Used aircraft listing page ...

Nothing new here featurewise, just partly visually updated. The left hand filter/search menu will automatically move to top of the screen with mobile browsers (to free up space sideways). With desktop clients the filter menu automatically scrolls down with page scrolling.

Similar filters also on other aircraft pages (like previewed earlier).

The route management (list of all your routes; Routes/Manage/) page will have more powerful data filtering and searching tools. Overview of them:

 - freetext search allows you to search the following: flight number, aircraft (registration), fleet group name, aircraft type (icao), aircraft model name, country name, airport name, airport icao code, airport iata code

 - base airport filter shows departures from that base (shown only if you have more than 1 base)

 - fleet group filter is already similar what there is currently

 - aircraft filter allows the search of all routes of a single aircraft, listing is per model and per registration

 - airport and country filters list all airports and countries your airline flies to.

You can combine any of these filters together to narrow the search/listing. Search results are fully sortable, as per the normal options available at the page currently too. (screenshot only partial as other parts of the page is under construction; will follow later)


Second new feature is that load factor, yield, revenue and profit values on this page show also the previous 7 day's values and the change % (if such data available).

The route listing / management page is almost finalized now for the new layout. The page is technically revised from the top and includes new features, previewed in previous post.

As mentioned in previous post, there is now a set of very useful and powerful filters that you can combine in any form to filter down the route listing results. You can search for routes of individual aircraft, or base, or airport and so forth.

Another new feature is also the change indicator on all financial and delay values. The system shows the average value of last 7 days, and also the average of previous 7 days from that and the difference percentage. Values are color-coded.

Route closure and flagging functions have also new technical features which reduce page loading times (no full page reload for these actions).

As currently, there are 3 views: Financial, Notification and Delay views. Each of them have searchable and sortable fields (ie. sort by max profit for example). Mouseover tooltip data for various fields is still included like currently too.

(pls. note that the change indicator in the second picture's cancellation figures wasn't complete yet in the pic; shows 0%)

Since most data listing pages will have various filters and search options, all of these pages have now also the possibility to reset all the search filters for easy new search. Here's a pic of used aircraft filters.

(filter reset does not trigger a page reload, just clears all filter selections so you can easily make a new input)

Here are two preview images of the "mobile smart" layout. The screen elements will position automatically according to the screen size available. For example the search/filters menu is on the left hand side of the screen for large desktop browsers, but for smaller screens it automatically moves to a horizontal style to the top of the screen. Other elements may have different placements too due to limited width, like here the route action buttons.

Upper screen shot from large desktop layout, lower a tablet-sized device layout.

Small new feature: when opening a new base, or when creating the airline, you can browse for the list of airports as you may know... There's now a new value "number of based airlines" in this listing. Just a simple value to show how many others are there (HQ & bases).

The route detail page is almost completed for the new layout.

It is rather similar to the current one but is technically upgraded and has some new features too. Parts of the visual style and item placement has been taken from the route editor (to avoid unnecessary re-coding and also to create similar layout).

- First picture shows the route overview, you can see here that the prices are directly editable and you have also now the quick links for routewide price adjustment. Aim for the change is to make price management easier also on this page (less clicks etc).

- Second picture shows the route price adjustment in detail. Whenever you click on some pricing field (or press the global adjustment quick links) the Save button will appear. When you click on the price field it will also display the quick links (-10% ..etc) for that individual price box.

- Third pic shows data when no a/c is assigned.

- Fourth pic shows the graphs section of the data. Graphs are bigger and resolution scalable now.

(pic1) Slot info page is visually updated now too. No new features (apart pie chart being more readable).


(pic2) The airport search/selection tool for base finder, slot info and airport info pages is also updated. Visually similar than new route opening and route planning search tools, no new major features.


(pic3) Country information page. No new features (apart the big flag and minor visual changes..)

Airport information page looks like this. No new features really, minor tuning here and there.

(pic1) Scheduling page will have the powerful new filters too. (same as in Manage Routes page)

(pic2, pic3) Tooltips on scheduling page will contain more information too

(pic4) Visually scheduling page's flight bars are almost identical. However the whole page is technically revised from the top, since the old page was (codewise) cluttered and old. Current status is that displaying of the data works but all sub-functions are undone so far.

One clever new feature for scheduling page ...

As you saw there are numerous search and filtering tools for scheduling too. If you search for example with keyword "Fort Lauderdale" the system highlights all the found flights to that airport in red. You can then mouseover for more details of the flight .. etc.

As mentioned in the other thread, most functions of scheduling and manage routes page do not trigger a full page reload anymore. This means faster loading times, and also that your selected filters and search terms will stick despite performing some action.

For example in clearing the schedule you are just given a dialog prompt to confirm the action, and after pressing confirm the action is done at background, and the flight scheduling data is cleared on the go without a single page reload (and only one small query to the server). Similar style will be used in most of the actions on these new pages.

When adding flights or maintenance, and you get an overlap in the schedule, the system will visually point out the (first) offending flight. It highlights the route and blinks the flight bar for some seconds.

Not much new at airline information page .. Just visual cleanup. Here's a quick image of one sub-page.

The scheduling page is now complete. This has been a huge overhaul of the page, it has been completely re-coded (parts of the background functions are the same as before but everything related to the UI is new.)

The aircraft action pages (used aircraft buying/leasing page, aircraft history page etc) do not change that much in the new layout as they are so recent. Such as the following page showing the operator history.
