http requests are stateless, you are only connected to the server while you are reading the next page, once you are finished reading the page your browser disconnects and the transaction is complete. A 25 user limit would mean that 25 users can be reading pages at the same time, the 26th will probab...

To agree with the points raised above. I write websites for a living using php and I can verify that it takes no additional bandwith to set a cookie to identify the logged in person. Also there is no such thing as a 'industry standard' 10 minutes. The two most common ways are either 1) 24 hours or 2...

Thirded.

Email them a registration code that they have to enter before they can join an airline.

Older aircraft

I really think we need to rethink the cost basis where we use older aircraft. While its true that in the real world older aircraft have much lower sale prices, this is because of many factors including higher maintenance costs, worn out airframes, noisy engines, outdated avionics, lack of current sa...

That would really kill those of us who are trying to run 'classic' airlines made up of older aircraft. I agree that there are lots of limitations using older aircraft that make uneconomic or unusable for regular passenger service that flynet does not reproduce and therefore there prices should be hi...

An excelent idea. But if a pilot leaves an airline and returns later they should get there old ID back.

I just looked at your aircraft in the database, looks like its 100% and good to go. The maintain aircraft button is always displayed even if your aircraft is 100%, your just not going to get any benefit from changing the oil again if its just been serviced.

We are supposed to provide valid email addresses, sending a code to that address when you register or change your email address would be a good idea. New accounts that have not verified can't join or start airlines and are removed after a resonable period of time.

Good question, I don't really know what there effect would be on competition. For that matter there are airlines that setup hundreds of routes that they never fly. I would think that a reasonable approach would be that a competing route has no effect unless it has been flown in the last 30 days.

I am inclined to agree with John, can we roll back to 6.0 until we can work out the bugs with 6.2?

Re: test

2. when you change the kgs/lbs radio button it incorrectly converts the value. It converted 48 kg to 105 lbs, this is a conversion of 2.1875 whereas the correct conversion should have used 1 kilogram = 2.20462262 pounds. As far as the conversion is conserned, since the client only handles fuel in w...

You enter the amount you need.

Here how it works, after the previous flight there was 2000lbs on the aircraft, you need 10000lbs for your flight.

The client indicates 2000lbs,
you change it 10000lbs,
You are charged for 8000lbs.
