Re: Airline Manager Application on FB

Just added two new Boeing 777-200's with extra fuel tanks to my Mexico City base, flying to Paris, France and Rome, Italy. My total is now up to 276 routes and aircraft.

Check the forums in the game, where you'll find what I call the "Holy Bible of Airline Manager". This is what I'm talking about, credit goes to Pangloss Airlines for making this guide.
Quick guideline on how to grow quickly in Airline Manager. Credit to countless number crunching players players (BFA, Mile High, Silkpup, Luzon Pacific) for the best choices.

1.Sell your Boeing 737-800 when sale price is over 80% and buy a few Dassault Mecures aka DMs (under Dassault Aviation in hangar).
2.Buy at least 200 DMs. Use the best advertising possible. Cater after 30-40 in your fleet (Sky+). Put on max range
3.After 200 DMs get the seat configurator and start to buy at least 200 DC-10-10s or Boeing 757-300s. Configure all to business class. Put on max range, advertise and cater.
4.After reaching 200 DC-10s start to buy IL-96-400s. Yes buy at least 200. Slowly sell off DMs if buying more than 200 IL-96s. Put on Max range, advertise and cater.
5.Start to sell off your DMs and start to buy either KR-860s or A380-900s. Put on either 12 hr route or max range for A380-900. 12 hour routes increase chance of more pax points. Keep buying so until you have 600.
6.Your choice: Go for 100 extra pax routes or cargo achievement.
7.Cargo: Only buy the AN225 and A380F. Put on 400km or less routes. Launch every 30 min (if possible).
The link to the post is here: https://apps.facebook.com/airline_ma...?topicid=34421
One more thing, people on the board will tell you to not choose a hub. If you did, more power to you, if you didn't, that's great. But in the end, everyone will tell you, it's your airline, do what you want with it.

Re: Airline Manager Application on FB

Just in case anyone still plays this game, OGA has just opened up another new hub. This time at Amsterdam, home to four 737-500's and four MD-11's. I am currently up at 302 routes, and my stock is worth $182.22.

Re: Airline Manager Application on FB

Just expanded my Amsterdam hub by opening four new routes operated by Fokker 50's. I am however in a bit of financial trouble, but i hope to recover soon. All i need is 1300 pax points more.

What this game really needs is a dedicated IOS app.

Re: Airline Manager Application on FB

Re: Airline Manager Application on FB

I have been playing, while I feel the economic model is oversimplified, I seem to be doing fine with 460 aircraft.
1 - 738
8 - An-24RV
6 - MA60
50 - Yak-42
150 - EMB 190-200
80 - MD-83
120 - 757-300
40 - 777-200 (going to get 10 more soon)
5 - 747-400C



It does seem to suffer though from some hardcore elitism on the forums though. Not playing the FAQ's easy mode strategy? Forget about it, some of the regulars (which seem to be on the computer version 24/7, and I imagine them as highly miserable people who can't even remotely function in society) will bash folks. Honestly, can't blame anyone for not wanting to post there! I think they need to get the copper pipe out their rear ends and realize that not every acceptable model has to result in a SV of $1000 in a month or involve buying 200 DM, 200 DC-10-10, and 200 IL-96-400 with upgrading them all to A389s at the end and having An-225 flying 30 minute flights!

Of course, with how messed up the economic model is, flying anything with less than 100 seats is playing the game on "Very hard" mode. Hopefully later versions fix this somehow.

Hey, model plane manufactures, how about some Braniff PZL 230Fs.

Agreed. It's interesting to note that some of those "elitists" (which I do hate that kind of attitude), say that "ultimately, it's your airline, you do what you want with it", but if you don't follow the model you described, God help you on the forums. I never did the strategy guide, and just did everything almost at close to reasonably accurate airline operations as I could.
