PostSubject: Application from Fly By Air   Fri Dec 25, 2009 10:41 am

Hello
I had absolutely no idea this alliance existed until last night (pardon my ignorance). I've been looking for some airlines to co-operate with for a while now, but I really don't like the kiddy stuff that's around most of the forums on AS. A little background on myself first though. My name is Richard and I've been playing AS since the 1st version. I also played Airlines Empires during the hiatus with BarbulaM1. I helped found an alliance name Golden Wings Alliance in AE (my airline was Banana Airways). I ran the forums and tried to keep the peace. Well, people left AE 3 years ago and we dissolved from a lack of participation. I then started on Kaitaik. My airline, EOY, is #10 on that server, which is nice because I only had 12 A/C after 9 months. I grew on that server and worked really close with EuroSkyExpress, but his original owner became bored with AS and handed it to a new player about 2 months ago. That combined with leftovers from the C/F bug have made the server not too much fun in recent months. I play on Nicosia, but due to a huge error on my part, Fly By Air went bankrupt 2 weeks in, and when restarting I was just always 3 steps behind. I also operate Fly By Air South American on that server. I don't actively play Nicosia as I'm way to busy with Croydon these days though.

Fly By Air (in croydon)is rapidly climbing the charts from 18th in pax transported last week, to 10th this week. I do run 2 other holdings, Dewey Cheatum and Howe, which is my broker account, and Columbia Jet in Bogota to give South America a respectable IL partner (that sadly I can't use Crying or Very sad ).

I'm currently helping BarbulaM1 place some idle A/C during the holidays (he said he'd be back prob by the 5th), although I'm sure he stops by now and then. I originally suggested a 3 way alliance in the US between American International, Liberty, and Fly By Air. But since I was directed this way, and it's just easier and probably more beneficial to apply for this alliance Wink .

I currently operate 100+ A/C. All of my A/C are either 737's, A320's, or CRJ's. I don't operate russian metal and I do plan on operating as few types as possible. Although next week I will be adding A332's to add flights to LHR from DEN. I'm currently in DEN and have been slowly expanding MCO in the last few days. My margin is 68-70% depending on weekly costs and revenue was 118 mil last week.

If there is any further questions I'd be more than willing to answer them.

Cheers!
Richard

Wow, impressive introduction.

How well covered is the West Coast in your network?

Funny thing is that's been my main area of focus with the 73G's for a couple days now. I offer
LAX 9x
PHX 9x
SFO 7x
SEA 6x
LAS 6x
PDX 6x
OAK 5x
SAN 5x
SJC 5x
ONT 3x
SNA 3x
YVR 3x
BUR 2x


I plan on bringing those frequencies up (on LAX for example most flights are full from feeder flights, can't get enough metal in there), just been busy trying to give most major east coast stations min 3 daily flights to make good connections.
I do also plan on moving into SFO, but DEN serves as a great midpoint on most flights headed to the west coast.

Cheers!

BTW a quick update. I've put an additional 4 737's on west coast duty to help fill frequencies. Also new stats are out and FBA was #6 last week in pax on Croydon, #5 in the US.

Well my airline had a decent week in Nicosia (profit versus a loss), and I felt I'd at least give the market a try. I've never done a large stock offering (FBASAA had a $20 mil networth when I tried it). Not to mention I've been home for break with the family and have been absolutely bored out of my mind. So bored I spent 3 hours last night reading and learning the process of hyrdofracking and learning about the Sacramento Watershed area. FBA in Nicosia is at the bottom of my priority list atm, but with so much time I can devote some time to some minor upkeep at least. I gotta work later this week in Boston so I'll have less time and will most likely have my hands full just running Fly By Air and American International for BarbulaM1 on Croydon. When school starts one server is my limit, hell if ColumbiaJet wasn't the only real airline down in that part of South America I'd probably close it to conserve credits. Obviously I've got a few observers Wink

Cheers!

Ok, I'm going to put the apps received up over the last couple of days up to votes - should be done within what, 24 hours? Sorry to be brusque and boilerplate but it's 7:15am and I've been up for about 24 hours so I'm running on fumes right now.

24 hours eh? Razz I know what that is like getting everyone on. BTW if someone sees BarbulaM1 tell him is account is out of credits. I'd add more but I've run my credit cards ragged this Xmas No . As an FYI, I didn't do much this week due to a hectic week that saw me going to a funeral of a close friend and working 10+ hour days for that darn Winter Classic. I've been averaging 6 hours of sleep the last few days, so I just caught up today. I'm still able to answer any questions you may have.

Cheers!

Wow,

we'll tell him. And sorry for your friend.

Right now everything is a mess around me, but I'll try to keep up the work with Infinity, so when Barbula shows up, we will set up the voting about your application and the others'.

Best regards

Yeah, sorry - I had a hard drive failure and then a monitor failure literally hours apart on new year's eve so I have been out of the loop for a little while. Once I've caught up with everything elsewhere I'll get those things sorted that haven't been yet.

No problem. I knew Liberty seemed a tad dormant Wink
