(The following is the "back of the box" game play description)
OK You just
had to cancel your companys flight from Houston to Los Angeles because
the 757 that is scheduled to fly it is stuck in snow in DETROIT.
Thankfully your spare 757 just finished its regular overhaul
and is now available at your maintenance facility but thats in INDIANAPOLIS. The only available equipment in Houston is a 737 that you can steal
from a flight going to Buffalo but that will only hold half the
passengers for L.A. And what
about the passengers for Buffalo? Maybe
that same storm will close Buffalo as well and it wont matter.
cant spend too long thinking about that somehow you managed to
schedule 14 flights to arrive in Atlanta in the next 45 minutes and
youve only got 12 gates and one of those has a delayed 757 for
Detroit that isnt going to be leaving anytime soon because of that
blizzard. Too bad that
planes not in Houston where you could really use it.
Oh yeah then
theres the fact that your two biggest competitors slashed their fares again
in and out of Seattle and now you cant seem to get your flights there
more than half full. Do you
cut your fares for a fifth time and risk losing money on the routes
or is it time to just start cutting down your service to Seattle?
Of course, what will your regional codeshare partner in the Pacific
Northwest have to say about that? And
then you will have to figure out how to use those planes somewhere else
you could sell off a couple of older DC-9s but the leases on those 2 new
717s are just too hefty to have the planes sitting around for long.
Well, maybe its not too late to add some more seasonal flights
slow day at the office. Well
at least for now it is!
