I am at 19,810 right now. Going slower than I anticipated, and I am sure I will run out of coins around 35,000 and will have to run a profitable airline for a week or so to finish the task

That went out the window when I had to buy and upgrade class 1 P/C planes for the global events ... the disadvantage of having an M fleet and wanting to participate in the P/C events. I'm at 17,300.


Does anybody know how chatty PP is with their servers? I'm wondering if PP is part of the reason why I get close to hitting my monthly data quota. Or maybe it's several of the other games my daughter plays which require internet access.

Time to get serious about some Pocket Planes!

I'm at 15800 after an orgy of Bux during the SD event and a costly rebalancing of my fleet.
I made an astonishing 15k Bux since we launched TA1, spent 3k.

I'm trying a more streamlined setup.
I closed 6 of my 15 usual airports (Lima, Chicago, Kinsasha, Lagos, Mumbai, Tokyo)
I kept LA, NY, Rio, SaoPaulo, Paris, London, Istanbul, Shangai, Seoul.
Massive downsizing, many Bitizens on the dole!

I also have now 9 Sequoias M sitting in each airport dedicated only to Bux collecting.
The only layovers I take now are the Bux or event jobs.
Coins are totally irrelevant to me at this point.
So far bux collecting with plane sitting works well.
But I didn't notice a big jump of jobs available per airport going from 15 to 9.

Costumes?

Hey everyone,

I have a question for you. Do you put costumes on your pilots, and if so, on which planes and what costumes do you prefer?

Pocket Planes Daily News

Good evening, morning, and afternoon! I'm KitFisto22 here to report to you the events of this game.

In Tiksi, a Class 1 city is hosting a Medical Conference. A magnificent Air Show is taking place in Manchester. The newest Pocket Planes Short is being filmed in Belgrade. In Kananga, a rock n' roll Elvis Convention is getting under way. Luckily, the only weather problem I have to report is that Havana is currently closed due to fog. Land carefully and be mindful of birds.

Looking at the Global Event Leader board for Flight Crew TouchArcade1, with a random pick, today's featured airline manager is....
BACONFATS! With a ranking of 4th place and 322 jobs, BACONFATS is today's featured airline manager.

This has been the Pocket Planes Daily News. I'm KitFisto22 taking over for CastlePage. Remember, fly fast, and fly safely.

(Post subjected to changes within game.)

Thanks for the report.

Thanks Kit for the Daily News.

I don't bother with costumes.

I can see everyone in the Top 10 except for #6 ... Who am I missing?

Crew #3 is ~900 jobs behind TA1 ... Hope we can increase the gap.

Love the daily news, please keep it going!

Just started a new contract on Friday and spent most of Sunday in a lot of pain after I sliced my thumb on a broken glass bowl. You never realize how much you use the thumb on your dominant hand for balance and torque and such, until you can't! Between the two, I haven't had much time or inclination for sending planes. The prize is hardly worth the effort, so I may just sit the rest of this one...

Wait, I slid all the way down to #19?

Time to load up the Mohawks.
