I only just switched to a non-Windows Phone, so I'm playing this now. I've only got the first few cities in Central America so far, though, so I won't be much help on events, but I joined the crew anyway! :)

If your playing on Andriod is the flight crew the same as Ios users? I set mine to Sky Chairs as well just hope its the same.

I'm still playing pretty much daily. more if there's an event somewhere in North America or Western Europe. Eventually my airline will span the globe - but it's slow going.

My guess is that the Flight Crews are cross platform, that seems to be through their weird little social network thing, rather than through the phone's OS.

I just need something with better range and then I can start running jobs out to the Easter Island event. :D

I've had some wierd glitches when I was at the edge of my home's wifi network, but other than those this game has just been super fun and addicting all day. My first SuperGopher from Santiago to Easter Island is about to land and deliver the first of several Archaeological Dig Supplies! :D

For anyone else trying to get into that Event, La Paz isn't close enough to Easter Island for a maxed-out-range SuperGopher to make the flight. I found out the hard way. :(
It's okay though, I sold Guatemala and I have some shorter range cargo planes moving all of the dig supplies I stockpiled in La Paz down to Santiago so the SuperGopher can just do back and forth trips.

Oh god, somebody get me out of here!

I now have my own Sky Chair! Muhahaha! Now I just need to grind grind grind till I can actually participate in the events. I started out in the northeast of North America myself. Not many cities that I can afford yet. But it's coming.

I'm nowhere near Tokyo, but I think I can save up enough coin to open Tokyo and Nagasaki before the Robot Uprising is over. I'm focused mostly in the Caribbean so far, though I did some airport juggling to reach Easter Island for yesterday's event.

To test if the flight crew is the same on android and iphone.

At this time the flight crew have done 213 jobs (#63 in the world)
And I am nr 1 with 72 jobs.

If someone on iphone could post the states that they see we can figure out if it is the same on all platforms.

I just downloaded it. I started in Japan.

What is Sky Chairs? Is it like a group or teem?

Tap the menu button on the bottom right, then click "flight crew." Type in "Sky Chairs" in the box, then when you participate in events, our scores are pooled to get prizes!

Also, I didn't notice it for a while, but sometimes you get Bux instead of coins flying past your plane between cities! I'm using those freebies to buy my pilots headsets. :cool:

Okay done. Since I started out in Japan I can do the Tokyo event once I buy that airport.

I've gotten my first Class 2 airplane! It can only fly between Phoenix and Guatemala for now, though.

I just got this on Android, and started in NorthWest America. Just had a special cargo shipment that was a "Time Machine". Looked suspiciously like a certain police box.

Goddamn Naples, everyone wants to fly there, no one wants to leave it! I've never been, but surely it can't be THAT amazing?

I started in NorthEast US and now have my own little "Air Canada" running, with expansions into the US. Thunder Bay is my current bottleneck, with everything running through it.

Since I now have flights from Anchorage to Goose Bay, I'm wondering whether I should head south and get more of North America, or grab Nuuk and Reykjavik and start heading over to Europe with maybe Bergen and Trondheim.

I would recommend trying do build down true north America into south America the Nuuk, Reykjavik line is vary ineffective unless you are doing the Nome to Wellington achievement otherwise I would stay in America until I have allot of class 2 aircraft of even some class 3.

Hope this help I am new to this game also.

I am running a Tokyo London express and trying to minimise the number of extra airports I own to get a maximum of passengers and cargo to the same destination.

Right now I am trying to level up from level 16 to 20 to get some planes to able to do the London New York jump.

How'd you get to Level 16? I'm only at Level 9 after 3 days. I have no Level 2 planes yet, though I have 7 Level 1 planes, and I'm doing a fairly good amount of business with them.

Also, I just had an awesome idea... Someone should do a "Pocket Planes" song to the tune of "Chocolate Rain"! :D

I just read through this whole thread and I have to say two things...

First, where are these 8 Bux passengers? I'm only seeing 1 and 2 Bux passengers.

Second, I saw someone saying something like "only 30,000 coins"... ONLY? I'm Level 9 and I haven't seen that much money total yet! Where are you guys getting all this money from?

I have to admit that I played a little to much the first two days and only having airports in a straight line and always trying to always fill up the planes to the end destination (to get the +25% bonus) and only using M planes.

During the Tokyo event I did mostly run plans from Shanghai to Tokyo to trying to get maximum event cargo to Tokyo but that did lower my profit.


The amount of bux and coins from passengers is calculated by the distance(in a straight line) between start and destination city.
The mistake that many people do when starting playing(I did this) is buying several airports close together and a few farther away this have the problem that it generates passengers to a lot of airports that you don't won’t to go to and to few to to the ones that you would like to go to.
