dich schließlich im Sarg festnageln? Lol.

#110699 Unrealistische Bestuhlungen - Was kann dagegen getan werden

This is all about ORS rating...less and bigger seats create a better score. Its not about maximizing profit, its about taking the passengers away. If 50 people want to fly from Rome to London they would choose competitor A with a 50 seats a320 and not competitor B with a 120 seats a320. 


Again, after a certain threshold, you put a bigger seat but your rating remains the same. And you cannot move the price any more higher. So what's the point to put a bigger seat?


I run my A320 with 90/15 config and they are a gold mine if full and breaking even at 50% load factor. Now imagine I had 50 seats. I probably would earn same or 10% more with 50-seat A320 being full than with 60-seat filled in my 105-seat A320 (e.g. low AGEX). When AGEX goes up and I fill 105 seats, I am earning 2x that what a 50-seat A320 would earn even at a max price. That's the point.


The one who runs a 50-seat A320 does himself a disfavor unless he competes against 5 other airlines in Sudan.

Have you read what I wrote? As I wrote earlier, there is a certain limit where indtalling any better seat does not help you at all, it's a waste of space. That super luxury seat in the aircraft above has the same rating as much smaller seat.

There is absolutely no advantage to the airline, actually its a loss of possible revenue while gaining nothing (zero, zippo, zilch) in return. If they want to run such a wasteful configuration, it's their decision, and you should only be happy that they do not earn money they could otherwise earn with much leaner configuration, while keeping the same rating.

It's you as their competitor who benefits from it more than they do benefit themselves.

#110539 Advantages of subsidiaries?

Posted by rubiohiguey2000 on 31.05.2018 - 03:46

If you can transfer money using planes, why would anyone involve third party and do many stock transactions just to transfer money...

Even if it was legal, just consider logistics to transfer 100 million, you are willing to invest 10 million into the endeavor.

With 10 million worth plane, you do 20 transactions total, 10 sales and 10 transfers without compensation.

With stock transactions, stock worth 10 million would generate you 2 million max per 4 round robin sales. So to transfer 100 million, you would need 200 stock transactions.

Compare 200 stock transactions to 20 aircraft transactions. Also each stock transaction takes 15 minutes, so 50 hours time total. You can do 20 aircraft transfer transactions in under 10 minutes.

So even if it was legal between two fully owned companies, why would anyone do it?

#110142 Extend the cycle times for two weeks.

Posted by rubiohiguey2000 on 14.05.2018 - 15:32

It would be the same for you. The demand model is based on 3 cycles. If you extend to 14 days, that would mean daily demand would go down 4.6 times. At the end, you would get the same number of passengers with substantially higher stress on the server.

Or do you think you would get the same daily amount of bookings as you do now, but instead of 3 days get it for 14 days? LOL.

That would mean the big airlines would get even bigger.. So ain't gonna happen.

And if you get 4.6 times lower daily demand, what's the point? Plus, people would not be willing to wait 14 days for their flight to take off if they activate flight plans with delay.

Summary: your idea makes no sense whatsoever.


EDIT: P.S. There are private AirlineSim servers, which for a cost of ~20 Euros per month allow you a membership on a server with a maximum of 25 players. Usually having same demand levels as regular servers, these allow you to run any business model as your heart wishes.

Diamond Star on Idlewild is looking for players interested in setting up an Indian airline. Any player is eligible, and will receive startup support from the largest alliance on Idlewild in the form of cheap airline leases, terminals, and some advice.

Your calculator is broken...

#109945 In-Game Calendar Week Start/End Dates

Posted by rubiohiguey2000 on 01.05.2018 - 15:10

No. It is UTC based, Monday 00:00 through Sunday 23:59. It is universal for all countries and gameworlds. So in this case it would be Mon 30 Apr 2018 00:00:00 UTC to Sun 06 May 2018 23:59:59 UTC.

#109927 Transfer select flight numbers to new aircraft

Posted by rubiohiguey2000 on 30.04.2018 - 05:26

Control click flight "I" to open in new tab, click open in scheduling, there select new destination aircraft using tail number, select all days, click to apply. Repeat for the other flight.

Ausgerechnet miki als Verfechter von Fairplay, ich glaube, ich schmeiß mich gleich weg vor Lachen... :lol:

I agree. Someone who was using dummy investment holdings to acquire traffic rights long after such dummy holdings were declared illegal, is complaining that others use legal structured ownership in compliance with all the rules, with he only thing they are envious is for others to do a legal structured ownership instead of illegal dummy holding.

#109630 3-letter-code A320neo-family

Posted by rubiohiguey2000 on 18.04.2018 - 14:37

But we do not use ICAO here, we usa IATA. Both for aircraft codes as well as airport codes. As IATA uses the same code for 320 NEO as for the CEO, there is no need to change anything.

#109629 Increase aircraft aging speed

Posted by rubiohiguey2000 on 18.04.2018 - 14:35

Agreed 100% with @panache. As I already said it earlier, silly and bad idea. No need to waste any more bandwidth discussing this.

#109578 A321 LR

Posted by rubiohiguey2000 on 16.04.2018 - 21:40

Indeed it would mean that. Everyone keenly expects release of 321 neo LR as well as 737 MAX 9 HGW.

#109218 Increase aircraft aging speed

Posted by rubiohiguey2000 on 03.04.2018 - 13:58

This is a great idea.  NOT!


And how would you plan to deal with players who spent 10 years building their airlines who would be forced off the market within a year because you simply cannot replace 1000 aircraft every 2 month? I am talking about an average skilled player (no kraken) who after 2-3 years playing gets to reach 1000 aircraft without much trouble. Are you going to refund all those players their money spent on credits + time spent on AS at at least a minimum wage rate? Sorry to say but this idea is as silly as it can ever get.

As long as you own more than 50.1 % you are fine.
