What do you guys think about that?

You need more planes to get the people out of there... They aren't happy about being layed-over. That's why they dont pay as much as the ones already waiting.

Okay, someone has programmed pure evil into the airport closures. First Chicago closed for an hour and I had to reroute everything to NY. I had been sending routes from North/South America to Chicago and Asia to NY. Oops, Istanbul shut down for an hour. Luckily I only had one plane stranded to the east, but that just adds to the many stranded in Chicago. Sigh.

EDIT: Yay, I can move my stranded plane east from Seoul to Istanbul... oh, no I can't. Seoul closed down for an hour when Istanbul opened.

This isn't a game, it's a psychological experiment.

I love the fact people in this forum are starting to do crazy things like this and sending blimps on long flights now whilst waiting for an update

I haven't found any such workaround in Tiny Tower. You can zoom right to the top by clicking on the little tab that states how many floors you have, but getting back to the ground floor means scroll, scroll, scroll.

CastlePage and I have been battling for position for much of this event! I've got the lead right now (2567 vs 2501), but am sure it won't last...
coastcat:
- that's what I've been doing. randomly tapping on one to unload all.
- there are a couple of ways in Tiny Tower to get to the top. like you said, tap on the number of levels. tap on the zoom too ... when you get out of zoom mode you're still at the top.
- it's been wonderful meeting you on the leaderboard in the last few events. Good company But at the end, you always managed to make it into the top 10 while I'm somewhere in the teens I don't mind not in the top 10. It's the fun of seeing friends (rather than a bunch of numbers).

LOL 325m coins! I barely have 2m coins. Now looking at 2.1m planeslot.
BTW, Vic, you have more plane slots than I have levels Currently at level 30. I'm hearing the lvl 3x boredom but so far, I'm still chasing coins and plane slots.
Edit: Love to see how you keep all 42 planes in the air. Blimps not counted.

Hoggy: I sent first blimp (from first mystery parts) on a 2 day trip which just ended. I was planning a long west-east trip, so initially started at chicago. Made the 21min trip to New York only to realize it cannot cross the atlantic to London. The blimp ended up traversing Tokyo, Seoul and Beijing because I had no other nearer city than Tehran LOL.

What if we could select a "priority city" and doing so would rearrange the jobs list, placing your "priority city's" jobs at the top and the remaining jobs could still be based on distance? You could change the city once a day or more if you pay a few bux. That would save some scrolling but not make things too easy.

Seriously? I woke up and Dhaka and Jakarta are closed due to Tropical Storms. For God's sake! I have two Aeroeagles and my Sequoia in those cities! Coastcat, I feel your pain.
