Bugs / Loss of revenues on the B-747 ?
« on: October 23, 2018, 10:28:25 AM »
Good day,

PW3360

Sorry in advance as this one might be a bit complicated. However I just came across a situation where my route revenue for B747 has dropped significantly when I am swapping aircraft.

Basically, I am operating two B747-200 out of Rome, flying to Chicago, JFK, Incheon and Beijing. I have just swapped two old aircraft for newly purchased aircrafts. The variants/engines are the same. It's an exact aircraft-for-aircraft switch, on the exact same routes I was flying before. However as you will see from the screenshots below, the revenue per route has dropped significantly, for no reason that I can understand (other airline competition is not a factor here, as two of the routes have NO competition).

Aircraft #1 PREVIOUS to the swap:



Aircraft #1 AFTER the swap:



Aircraft #2 PREVIOUS to the swap:



Aircraft #2 AFTER the swap:



For example in aircraft #1, the route Rome to Beijing used to have a ticket price of 515 € and a revenue of 112,039 €, but once I changed it the ticket price is higher (517€) for a much lower revenue (77,395€)

Do you know why this is? Operating 747's is already challenging in Airline Mogul, but with these lower revenues it becomes increasingly difficult.

Note: when I swap Lockheed Tristars the revenues remain (roughly) the same, so this issue seems to affect only my 747's.

Thanks in advance.

Game Data / Northwest Florida Beaches Intl X 2
« on: October 09, 2018, 09:03:57 AM »
Good day,

Just to let you know it appears that Northwest Florida Beaches Intl airport in Panama City (FL) seems to be included twice in the game, 6 NM apart.

See screenshot. This is perhaps an error?

Best regards.

Game Data / Oslo Rygge Airport has closed
« on: July 11, 2018, 05:11:30 PM »
Greetings,

Just spotted this one : Oslo Rygge (RYG/ENRY) airport has closed to all civilian traffic since 2016.

https://web.archive.org/web/20160831085451/http://www.en.ryg.no/post/4872415/

The airport is in the game, so I don't know if you want to remove it now?

Best regards.

General Chat / Airlines against fascism
« on: June 22, 2018, 12:23:35 PM »
Yesterday and today, several American airlines have stated that they would refuse to knowingly transport immigrant children separated from their families, on behalf of the U.S. government.

United Airlines released the following statement, echoed by several other carriers:

"Based on our serious concerns about this policy and how it's in deep conflict with our company's values, we have contacted federal officials to inform them that they should not transport immigrant children on United aircraft who have been separated from their parents. This policy and its impact on children is in deep conflict with that mission and we want no part of it."

Frontier Airlines stated:

"Frontier prides itself on being a family airline and we will not knowingly allow our flights to be used to transport migrant children away from their families".

I hereby would like to personally thank the following airlines for refusing to be part of such a terrible and cruel policy: SOUTHWEST AIRLINES, FRONTIER AIRLINES, UNITED AIRLINES, AMERICAN AIRLINES, ALASKA AIRLINES and SPIRIT AIRLINES.

As an American citizen, I am deeply troubled by the direction taken by the United States government at the present time, and I fear this is just the beginning of a path headed towards fascism, and hate. Everyone should be aware, everyone should care. Love will prevail in the end, but after what perils, trials and tribulations? So thanks to all airlines, companies, and individuals that will resist and refuse to be part of such dangerous policies.

OK apologies for my tirade, let's get back to playing Airline Mogul!

Suggestions / Average fleet age
« on: June 14, 2018, 04:00:58 PM »
Hello,

I have a suggestion that should be relatively easy to implement: that an airline's average fleet age be rendered visible to other players within a world.

I think it should be feasible technically because this figure/calculation already exists in the game. When one clicks on the "Aircraft" tab, one can see his own fleet's average age.
But currently we cannot see other airline's average fleet age.

The reason I think it would be nice to see this figure is because it could motivate players to regularly renew their fleets, and therefore to keep playing actively in the game.

I can understand that an airline's current cash amounts remain private, because in the real world too airlines do not tend to release this information. However in the real world, it is quite easy to find out an airline's average fleet age.

Anyway, its just an idea...

