Strategy

This plane is not recommended to be operated in between large cities due to depreciation factors and its slow speed. Although it has moderate fuel efficiency, the slow speed, limited range and low passenger capacity of this plane means you can not make huge profits with it.

When this plane is being compared to the CRJ Series, the latter is better in all aspects and can give you 1500-2000K profit every month when operated with the correct strategy.
