There are some high demand routes that, due to my aircraft choice, require that I have many flights scheduled.
I've noticed that the pax allocated varied between flights scheduled close together given the number and the need to optimize utilization. Having researched it, I find that flights scheduled "less than an hour apart" are treated as "one aircraft" and that the demand is calculated on that, then split between those aircraft. (at least that is how I read it)http://www.airwaysim.com/forum/index.php/topic,44808.0.html
Question: Is that calculation precisely within each hour band, for example it looks at the flights between 1:00pm and 1:59pm as one band, but a flight at 2:00pm would fall outside that calculation, and applied to the 2pm band? Or, is it a relative calculation (i.e. based on the actual time apart between individual flights)?
If I knew, I could schedule accordingly.
Anyone know, or have links that already answer this?
