Clearly Doing Something Wrong

Hi --

I started up my airline, bought a plane and added a route.  I even started making money (or so I thought).  All of a sudden, I am getting hit regularly with massive airport fees of more than a million.  Where is this fee coming from and how do I avoid it?  I'm so far in the hole, I'll never get out.  So, what did I do to incur this fee and how do I delete the airline and start over?  Thanks.

Same thing happened to me when I started playing.   If you keep a plane at a gate for more than 60 minutes, the fees are HUGE.   Either change your schedule or lease the gate.  Once you have enough money, you can buy a terminal and that helps too.   Good luck.    Gary

I dont know about deleting an airline.  I ended up over a billion dollars in the hole before I figured out why.  It took me a while but I got myself out of the hole by changing the schedules of my 5 planes.  Once I was out of the hole, I was able to start leasing and purchasing new planes to grow my airline.  I am now the 12th biggest airline in the game!!!   GGAir - #12.

Thanks again.  So I guess the basic strategy is to keep all planes flying 100 percent of the time.  Aside from the fact that it's more efficient to keep 'em flying, one can avoid the big penalties.  Is there anywhere to park a plane that doesn't incur the penalties?

If you lease your own gate then you pay a per-month rate to use a gate (and therefore dont incur gate slot fees). Basically the slot system is designed for people to fly in, turn-around and fly out and the penalties are big on purpose to discourage people from hogging up gates (since they are not used exclusively by a single airline). To lease a gate either click "Lease Gate" in the top right in the airport page or on the flight research page under the airport to see the airports lease market which will give you your own gate for you to use as you wish.

This a common issue and in the next version I have made it so that a gate is leased automatically if a turnaround is longer than 60 minutes (and a gate is available)
