Color coding in timetable

Post by G-BOAD » 01 Jun 2009, 17:16

Does blue indicate a discontinued flight? What about light blue versus dark blue?

Red is codeshare?

Yes, your observations are correct. Please take a look at the Legend tab/PDF for the full explanation.

Thanks Aaron, I always overlook the Excel sheet tabs because they're so small and at the bottom of the window.

Next question, why are all the Delta 757 flights discontinued?

Because all the Delta 757 routes that aren't discontinued are located in the SkyTeam timetable. Our timetable only shows discontinued routes, or airlines that don't have their own electronic timetable.

Really? I thought the spreadsheet had all SimAirline.net flights.

No, that'd be immensley difficult to maintain (Flight shcedules frequently change) and the file size would be huge.

That is a major problem that I thought might come up. For a lot of our airlines, all the flights are in the timetable. If someone was to see that, they might assume all simairline flights are based on those schedules.

This isn't a problem on our end, but more on the person's end. The instructions are very clear in every VA's Flights page: discontinued flights are on the SimAirline.net timetable while regular flights continue on the airline's timetable. For the most part, only defunct airlines have all their flights listed on our timetable. The rest are discontinued flights.

I am sorry for entering here at this late date but I am confused or maybe just dumb. :smokin:

I have the Timetable and skyteam information my question is are the flight numbers
acceptable for pireps from either of these information sources?

A sidebar I have seen it said it is hard to get the start times as posted in the time table. My method is to start the sim at 10 minutes prior to push back
This allows for a cold start setting radios.a tire kick inspection ground and flight clearance etc then at 5 minutes prior to PB I start engines, disconnect the Jetway close doors, turn on the no smoking and seat belt signs. I use a push back app and at 15 seconds to PB I inniate the PB app and am under way within seconds of the actuial PB time. At end of flight upon arrival at gate set the brakes and pause the sim then get the time this the time I use for my pirep I hope this is correct.

Everything is correct except starting engines prior to pushback. The ramp crews would not take kindly to that--engines start during pushback.

How many times have you flown on an aircraft then?!

Every time I have flown, the engines start once you are well seated and have waited for all the cargo to be loaded. Generally the engines will begin to start while the aircraft is being pushed, so by the time the tug stops, the aircraft has it's own power.
