Stopover flights

Just tested the stopover feature :slight_smile: Just some things I am wondering about:

  • I can do a stopover flight from Bari to Washington but not from Washington to Bari.

  • i still can fly Washington to Rio without any stopover, but for almost the same distance Washington to Prague I do need a stopover. Something that should be fixed in future, I think. (only talking about M planes)

  • there are 20 Departure slots available for IAD to PRG and only one for PRG - IAD. To be honest I think one, two or maybe even three are enough. More slots makes it quite unrealistic. But I think the 20 Slots are kind of a bug anyway…

That were just some thoughts after testing the new feature.

With this feature Ryanair had started his invasion to America. Soon nobody will be able to stop it…

I successfully reduced or banned Ryanair from my airports and now they show up in IAD … weird :grin:

How do you do that?

I didn’t buy the arrivals where Ryanair is the first airline to arrive. Worked best in BRI, but INN and PRG still get some because I needed the destination.

Ok. Doesn’t work for me then. Have a lot of legacy because I played from the bezinning.

That’s bad. What I have seen as a handicap after the mega update 2 weeks ago is now an advantage for me. I can choose if I want a destination or not.
Best example is my IAD airport. All M-planes I get are two from Southwest and two from Delta. Any other I would need to unlock, which of course I’m not doing.
Now I get the Ryanair too of course.

I thought you were joking about Ryanair at IAD at first, but I… well, have just discovered they now offer transatlantic flights :laughing:

Hi @ICEgamer1705
stopovers from IAD are under development. Departures to PRG were reduced to 1. You are right it was mistake

I hope you have a good insurance since I guess the plane will drop into the Atlantic :grin:

Maybe that is Embraer-190 XXXLR, who knows…

Maybe.:sweat_smile:
But I should be happy, he saves time and money compared to a B737-800 pilot who did a stopover. (@SomeGuy98345 agree, hope that he will land safely, I really don’t want to buy a new plane😬).

Does real airline do this though? Using M size planes to cross the Atlantic on a daily basis? (Scheduled passenger airline not charter)

There are few routes and airlines, and with new types of planes there are more and more.
For example: British Airways use A318 London-New York, TAP portugal use A321XLR Lisbon-Boston, WestJet used 737-8 max from Canadian east coast to UK, Air Transat, … .

Norwegian use to send 737s from the UK/Ireland to parts of the US East Coast.

I’ve got a M gate to PRG open from IAD, has that just happened? I only noticed as a FedEx 737 landed & I wondered where it was from

Now there is no airline flying M planes from IAD to PRG, this connection is now only for players’ planes.
But there are airlines in opposite direction (from PRG to IAD) for example Ryanair.

Looks like Ryanair CEO decided, that route to IAD - totally unprofitable.


Not much money for an E190 to be away all day
