If you think your AC already had enough fuel from its last stop you can leave it at zero.

That data is for JAL. Is everyone here forgetting that there is ANA too? Why is everyone searching the JAL databse? I know that JAL uses Boeing 767 and 737 on those respective routes. What I also know is that ANA uses Boeing 747-400D on Chubu-Narita, because I HAVE flown in it. I was looking at JAL...

It does say amount of fuel to ADD, I say fly the flight. If you end up with the wrong amount of fuel at the end we can fix it for you.

If you are correct and FSX has that airport at W85,56.83 its off by about 245nm to the west, somewhere in Tennessee.

For example, by that formula: If I want to do a "sightseeing" flight in a Cessna 172, departing and arriving at the same airport, for let's say 20 mins. Distance is zero, so I get 10 pax plus zero and then multiply the whole thing by 1.2 for having 120 reputation. So, now I have 12 pax scrapping fo...

They use the 747-400D for shorter routes than a normal 747 but not that short. Going through the JAL time table (downloadable in pdf form from there website) they only domestic 747 routes from Nagoya are to Sapporo and Okinawa, 500 and 700nm away. There is a point to finding the right sized aircraft...

So 172 X 2: 346 + 10: 376...

That is not fair!!!!!
Actually with your airlines excelent reputation that number gets multiplied by 1.2 resulting in 451. Which I think is very fair given that JAL only uses 734's on that route.

Personally I think that the large upfront payment does not make sence, especially for long term leases. But its really up to the two airlines, hopefully market forces will favor those who take payments over time.

Doing the math the distance limit would end for the 747-400D at 231 nm, assuming you keep your reputation at 120. The fewer the passengers the aircraft can carry, the shorter that distance.

Certainly we are going to work on this formula to make it more realistic and this is not the final answer.

Tourist Flights

We seam to have had a large number of pilots flying tourist flights that depart and arrive from the same airport. That might be fine if your flying a Cessna, but not a Boeing 767. So until we can come up with a better solution I have have tweaked the passenger formula for very short flights so that ...

The closest airport in our database to KCLT is 13 miles away so I don't think the client is getting confused with that. What is your latitude/longitude when you start up (hit control-Z until it shows up in the upper left corner of your screen). Currently our database has that airport at Latitude 35°...

I was wrong, in this case the time is the issue, any flight less than 10 minutes is automatically flagged. Fly around for 15 minutes or so before landing and you will be ok. I can see some market for tourist flights around an area but I dont think more than six passagers at a time would be willing t...

There does seam to be an issue with the flight cheat detect logic where the the departure airport is the arrival airport because the distance between them is zero. The hours of flight in this case is not really an issue. Personally I think the problem either that the system allows you to book a flig...

FS9 lists it as ESDB and does not have a ESTA in its list.
