Making Money Before 1950? - Elliot123 - 02-05-2020

Not long since got the game and starting on 1960+ I find it very easy to find profitable routes and can run almost any plane making a profit provided its cargo or economy passenger. Can anybody give me advice on how to make profit before this era in cargo and passenger?
Thanks in advance.

Demand before 1959 is still WIP, so it's indeed tougher to make a profit in these years.
I found that you can make a profit if you fly to airports 1000km+ apart from each other, and manually increase the price a little.
This is of course not how the game will end up being.


On the other hand the costs are also WIP, so making profitable routes after 1959 will become tougher in the future.

 I have found that prior to 1960, it is best to try to only do passenger flights between places that are other than none in the "city trip" category. The rest appear to be very hard to get much load factor. That said... cargo is especially effective in that era...
