Answered Questions and Help

How do i open a second hub?
After 6 routes you are able to open a second hub. Just click a city and the new Hub button.

When can i buy someone out on the M&A market?
After the top company have triple their value, They will be on the M&A market.


Can More Cities be added?
More Cities will be added into the game. In the next update 20 cities will be added and i am sure more will come in later updates.

Can More Aircraft be added?
More Aircrafts are being considered to be added to the game but i cant confirm there will be anymore.

Will Hub Transfers be added?
They are being considered and i can not confirm they will be added.


My Value is low what can i do to increase it?
Try using smaller aircraft instead of bigger aircraft.

How does a company go bankrupt?
When they have a considerably low value and amount of cash.

The Passenger Occupancy on most routes is incorrect can you fix this?
This is getting looked at.

Some Cities Populations are incorrect can you fix this?
This is also getting looked into.

The game is to easy can you make it more difficult?
This is being sorted out.

An opponent is beating me on one of my routes what can i do?
Try using what aircraft they are using and making your prices cheaper.

Can you make the game longer?
The dev is looking at this and considering it.

These are answered by Jack the Blog admin, Not all the questions are fully accurate and we cant confirm any of this stuff will get added or done.

  1. Whenever I reach about yr 2027 and try to turn the quarter the game crashes everytime. Please fix

  2. Same here! Since the latest update this app crashes alot now. Please fix ASAP, this game is awesome. I'm gonna throw this idea out there if you like it keep it if you don't throw it right back, but I WOULD LOVE to see this App in the Mac App Store so I could play it on my MacBook Pro!! Keep Up the great work!

  3. Thanks for your comments guys.

    @Anonymous (Jan 28 2:44am) Can i please know what IOS and device you are using?

    @Todd Can you do the same please? As for the idea, I cant guarantee it just like i said to another guy earlier on another post Tradegame lab has other ideas for the game, so i think they would rather do them before they start any big things.

  6. I'm in year 2035 and one of my routes has -108 % occupancy.loosing 17000. Turn to next month, more than doubles. Close route and restart, same problem.

    ReplyDelete
  7. When will the next version be out? What aircrafts will be included?

    ReplyDelete
  8. First of all: Great game!! But I have questions / hints...
    - Under which circumstances can I buy a company in the M&A market (e.g. My own value must be double to other company, I have to have triple money regarding opponents value, ...)
    - Can some more planes be added? Miss a plane beetween 440 seats (A340-600) and jumbo (524 seats) or MD11, DC10 and of course the Airbus 350
    - Overall switch for increase / decrease prices (e.g. Decrease all economy fares by 5% due to passenger shortage)
    Again: Awesome game! Thx a lot for your hard work

  9. @Samuel After you have got 8+ routes on your first hub click the new hub button.

    @Anonymous (Jan 28 2:34pm) With your fist question i myself am unsure, But i think it is double there company value and there value. Your second question, Adding more planes into the game is being considered but what planes i don't know.

    @Anonymous (Jan 28 2:22pm) I dont know when the next update is out as it has not been completed yet. As for aircrafts, it has not been confirmed that there will be any aircrafts in he next update, Only airports.

    @Anonymous (Jan 28 2:13pm) What route is this exactly?

    @Todd Thanks i will see what the dev says.

    Thanks for your replies guys, I will make sure the dev is checking up on this page. In the mean time please keep your comments coming, And don't forget to review and recommend this game to your friends on itunes.

    @Grosi Thanks, I cant confirm that it will be added but i'm sure that it might be considered.

  10. @jack,
    London-geneva. I made a screen shot which I can mail to you if it helps. The route operated fine in the beginning, but now plays up. It currently stands at -807%.
    (anonymous@2:13)

  11. Please change/ edit/ explain the following:
    1. The passenger loads are not real. I won't go in depth and give real world examples but they need to be changed.
    2/ Thois game needs to support fuel cost ... seriously. Like fuel price changes making some routes less proftible and an added challenge to the game when the cost of fuel is going up. And this will also make it mor eporifitable to fly certain planes depending on their fuel effiency
    3. I think you guys could suuport hub transfer like an airline based in Singapore gets addional loads when passnegers fly that airline from Austrilia and continue their journey on to London. ( What Emirates does really well )

    Please adress these issues alsl I notice the game crashes when your TOO succesful ( 130 A380, 101 - 777-300er, and another 80 various wide bodies )

    ReplyDelete
  12. @Alex No need for a pic i shall tell the dev of this problem when i get the chance to.

    @Anonymous (Jan 29 2:59am) (Q1)There is not a way to get the actually get the real passenger loads, so they are just estimated. (Q2) Fuel costs would come under maintenance. (Q3) Hub transfers are being considered and might be added in a later update.

    Thanks for your questions guys. Also feel free to tell us what you think of the game.

    ReplyDelete
  13. And also how does the fuel cost factor in? MAybe, when openning a route it will have the estimated fuel cost and the price of the fuel for that quarter or the company can in advance by "X" amount of fuel when fuel is cheap then use the fuel bought to fly the routes. Please explain more about the fuel .

    I think the passenger load can be improved by at leas 1.5 times.


    The 777-200LR could be added !

    ReplyDelete
  14. The game is cool, no probs there. But it does seem to be that when you get too successful like anonymous@2:59 said, the game either crashes or creates a problem (like my london-geneva).

    The one thing that would help specially when further in the game is a function to cilck on a city and to see all routes from/to there. And to have more sorting options in the routepages. I.e sort by a/c type, routes with competition, and when routes are underperforming, during the report after a turn an alert to say: please check route x-y, sudden drop in revenue by 25% or something like that.
    Cause when you have over 200 routes, you don't want to check them all every time...

  15. Hey I have the newest Version of the Game, but my passenger numbers are under the starting level if I play for more then 20 years this is really annoying because it stops me from expanding and takes fun out of the game, but otherwise great idea
    I would also like a version of the game for the Mac app store because it would be a great game for the computer.
    I would also like that hubs like Dubai New York and London would have transit passengers which increase the travelers number

    But it is a great game keep up the great work !

    ReplyDelete
  16. @Anonymous (Jan 29 8:11Pm) Fuel cost would be included as maintenance.

    @Alex What city was your first hub?, You can already see what other companies are at that city.

    @Anonymous (Jan 29 2:21Pm) Have you tried using smaller planes?, If you use big planes on routes the chances are that you will lose money. Try using 737s and A320-21s.

    ReplyDelete
  17. wait so does fuel cost vary in terms of different prices every cost and the type of plane used??? Because if fuel does affect the cost then I do see the
    point of not always flying into a destination the max. amount of time and only fly tjo the destination to meet the demand. That would make sense so the fuel also depends on what type of plane is used for the trip??? Please tell me more about this. Also why does my game crash in the year 2046 ? The details: I own more than 200 planes ( think A380 , 77W) with more than 188 routes and 6 hubs with more than 12 flightss out of each hub and all the companies ( think 8) have gone bankrupt but 2 companeis. It always crashes when I turn the quarter. Pity, worked so hard to make that airline but now it doesn work. Please adress all of my question, comments etc. Also when is the next update and do consider adding the 777-200LR and please support the hub transfer as many airlines depnds on it ( I know this beause I use to work for Qatar Airways and I now work for Singapore Airlines

    ReplyDelete
  18. Just reading the previous comments about fuel I would like to emphasze his point to improve this game. I think the fuel cost factor should be a very big factor in the game along with airlines prepurchasing a lot of gas so they can operate for the quarter. I know this from real expirenexe as I work for Emirates and our biggest expenses have always been fuel so I think fuel should be empashzed more.

