[-] GW1 & min spacing between flights
« on: December 16, 2016, 12:00:37 PM »
JFK-MCO. There is 3K+ daily demand and it seems that 20 mins spacing isn't enough. System wants at least 30 mins, which is ridiculous for route with such demand.

It would be useful to put these numbers in the manual, as far as demand vs. necessary spacing of the flights.

This is something that is not exactly intuitive to a player.  Veteran players have some feel for it, and know how to check.  But new players have absolutely no idea what is going on and why their LF may be crashing.

Have to look if it can be added into some advisor/info view.

But for the report itself. If you have a route with 3000/daily demand, you need 23 minutes of spacing if I look at the formula directly. So for scheduling, 25 minutes is sufficient.

So this is per the design and correct behaviour. But as mentioned this info is not currently clearly visible to the player.

When the time is selected / changed, the page seems to be making a round trip to the server.  Mainly to check the availability of the slots.  So during this round trip, this condition could be checked as well.
