Title: You Guys here are insane..
Post by: HAM1056ASV on July 11, 2015, 10:21:22 PM
Seriously, how can one produce so much AI Flightplans at a Time.  :o

I just updated my AI this Afternoon thinking I would be up to date with AIG again, jumped into our 727 and took a Flight from Lisbon to Frankfurt, and when I had arrived and checked back here now there are again 15 new Flightplans waiting to be installed.. this is so awesome!  8)

And I really know how much Work it is to compile a Flightplan, did this with AIFP for our VA already 2 Times and it took an Eternity..  ;) (Okay we got nearly 7000 weekly Flights but still it's some Work also for smaller Airlines)

So this is my Way to thank you for your ongoing and brilliant Work!

I'm pretty sure you won't see China Southern any time soon. It's a huge airline that is rarely seen outside of Asia. Southwest is basically the same amount of work but satisfies way more people.

Rarely seen outside Asia? Nope. They have routes to both US (5 routes), Canada, France, UK (3 routes), Germany, Netherlands, Austria, Italy, Australia (5 routes), New Zealand, Turkey, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Mauritius and a lot of other places. Plus they soon starts flying to Nairobi. So that China Southern are rarely seen outside Asia isn't correct!

I know about these routes. But most of their ops are never seen outside Asia.

What I do to keep my hard drive clear is just adding the flights to a specific airport so CSN is represented with just 10-15 flights on my side.

Understandable. But since China Southern are one of the largest airlines in Asia, then it's quite important. Some people still fly in Asia.

a few reasons why i think china southern is important.

there hub is in ZGGG, which is a newly released airport made by bridge simulations: http://secure.simmarket.com/bridge-guangzhou-baiyun-airport-zggg_fsx-p3d.phtml

it is also a hub for fedex:

and sense the last relese of china southern flightplans, they have acquired the 777-300er, and have started flights to JFK.

its also another great destination for the pmdg 777

Also, don't forget that China Southern is the third largest airline *in the world* by passengers carried and the largest outside of the US based on fleet size.

That said, China Southern and China Eastern are beasts when it comes to schedules.  Never say never, but I personally am only that crazy every couple years.

I've got both China Eastern and Southern written down on the AIG dispatch list. China Eastern long haul is completed but the short haul fleet has some way to go. I'll get round to China Southern ASAP.

As someone who flies regularly in Asia, i'll hope to get these finished by the end of this season. But of course I can't guarantee this due to real life.

Obviously if anyone is interested in a joint go at these airlines than any help is welcome  ::cheers::