    Great game by the way but you guys messed up the range. The A340-500 can fly longer then the 777-300ER-- I know this cause I deal with these aircrafts all the time when planning out the routes for Emirates even though the computer does most of these now

    ReplyDelete
  19. I am the person above that works for Emirates and I wanted to add on a question.. How big does fuell cost currently play a role in this game??? DEpending on the role the we know if there are advantages of decrteasing frequency, using bigger planes or more fuel effiecnet plane. I htink tthe plane description should have a fuel effinecy fact too or else it's no brainer to buy Airbus ( They are always cheaper and prob. better) A330-200 flys longer, holds more, cheaper when compared with the 767-200er

    ReplyDelete
  20. Its possible to make a Ranking for Best Airlineroutes (people), (Profit) Overall ( AI and Players ) ?

    ReplyDelete
  21. does service even factor into the airline buisness???? I think it a waste of money also maybe perhaps passenger loads could be improved and maybe stopover is a good idea. Pleae add the 200LR and change the picture of theA330. and maybe you guys can allow airline to have duty free choices and food and drinks for sale ( easyjet sells drinks on its flight). Whens the next update??? Thanks man

    ReplyDelete
  22. @Anonymous (Jan 30 5:41AM) If there was no service Airlines wouldn't even move, It is very important, Service is needed in Aviation. We cant say when the next update will be ready as when we release it to apple which i don't know when it will be apple take time to review an update to check it out before they release it.

  24. planes ordered are sometimes included in your fleet...and when the ordered ones arrive and you're gonna use them. it says "you have no more planes" PLease fix...also the Crash problem...

    Thanks for the great game. it's very addictive...sometimes i forget to smoke because am busy with my aircrafts...great substitute for smoking. haha

  26. Really like the game, spent hours on this already. How does competetion come into play? I have been #1 for both passanger and value for many years, but my competetor still survive. I slashed price of my competing price to half of my competitors but looks like they can still hang on to their passangers. Doesn't make a lot of sense to me...

    ReplyDelete
  27. I also have the problem when planes arrive in the quarter/turn report (you know it goes da-ding and shows the list), yet when I go to use them they disappeared.

    I'm thinking it's related to the renewal of planes? How do you renew them - ie in at1 you bought new planes and they replaced the oldest ones first then your new routes would operate using the older planes or you cold sell them - I can't seem to do this for AT2

    Cheers

  30. Hi Jack, I have the same problem I think the problem is I am just everywhere better I have better service lower price higher frequency on routes and the passengers still fly with my opponent, I went on his routes which are most profitable for him and tried to destroy him but it is impossible. I am now in 2050 and his value is still rising and my also and I his value is then 37,000,000 so then my value must be 74,000,000 and also cash? how is that possible? I have nearly every route and cargo and so on and I do not know how to get this done....at the beginning I can buy 6 companies and at the end it is nearly impossible. and I think you should think about some R&D option where you can keep the game more alive, some research on upgrades or so. And most important I think you should give an option in the routes where you can sort better like businessclass and so on....and you should write on the route like when you buy it 2319passengers/week! And on top of it you should probably think about an option that you can hire for some bugs/month a Routemanager or so, because I have now 259 routes and I loose the fun on the game, because I need nearly half an hour on every turn just to keep it profitable and you should give the OPTION so everybody can decide if he wants to or not....that are just my ideas and impressions, big AT player 1 and 2 so keep on going with your good work!

  33. @jack @5:35,
    Sorry, but the a/c ordered being added to the fleet happens with me as well. If I order p.e. 5 A321s, and in the turn when they are being delivered I order 5 more 321s, it will show 5 unused and 5 ordered in the list, but I can assign 10 a/c straight away. 2 turns later, the delivery report pops up, but the a/c are not available, as they are already in use. i never complained, because it means I get my a/c earlier!

  34. This game is great, i love it, but i have several suggestions and reports:

    1.The real occupancy is very fake, for example: Avianca does more than 6 flights a week from Bogota to Madrid, and Iberia also flies that route 7 times per week, and in the game the occupancy is just 1531/Week (and they use a340-600, and a330).

    2.There are not many aircraft families and some of them are incomplete, add:
    Boeing 717-200, Boeing 737-700ER, Boeing 737-900ER, Boeing 747-400ER. Boeing 747-8I, Boeing 747-8F, Boeing 777-200, Boeing 777-200LR, Boeing 787-3, Boeing 757-200, Boeing 757-300, Airbus Industrie A350-800, Airbus Industrie A350-900, Airbus Industrie A350-1000, Dassault Mercure, Dash 8 Q100, Dash 8 Q200, Dash 8 Q300, Dash 8 Q400, Erj-135, Erj-140, Erj-145, E-170, E-175, E-190, E-195, ATR-42, ATR-72, Fokker 50, Fokker 70, Fokker 100, Sukhoi Superjet MRJ90.

    3.You should add the following destinations: Mendoza, Cordoba, Arequipa, Trujillo, Calama, Copiapo, Quito, Guayaquil, Medellin, Cali, Cartagena, Barranquilla, Maracaibo, Santa Marta, Valencia,VEN, Rio de janeiro, Florianopolis, Curitiba, Curacao, Fortaleza, Recife, Belo Horizonte, Brasilia, Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Guadalajara, Monterrey, Tijuana, Veracruz, Punta Cana, St.Marteen, St.Thomas, Port of spain, Oranjestas(Aruba), Ft.Lauderdale, Ft.Myers, Tampa, Savannah, Columbus(OH), Cleveland, Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky, Memphis, Salt Lake City, Portland, Detroit, Edmonton, Calgary, Halifax, Fairbanks, Kahului, Kona, Quebec, Providenciales, Providence, Bridgetown, Nassau, Sault Ste.Marie, Berlin, Munich, Hamburg, Stuttgart, Sevilla, Malaga, Alicante, Valencia,ES, Barcelona, Porto, Faro, Manchester, Cork, Shannon, Reykjavik, St.Petersburg, Luxor, Addis Ababa, Abuja, Accra, Cape Town, Bangalore, Guangzhou, Nagoya, Fukuoka, Brisbane, Adelaide, etc...

    4.You shoud add alliances, and the ability to create a cargo airline without the need to have Three hubs, or without the need to have passenger services.

    5.Making a lot of flights from the same hub, it should be good because you would dominate most of the traffic of the airport, it shouldnt get the demand lower.

    6.You should be able to customize your livery.

    Thanks, great game, When is the next update coming and what cities and aircraft will be included?, thanks

    ReplyDelete
  35. so is the next update like in a month or like a few days or what?

    also, reading the comment about fuel , so if we decrease frequency so it meets the demands ( not over meets the demand by like 300 seats per week) we attcaully save money or is it still the same. Also, I like that persons idea of fuel effiency and someone elses idea of buying / fuel hedging.

