Add selection for: Domestic - International - Longhaul
I think a world area (e.g. North America, South America) with checkboxes would be better.
Having this filter in combination with fleet types will allow you to separate these routes easily.
I often find myself disagreeing the games definition of short intnl and longhaul...
Though personally I could do without this in general, as I find these routes by fleet type (though checkboxes and combining multiple types in one search would be great)
Add Selection for "Range" of LF
Add selection for "Range" of NM (Route Lenght) - useful when you add up a new fleet and you are avaluating which route fits better the new aircraft just bought, for example
Personally I would not use this as I research routes before I buy aircraft. If it's a new role in my fleet I do my route research in the route planning screen, and if it is a replacement type I compare it to the type
Add selection for "please identify all routes with shorter turnaround than standard selected in settings" - Or something like that. - sometime we shorten a little bit turnaround to fit one flight more to our plane, but if situation evolve I really cannot remember where were those routes even if I really need to find them.
+1, also useful when adapting schedules to available slots
NM selection should be a range, so more than and less than - I think easy set-up there
Same for Max Capacity
Add selection for price Range
Add selection for cruise speed
Add selection for turnaround time
I think these two are overdoing it a bit...
Cruise speed makes little difference when staying in a category (prop/turboprop/jet/supersonic).
A little general knowledge may be expected.
Turnaround, usually doesn't differ hugely and if it does, does it matter?
It would be great to have aside two numbers: average pax demand and average pax demand covered. This will help us to go deeper in evaluation only where we think we might have some space, otherwise now we need to go throught every single airport of destination wasting really lot of time, as things evolve and this search has to be done regularly. Save our time here please! :-)
I have mixed feelings about this...
One the one hand side: yes, very convenient. On the other hand side: No, would take out the effort and the potential for keeping unexpected routes to yourself (if no one else can find it.
One comment aside:
I would dream to have a feature in "Open new route" where I select the fleet I'm gonna use and after that I can search for airports in a range of Flight time (with bot option: flight time std, and flight time with time zone applied). This would help a lot the 7-day schedule set up.
Flight time is coupled to range, so we already have this...EDIT
: so I am scheduling some ac with a seven day schedule. A next page knob on the add route list would be great! Even better if it remembers the selection from the previous page. Also with the "create routes for next seven days" you need to purchase slots for every individual route after assigning it. So in manage routes when selecting flights an option to mass buy slots for selected routes would be appreciated...
Some good ideas, some that I wouldn't use, some that already exist...
