Prop to Jet scheduling
« on: July 15, 2013, 08:56:11 PM »
I fear I know the answer to this one, but here we go just in case.

Am I right in assuming in JA that one has the hellish task of completely rewriting and reslotting your entire airline's scheduling when you start replacing props with jets. I cannot see an easy way of doing it. Ok, if your destination is a cheap slot airport, you could buy again, but if you are flying between two more popular destinations... well, it's just a nightmare isn't it?

Do I need to start slot therapy now?

yes its a pain.

Personally i do not start 7-day scheduling until jets come. i just schedule my props as 1-day and 2-day schedules.

When flying into a slotlocked airport, check to make sure that the return slot time still works for jets, by changing the AC type to a jet (just as a test on the route opening screen) and see if a jet departing from that time slot (on teh remote side) gets back to your HQ at a reasonable hour or during the curfew/bad times.

It's a pain.....  but then I tend to think of it as "value for money" - almost like starting another game!  I relish the challenge and it gives me an opportunity to sort out the hellish nightmare I've created while slot-grabbing and "random" scheduling.