    Also add more Chinese and European cities. You could add Middle eastern cities to like Amman, Jordan Abu Dhabi, UAE Mecca, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia

    China : Qingdao, Guanzhou, Nanjing,


    Also why don't you guys have the option of adding" duty free" and " Buy on Board" like real airlines ?? You could consider airlines having a choice to what airport to flyinto ( Gatwick or Heathrow etc)

    It be cooler if there was also the government that apporves route and you can purchase a route so you have no compeitots on that route

    ReplyDelete
  36. All ideas sound cool above but this game has a MAJOR flaw

    In real life airlines don't dedicate one plane per route . I think the game should support multiple different types of aircraft on a specific route to better meet the demand ( tokoyo to Vancouver can be someday a 777-200er and other day a A330). Also the game should allow u to maximize aircraft use ( this plane after completing London to Doha - your hub city- you use that same plane for a route to either a city nearby - Dubai- or to a place like Singapore) ; airplanes army assigned a specific route and the load should be increase by at least 1.75- 3.5 times .please adress

    ReplyDelete
  37. all comments sound cool above but when's the next update to see these( if we are going to )

    MAybe landing and takeoff charges to further make airlines flying to what they meet the demands and use bigger planes to land more often? nice game btw

    ReplyDelete
  38. Hi. I need help to increase Value. I cannot increase the value of my airline. I have #1 passengers since turn 1, but value does not increase and my opponents since first turn are higher in Value. Are there any tips or suggestions to increase Value?? Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  39. @fbernall

    hi...you should buy bigger planes like A380s/ 747s and start trans atlantic and trans pacific routes... the more you have expensive planes the higher the value of your company. also start to operate hotels in key cities like paris, london frankfurt, new york and LA etc...limousine buses are also good...creating cago routes helps too...good luck! we should ask them to create a fan page on facebook for this great game!! Go AT2..

  40. How to deal with the trending in passenger numbers?

    ReplyDelete
  41. @Almost Everyone Thanks for letting us know about the problems. Passenger occupancy is getting looked at. Bugs are getting fixed and things like Fuel costs, Airline logos and Airplanes are being considered.

    An update was released yesterday which hopefully should fix some bugs.

    As for what will be in the next update. More cities will be added and maybe some more bug fixes.

    @fbernall Planes dont arrive to turn 2. Also dont start of with the bigger planes like the anonymous says above. Use smaller ones that have a more greater chance of getting passengers.

    @Anonymous (Feb 3 3:28am) I like the idea of making the plane do short routes after a long one. But adding this into the game is unrealistic. It would just be to complecated.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Okay , so does frequency attcually even matter like does it "cost" more if I fly to the destination the max amount of time in which it over meets the demand? Btw, I like the idea of landing charges so it encourages airlines to buy bigger planes to save on landing charges. Also, I think I have a solution to "@Anonymous (Feb 3 3:28am) I like the idea of making the plane do short routes after a long one. But adding this into the game is unrealistic. It would just be to complecated."

    Heres what I think is doable. First, figue out how long a flight is so the game caulucates the flight time base on distance and its cruising speed ( another plus to buy boieng or airbus as airbus is always cheaper) then set the max hours the plane can fly in a week ( 18 hours per day max ) so a plane can therfore fly 126 hours per week. Then, when creating a new route and assinging planes the screen will indicate how many "hours" this plane has left to fly for the week. Example: Singapore to London ( a round trip is roughly 28 hours - inclueds layover at Heathrow) and you deicide to opeated that sector 3 times a week so theroefore the plane lodges in 84 hours and thus it has 42 hours left. Then, you can create a route to Perth ( roughly 11 hours round trip including layover) and you serve that route by that plane 3 times a week. So I hope you get it as it might sound confusing. Bascailly I am trying to say you measure the plane by the max amount of hours it can fly in a week including airport layover and maintence( EMirates does 18 hours per day average). And to open a new route, you don't select two cities but you select the specific plane to oen a new route thus you can control what route this plane flies into and theres like a "caluclaotr" on the screen to create a new route that indicates how many hours the plane can fly . The flight time don't have to be realistic ( head wind and delays - delays would be pretty cool though) but they should be caluclated based on distance and crusing speed. 777-300er cruise to up to 600 mph while A320 cruise at like 400MPH so it's another advantage and factor when it comes to buying planes. Please reply whether you get it or not because I think my idea is doable if it's unclear I can try and rexpalin. Please check with the creator for my idea too, please!

    ReplyDelete
  43. okay, I noticed the comment above could be complicated so I will restate the openning new route screen.

    1. To create a new route you go to your airplane list and choose a specific plane ( your 2nd A340-600 ie ) then a new screen opos out for that plane and that is where you can click something like "new route".
    2. Then you select two cities you wish to fly to and from and the freuqnecy. Then theres like a "calucaltor" which says like you are over the frequency by "2hours" please decrease your frequency or it can say something like " this plane has another 45 hours left for the week. And because it has extra hours, you can open a new route using that speicific plane that meet the time constraints.

    This idea also utlizes plane better esspecailly if you own big planes durig a passenger downturn ( trend = -5.7% )

    New example :
    You own an A380 ( configued to 450 seats) and your based in SIngapore so :
    you cick on the A380 and select a route and you select SIngapore Tokoyo with a 2000 passenger demand so you fly there 4 timmes a week ( below the demand) and a round trip journey for this is 16 hours so the plane has flown 64 hours. BTW I calucalte this based on a plane flying a max of 126 hours a week ( 18 hours of pure flying a day -- resonalbe in the industry today)...
    2. You relaize this palne still has 62 hours of flying left for the week so do utilize it to the max you deciede to use this plane for Doha with a demand of 1900 passgners a week and you fly there 4 times a week ( about 62 hours of flying ) thus this A380 serves two seperate routes and it's utilizing is the max( money's worth of plane) and the fun isn't taken away by buying A380/ 77W and not being able to utilzie then effiencetly during a downturn of passenger. I hope this is clearer?

    Oh yeah and the route ( SIngapore to Tokoyo) can also be flown by another plane at the same time simitlesley so lets say that by fliyng there 4 times a week you don't meet the demand ( 200 passengers off) and you have a A340-600 in your fleet with 20 hours of flight tiem left for the week so you clieck on that plane and select it to also fly the Singapore Tokoyo sector. Also now to view profit it's no longer buy routes but by planes :D hope you can do this as I think it's doable

    ReplyDelete
  44. "GAndrew", I am the one who suggested that idea and I have to say your a complete genius in comming up with that as I think no one would have thought of that and you idea attucally sounds simple. Hope they do it though! thanks for helping me adress a point . I get your idea quit well like to open a route you don't click two cities but you select the specific plane

    Thanks Bud!

  45. Great Game, i have both. good work.

    BUT:
    1. Bankruptcy bug fix, isn't fixed at all. From one moment to the other i/the ai is loosing money like hell! And this is happening mostly to the big airlines..

    2. AI is still too bad, most of them are bankrupted after five years of playing. -> There are still many good routes to acquire..

