Refinements in the "too small" warning/penalty
« on: February 10, 2019, 03:02:05 PM »
Hi,

not gonna enter here in an endless discussion about wether its fair or not, how it works, etc. It's only about an inconsistency I noticed.

SIN-ITM:      2667nm    //    ~820 demand      //    too small with the A32x
SIN-GMP:     2511nm    //    ~1150 demand    //    not too small with the A32x

The year is 1993 (GW#4).

So basically, a mere 6% range increase paired with a 40% decrease in demand fires the "too small"?
Or the other way around: why a quite thicker route almost the same distance doesn't fire "too small"?

The relation/proportionality between the two seems a bit off.

Funny story. Neither route currently exists nonstop IRL, so no direct comparison exists.

Closest examples (SIN-NRT, SIN-ICN) seem to be using widebodies even though these segments hang on the edge of acceptable in a narrowbody.

Because KIX and ICN opened.

SIN-KIX is currently flown with:
 - 1xA380
 - 2x787
 - more with stops (787, A320, etc.)

SIN-ICN is currently flown with:
 - 2x777 (direct)
 - 5xA330 (direct)
 - more with stops (A350, etc.)

I’m kind of on your side when it comes to this one. Distance and demand numbers should be less of a mystery when it comes to determining the right aircraft to use for planning before you get to the route creation screen..makes it easier to fleet plan..

Perhaps a guide..
