Overnight Fuel Stop vs. Early Arrival
« on: March 29, 2012, 03:16:52 PM »
Can someone advise me if it is better to arrive non-stop (4:40am) or take a fuel stop and arrive after 5am? The departure time of both options is between 2300-0000.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Stopover is never a good option unless you are forced to by route length (e.g. in JetAge, where most planes can't fly further than 3000NM). How about moving the departure time by 20 mins, and just that way make the plane come in at 0500.

Also, there are feature request about setting cruise speeds for aircraft on routes, so that you could tell your pilots to fly slower, in order to arrive later. But yet this is only a request, and chances are (very) low that it will come any soon... :(

cheers,

Thanks for the advice Jonah!

I would push the departure time 20 minutes but it would then depart after midnight.

Can you fly a slower plane?

Thanks for the advice Jonah!

It is Jonah ;) just in case, I suggest reading the NT again... ancient Hebrew name.


Can you fly a slower plane?

Wouldn't that result in either using small planes on large routes -what we all fight against- or having a new fleet group as worst case scenario?!
