That’s what I would expect also but there seems to be an own algorithm in WoA after a restart of the game. E.g. at IAD of my own airplanes first the L/XL come in creating all filled up stands there while the M- and S-stands are empty, after that a few M-planes come in followed by all my 5 BAE142 freighters at once and than a bunch of S-planes come in. After that a mixture of S & M come in.
My fleet consits of 65 L/XL-, 130 M- and 45 S-planes.
It would be really cool if planes get timestamps for their arrival so that after a restart the cue is the way at what they would have arrived originally.
@RudiMentaer75 Yes, I get the same. My L/X flights all seem to be grouped as well (sometimes ahead and sometimes behind M). I can send a 787 from IAD to SAN or NGO and they arrive back at the same time.
This is problematic when I want to send a plane on a specific route that is already being flown, so I just throw it on a short hop such that when it returns, I can put it on the long route. Sucks when the reverse happens.
This may be a minor complaint, but as players learn and develop strategies, it becomes an increasingly part of their management effort.
P.S… LOVE your fleet. I just picked up two Concordes, so working on growing diverse fleets at each hub.
P.P.S… one day, it would be awesome to call this “World of Airlines” such that we can move aircraft between hubs depending on seasonal need and opportunity.
I haven’t noticed any grouping on my fleet but I thought the newest arrival always arrives first. The oldest arrival arrives last. It doesn’t make sense and actually needs to be the other way around but that is what I noticed.
It is annoying because after the night it means my Concordes are always the last to land even though they arrived back at the airport first.
