It would be nice if we could have the ability to have sub fleet auto registrations.
For example, all my MD-80's are registered with a F-FAxx registration (F-FAAA, F-FAAB, etc, etc). As i am now, I'm operating both MD-81's and MD-82's.
It would be nice if i could make all my MD-81's F-FAxx and my MD-82's F-FBxx so i can see when it comes time to schedule routes which routes can go with which aircraft. The only way to do this now is by hand, which takes up too much time to even put the effort into it.
If you filter the specific subfleet in the scheduling page, as soon as you schedule the route, it takes you back to the main aircraft family scheduling page which you would then have to re-filter the sub fleet just to do it all over again and again.
Currently the only way to tell is by taking the 5-10secs of hovering over the registration for it to show you. This problem is further compounded when you are getting aircraft off the used market at the same time of new deliveries. You could be taking delivery of -82's and then pick up a -81 and go back to 82's. If you are scheduling routes that can only be flown by the -82
Now really, this is not a problem if you are operating Both MD-82 and -81's within the -81's range, but the way i schedule my aircraft, My -82's are only flying routes that a -81 can not fly. The same will be said for my 767's when i start taking delivery of -200ER's. However while I'm taking delivery of -200ER's, I will still have a pretty constant flow of -200's entering the fleet as well so it will be harder for me to keep the registrations organized in a way for simple scheduling.
