Please get over it. This is what happens. It is usual and frankly put, what should happen. Either you kick him out or he kick you out. So, please stop complaining.

Not trying to kick you out of Appleton,WI.
Appleton is the center of nowhere, located directly on the corner of nowhere and nothing.

You know WHY you got this treatment.

Just let me have Appleton. I'll move after I make over 2mil. I'm trying to save up enough so I can make a base out of Montreal. I'd never make a base in KC. Do you want a KC gate?

No, I have like 70, with a 100% utilization now,

Montreal is a BAD,BAD,BAD choice......

You have 4 much larger airlines already fighting over it.  That would probably be infinitely bad for you.  Blue Planet alone is nasty enough to finish you off. Now combine BPA, with others including myself and you won't make money there.

Like I told you,  You already know what you have to do to make your problem go away.

its a dog eat dog world.....


 :shock: *has a flashback* :shock:

....Ahh yes I remember the first time I tried flying to Thessaloniki.....

I believe this was the only time where my airline didnt even have like any percentage on the pie chart lmao. And my airline was listed as "other" on the pie chart. My passenger load factor was somewhere around 4% and it was losing me like 500 euros per hour in real life rofl  :lol: :shock:


well sure glad those days r over now :D

Remember this for the next round folks...

Starting up in the big cities is gonna be a killer. Go for the ones no-one else wants, fly a few good routes to the big cities, with limited competition, build up the fleet, then move into the big ones.

I've looked at some European routes out of my LGW base, and its like 12euros a ticket, and still they are fighting over it.

The airline world isnt fair, find your niche, and you'll do ok though

Yeah, I thought of this when starting to play AM. But unfortunately Hannover is becoming a battleground as well as bigger cities.
