We are some players who enjoy taking an airline and grow it slowly to create a sense of natural progression and history.

The point of this post is to promote this world - it is always more fun with more people playing! The world will be as follows:
Created on last Saturday, 8th of May in European evening.
Runs from 1968 until today
Full world
DC-9-11 starting aircraft, will be changed as time progresses
20 bases
Frequent pruning of bankrupt and inactive airlines to reduce congestion
New flight block calculation for realistic flight times
New maintenance formula
Order books feature as the only world right now
Improved lease mechanichs - introducing Lease-to-Own!
No password

I'll be happy to welcome you in world 3551!

From Atlanta the A319 is quite adequate for all the tiny airports. Maybe even the A320.

Some of us players like to base in smaller airports :)

Ok, I am confused by your answer. It seems as if you are saying some players have hubs(bases) that are 15m?  I don't know who would have a hub that is 15m. All hubs(bases) I have seen are between 100m to 40m. And the routes are all flown FROM these very large hubs.  I fly to airports that have as few as 50,000 passengers, within the limits of the aircraft I use for that hub(base). So, let's say I am using Hartfield(Atlanta) as my hub. And I use a Boeing 757 for airports from 100m to 35m, A320-200 for airports from 35m to 10m, and Fokker 4000 for airports from 10m to 50,000.

Thanks for the information, and if you can expand your tips on the extra information I have just given, that would be even more appreciated!

Thanks and Happy Flying, Captain!!   :) :) :)

This world is nearing the end. Thank you, everyone, for making it such an enjoyable world!

New features are in the pipeline for AM, I expect them to be ready in a few weeks - just in time for a reboot of this world! These features will make aircraft leases much more attractive, among other things.

I look forward to join you in the next instance of this world! Expected creation is the beginning of May.

So... Late reply, I know, but:
I try to keep the ticket price between 200 and 300, which means A320-sized aircraft are most useful (B737-800, MD80, Tu-204). As an example, a route from a 30m airport to a 1m airport would definitely be an A320, while a route from a 15m airport to a 1m airport would probably be a 100-seater instead (E190, CRJ-1000, Fokker 70). Smaller airports would typically be served by 40-70 seater turboprops on my airlines.

Not sure if there is a topic about this yet, but what planes do you use for smaller airports, than larger ones? If you can be a little more detailed than saying that you use props to jets, lol. And what would you consider a smaller airport as... 20M, 5M, 100k?  I'm pretty sure any airport above 30M will be ok using a plane with 130 seats or more, and get good profit. I know miles also have to do with the profit of a route, as even with a higher airport population, a short route will be considerably less profit than a longer route of same size airport. What I want to know is, has anyone figured out the formula or ratio of when it's best to use smaller/larger seat planes with smaller/larger population airports.  Thanks for your help, and happy flying everyone!!!!   :) :)

I'm sure 2030 will be here sooner than we think

This is the age old question of how far out an airport is to no longer be considered within a metro area.

For example... "London Oxford Airport"...