    3. National vs. International Routes, i never was able to build a successful domestic airline (it works for sometime, and from one moment to the other (during 2Years) i was going from 250k/Q revenue to -600k/Q?!?).

    4. How to get in competition on a route? i have a route, i put all prices down, my competitor has its prices way above mine, but he has way more passengers!

    5. Europe is way to small, you can't really build a successful half domestic airline in Europe. this is no problem in the US or ASIA, but wont work in EU ;(

    Technical stuff:
    - if i buy new planes, the old ones should be replaced automatically, so that the unused planes are the old ones.
    - You can arrange the routes by hub, by profit, occupied and by date. BUT what is missing is by plane, by distance or by competitors

  48. @Anonymous (Feb 4 12:11pm) Here is my replies to your questions,
    1. Some more stuff needs sorting out to fix the bug.
    2. It is getting updated.
    3. Try it with smaller planes and make sure your in a region of the world with lots of airports.
    4. Try using a big plane on the route. Preferably not the A380 though.
    5. Europe has around the same amount of cities as Asia.
    Technical Stuff
    - The old planes do get replaced automatically, The switch will happen a few turns after the game notifies you that a plane is getting old. As long as you have a plane in your inventory when the old plane finally get removed it should auto switch for a new one.
    - I think the dev is working on more graphs.

    @Anonymous (Feb 4 1:03) Due to legal issues involving copyright these sought of things cant be added straight away. But im sure the dev is working on it.

    ReplyDelete
  49. why wasn't my suggestion answered though?
    okay, I noticed the comment above could be complicated so I will restate the openning new route screen.

    1. To create a new route you go to your airplane list and choose a specific plane ( your 2nd A340-600 ie ) then a new screen opos out for that plane and that is where you can click something like "new route".
    2. Then you select two cities you wish to fly to and from and the freuqnecy. Then theres like a "calucaltor" which says like you are over the frequency by "2hours" please decrease your frequency or it can say something like " this plane has another 45 hours left for the week. And because it has extra hours, you can open a new route using that speicific plane that meet the time constraints.

    This idea also utlizes plane better esspecailly if you own big planes durig a passenger downturn ( trend = -5.7% )

    New example :
    You own an A380 ( configued to 450 seats) and your based in SIngapore so :
    you cick on the A380 and select a route and you select SIngapore Tokoyo with a 2000 passenger demand so you fly there 4 timmes a week ( below the demand) and a round trip journey for this is 16 hours so the plane has flown 64 hours. BTW I calucalte this based on a plane flying a max of 126 hours a week ( 18 hours of pure flying a day -- resonalbe in the industry today)...
    2. You relaize this palne still has 62 hours of flying left for the week so do utilize it to the max you deciede to use this plane for Doha with a demand of 1900 passgners a week and you fly there 4 times a week ( about 62 hours of flying ) thus this A380 serves two seperate routes and it's utilizing is the max( money's worth of plane) and the fun isn't taken away by buying A380/ 77W and not being able to utilzie then effiencetly during a downturn of passenger. I hope this is clearer?

    Oh yeah and the route ( SIngapore to Tokoyo) can also be flown by another plane at the same time simitlesley so lets say that by fliyng there 4 times a week you don't meet the demand ( 200 passengers off) and you have a A340-600 in your fleet with 20 hours of flight tiem left for the week so you clieck on that plane and select it to also fly the Singapore Tokoyo sector. Also now to view profit it's no longer buy routes but by planes :D hope you can do this as I think it's doable

  51. @GAndrew Sorry i didnt answer your i was in a rush and didnt get the chance to read all of the comments. In My Opinion the way you set up routes now is the best and simplest route. When making the game lots of ideas were put up but we settled for the one in the game at the moment. Adding this feature into the game would make setting up a route very timely. But thanks for the idea and i am sure some sort of thing similar to your idea might be added in the far future.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Jack, it's okay ; we all have busy lives. From my point of view though I think the game should focus on relaism and I don't think it will attucally make setting up a route very timel. But, do you perosnally think my proposal is a good idea though because the problem with the game is the unsteady passenger rate ( including low demands) thus it makes it hard for us ( players) to buy aircrafts ( small aircraft = no range, large aircraft = we are paying extra for seats we don't need). THis would make our airline operate effiencty. Btw, I saw a question earlier about frequency and so does frequency attucally matter like does it cost more to fly to the destination more often and I like anonymous's idea about landing charges and takeoff charges.

    Idk if this is a bug but when you have competiors ( hate it ) how come when your fare is better ( lower) and better service you don't get all the custermers and sometimes the compeitor gets more customer. Also are you guys considering transit passengers and what cities do you guys planon adding on and when can we see it?

    Thanks Jack !

  53. @GAndrew I do think it is a good idea though. With you question about the competitor on the same route, Check what Aircraft they are using and get it or a similar one.

  64. Love the game very addictive!!

    Have upgraded to latest version but am experiencing a huge decline in profitability and cash. in the most recent example my profit dived but when looking at the routes my occupancy rates hadn't moved & i had not changed any of the setting associated with maintenance, advertising etc.

    I operate similar/same planes on all routes where I have competitors

    Any thoughts??

    As an aside I find it really frustrating that you operate the same plane as a competitor on a route, you offer A class service and the lowest ticket price but the AI continues to offer the complete opposite and can achieve greater occupany rates and in turn remain profitable on these routes.

    If I try to flood the route with capacity to squeeze them out of the market their occupancy rate increases.

    In reality your competitors would at least match your fare price otherwise would lose flyers.

    Why are we limited to 35 hubs? once you achieve particular preset gateopeners you should be able to open more hubs. ie achieve 10 million pax & you can then open 5 more hubs etc

    Finally why is that when you start a game there is a significant starting difference between the value of my company and my Ai competitors?

    Sorry I know alot of feedback but unlike a lot of app providers out there you guys listen to what your supporters say and make a genuine effort to continue to improve and tweak your platform.

    Thanks heaps for providing me with many lost hours absorded in this app.

    @Macnoticias Im sure the dev would be happy but i am not the dev, You will have to wait for him to reply to your email.

    @Canardly Im sure that is a bug, Hopefully it can be fixed.
    With the competitors on routes, Dont meen to sound rude but I have to keep saying this, Try and either (A)Do what they are doing or (B) Get a smaller aircraft.
    There are 35 Hubs because that is how much the dev thought would be needed.
    Lastly I am unsure why there is a difference at the start.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Regarding the issue raised by Canardly concerning competition on routes:

    The issue is not about how to deal with that scenario in the game but rather that the behavior of the game is unrealistic. Imagine carrier A and B fly one route and A charges $500 whereas B charges $200, in reality A would have to lower their fare immediately or B would drive A out of competition. But that's not what happens in the game. A continues to fly the route with the much high fare and the same aircraft as B and can remain profitable regardless of the fare offered by B.

  70. I agree with Canardly and what anonymous said. The game needs to be more realistic with how occ works on routes- AirTycoon1 worked better with this. It's frustrating when you are offering a superior product and better price you should have more people on your route than the competition.

