Great Game but

First off I love Airline Manager I believe it is the first and only grey tycoon game currently on the App Store. I have some suggestions that I think will make the game ten time better if that’s even possible. My first suggestion is adding a way to have other subsidiaries and entity’s. Some examples of this would be having a main airline and than branched out to include regional and cargo services. For example Delta Airlines has three branches there main airline than Delta Airline private jets and Delta Connection. I think and believe adding a feature like this would better separate regional airports and planes from your international airports and aircraft. I know this would make the game that much better. The second feature I would recommend would be ground services. What I am talking is having a option to buy and or charter buses and taxis to better services your passengers. I have one more recommendation and that would be to add another airport for Illinois in the United States. Currently the Vermilion Regional Airport located in Danville, Illinois (DNV) is not included in the game and would l would love to have that airport to choice from for future route expansion.

Thank you for your time and I can’t wait for more updates in the future.

I love this game BUT

This is an amazing game. I love how realistic and customizable it is. Amazing. I love all the plane options and how you can change everything from the livery to the ticket prices. However, the constant change and increase of the route prices is absurd! I don’t care about your lame excuse of wanting to make the game more realistic. You make us pay more for a route so that we will eventually HAVE to spend actual money on buying more coins to actually be able to expand. Let’s face it, 90,000,000 to buy a route from SFO-LGA is ridiculous! You have to pay these insane prices for regional airports as well, and it is ridiculous. Please, I don’t care that you want to make it as realistic as possible. The route prices don’t increase at that rate in reality, managing a large airline becomes more difficult because of your fleet size, and maintenance needs and meeting growing/changing passenger demands. Please just keep the prices at a consistent, reasonable and affordable price to allow us to keep playing this amazing game. I love this game, but really, 100,000,000 for a regional airport with a category 4 runway? That’s just not at all right. No airline can consistently expand and maintain a price like that and you know it

Route costs

The exponential growth of route costs is unacceptable. How can buying a route through Hays, KS ever be $70,000,000? It makes getting past a certain part of expansion impossible because they force you to take out loans early and then once you start having to pay off those loans, then you’re being forced to spend $70 million on tiny regional airports and at least $90 million for bigger ones. So then you have to max out your loans just to buy one route, plus a short haul plane, which leasing at this point is about your only option. But then those loans have to start being paid and then you’re lucky to come out even because you can’t afford planes/route that would make enough to cover loan payments. I’ve restarted 4 times, becoming more thrifty each time to start, and I always arrive in the exact same situation because of route costs. Will definitely rate higher if/when this gets fixed because it’s a pretty deep game and could be a lot of fun.

Hello and thank you for comment! Airlines Manager tries to be as close as possible to reality and it is one of its strengths. The more profits you make and the higher your rank, the more difficult the game becomes as you are now at the helm of a big airline company and it is part of the game’s challenge to remain profitable in the long term. Have a nice day and a good game! Damien Playrion
