Why are there so few Boeing 727 aircraft in-game? As of July 2013, a total of 109 Boeing 727s (5× 727-100s and 104× -200s) were in commercial service with 34 airlines ["2013 World Airliner Census", p. 49.] (not including private aircraft and retired transports, which would be available for purchase in real life. Since the quantity of airlines and aircraft in Airlinesim is significantly greater than in real life, one would think that the 727 populations would also have grown to reflect real life used aircraft. For example, in Ellinikon, there are 9 727-100s which seems spot on proportional to real life, but only 98 727-200s (all types). Meanwhile, however, the Dash-8 has 1540 produced, as compared to 1215 ordered total in real life http://www.bombardier.com/content/dam/Websites/bombardiercom/supporting-documents/BA/Bombardier-Aerospace-20150930-Q-Series-Program-Status-en.pdf. This is disproportional, and has the potential to crush smaller airlines with the unrealistic costs of buying or leasing brand new aircraft, and removes a tough old airplane from the ranks. Any thoughts on how to fix this, or am I the only one bothered by this?
Additionally, people don't care that much about what they climb into, if it is a jet, and offers a comfortable ride, which the 727 is and does (if a bit loud towards the back), unlike the dash-8.