    @Todd Tate
    AT2 uses allot of memory. Make sure that you have no apps active in the background (Or a low amount) and that you have the latest firmware. Older devices like the 3G and 2gen iTouch may crash more earlier due to there smaller graphics cards.

    Jack has already answered this question. He said that fuel cost is included in your maintenance cost. We can't answer every question as we are busy doing other stuff. We manage this site in our spare time and only get 10 minutes to look at it each day. I hope you understand.

    @Anonymous (Feb 11,2011 8.18pm)
    The reason that you dont make a profit when your aircraft is 50% full is that the money you earn from that 50% is less then the amount of money you are spending for maintenance to run the route.

    Also, remember that not all bugs are the developers fault. It is usually brought in by apples software updates. The codes change all the time and developers don't always get the chance to read what was done.

    @Anonymous (Feb 21 2011 8:20PM)

  94. Please add aircraft renting and leasing in which you can lease out your aircraft or lease another airlines aircraft and support buying 2nd airplanes also please support fuel heding and takeoff slots. Add 200LR

    Please add more Chinese cities ( fastest growing aviation market too:D)
    and you could add more US cities ( well if you want to opearate like United airlines) and add more Austrilian cities ( brisbane etc) and add more euopean cities and add Amman , Jordan and Abu Dhabi, UAE

    Please increase loads too!!!!!!! can't wait for the update this week :D

    ReplyDelete
  95. People get the facts straight! it's hard to get the exact realistic load. I work for British Airways and I can tell you something to prove it. In the game Kular Lumpar to London has more passengrs than Singapore to London ( they are just 100 miles apart but thats not the reality. In reality they have like 3 daily flights from Kular Lumpar to London while Singapore has well lets see Qantas ( one daily A380) British Airways ( 747-400/ 772 2-3 times daily) and Singapore Airlines ( 2 daily A380 and 1 daily 77W) and not to mention the myraid of passengers who takes the emirates and qatar airways flight from Singapore to London

    btw because I focus on the Kangroo Route I think the game should support the lucrative Kangroo route by allowing hub transfer

  96. This game is ASWESOME and i play it to pass time while waiting for passengers to get on and i am one with paperwork -- You guesssed it I am a commercial piolt for Easyjet based in GAtwick and I hope the game can support GAndrew's idea because thats how Easyjet works

    Yesterday my schedule was
    Gatwixk- Rome- Amsterdam- Paris - Gatwick Notice how eefiecnt Easyjet plans out their flights and how ineffiecnt this game plans out the flight anyway great game though as I love flying too

    Please add Millan into the game -- I love flying there along with Barcelona !

  97. I like AT2 a lot. Just like the original though, I am annoyed at the bias passengers have for smaller airplanes, even going as far as paying higher fares to ride smaller planes.

    In real life, fares being equal, I think most people would rather fly a 737 or A320 over a CRJ if the flight is more than an hour or two. And we'd prefer to fly a 777 over a 737 on a flight more than four hours.

    To make it easier, I'd rather see passengers flock to lowest fare offered. Fares being equal, passengers choose the bigger airplane.

    In any event, good job!

  98. @Anonymous (Feb 13, 2011 11.43pm)
    Thanks for the city's.
    The 747-400ER isn't really a successful plane. In fact only 6 where ever made and they all went to Qantas. Apart from the extra range it isn't really much different to the 747-400. If another 747 was to be introduced it would probably be the 747-8(Was announced in 2005 and is now taking orders) or the A350 which is also coming soon.

    @Anonymous (Feb 14, 2011 2.06am)
    I like your idea about renting and leasing aircraft but am not sure how that will be done, as-well as the take-off slots idea.
    The 777-200LR is a nice aircraft and would be a great addition to the game. It would be a costly plane though due to its long range.

    As I said, more destinations are coming soon and you will see then what is added then.

    @Anonymous (Feb 14, 2011 6:29am)
    I agree on this topic and think that the London-Singapore route should be more in-forced, then maybe flights from Singapore to Perth should be more common. There's 6 flights from . I usually set up flight on these routes as there the ones I fly often but aren't too realistic. I will let the developer know about this (I think I told him some point recently).

    @Anonymous (Feb 14, 2011 6.33am)
    Great to here that a pilot like your-self likes the game. Maybe Madrid and Barcelona will be in the next update...You'll have to wait and see.

    Passengers aren't paying more to fly on a smaller plane, there just paying the price you ask because the flight capacity is 100%. If you were to have a bigger plane then the passengers will be paying less as you would be charging less so to fill your plane. Fairs would only be equal if you were to have a competitor on the market.

    I am glad you enjoy the game.

    Thanks for teh reply
    Building up on your comment maybe the lucrative route ( Kangroo Route - do you know what i am talking about) should have more profit but yet more compeitiors as opposed to the more common routes that arn't lucrative but people just take it. Singapore to London for example should have a lot more people and compeitors then say SIngapore to PAris in which it' true in real life but the game says otherwise. Maybe the delvoper can manulally edit load for famous/ lucrative routes like the Kangroo rOutes( but this means hub transfer/ fuel stop at places like SIngapore and Dubai). Also, how about the idea of secondary airport in order for airlines to save money by fliying into smaller airport but they loose some passgner loads

    MAybe the game can also support duty free and buy on board menu like what budget airlines do ( $5.00 for a meal) and what Untied airlines does on their domestic flight ($7.00 for a disgusting - no offence- sandwitch)

  101. Hi there,

    Couple of feature requests:

    1: When adding a new plane to a route, can you preset the First Class/Business/Economy seating for that specific plane some how? Perhaps previous used? Maybe use sliders? When buying large amounts of planes, it becomes cumbersome to constantly change it.

    2: Post Merger routes
    When you merge with an airline, it's difficult/cumbersome to adjust the routes since you don't know where it is.. or you might have an A318 and a CRJ700 on the same route post merger.. anyway you can automatically update it?

    ---

    Game crashes: I find that by the time you get to about a $10B valuation the game begins to crash often. I"m on the latest iOS on an iPod Touch 3G, 8GB. Any way I can send you a saved game for analysis?

  102. this passenger load is utterly unaccetpable as they are to low and downturn in the market = just go die ( your in trouble esspecailly with stupid comeptiors still wanting to comepete on a route with no money or passenger

    Also, you are biased to the comeptiors, no matter what they win if they compete with you and you miscalcualte their earings/ load
    Please expalin this
    LAs Vegas to PAris - 1700 per week
    They use an A380 configued at 500 seats and yet with 5 weekly flights thats 2500 passengers!

  105. Please guys no more on the ’GAndrews' idea. We have already replied to it.

    With the duty free that usually would be more to do with the airport then airlines. An buying on board depends on how it would work. Usually it is only on budget airlines. If this idea was to be included there would have to be an option if you want to either be a Budget or Non Bidget airline.

