DOW Flights

Post by kingsak » 12 Oct 2009, 20:11

Anyone know when the next DOW is gonna be posted? (No rush - just curious)
Also, how do the flights get submitted? What criteria is used for chosing them?
Thanks & Happy Skies! :D

If you fly a flight to/from the Destination of the Week, you would file it just as you would a normal PIREP. There aren't any bonuses for flying to the Destination of the Week, we just spot light different destinations to suggest flights that may not have been considered normally.

How's about users submitting Destination of the Week (DOW) flights. :!:
Lately I've been counting on them for flt. ideas and hate to see 'em go :(
Even with the VA closing we could continue part of the "tradition".
Maybe a seperate forum heading?
Just an idea I'm not tryin' to be a jerk!
The closing is 6 mo's. away...why be sad and not fly :?:
Everyone say's they want to go out with "Bang" :shock: Well,
LET'S FLY!!!!!!!!!!!!
:?: :idea: :!: :!:

Quoting the viewpoint article:
SimAirline to Close in 2010 wrote:Will some parts of SimAirline.net stop now?
Yes, we will stop updating some aspects of SimAirline.net now. These include Destination of the Week, management hiring, designing new route maps and terminal maps, development of a classic Northwest Virtual, adding additional discontinued flights, and creating aircraft that we do not currently offer. We will of course continue to update the remainder of the website content through April.
Sorry, but what's done is done. You don't need to rely on DoTW in order to make flights. If you're looking for a unique destination, try using the Destinations checklist and see if there is one you are interested in.
