Hi all! I haven been working to improve the passenger simulation with some adjustments and bug fixes and here is the summary of changes:

- Easier to attract business and first class passengers as their quality expectation is lowered
- Passengers are slightly less willing to downgrade (for example from business to economy class)
- Passengers are less willing to switch airlines for transits
- High flight frequency (> 14 per week) will be more attractive to passenger with preference "Swift"
- Business and First class passengers are less sensitive to price changes
- Code optimization to avoid some redundant calculations
- Business and First class passenger favors direct flights more

Running some tests locally before releasing it probably tomorrow (Aug 5)  :D

- Passengers are less willing to switch airlines for transits
Where's the emphasis here? On "switch airlines", i.e. PAX stick to your airline more, once they've decided to start their journey with you. Or on "transits", is there generally (also for economy!) less willingness for transits?

I have reverted that change as it removes more transit pax than expected :)

3 stars quality expectation for business and 3 and a half for first is too low now. Please revert this change too ;D
It kinda makes SQ over 65 worthless.

o the expectation is just what the pax will consider sufficient, if u go beyond the expectation u can charge more without losing pax, and pax will pick ur airline over others that merely deem "sufficient" :)

This change just make business/first class pax more likely to "accept" a route if there are no alternatives. If there are alternative the same quality comparison logic still applies