    ReplyDelete
  106. No, no , duty free is also on airplane just have an option and buy on board is on many US carriers too and maybe have landing charges and as others have said the loads are not realsitic take a real life example they have so much more incrase the load by 3 times then comptition would also be acceptable right now you have competition by a STUPID competitiors ( look you arn't going to earn a lot etiher) you are dead as the route isn't profitiable ( well it is but not a lot) and please address all my issues as it is disresceptiful if you only adress some

  107. @Anonymous (Feb 18 2;47Am) we don't mean to seem "disrespectful" its that there are so much questions that we only have the time to answer and consider some of them. The passenger realism is getting sorted out as I ha said at the top in questions that I have already answered. Please look at the questions we have already answered before asking it. Landing charges would cone under management as I have specified before. With Duty Free as it is Us only I do t think it will be added to the game. Duty free is usually only on domestic flight and seeming that the game is more about international flights I dont think it will fit in. At the moment the dev is busy as it is and these little things are well the last things on his mind. He is trying to add events, new destinations, new plane families, Multiplayer. All of them are more important then duty free etc.

    Please dont say that we are disrespectful or we might just ignore your question. Dont forget we do this in our spare tine and we have our own personal life.

  108. This is one of my most favourite game on iDevice.
    There is kne thig that i would love to be included in upcoming updates. Can you guys please enable the feature that old aircrafts will automatically be replaced by newly purchased aircrafts (of te same mofel) just like in airtycoon 1? At some point i have like 150+ route and it takes lots and lots of time to look for the exact route and change the aircraft lol. Thanks

  109. hey. why isn't the update showing up on the app store and i think more asian cities need to be added and i think the only aircraft needed to be added is the 77L like what others said before and maybe the A350/ 747-800 andbtw the 787-300 project is cancelled ...

  110. Oliver Cooksey(Admin)February 18, 2011 at 6:30 AM

    The A350 and 747-800 are currently projects and are non existent at this time. The developer can not add airplanes that have static stats (Changing).

    The Update will show up soon.

    If you have spare versions of the same aircraft in stock, the aircraft will automatically be replaced.

  111. Just an FYI/ correction to the Admin- Duty free is not just a us thing, it's offered on every international flight and airline I have bee on. Duty free is the sale of merchandise- cigarettes, alcohol, other random stuff- usually at a substantial savings because the items are being sold to be taken out of the country and thus have not had any taxes (I.e. Import taxes or sale tax) applied against them which is where the savings comes in.

    I think what you mean to reference is the BOB or buy on board for food and drinks that many US airlines are doing- true this is many a US thing but look at other airlines such as EasyJET or Rynair, both EU based and offer for purchase- it seems odd to rule out a feature that you repeatedly get requests just because it's "a us thing"..

    Which leads me to my last comment- the attitude at times given to fans, such as saying not to mention a topic anymore, is off putting. You need to remember we are why your game us as successfull as it is- I won't promote a game or buy anything more if all I am given is attitude for making comments.

    BTW you guys should find a place an create a free forum so your fans can talk about the game and it would be easier for you to reply as well.

    I appologise for our rudeness. I Personally like the Duty free thing...Jack just doesn't understand.

    With the forum Idea...THATS GREAT!!! So much in fact that I am setting one up right now for you guys. I have a question though. How would you guys like it to be set up?

  113. Thanks for your reply anonymous. In all my time flying I have only had that sort of duty free on planes that are budget.

    "Which leads me to my last comment- the attitude at times given to fans, such as saying not to mention a topic anymore, is off putting.

    We try to never give an attitude to our users. It is just most of the time we have to go over the same thing we have said over and over again. But you also have to remember that human beings will reply negatively if they are spoken to negatively. I think the topic your referring to is the GAndrews idea. We had said over and over that it had been considered but was not guaranteed to be added to the game as there were much more important things to add, like multiplayer. We are bot going to be able to please everyone,

    Please understand that I am a human being and I will reply as a human being. Also please know that we will not reply to questions that have been answered previously. Please guys have a look to see if your question has been answered before you ask it. It will save you guys and us a lot of time.

  114. if you cant add planes that are currently nonexistant than how come you have the 787-3 which there are no plans to produce yet and is still in design stage... also maybe add more destinations in south america and africa. cities like fortaleza kinshasa new orleans yekatrinberg. also maybe Embraer planes and bombi dash series

  117. Well, Jack, I don't know what carriers you take but every airline I fly has duty free from Easyjet to Air China and Singpaore Airlines to Qantas all have duty free! also Buy on board is now also popular on some European carriers (SAS, Irebia)

    Also there should be an option thats like you want to use the jetway( more expensivee) or use the stairs ( cheaper but poor cusomer satfstifcation)

    Also the topic on budget airline, you should do Buy on Board without a "budget airline mode" just set your prices low services to "E" then Buy on Board and compete with full service carrier

    ReplyDelete
  118. @Franciesco Sorry but at the moment the games dev is focused on IOS and seeming that it is a small team it would take a long time to bring the game to Android.

    @Anomymous (Feb 18 9:54Pm - 9:57pm) More planes are going to e added to the game. With your airport theory it's a good idea but I can't really see it fitting into the game. And then designing a terminal just does not fot into the game. Remember this game is for running an airline not airports, we are not trying to turn this onto a 100% sim of how it would be like running an airline.

    After a while guys if we were to add all of your ideas the game would be to confusing as there would be so much to do. Sorry guys but we can't add all your ideas. Thanks for the reply anonymous.

    @Anonymous (Feb 19 5:04Pm) Tahbks for your reply. I have flown on many many many airlines in my life. British Airways, Easy Jet, Spanair, Singapore Airlines, Luthansa, Tiger, AirAsia, Pacific Blue, Garuda, and lots more that I can not remember of the top of my head. And only about 20% of the time they had inboard duty free. And that was usually either domestic or short flights to Spain and Gibraltar.Guys sorry to say but adding duty free to the game is not really a big thing. In life Duty Free barely even gains airlines a profit. If you add it to the game or won't even give you a noticeable profit. Really the dev is trying to get big things done for example Events,Multiplayer and Duty Free is not at the top of the list to get done. Thanks for your reply though.

    Guys if you could when you write a comment please add a name to it as it becomes much easier and quicker for me to reply to it.

  120. Hello people! I am quit proud as a singaporean and SIngapore Airlines A380 first officers that SIngapore and my airline has been mentioned many times and I love this game as I always try recreating Singapore Airlines ( doesn't work great though due to loads ) but i was wondering though after your recent update of the 25 cites ( not on the app store btw), well you guys continue adding on cities or is it done liek you won't add anymore cities.
    MAybe in the game you can add things onto certain aircrafts like a "bar" ( think EMirates" or like showers "think emirates again" or first class suits ( Singapore airlines :D) in which is soemthnig that brings you ahad of the competiion and custermer satsfication but the max amount of seat you can indlude decreases.

    Minor Issue : Singapore is more of a buisness city then tourist city but tourism is going up.

    I notice that when I have around 90 routes it takes a while for the game to go onto the next quarter, does this have anything to do with the crashes.

    I would see more Southern European cities:

    Skopje: Macedonia
    Sofia: Bulgaria
    Bucharest: Romania
    Ljubljana: Slovenia
    Sarajevo: Bosnia & Herzegovina
    Ankara: Turkey

  130. cool; approx how long does it take to review and apporve? grhh can't wait and can there be like more save slots? And does this update come with imrpoved passenger loads and other features or is it only new cities?

    Also, does the cruising speed of the aircraft even matter?

