I have been playing airlinesim for roughly 2 years now but I have never managed to get a solid airline I am able to continue as, I have had some successes and got AAA rating but it would often quickly go downhill.
Am I simply missing something crucial to get bookings? As that is the main issue, I can calculate if a route will be profitable, make sure its profits cover the leasing and get suitable planes for the job etc, But when it gets to the end of the day I simply do not get enough bookings to become a viable airline, I do try and alter things but it eventually becomes a failure so I liquidate and scour for a new oppurtunity.
Currently I am playing Byzantine Airways in the Meigs world, and while I have been playing very shortly I was confident in gaining bookings as a major airline recently closed and left 50% slots in Istanbul as well as 10,000s less seats offered. I tried to capitalise but I know so far from the first update of bookings they will not be enough once the 3 day delay kicks in.
If anyone could kindly offer any critiques I would greatly thank as I love this game but bookings do not love me!
I typically use Leisure+ Seating and 95% price with service profiles making up roughly 10% of the price if that information helps.
P.S Maybe the issue is I need more connections to my hub via interlining, or simply I need to actually wait for my own connections to set up but whoops.
Many thanks, Benostew
