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.

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.

It's not like you need the coins, just take the last Bux jobs and close up, no?
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.

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.

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.
