I am confused by this. All runways on the second one are over 3500m and not in a high altitude environment afaik. The 767-200 is not yet in my fleet but for it to have 96 in the previous route pairing and 9 in the second make no sense to me, perhaps it defaults to the lowest possible/available weight variant?

Until the plane is in your fleet it uses the lowest mtow stats. Once it's in your fleet, it uses the max range example you have in stock.

Ahh gotcha, thanks for letting me know   ;D . Still, this makes things quite confusing for pre planning  >:(, I thought I was bumping up against some issue at HNL.
