[-] treat 739ER like 752
« on: July 08, 2013, 09:48:12 PM »
Hi Sami,

the 739ER seems to be the logical RL and AWS replacement for 752s. I don't believe it is treated as such in route management, for routes between 2000-2900nm routes (LF dropped from 95% -->30%). can that treatment be changed to match how the 752 is treated on those routes?

737 is not a Transatlantic plane, like the 757 really originally is not either. Both, especially 757, will work to some extent if there is no competition but against a widebody on a big demand route they will not work and this has been a fully intentional change due game dynamics.

Also, the grouping on this is done on fleet group basis so I cannot really separate one model from there.

Ok, thx. is it the same for non-transatlntic routes, like europe middle east routes ~2400nm? do those routes warrant a wide-body? I feel like a wide body is a bit much for those routes, at least in RL!

It depends on the specific route... whenever the sign "this aircraft may be too small for this route", you have the penalty...

It's not just distance, it's a combination of distance + route demand + type of plane used...


For example, you may fly a long 950nm route with few demand with a turboprop and have no trouble at all, but you will get the penalty in a 800nm one with huge demand (with the same plane)...

Is competitor's type of plane accounted into this as well? Or is it the time period (DOTM time vs MT time)?

Coz I have no small plane warning flying anywhere on a B767-300ER in MT, but I got warning in my DOTM route which is 5000nm long, 360 pax demand only, and served by DC10 by a competitor  :-\
