Textbooks -- -Please Quote if anything (Detail) is missing Thanks I Suppose I was of HELP _____FOR WORLD - B
  4. 11) Being able to provide Facilities on Airport to Passengers would be Nice - Like Priority Check in , Queue Skip and Faster Security Checks (Obviously costing the Airline Money) -- I know about In-Flight Service but just about some airlines do that 12) Forming More Elaborate Joint Ventures like Air Vistara (In real world) where Companies Merge and Operate as one Airline thus giving a Partnership in resources, Planes and Gates(Already in alliance) etc 13) Including a Competitive Index in each Air Way where Prefribility of Customers and Facilities Comparision can be viewed
  5. What I meant was that we get to see the Time untill next day It is said 20 mins in game but the day usually doesn't change for atleast 5 to 6 hours and Sometimes it changes a month in 24 hours so it is quite a problem :)
  6. 1) Time along with Date 2) A mechanism to have the Airplanes delivered faster 3) Countries Flags 4) More Information about planes ( Live tracking , Condition to fly etc) 5) Introduction of ATCs and Fog along with Winter Seasons - Delayed flights and Passenger accomodations 6) Introduction of Insurances against Lost Baggage etc. 7) Introduction of Fuel Costs and Fuel Effiency of the Planes in Market Planes 8)Introduction of Connecting Flights like Airport A to B to C with B as Connecting Stopover 9) Allowance of Companies to lease out their Owned gates - Like a Company Owns Terminal in XYZ airport with 100 Gates so they should have an Option to Lease out gates onto the Market 10) Early Payment of Loan amount
  7. 1) A way to get Faster Delivery of aircrafts 2) A way to manage Salaries of Employees ---- More to follow
  8. This game is a bit complicated --- Discussion about Staff Training and Salary Control : --- Discussion about Profit and Loss : --- Discussion about Airplanes and their Fuel as well as IFS Scenario --- Any other random Discussion related to Mechanics of the Game
