Long-haul flights
« on: April 07, 2015, 02:30:39 PM »
Hey, I have been wondering and wondering how to open some long-haul flights. Precisly what is interesting is that for example Sirion Airlines has scheduled long flights all week days. How is it possible cause some flights takes longer than 24 hours. So how can he/she use the ''all week days'' button on scheduling the flights. When i'm trying to do that, then I have a problem with over-laping flights.

Need some hints, what is the best way to schedule and fly long-haul flights?

Thanks in advance! :D

Searching for 7 day scheduling will help you a bit.

In short, you can have the same flight number on a route 7 days per week, even if it is created as 7 individual routes. Then, that schedule is distributed across a number of planes (typically 7).

Therefore, each plane might do 4-5 destinations in its weekly schedule, and each plane does the same set of routes, but a day later in the 7 plane set.

Well, the answer is that it depends on your ultimate goals, distance of the flight, etc.

With 2 aircraft, you can do 6x weekly as a start of a 7 day schedule -

AC1 flies RT1 on 1/3/5 and RT2 and 2/4/6
AC2 flies RT1 on 2/4/6 and RT2 on 1/3/5

Then, when you add another plane, split it a little further and make room for RT3 and so on.

The other alternative that works well for single planes, if the routes is short enough (for example, to the northeast US from poland), you can just slide the schedule for a single destination on a single plane.

Example departures:

Day 1: 1600
Day 2: 1500
Day 3: 1400
Day 4: 1300
Day 5: 1200
Day 6: 1100
Day 7: 1000
A check: Day 1, 1100
