Author Topic: Traffic level going from 1 to 2 causes taxi times to increase by 150%?  (Read 363 times)

Recently the traffic level at Geneva jumped from 1 to 2. This caused the taxi time for each leg to increase from 10 minutes in most cases to 25 minutes, adding 30 minutes to every flight (+15 minutes to each leg).

Is this the intended function of the traffic level metric? And can I expect every increase to add a half hour to every flight?

Since traffic level is a variable component it should have no effect on the fixed scheduled flight times. And from what I see it does NOT.

The taxi time is based on the old 5-step airport classes and is the same regardless of traffic class level.

Then why is there a 25-30 minute discrepancy between flights I opened yesterday and flights I am trying to open today on the exact same route? Pretty much across the board, no matter how long or short the flight?

I guess I should move this to bug reports.

Changelog has a "bug fix" related to decent times on props that might be causing what you're observing...

Checked and saw that, try again now.

That was supposed to only have a 5-minute impact, if any, per Sami's post. I'm talking 25-30 minute differences.

try again now.
Everything looks good now, back to normal. Saw a couple of the 5-minute changes you warned us about but that was all.