    ReplyDelete
  131. This update was submitted on Friday(Perth Time) so I would expect it to be out Mon-Thr. Reviewing takes about 5 days.

    This update includes some crash bugs and tweaks as-well. Accidents, weather and Multi-player will be out by the Middle of March.

    ReplyDelete
  132. wait, are you guys Austrilains since the time you gave was Perth ( anyway ramdom comment). Accidents like air crash collsions then that means there needs to be an insurance option and weather causes delay but how well that show up on the game like can you elborate on that and whens the next time new cities will be added ( if you guys are doing it).
    Will multi-player cuz crashes on older devices because of the hardware?

    ReplyDelete
  133. Yes we live in Australia.

    Not sure if an insurance thing will be put in. I don't think that airlines are insured like that anyway.

    Weather will cause flights to be canceled or delayed (Like the December problem).

    We are not sure when the next set of destinations will be added.

    Multi-player shouldn't cause problems as it will involve the same amount of data as a general game with 4 players.

  134. When was the update sent to apple to be reviewed?

    ReplyDelete
  135. Hi guys! Waiting impatiently for next updates... :-)) Would it be possible to add Antonow Mrija or lovely Concord (very high price but lots of revenues when flying > mach 2 from Heathrow - NYC)?
    Another question: would like to play as a premium airline, e.g. means to offer not only luxury meal but also much more space between the seats for of course extensivly prices? Keep on good job!!!

    ReplyDelete
  136. @Anonymous (Feb 20 3:24Pm) thanks for your reply. It is all down to apple as to when the update is out. Hopefully any time now. The dev is tryin to keep it to planes that are flying currently so concord and antanov prob won't be added. Thanks.

  137. but how would weather effect your operation? Like does your frequency change for that quarter?

  138. The weather will ground your flights in a certain region, meaning that you will not make a profit there.

  139. jack , what you saay in this game the A330 is the best aircraft for a fleet backbone as it seats alot and its cheap with great range ; well all airbus planes are cheaper than boieng. Also this game crashes once you own 300 aircrafts with 250 routes :O

  142. @Anomymous (Feb 21 2:58am) No, I would say the 737 an A320-21 are te best planes. I went the whole game using them once and won. So maybe that's a tactic for a few of you ;). We are trying to get that bug fixed to.

    @Anonymous (Feb 21 3:59am) I can't answer that at this time but I shall ask Sunghan

    @Anonymous (Feb 21 11:43am) Put planes on routes that are going to fill up, not be empty.

    I have not seen that game and will have a look at it. More aircraft are coming soon as-well as a whole host of new features. I am currently discussing with the developer the features that you wish for. At the moment we have a pretty big list and are trying to get out the features that were first requested on initial release. This includes Multiplayer, Weather and disasters.
    We do take note of your ideas and try our best to pass them on. I hope you understand.

  144. blog admins ; I think the bug about being to "succssfull " ( yes i am a victim too :() could have to do with the device not being able to handle so much info because i operatd 146 routes but with more than 425 aircrafts because somehow a good bug made travelling incrase by 25%!!!!! for a few quarters so there was a proliferation in passenger and maybe older device can't calucalte anymore . Also, that prolfieration is attcaully really realisitic though in terms of loads because my route demand were like real life.

  145. There is no bug in being successful. You just have to find a strategy that works.

    ReplyDelete
  146. i must diasagree with that though because this "bug" only happened once of me playing this game and it proliferated the passenger amount so your profit for each route is at leas 150K!!!!!!!!!! it's more reaistic too :D

  151. Yea usually when replacing my aircraft i will order a replacement plane when the old aircrafts age says 2 months then when the new plane comes in after four months, it will be time for the old aircraft to be decomissioned. (just a tip); also could you please in the near future add turboprops like dashes, and atrs and maybe add 757s and 717. Also ability to buy used aircraft would be nice, the plane being significantly cheaper but with a much shorter lifetime (say 10-15 years). Also please add new orleans( my home town)! Just suggestions and brainstorming.

    Is anybody able to advise, when I have around 90 routes it takes a while for the game to go onto the next quarter, does this have anything to do with the crashes.

    Also great additions with the cities but would it be possible to add more Southern European cities in particular Skopje: Macedonia and some others around the region.

    Also will the 777-LR be added?

  154. Good update guys, do you know if there are more cities to come, more southern european and asian cities would be nice. Any news on the addition of ATR and Bombardier Q Series and leasing planes rather than buying?

    Keep up the good work

    ReplyDelete
  155. I like the additions in the new update, but it crashes a lot more often now. Before it would only crash for me in free play mode deep into the game, but I have attempted 3 different games in competition mode (which never used to crash for me) and it has crashed early on in each game.

  158. Hi guys - realy love the game so if you could pass that back to the dev it would be great.

    Not had a chance to try the update yet so appologies if things have things have already been addressed and having read most of the above blog and comments I think I have a few new suggestions for a future update maybe to make the game a little more interesting ....

    What I'd really like to see is the ability to set the starting year of a new game, as in 1970 or 1980 for example, and some older planes.

    As there are already lots of airports and lots of choice when it comes to planes, it would be nice to have these fed in to an extent, based on when the airplanes entered service. (kind of like the 'new' models in air tycoon 1) which would provide some ongoing interest

    It feels like there is little difference between the planes themselves other than inital price and capacity, so again much like in tycoon 1 would suggest having variable life spans and fuel efficiency - I like the earlier idea of buying fuel in advance. having more efficient planes come to market provides an incentive to upgrade.

    An early announcement of upcoming 'new' models could provide opportuntiy to pre-order new fleets at a discounted rate?

    the next suggestion would be to provide a 'used' plane market where by upon selling a plane with 10 years lifespan remaining, this would become available to buy for all other players at a reduced rate, this could be popoulated on a periodical basis also with 'random' planes to ensure some stock availability which might nable a fledgling airline to expand quickly its routes without buying an entirely new fleet. This offers some interesting tactical approaches to playing the game.

    More suggestions regarding the planes would be to limit the ability to tweek seating changes. so on ordering a new plane the seating split between econ/bus/first class could be defined FOC (included in the order price) - once defined the seating cannot be changed without 'paying' for a refit and losing a month's flight time.

    Additionally certain makes of plane could offer 'special' deals to airlines who's home hub is in there region e.g. boeing could offer to US based airlines, airbus to european etc admittedly this would leave some regions without there perks but again offers different tacticle challenges.

    On the same principle of feeding different airplane on different years, I'd suggest the same for the airports, so in 1970 for example only the major citys and capitols would have airports, as the game progresses more become live and perhaps 'bounty's' would be offered by the town's/citys offering subsidised flight route setup costs or 'exclusive' arrangements for set periods e.g 5 years

    Lastly for now ...... i think one of the games bigest draw backs is lack of difficulty and challenge.

    This stems to an extent that all the airline start from one hub with the same number of planes.

    A few scenario's would fix this

    e.g. the Virgin challenge - mid 80's start with a number of well established airlines already in game - the equivilent of BA , AA , Pan Am , Air France etc dominating the domestic markets and starting a single 747 become the number one airline

    Easyjet challenge - mid 90's start with a number of well established airlines dominating the A and B service market - starting with a couple of used 737's become the regions number one in passenger volume within 15 years

    you get the idea .....

