Random passenger / cargo amounts

Post by hafeya » Mon Apr 23, 2018 10:06 pm

How about something that would randomize (within a given range) passenger numbers and cargo amounts? Would be more realistic than every flight having the exact same # of passengers and weight.

We have some randomness in passengers, but it depends on your ticket price, passengers available and destination. Most airports have a large enough passenger base that the few flights that do depart don't remove enough to reduce demand, when when there are enough flights I get angry messages asking why someone's plane was not full (I am sorry but flying a 747 between two small cities 400 nm apart will not be full).

Cargo I agree needs a revamp

Thanks for the reply Joe! Most of my flights are with the 737-8/9s on real world routes. Every single flight has been the exact same # of passengers, the exact same baggage and cargo weights.
