more realistic passenger loads

Post by wings138 » Sun Feb 12, 2017 7:01 pm

At this point every flight is full from most airports. Isn't there a way to make it a bit more realistic and so the numbers on the wouldn't be full.

Ok, maybe that is too much, but just an idea.

That's true!

I did some re-work on the pax formula last year to try to make it more realistic. One important factor is how many passengers have left the airport recently and the population in the area. If not a many flights have left there is a lot of pent up demand and your flights will be full.

Well, that could be a good idea if I only had a few hundred flights, being the mass update is broken. But, I have a couple thousands and it would take me weeks if not months to go thru them all.

It's not a big deal, was just a suggestion.

The mass update is not working???

Ok I just did a test, it works for smaller number (low hundreds) but did not work when I selected all of my routes (I have about 2300). Will work on that.

have you tried exporting your flight plans in TXT format and adjusting the flight rates, then inmorting them back to FSA? ( always make a backup of the TXT file)

That only works on 50 flight at a time.

There are easier ways.

The bulk edit for more than 900 flights is working again.
