I notice most retailers show it out of stock and the price on Amazon have jumped to higher than MSRP.

"Out of print" sounds so terminal to me. I would not be so quick to jump beyond "out of stock = end of print run" unless better insider knowledge was revealed.

I'd assume between prints, but then again it wasn't a massive TTR-level hit, and some pretty good Alan R. Moon games (Union Pacific, Elfenland, 10 Days in Asia) are out of print, so I guess it's possible that there won't be a second printing..

I emailed Rio Grande to ask about this and got a reply:

We are out of stock and looking to reprint this year. Thanks

glad to hear it. I hate when I find a game I like, but it out of my price range, and I hope that teh price will go down, just to have it go way the F up.

Played this with a friend and now I find out it's out of stock everywhere. Hoping the reprint comes soon.

I too was sad when I watched the video on this game and thought, "that'd be fun" only to find the price sky high or unavailable everywhere.

I love TtR, and this looks like enough variation to feel familiar and still fun.

So take a look at another one lesser known yet providing some broad similarities: Jet Set should not have availability problems right now.

Just a warning... it's a great game, but it's actually completely different game from TTR. Not route-building but stock manipulation.

Decided to just check with Rio Grande about an update. Sounds a little less promising on the "whether" part, but hopefully a reprint will come about this year:

From Rio Grande (Jay): "We are waiting for information from the original publisher - whether and when they will reprint. Thanks Jay"

Yikes. Let's hope this gets done.

"whether" isn't good, that doesn't sound promising at all. Hopefully it all comes together, I keep hearing how great this game is and many respectable reviewers saying its' a must-have for a collection. I'm really anxious to try it out.

If you are willing to fork out money, Amazon.de still stocks the Abacus Spiele supposedly-Multilingual version.

The amazon.de version has a German language on the box and the rules are in German, BUT all the components are language neutral - i.e., same components regardless of where you get the game, and none of the cards have any text required for the game; only numbers. The English rules can be downloaded from the Rio Grande website. I ordered a couple of copies from .de and got them in less than two weeks and about $50 each including shipping! Played with some friends the other night after downloading and reading the rules from Rio Grande. All went well! Highly recommend doing this for anyone wanting the game.

That's a good way to get a hold of a copy. It's funny since I just had a friend visit Berlin recently and he generously brought back Tobago and The Palaces of Carrara for me. Didn't even cross my mind to throw in Airlines Europe! Doh! Next time I guess!!

BTW the price you see on the .de site is about 18% higher than you'll actually pay because it includes the VAT for European buyers but will be taken off your price if you ship the the US. Just a tip, don't let the higher euro price scare you off. It's worth dropping it in the cart and taking it up to check to see what the real cost is.

I think we just have to wait. It seems like it is going to happen.

Got this email today from Rio Grande Games:


Will Airlines Europe be reprinted? If so, when? Will there be changes to the game if reprinted?

We expect it next month and know of no changes. Thanks

Jay, wherever you are (probably working at Rio Grande Games!)... thanks for being patient with all of us and our constant nagging about Airlines Europe! We look forward to hopefully purchasing it next month. It is coming out next month, right Jay???

A month away, I'd hope that they'd have an official announcement at this point. Might influence my boardgame budget which might be one last big splurge before the end of the year. If I could preorder this at one of the big online retailers along with Dead of Winter, I might go that route.
