Re: My wishes for the year 2020

I would like to see the cargo page search engine default to the maximum size of package the selected aircraft can haul. It currently defaults to the largest size available which only a couple of specialized aircraft can carry.

Re: Landing Fee's

We pay parking fee's as it is. By charging landing fee's, you would be essentially penalizing the people who use the system the most.

Re: Owning Airports

I don't know of any airline in the real world that actually "owns" an airport. For me, it would not be a realistic feature but then again, that's just one person's opinion. Most airports are government facilities, be it state, county, etc. For an airline owning an airport, as owners they could easil...

Re: Overspeed taxi?

I have had the same glitch in the past when rolling out too long too. Not a common thing but it does happen from time to time if your takeoff roll is fairly long or your landing rollout takes longer than "normal".

Re: Cargo System/Packages

NEW BUG: VA PACKAGES NO PACKAGES FOUND We had a 747 fully loaded and now all those packages have disappeared with the flight still booked. ????? :shock: N744RU KLAX-KORD Packages accepted Jan 31. Was there a package update that erased some things maybe? We seem to have been "robbed in the night" as ...

Re: Cargo/Package payment ideas

I've been crunching numbers again and the package system is tilted way in favor of all cargo operations now. For example, our 737-600 which can convert to all pax or all cargo or anything in between makes $2100-$2300 per flight mile flying standard pax config with generic cargo. All cargo operation ...

Re: Just a little request for me

If you have the specifications sheet, go to aircraft database and in the upper right corner, click ADD AIRCRAFT enter the data required and make sure you post a website link of where you obtained your data. Then wait for FSA admin to approve, deny or ask for modifications ....

Re: Cargo/Package payment ideas

I'm thinking "non delivery" of packages should be more than just a fine, maybe a 1 pt airline reputation hit? I can hear the big airlines screaming alreay so maybe not :lol: And the system would have to decipher the difference between non delivery and early release.

Re: Restrict number of passangers and cargo packed onboard

Yup in the seating chart you can put in as many seats as you like as well as limit cargo. Aircraft information page just make a new seating layout and save it, then select it BEFORE you book the flight. 8)

Re: Cargo/Package payment ideas

After discussing in our pilot chat room tonight, the % pay is still the most fair. Cessna pilots should not make the same as 747 pilots. So Disregard all my previous jibber jabber...... sorry :shock:

Re: Cargo/Package payment ideas

Back to the topic at hand, I was confused about the purpose of the new proposal. We have always operated under the theory that once you take a package you either release it immediately, deliver it on time or release it/hold it past the cutoff and face the negative financial consequences. So you are ...

Re: Cargo/Package payment ideas

It would be nice as an "Advanced Financials" option tho. income % or "flat rate" per nm/km. Tying pay into equipment flown would be an administrative nightmare for our purposes as we fly for enjoyment and may go from a Cessna to a jumbo jet in the same day. So for our purposes it may be beneficial i...

Re: Cargo/Package payment ideas

Equipment flown would/could certainly change the pay scale, it would all be based on the union negotiations. So perhaps leave well enough alone before the FSA Pilots Association wants a new CBA. :shock: :lol:
