eehhmm to be best of my knowledge American air carriers do have traffic rights to fly intra European flights. And also pick up pax in Europe, before continuing the flight to another European country.
Was it last year, or 2009, that United operated LHR-BRU-LHR with a T7. Purely as a means to keep their slot in LHR.
It is a pity that the A-B-C-A rounting is lost. It favours operators out of big airports, or at least makes it more difficult, and boring, to set up an airline in a small airport.
I understand the reason for not allowing this, Sami. But to be honest..... The game is in NO WAY simulating real airline operation. Many things has been mentioned as to how it differs from real life, like it is not possible to operate a regional carrier/airline operating only small aircraft, profitmargins are ridiculously high and so on. So you keep to the simulation in one way and not in others.
Please understand me correctly. I like the game.... Heck I love the game. I spend way to much time here, but for me it is a game. Nothing near real life simulation.
