We are pleased to release a major update for Airline!
Airline has been one of our most popular strategy simulations and it was time for an update! We worked diligently with our customers and we’re ready for you to take a look. Airline has been completely redesigned in terms of interface, while at the same time keeping the strengths of the simulation model and all the great features our customers have come to count on. Students consistently remark that Airline was the highlight of their undergraduate business degree experience!
Airline will be available in Fall 2018 for early release, and full release comes in January 2019!
The following is a broad overview of the improvements we’ve made.
