Negative passenger

Post by FishyPower » Fri Sep 02, 2016 6:51 am

So I just crashed 3 times in the past 24 hours, and being a new airline, My airline is at 30+ ratings (Press F to pay respect). Anyways, while I trying to recover my airline, I noticed that some how I had negative passengers when I look at the briefing documents. Any1 can explain this to me?

There are a number of formulas at work that determine how many passengers are available for your flight, these include the population at the source and destination airports, connecting flights, how many flights along that route have been done recently, the ticket price and the reputation of the airline. With a reputation of 30 you're not going to get many passengers but it should not go negative.

What airline are you flying for and what airport are you flying from.

You can also mark the crashed flights for review and we can delete them.

I am flying for Atlantis Airway (Only person XD)
I remember it was from WMKK to WSSS
Anyways, it doesn't matter anymore, got my reputation up after spamming flights from WSAP to WSSS.

My new question is how do I engage autothrottle on a A319-100LR (iFDG Airbus A319-111) When I click the button on my dashboard, it doesn't work, neither does the hotkeys.

Never actually used the iFDG Airbus, with most modern aircraft, you set the speed and there are two switches, one to engage the autothrottle and a second one on the autopilot to turn in either ias (indicated air speed) or mach

definitely some bugs in those short flights, given the distance is so short and you did it so often the pax should be zero on most of them, but not negative. Will look into it.
