Turn around time
« on: January 03, 2012, 12:47:55 AM »
I'm wondering if anybody is having the same problem I am having or has some advice.

Here's my issue:

I have a F70 with flight delays related to scheduling.  The flight is leaving late from my base airport, even though there is a 65 minute turn around time from the prior flight.  The minimum turn around time is 35 minutes.  What gives!!  According to the game, I should have less than a 1% chance of delay due to scheduling too short of a turn around time.  Again, any idea on what's wrong or advice on how to correct the issue?

Thanks!

Just wondering, is this happening every flight, or just once in a while??

If you are having major issues with this flight, maybe scheduling an extra 5 to 10 min cushion between turnarounds, given you have enough room in your schedule.

Less than 1% chance, but each chance is independent.  This means that just because you fly 100 flights doesn't mean you'll have 1 scheduling delay.  You could (although unlikely) have 10 delays in 100 flights or 0 delays in 1000 flights--each flight is independent of the previous one.  It's like playing roulette.  Just because the ball lands on red doesn't mean it should statistically be black the next spin.
