Next Global Event: Magic Convention in Iqaluit ... hey, that's even further than Goose Bay. Ah... a nice slow paced event, perfect while we stress out over the holidays.

Edit:
Well this is interesting... the prize differences:
Winner: 25 Bux
Top 10: Starship Part
Top 100: 20 Bux
Under 100: 10 Bux

Tiny Tower Vegas: 5K1K

First place 25 bux, top ten gets a starship part. But i'm not seeing any blue jobs for iqaluit. Opened quebec and iqaluit and nothing is showing up blue at the moment :/

Edit: oh the blue jobs finally showed up after nearly 30 minutes.

Hmm... that sounds like a familiar problem, happened with Jerusalem.
I haven't even bought the city yet. I should probably go line up my ducks and then head to bed. Still trying to shake off the flu.

I prefer the Starship part, since I only have an engine

I can send you a Starship Control. (Edit: just sent)

It's easier to shoot up to the top when the prize sucks, the big guns sit out the event, and I found myself with more time to fling planes across the globe while I'm lying in bed sick.

Sea Knights can do NY -> Quebec -> Iqaluit

Kangaroos can do NY -> Montreal -> Iqaluit (SK can't do the Montreal-Iqaluit hop)

Edited to add:
Just to clarify, Kangaroos can do the NY -> Quebec -> Iqaluit route too.

Mapples can do NY->Iqaluit with fully upgraded range.

I wish Mapples weren't a Mac-only thing. I could have a whole fleet of Mapples if they were available for purchase on the iPhone.

It's taken me a while to save 8,000+ bux, but my philosophy is simple: always pick up bux jobs where they appear, keep as few airports open as possible, and upgrade those class 3 airports I intend to keep for more jobs and layover slots. I'll often lay over and cancel non-bux jobs (hitting the "x") where I need to make space on the plane for bux jobs. If I can't deliver them there and then I lay over bux jobs at the nearest larger airport for picking up later.

Where I lose money on part-bux flights, I make them up with 25% bonus flights where all jobs end up at the same airport. Mohawks are good for delivering three bux jobs to the same airport, as the 25% (monetary) bonus means the flight normally turns a profit on top.
