Decrease in CI during volcanic activity - is this intended?
« on: December 30, 2019, 02:56:06 PM »
As the title said.
Major volcanic activity just happened in Europe over in HaF, and european carriers lost ~5 points of CI.
Seems strange, to say the least. Is there any reason behind that?

If your departure punctuality is 0% for a week, CI is going to take a whack. I imagine that's the issue.

So it's a side-effect, not intended.
Might be worth adding a line of code...

Like the Chinese emperors losing popularity in case of natural disaster. People said they had "lost the mandate of heaven".

I agree, realistic. Unfair, but life is unfair.

'I had my flight booked weeks ago, and now you tell me I can't go? Last time I use this airline.' When Eyjafjallajökull erupted, I'm sure that was the thought process of plenty of customers.

Well, maybe... :-[

A friend of mine once made a plane turn back TWICE. First on the taxiway, because a screwdriver was left on the wing and got stuck in the flaps. Then in flight (when they eventually took off), because pieces of the wing got away. 1/3 of the passengers were very grateful, the other 2 moaned at him :laugh:

In that situation, as a passenger, I would want to get on the ground as soon as possible! If enough of the flaps were to fall away that could cause significant aerodynamic issues and may even result in a crash, most likely during low speed when the aircraft is being configured for landing.
