How to bankrupt a small airline fast
« on: May 20, 2020, 07:55:38 pm »
I love this game so far, but I got off to a rocky start.  For my starting company I chose the middle option "a modest start" or something like that.  I hoped that having a small fleet and some reputation would let me get off to a faster start.  I put my HQ in Salt Lake City (SLC) and opened routs with no direct competition.  I quickly used up all my slots at SLC, but I still had many idle planes.  I thought, "I need to grow quickly with so many planes to maintain and a debt load to carry.  There must be a way to use all these planes."  So I looked for a way to increase my slots at SLC and saw the "upgrade base" button.  Now a more prudent CEO would have checked the price, but I let enthusiasm get the better of me.  The next thing I knew, all my cash was gone, my expenses were even higher, and I still only had 20 slots.  :(  So I did what any good airline does when it gets in trouble; I declared bankruptcy.  My apologies to the original investors in Sky Chariot,  :P but your sacrifice was not in vain because the new Sky Chariot got a nice reputation bonus.  Maybe the middle starting option should give a loyalty bonus at your HQ and start with a smaller fleet so that new players don't feel so much pressure to rush their planes into service.  By the way, I'm doing fine now despite a few small missteps, so my new shareholders can rest easy.
