San Jose / San Francisco not possible !
« on: March 04, 2019, 11:28:03 PM »
Hello,

I have my base airport at San Jose.
I try to do a route beetween San Jose and San francisco. it's not possible.
The San Francisco airport doesn't appear in the list of airports, when i try to open a new route.
It's doesn't show as well by it's code.
I have been to San Francisco, no airlines have a route to san jose.

SO how to open this route?

Well i just look at the map and see the distance beetween both city is 67 kms, so it's too short... well thks anyway !

Yes below 75 I think you cannot open a route. Good luck.

Fun fact, but United used to fly between the two cities and there may have even been an SFO-OAK flight.  I have an old UA flight schedule from the 1980s with these flights.  PSA used to do similar in the LA area. I think it was left over from the pre-1980 regulated environment before the hubs were fully established...I.e, there might be a flight like SNA-SJC-SFO-SEA.

For nostalgia buffs, from the June 6 1986 united schedule:

Flight 509 departs SJC at 7:15pm arrives SFO at 7:37pm it was operated by a 727 and was credited at 30 miles

Flight 509 operated BNA-DEN-SJC-SFO

The return flight was 76 leaving SFO @ 6:25am and arriving SJC @ 7:00
76 was also a 727 that went SFO-SJC-ORD-LGA

In addition, there were 2 morning departures from SFO to OAK...an 11 mile route

746 d5:45 a6:05. 727 routing SFO OAK DEN ATL CAE
750 d8:56 a9:25 also a 727 that started its day in LAS (Vegas) going LAS SFO OAK ORD PVD MHT

PVD-MHT was 84 miles and scheduled @ 8:05pm arriving 8:35pm

That's about as much time as I can spend as sadly a 30 year old airline schedule has taken on an old book smell :)

This simulation has some flaws... nothing out of the ordinary ;)

In terms of Island routes, someone may know of a shorter one, but the shortest I've had in the game is Saipan to tinian...10nm.   ;)
