This happened twice today where I began handling another player’s plane, the app crashed, and when I reopened it there was less than a minute left to handle players’ planes. (They both failed to handle in time even when I held the green speed-up button.)
It’s not a bug, there is a timer for handling the planes.
I think it is a bug & it’s quite common. It’s especially annoying at somewhere like BRI or PRG where it seems to take a while for the Ls & Xs to taxi to the gate & it crashes whilst they’re getting there. You reload the game & like you say you now have 2 minutes instead of 20. It’s been around for a long time & there are plenty of posts about it on here.
I had the same problem a few times and tried to leave the airport and went back in. The handling times were back to normal then.
At least it’s worth a try because at one minute left you can’t handle the plane.
yes this is a good method to get the timer again like normal
Did the game crash or did you have some network problem? If it crashed then if might be fixed but if you had some network problem then its a normal thing.
Thanks all, it’s comforting to know that it’s not just me. I’ll try jumping out and back in if it happens again.
@Rito, I think the second time it was a game crash and not a network problem. The first time, though, I think I just tried to switch between airports. But when I came back to the first airport (not even a minute later) a player’s L-size plane had less than a minute left.
I just feel bad for the players’ planes I missed haha
Contact the devs if the game crashed, they will fix it.
