it's really useful to be able to move a schedule from plane A to plane B using the arrow button in scheduling.

I'd like it if it was also possible to save acres of time, and have a check button someplace that says, when doing the above operation, the new plane is automatically reconfigured to have the same seats as the old. I understand this means 4 days of so of maintenance, and expense. For large airlines this would save so much messing about.

I understand that plane types don't automatically match up, so I would suggest the logic is,
the same FCY classes are created on the new plane to match the old plane
the same seat standard (lux,HD etc) is specified for each class on the new plane as on the old plane
that if moving a schedule from, for example, an A318, some 100 seats, to a A321, some 180 seats, that F and C move across at the same size as the old plane, and that Y be the max seats poss for that standard (lux,hd etc).

For planes not yet delivered, used or new, the seat reconfig could be done on delivery.

If for some reason the automatic seat reconfig logic cannot do the reconfig, then the seats on the new plane remain unchanged, as in current behaviour.

I agree.

It would also be nice if you could order new aircraft in an empty seat configuration. Sometimes I'm making a big order and I don't know how I will want the 40th plane configured. If I could have it delivered empty and then pay only once to make the config I want, that would be ideal.  You shouldn't make this option available on non-new planes though, because then you could strip all the seats out before returning it to the lessor  ;)
