Personally I'm also not so happy about the removal of the replace button. I like to manage my fleet to the point that I have a continous flow of replacements and not like 20 planes at the same time. For that purpose manual replacement was useful. How about adding the replace button only to planes that you have owned for a certain time - for example for more than twice the delivery time?

Would this proposed change https://airlineclub.createaforum.com/under-development-wish-list-suggestions/proposing-new-option-to-schedule-replacement-on-individual-airplane/ address it?

No, it would not.

I actually agree with neez here, I'm also not happy about the removal of the replace button. I agree it could be used as a loophole, but so what? Better have a loophole than a dysfunctional game.

With the amount of aircraft I got right now manually replacing them is not an option and I also don't like the auto replace option. I always used that button so I could keep control over which aircraft to replace and which not. Some aircraft get replaced earlier than others.

Without that button I just let my planes age to infinity until it is back. As a matter of fact, ever since that button is gone I've hardly logged in anymore. If that button needs anything it's improvement, not removal.

How about as you press that button the delivery time will start ticking. The aircraft status will then say "scheduled for replacement, X weeks remaining". And then when the new aircraft gets delivered it's automatically being replaced.

I think this should have top priority in order to make the game playable again. As it is now, it is not.

The thread you linked was proposing exactly what u r suggesting (the " Renew in Y week " option) - schedule it for replacement. However while i was implementing it, it does add quite a bit of complexity so at the end i just bring the button back with a purchase cycle check to avoid the instantenous new airplane loophole when purchasing airplane off the 2nd hand market : https://github.com/patsonluk/airline/pull/212
