Re: Cargo System/Packages

Well, it would make sense for a larger aircraft to take smaller packages if they are going to a hub to be delivered elsewhere by GA planes. So just eliminating them from the larger planes would cause it's own issues. Nobody is going to fly an 88 lb package in a 208 from LAS to BOS. BUT if that packa...

Re: Cargo System/Packages

As fast as guys are pulling cargo with jumbo jets, you may have to regenerate the package system more frequently. Just an observation.

Re: Briefing Document ZFW and Client ZFW not matching

valid points sir and I have asked for a cargo loading tab in the client for a long time. It used to be there was no way to get down to MLW as the rampers would stuff the plane so full you could only reject enough cargo to make max takeoff weight. In some planes, especially GA and regionals, there wa...

Re: Cargo System/Packages

#3 in my Package System video series, this one shows how to transfer plane to plane and plane to Airport Center and back. It also shows how REALLY EASY it is to load a plane that does not have a route to fly those packages to their destination.

Re: Cargo System/Packages

Yeah pretty slim pickings for us out of Boise (KBOI). We moved some up to McCall (KMYL) where the "fishing" is a little better. Boise is a mixed use airport with both commercial and GA, it has one of the country's Pilatus PC12 dealers on property as well as a FedEx facility. Decent freight for the b...

Re: Cargo System/Packages

Hey here is a "thinking out of the box" idea ...... regarding the paid memberships, what if you established a higher tier, Platinum Plus .... for an extra little fee, your airline would get additional package cargo loads based on analytics of where the planes fly along with a 50% discount on Airport...

Re: Briefing Document ZFW and Client ZFW not matching

I tried to replicate the issue and could not. Mine match up within a pound. Very odd.

FSX Steam / win10 / latest client

Re: No Economics

I had this big lengthy comment all typed up, ready to press "submit" and realized it will only attract negative comments. So having cleared it - I will simply say I think it is a bad idea and is a waste of Joe's precious time and resources. He has done so much to make FSAirlines so much better this ...

Re: Cargo System/Packages

Well that's not good. You may have to submit a support ticket detailing the issue so Joe can see the flag and get to it top priority. Have you tried transferring those packages to another aircraft at that same airport? Have you tried the Release Packages tab in the Actions bar where you select the a...

Re: Cargo System/Packages

I will be making a better video covering the new features of the package cargo system so once that posts, please delete #2 as it will be outdated. Question: I lost the link to the normal delivery process penalty system ..... I know it's 2 days / 4 days for pri/non-pri packages but there is a degradi...

Re: Cargo System/Packages

Make sure you watch my latest video You MUST go up to the VA PACKAGES link in the top right to release packages AND the aircraft cannot be booked for a flight. The problem with making an automated offload is for those (like me) who like to make a 2 or 3 stop flight and drop packages on the way. Gene...

Re: Cargo System/Packages

Hey I just found a new tab in PACKAGES / Actions tab Deliver Selected Packages Did not know that was there. Is that new? Pretty nifty, really saves a bunch of steps! Here is installment #2 on how to work the system, this one focuses on ground delivery and releasing unwanted packages. https://youtu.b...
