[ok] Range / Capacity
« on: July 15, 2015, 06:09:58 AM »
I have an aircraft 738, standard MTOW configured for 160 pax, and the system informs me that the range (at full capacity) is 1,880 nm.

I schedule this aircraft on a route that is 1,879 nm, less than max by 1 nm.  (ESB-OPO).

When I look at the route planning page (GW3):

it shows capacity of 159 pax (rather than full 160).  The runway seems long enough on both ends.

It's an East-West flight, and the flight time is different (30 minute difference).  But the capacity is 159 (-1) in both directions.

Now that you bring it up, I seem to recall that the system used to (in the past) take the flight time into account, and when at the limit, it would limit the capacity flying West, but not flying East.  I seem to recall that on some routes, I could skip the tech stop one way, but included it the other way...

Back before the tech stops were completely crippled...
