50-50 chance of user error vs bug report, but has anyone else had difficulty (or in my case impossible) to swap plane types?
I wanted to put a Comet on a DC-6 route to LHR. LHR has 0 slots at any hour, however, I have one for my existing flight, of course. The departure is about 20:30 and I aligned the Comet base departure to hit the 20:30 time in LHR exactly...but I can't change to the new plane type. It say 0 slots even when I match the LHR departure time exactly to my existing route in the edit route mode.
This used to be fairly easy in the old system in that as long as your LHR departure time (or other slot restricted airport) was the same, you saw your own available slots in edit and could make the plane switch in a few clicks and after accounting for faster speed of the plane. I also tried +/- 30 minutes and all times say 0 slots.
Am I missing a new trick to changing fleet type on an open route, or is this a potential bug issue?...in which I can move this to bug reports. The main issue seems to be LHR has no slots...but this is an existing open route with intended same departure time.
If there is a new feature to do this, would appreciate a pointer where to look.
