How do you guys use route numbers in the game? I use numbers 001-099 for intercontinental routes and 100-299 for routes from Copenhagen and so on. But the problem is, I now have 99 intercontinental routes and have run out of numbers. Where do I continue? Numbers 100 and up are taken, what is free is around 1500 and up. Any suggestions?

Hi Matias,

Can't really suggest anything much as I usually go with the automatically generated flight numbers. My airlines have so many routes that the pleasure of allocating a flight number to my routes is outweighed by the time it would take me to do this.

Some players use a letter such as flight # B79 etc... but this does not seem realistic to me - however it could be a possibility?

Potentially you could also re-work your numbering system altogether by removing flight numbers dedicated to intercontinental routes, and allocating each of your bases a range of numbers (flights from Copenhagen 0-150) flights from Riga (150-250) etc... ?

I made a spreadsheet the first time I used flight numbers, all with routes and numbers and hubs and ... Way too much work.

Now you can fill out a route number and by removing focus from the text box it'll tell you if it's available or not. That way it's easy to count upwards in the number blocks.

I think re-allocating IC routes to a 9000 block is my option, just like SAS in real life uses 900 numbers for IC routes.
