747- Turnaround times?
« on: August 04, 2009, 05:00:54 PM »
Well, I guess this may be a trade secret, but are most people keeping their turnaround times at the 1% possibility of Delay limit? (200mins)

I am, and finding it very difficult to utilize the remaining 4-5 hours left in the day. In fact my 747s are idle for about that much time on a daly basis. Profits are great, but wondering how i can squeeze some more flying time out of them!

Hope people will offer thoughts.

Cheers,

NicholasB

I'm not using 747s, but I tend to use turnaround times that are less than 5% delay.  If Company Image is so important in this game, then I don't want delays or cancellations causing possible dents in my CI. 

Its better to fly a low-profit route rather than keep your aircraft idle, though, but I guess it'll be hard to find short route with decent demand from Narita with Haneda taking all the short-haul stuff.

using the ultra long turnarounds is waste of time in my mind.. 10% and you're fine me sayz...... :P

Still wondering, though...  If Delta/Northwest, United, US Airways, Continental, etc., can turn a 757 around in 45 minutes on a regular basis, why can't this simulation do it in less than 70?  (And if you want ~1%, it's 115 min!)   ::)

Yeah I wondered that too, the turnaround doesn't seem all that realistic IMO
