I disagree. I've been playing since day 1 and I'm now at level 40, but making money has no meaning at this point. I have 24 planes in the air and don't want any more. I have over 12,700 bux on hand, so I could exchange for over 67 million coins if I wanted, but there's no need. I have 20 airports open (out of 45), so it's never a big deal to open or close them.
I've completed all the achievements (even though they don't all show up because that part of the game is very buggy) so the only things left to play for are:
- Waiting for the hot air balloon, Bobcat, Concorde and C-130 Hercules to show up in global events so that I can complete the Airpedia
- Finishing all 45 individual events
So basically my planes sit idle most of the day now unless events show up in my cities, and then I'll invest some time to increases my progress. (Today is unusually busy: Tehran, Sydney and Johannesburg all have something going on.)
But I don't see any point in setting up a dedicated set of routes just to make more coins at this point in the game.
