Ever Land With No Gates Vacant?

Wed Mar 20, 2002 2:13 am

Hi,

The other day I landed in Seattle Tacoma International and when I contacted ground there were no gates free. I had to taxi to holding in the South Parking and in about five minutes almost all the aircraft at the gate left and I was cleared to a gate. Has this happened to anyone else?

Damn. I always only see maybe 7 or 8 at the MOST with very dense dynamic scenery.

Hi,

I think the time was between one and two pm. Even both D gates were occupied.

Not all the gates total, but all the gates that are availible to AI aircraft. I think there are 8 AI gates. Maybe it was between 11-1. Around those times.

If you edit the traffic with TTools, you can accomplish the same effect. It was quite unrealistic, but I added so many planes to Hamburg Intl in Germany that there were about 10 planes in parking waitin for a gate. It was like every other airport in germany had been closed, and all aircraft diverted to Hamburg.

I just landed in Osaka. Most of the gates were packed with 737s and 777s! (I replaced all Prop traffic with 737s and 777s) And this is default traffic. Also, another plane was coming to land, one took off, and one was taxiing to take off.
