A question for some of the more seasoned players on here... How has your strategy changed from when you started the game to now? What was your strategy when you started? What is it now? With what you know now, what would you do differently in the early days of playing AM?

As a piece of fresh meat where this game is concerned I'd like to read some of these stories.

Personally already I have changed strategy 4 times. Went from short hops to medium/long then back to small as I didn't want to take any loans, then became a billionaire for a few minutes when I did take the loans, went from 1 to 3 stars then back to 1 just over a week later and now I'm trying a little bit of everything! I average 20 million a day, which is poor. Oh, it should be said I only play this on the mobile. PC is for Flight Simming.

So it would be good to see how others set out to make their millions/billions.

I was hoping that some of those that have been doing this longer might jump on and offer some advice on what they know now and what they would have done different.

While I certainly haven't been playing this game for a long period of time, I can say a few things I would do differently.

Firstly, I would start a spreadsheet early, and use it to track how profitable each route and plane is. I would also have started trying to figure out the "formula" of the game much earlier. Being able to work out which plane is the best for your route choice etc makes life much better and your airline will benefit.

Secondly, think of a strategy and stick to it. There are so many different ways to make money in the game, but the quickest way to lose it is by having to sell planes and routes due to a strategy change. Build your research to help this strategy. Obviously once you get a bit bigger, it gives you more flexibility to change strategies, but don't rush into it.

Everyone who you talk to in this game will give you different advice. And everyone has a different strategy. But ultimately you need to decide what you want to do in the game, and come up with a strategy to achieve that.

Thanks MossieNZ for sharing some of what you have learned. What is your strategy for Vortex Air? Looks like you are primarily a long-haul airline. This seems to be the most popular strategy on AM2.

My current strategy is Long Haul Economy. But I am also doing a significant amount of behind the scenes calculation to try and figure out the best strategy so this may change in the future.
