It's anyway just the first version
Since it sounds like this mechanic will be subject to further development, would it be possible to include/enhance the system to allow for scheduled actions for upcoming maintenance tasks? (Such as change seating config/install hush kit/convert aircraft during next C/D check).

Currently no, but C check would be reasonable. That would change the cost calculation then.

It's anyway just the first version (does not have multi-conversion support yet)

Thanks for the quick reply. Perhaps it would be possible to have the option of performing a C/D check while the aircraft is undergoing retrofit - but simply add that to the total cost (like when requesting a C/D check on aircraft purchased from the used market) and also have the heavy check time absorbed into the conversion time and vice versa.

For example, lets say for a particular model a conversion takes 30 days, a C-check 10 days and a D-check 35 days. If I request a conversion + C-check, I get the aircraft back in 30 days. If I request a conversion + D-check, I get the aircraft back in 35 days.

I'm interested to see how this changes commonality. I'm pretty sure it has been said the Commonality System is something to look at at some point. For a ATR it doesn't become much of an issue. All you do is convert the older one's to Cargo and bring newer later models in as your passenger aircraft.

But it does bring up some interest with B707's, DC-8, DC-10's when we all retire those but might move them across as cheap freighters. 3 fleet types becomes a nightmare. I would imagine in the long run with changes and updates to commonality this becomes less of an issue, but for the time being as this feature is introduced, it could prove interesting. But we'll see how this evolves along with everything else in the pipeline.

- So if I understand correctly, even if the catchment area for BRU is grown to very large, they still can't catch traffics from AMS/DUS/LUX/CDG? Or American border town airports like BUF cannot actually(effectively) catch traffics from Canada border town? Both of them seems to be something that happens in real life.
- And so even if I grow the airport of LGA to become a very large one and dwarfed all other NYC airports in term of international long haul traffics, if competitors start flying long hauls from other NYC airports, I can't really do anything to compete against my competitors?

original statement
Edit: I believe the IL96-M and IL96-400 should have same seating capacity as well as cargo capacity?

Edit: Also, if what I am reading is correct then the IL-96-400T was not supposed to be powered by Russian engines?

For the DC10/MD11 and F27/F50 commonality change, is that effective in current game worlds or only future game worlds?

which makes for an interesting dilemma. Stay with F27s? Go F50? Switch to regional jets? Take another brand?

I'll most likely go with the F28's later on i think, assuming it doesn't launch in the middle of the night, like most planes have done so far...

Given that the DC10 won't launch for another while in GW2 and it will be ongoing for another real life year, can it be combined with the MD11 group for this world? All the other worlds they're far past useful at this point....

Fokker F.27 and F50 fleet groups have been combined.
Are the Fokker F28 and Fokker 70/100 also combined? This because these are certified as Fokker F28 variants:

Fokker 70= Fokker F28-0070
Fokker 100= Fokker F28-0100

Type certificate Fokker F28

Their speed is not the same(421 ktas against 403), so it would be problematic. That's the same reason Q400 is a seperate group from DH8C

There are also some other aircrafts, like Convair 240 and those pother model in the same series, that in real life have different speed, but are merged into same family and share same speed for the game's purpose.
And then it should probably  also be asked that is the speed different of 421 vs 403 due to aircraft performance or airlines' choice of speed

For MD-11
- New models aren't in the same family as original model in CCGW
- There are no Md-11 on used market in cargo challenge USA, mind to drop some there?

The production line of Boeing 737NG series are closed after a very short moment in Cargo Challenge Europe too, a moment that airlines cannot gain sufficient cash to buy new planes and suffered from the fuel spike bug

People there are also waiting for such supplies  ;D

For airport in Seoul, after Gimpo airport opening time adjustment, have the Seoul airport that was used before the opening of Gimpo airport implemented in the game?

Highly doubt it. As there has been no posted data.
