Thank you for posting another video Part147. Does anyone know how many flights are needed until OSL the new Point Merge can operate at full capacity? Right now there is a restriction with delays during heavy afternoon arrivals.

Thanks to the new system I have been delayed every single morning flight since it was introduced in April. Not an immediate success I would say...
To be honest I don't think there is any reduction in CO2 emissions so far, because on my flights in to OSL (10 since start up) we have descended earlier than we used to and thus flying longer at lower altitude.
I spoke to a captain on one of my flights and he stated that they have to take on more fuel to compensate for the longer flight time.
I too wonder how long this "reduced capacity" crap will go on.