All the best,

Game Strategy / delay for airline inactivity
« on: June 13, 2018, 04:13:23 PM »
Hello,

I was wondering if someone could just confirm to me the amount of time before an airline becomes inactive?

From my previous understanding and from a couple of forum posts I came across it went as follows:

* Last login time + 21 days = inactive
* Enable holiday mode = adds two extra weeks before an airline becomes inactive.

However in my world, a player just became inactive after only 14 days not logging in.

Thanks, just would like to make sure I understand correctly...

General Chat / How are aircraft registration numbers attributed?
« on: May 13, 2018, 05:18:27 PM »
Hello,

This is just out of curiosity, and I'm not sure if anyone holds the answer. But how are aircraft registration numbers attributed?
I initially thought they would be in a progressive order, but in a new world I'm in, my first three default aircraft are registered in Italy, as follows:

I-AAAA
I-AAAB
I-AAAC

but I have purchased a new aircraft, and it has the registration number I-AADS which does not logically follow the previous 3 registration numbers. No other airlines are based in Italy at the moment.

Any ideas how it works?

Game Strategy / Map Selection
« on: April 29, 2018, 10:11:48 AM »
Hi there,

Quick question if anyone knows the reply, please?

When creating a new Private World, there is a map selection. Among the list, two maps are "FULL WORLD", these are maps #411 and #495 as per the below screenshot.

Is there a difference between these two maps, and if so what is it?

Thanks!

Game Data / SDA is now BGW
« on: March 29, 2018, 10:30:33 AM »
Hi AM team,

This one should be fairly easy to update, but the Baghdad Intl Airport's IATA code has changed from "SDA" to "BGW".

SDA was the code at the time the airport was called Saddam International Airport - but that is now history.

Thanks.

Hi,

In this world I'm playing, there are suddenly new user registrations at above 800,000 registration (ID) number.

See screenshot, circled in red:



Is this normal?

Game Data / Malaybalay Airport no longer exists.
« on: December 05, 2017, 09:05:03 AM »
Dear Airline Mogul Team,

Malaybalay Airport is available in the game, as an airstrip in the Philippines, with around 1.5 million passengers.

However this airport no longer exists. Here is the information I could find at a quick glance:

"Malaybalay Airport, also known as Malaybalay Airstrip, is the defunct-airport that used to serve general aviation in the area of Malaybalay, the capital city of Bukidnon in the Philippines. During the late 1990s, the airport was closed down and the area where the airport used to be located was converted into a low-cost housing project by the provincial government of Bukidnon."     [WIKIPEDIA]

"There is no commercial airport in the province of Bukidnon. The nearest airport is in Cagayan de Oro about 100km away. Cagayan de Oro has several airlines providing daily flights to Manila and Cebu. Malaybalay City used to have an airport, but it had to be closed because the surrounding mountains made the runway approach to treacherous for the pilots."  [WIKITRAVEL].

Perhaps therefore it would be best to remove it from Airline Mogul, so as to reflect reality?

Thanks.

Game Data / Vietnam - Revised passenger figures (2014)
« on: August 10, 2016, 10:54:26 AM »
Dear Airline Mogul Team,

Vietnam is an amazing country, and it has opened up only during the past few decades to international tourism.
As such, the vietnamese airports have a very high passenger growth rate. The figures currently in Airline Mogul for Vietnam are quite outdated.

I went on the official website of Airports Corporation of Vietnam (ACV), where they have listed passenger figures from 2014.
One must look at the bottom of each of the individual airport pages to find these figures.

For example, here are changes for 3 major Vietnamese airports:

* Tan Son Nhat : 22,153,000 Passengers (instead of 7 Million)
http://vietnamairport.vn/en/introduction/airports/tan-son-nhat-international-airport

* Hanoi Noi Bai: 14,190,000 Passengers (instead of 3.5 Million)
http://vietnamairport.vn/en/introduction/airports/noi-bai-international-airport

* Danang : 4,989,987 Passengers (instead of 605,000)
http://vietnamairport.vn/en/introduction/airports/da-nang-international-airport

All Vietnam airports are listed, not just the three above.

I was hoping you would be able to update the passenger figures for Vietnam, to better reflect the current passenger volume?

Thank you in advance,

Thunderstruck.
