Great game but...
There are a lot of issues with accuracy... For example: the population of a city doesn't determine what types of planes can fly into it (Dubai has about 2 million people and they have the most a380s of any airport in the world flying through DXB. DXB also handles 52 million passengers a year- so where is the airport!)
Also, you are missing many cities with massive airports (Charlotte, Nashville, Dubai) and include cities that don't really have much of an airport. Also, a city with 3 million people is a HUGE city. It makes no sense why they should get almost as many jobs as a city with 100,000 would.
I do however love how generous you guys are with bux and how you can convert them to coins. I like the airplane names and how you can get little information things about each city. It's a really creative game but you need to update! Nimblebit doesn't do anything beyond a few minor bug fixes.
Good game but needs improvements
I have been playing this game for a while. I play it until I get bored to I won't touch it for days or even weeks. I get bored because I think there needs to be some improvements. Such as which lanes can fly into cities. How many they can carry. (Need planes that can carry 5-6 in the "small" airports. Also the passengers traveling between cities is very unbalanced. I get 0-3 people (in each refresh) going from say Chicago to New York. Really? Two of the larger cities and only 0-3 people. Or how about London to New York. Very often I get none. Most times 1-2. But it they are going to Bismark I get 3-4. I am amazed that only a 4 seater can fly into Honolulu. Also why can't I flying around the world in BOTH direction. I can't fly from Honolulu to Japan going west. I must travel east. Again I do like the game but as others have mentioned it needs updated. Maybe added feathers. I will continue my off and on playing but look forward to improvements. Thank you
Needs more updates.
As I am well aware, I am not the only person to say this, but you have great games with great ideas that are simply trashed after a certain period save for bug fixes. Many features, such as larger planes, more airports, a new class of planes and airports, and more events have been proposed, but the vast majority of them have been neglected. This game is a wonderful game but after a certain period of flying and building a fleet of class 3 planes, there is little more to do other than purchase the very expensive additional plane slots. Plane slots should not be the only thing that has an exponentially increasing price, and I am sure class 4 or even class 5 planes Will be wildly popular with those currently enjoying the game.
That said, this is still a great game, and I hope you will take what I, and many others, have suggested into serious consideration.
