Re: Airline Empires trouble

Pffff. Airline Empires sucks. Airline Mogul is so much better. Not to mention in Mogul, you can join an alliance and actually have a better chance at being profitable, where in Empires, just putting an ATR on a wrong route could cost you half of your revenue. And just like the real world, Mogul gives you a chance to make profit in other ways (like by charging for drinks and meals if you choose) and if you can't afford a larger plane right away, you can always find one to lease in Mogul.

More airports to fly to, more aircraft you could use, isn't filled to the brim with bugs and doesn't have a certain "Elite Alliance" that exploits bugs and covers it up with their high positions within the game's administrative pyramid and forum.

Trust me, it doesn't work very well. In AE, especially after year 4 it becomes alomst impossible for anyone outside the top 10 to actually profit. Those airlines become so huge that because of their size and ability to hub nearly everything they actually take a larger portion of pax because of the "hub effect" that has been programmed.

In AM, there is something similar to a hub effect, but because the map is so huge (last I checked, almost 3000 airports to fly to) and the fact they restrict airlines from getting too large in most cases by limiting them to one airport that is off their "continent", at least the top 200 would at least make some kind of profit. So if LHR doesn't work out for you (which it shouldn't unless you're lucky or mad skilled), look at a smaller airport on the European Continent. Even smaller ones with pax counts in the 150K-500K can make you a small profit. It just comes down to logically choosing an aircraft (like do I want to use a 747-100 on very small, low density regional routes like Rzeszow to L'vov?)

Can't you use your email? That is how it worked when I played it, you can put in your username or email address. After that, it's remembering your password (which I'm sure can be emailed to you if you forget.)

Re: Airline Empires trouble

oo okay

sounds weird but cool

so what about if you changed aircraft type does this help out......(aka instead of a 747 use a 767/777 instead) for low density as a 747 would waste **** loads of fuel costign you mega bucks to keep in the air

Well, in mogul, it's just not fuel burn, but also the maintenance costs. If you are only making 43K with the 747 on a route, it would be smart to pull it and put one something smaller, like a Tu-154 or a 757. A 777 would be WAY too large as it's numbers are too close to the 747's, so it too could result in ruins unless you're operating from the LHRs and CDGs of the world. The fuel burn shouldn't be an issue if it keeps you in the green, it's the maintenance. There is also staffing costs as well for the aircraft.

Of course, they are always playing with the script, so some things may have changed.

Sadly, it's 1971 and I don't even have a 737 to start with. That is my plane of choice, sadly everytime I order one I have to declare bankrupcy every 2 weeks, and so far, none had ever came.

Re: Airline Empires trouble

Play Mogul, it is heaps better than AE. I used to play AE and now avoid it like the plague. Too many bugs and too many players cheating.
