Its what I'm doing, figured I can actually do this event, just not as well as I wanted

You'll do fine, you're sitting right under me at #13. And I was struggling for 21st place in the San Diego event, finished 22nd I think. This one I think if we commit to it, we can make top ten. Unless all the heavy hitters come out of the woodwork and decide to take over the leader board.

If you want to speed things up and can spare a few Bux, try boosting you planes when empty on their back trip.
I noticed that boosting my empty Roos back to Shenjiang just after they unloaded in Tiksi (35 minute trip) only cost 1 Bux.

Why do you even bother?
Just kill the poor b.stards that have been sitting in your airports for 48h!
It's not like you need the coins, just take the last Bux jobs and close up, no?

Out of boredom, Ive decided to pretend to be a news reporter for Pocket Planes. Many of you know me as the guy who lets his brain dance wildly. Well, right not its doing the Gangnam right now.

I guess I'll report on events and weather, feature user/airline, and I'm guessing featured flight? still in the works if you guys like this... I'll discuss more later.

Attack this post!

Yes Yes ! I need someone to take over my reporting job. I was too busy to do much. I haven't put in a single plane (Bought Tiksi, then realize I need more cities)

Was going to sit this one out, but forgot about the Achievement, so I might just do enough to get that done. Just added a London/Paris -> Rio/Sao Paolo route and got my planes back running their regular routes so it'll probably be a slow haul since I don't want to reorganize again to really go hard at it.

hmmm that is a good question! I usually kill the low value jobs. This time I couldn't bring myself to kill off the 1900 coin Nagasaki jobs, cuz I get 7000 coins by delivering 3 in a Mohawk. And my city was full of these layovers.
I've finally cleared them out, picked up Mohawk P parts in the market and I'm now back in business. currently ranked #10 with 112 jobs delivered to Tiksi. Going to bed soon, I'll prolly drop down to Top 25 by the time I wake up.

Ok.

Back from LA, weekend house guest was just dropped off at the Victoria Clipper terminal, and I am at work.

Time to get serious about some Pocket Planes!

Also, where are we all at on the race to 44,500 BUX? I haven't made as much progress as I had hoped, but I am currently at 17,708. Everyone else check in!

I'm at 52,875 but I don't have the heart to trade them in yet! (would be 1,424,320,312 coins!)

I think I'll probably do a single bank exchange when I've completed the Airpedia checklist and completed the 44 local event checklist. At that point, I'll have "finished" the game, so it would be a good time to go for the maximum airline value.