    Hopefully this all makes sense and is not to difficult to read.

    Keep up the good work -
    Many thanks
    Salty

  160. hi...love the great game. would like to suggest that you guys create a facebook page for this great game.

    another suggestion, i hope you guys could create an easy way to change planes once the planes reaches their "end-Time".

    like maybe, an option that we could only click yes or no.

    for example: Planes will end their lifespan in two months. would you like to order a new set of the same fleet. "yes" or "no".

    because its becoming hard to go through your inventory to check which among your fleet needs replacement.

    just a suggestion guys...and also please add cebu, Philippines to the Cities on the next update.

    cant wait for the multiplayer...i hope it'll be out sooner...greetings to the all the staff.

    I am also forever starting a new game because of the freezing of the previous game and I am experiencing crashing and I only have 30 routes , why is this happening? I just want to enjoy this game and have an airline with a large fleet and big network??

  166. Pretty disappointing that Beograd and Zagreb were added without Sarajevo, Bosnia. It seems almost discriminatory given the history of the Balkans. Perhaps this could indicate some political agenda of the game developer?

    I really hope Sarajevo is added soon, this game is wonderful and I have purchased both versions. I hope this was a detail that was overlooked and wont prevent me purchasing further versions and recommending it to others.

  167. @Mirsad.

    The developer has no political sidings. Just because a city was added in Croatia and Serbia doesn't mean that the developer doesn't like Bosnia. I will let the developer know about this request.

  170. There is limited additional explanation of concepts on the Air Tycoon 1 support web site.

    I bet your from Bonsia but afterall at the end of the day it's not a major interantaional/ avation city/ market. Seriously. Look, even China in the game on;y has 2 cities and Taiwan has 1 city and no one complained. eriously , this game focus is big international cities . Think twice

  173. @Anonymous Feb 25 10:09PM You can control one airline but can have more than one game at one. The updates will no longer be coming to AT 1 as the focus is now on 2.

    I am an Air China captian for their A321 and i woul like to see more hcinesese cites as the Chinese market is growing the fastest and China recently annoucned they are building another 45 more airport! Of course I don't expect you to add every city or like 45 cities but can you guys add more cities though ( at least a few more) . China also st to have the largest avation market. I also hope to see Beijing and China as "bigger and more important " ity in the game as many airliners are now flying into China to tap into our lucrative market

How old are you? When I first flew for Air france it was the A300's and then i dedeiced to change to the A320's for 1 years (1991-2006) before I though I wanted to fly long haul and explore the world - I got sick of Europe) I recnetly started flying to 77W and in fact I flew it earlier today from Paris to Singapore and I am flying it back in a few days -- gotta love the tropics

  182. Could you possibly soon add the option for inflight enertainmend and complimentary headphones also please please add new orleans, phoenix san antonio rejkavik (or however u spell it lol) and lots more cities in china. And cities in asian russia

  183. haha i think Euoprean cities are enough unless you want to add teh smaller cities - secondary cities for airlines like Venice, Burchest .., new castle.

    I think this game however is lacking more of the Asian cities ( esspecailly Chinese cities as others have pointed out) Sri LAnka as mentioned earlier is a good city. For Euopean cities I think there really is enough unless were adding the "smaller city". sBut it is missing cites like Munich, Hamburg,
    Please add Abu Dhbai and Amman to
    I also like GAndrew's idea ( didn't mean to bring it up but it would help gain so much more profit cuz sometimes the demand is like "ugggggghhhhhhhh it's 1400 per week with 4 flights weekly -- should i use the A330-200 and carry 200 less passengers or should I use an A340-600 and have like 200 seats empty per week)

    Passenger loads should be at least tripled so it's more relaistic and competiotrs won't kill you if they compete with you for the orute

  184. I don't think that Adding cities and new countries should be
    Limited in any area therefore, The Southern European destinations suggested above would be good additions Skopje, Bucharest, Sofia etc. Although it may be hard to accomodate all requests but the more countries and cities added it makes the game more interesting and appealing to everyone so bring on some new countries.

  185. Well no thats quit biased of you there are many european cites already the addinal cities are more of a secondary city aprt from Munich. China needs more cities as there is a serious shortage of chinese cities ( major cites with fast growing economy) -- They have the fastest grwoing avaition market. Also, there should be Abu Dhabi ( Etihad's huB)

    ReplyDelete
  186. Well no, cuz if your thoery comes to play then there should be less US cities and there should be more of those chiense cities then US cities since they are loosing market share. Also, isn't Bejing and Shanghai the 2 main cites of China?

    ReplyDelete
  187. thats a fast reply but seriously I am not chinese and even I know that there are much more chinese cites that are "major" than what you just said. Also people are mor elikley to know "China" then "Croatia" etc. No offense to Coratians

  188. We won't reply as anonymous guys so if it sounds like someone is replying as us they ain't.

    Ok guys as I have said before more cities will be added in the future. We can not please everyone so if your city is not added to the game when we add more cities please understand that we have added cities that we believe are most important. We are listening though and we might add some of the cities listed.

    Also guys can you please not argue between one another. We are here to answer comments and your arguments just get in the way of those that truly néed help.

    Thanks Jack(Blog Admin)

  189. Oliver Cooksey,

    You mention that you click Red circle on the game file but where is this located. I am constantly having issues when I need to go onto the next quarter and it freezes and takes a while to click over and some cases it crashes.

  191. Can we get some more real aircraft logos possibly virgin, british airways, v australia etc.?

    ReplyDelete
  192. I love this game, from reading previous post i understand that you should be able to buy out a company when your value reaches double their's, should that be in the m&a tab? Because i have a value @35,000,000 with 9,000,000 in cash and previosly bought out a different company but now there is a cpmpany with a value of only 15,000,000 and 2,000,000 in cash and i cannpt figure out hpw to buy them out, (glitch?).

    Thanks for the great game.

  194. Adress me as Jamie please

    Anyway I see next update comming next week is going to have events? But what do you mean by events?

    ReplyDelete
  195. Thanks for your comment Jamie, Events will effect lots of things. In Basic an event is something like. "There was a big storm in Singapore that has grounded your flights on all routes to the city" for example. This would mean for a Day or so you would not get any money on that route. Other events could be things from Air Crashes, Engine Failures, Storms and lots more. I dont currently know what the Events will be but they will be similar to the example i just gave you.

    Hope this helps. Jack(Blog Admin)

    could you add a map where you can only see the routes from one hub it would make it easier to open routes also i think it would make the game faster

    thanks for the great game Jake

  197. A suggestion I have is when you purchase a company to have the ability to either merge them into your existing airline or to liquidate them. Reason is for example in my current game- I want to eliminate a competitor, but I don't want to deal with changing same routes bck to the plane/frequency/service level I had pre merger. If I could just liquidate then I wouldn't have to spend time- and it can take a while when you have 150+ routes. everytime I merge and theres the same route invariably what I had geta changed to what they had-

    or at least make it so in a merger any routes which both fly, my airlines settings remain and leaves the plane the airline I just acquired as un assigned a ruote.

    -Chris
