Plane is unable to fly route even though it should be able
« on: March 24, 2020, 11:54:40 PM »
I have several variants of the A319-100 flying FCO-LHE (2,990 NM) with payload limitations as shown on the route planning page.

Plane 1: Variant 1 with only 2,310 NM nominal range is able to fly the route. Standard weight variant.
Plane 2: When trying to schedule variant 2 with 2,760 NM nominal range, I get the attached error message, that the schedule can't be made due to a payload limitation. +9.5 tn MTOW variant.

I don't understand why plane 1 is able to fly the route while plane 2 isn't.

different engine? different MTOW?

My guess is until the plane is delivered, AWS uses the fleet minimums since the aircraft page doesn't exist yet to look it up.

All 319s are under 2000m needed for lift off, all runways in this case are over 3000m. Something else is dividing by zero here.

I am surprised Variant 1 can fly the route. It says: 2310nm range while the route is about 2997nm (GCMAP), add head winds and distance
via air routes and you're well over 3000nm on the way back.
Have a look if variant 1 is actually carrying any meaningful payload.
