RE: FS2002 Time Zones

9V-SVE,

that would be cool if you could somehow remember the site where you got that update from, I have checked flightsim.com and avsim.com but no luck.
Maybe anyone else can remember that link?

Cheers,

Anyone else encounterung this problem? Its just dumb, you dont really kn...

RE: Qantas And Air NZ Ready To Partner.

RE: QF 747 To Longreach Museum Time

Is the writing "LONGREACH" on the front of their 744s related to this place? Or do they all have the same name?  Wink/being sarcastic
Whats the deal?

RE: Qantas And Air NZ Ready To Partner.

If Qantas and Air NZ joined forces, there would have to be another domestic NZ carrier, wouldnt there? so theres a market for Origin Pacific, or possibly even Virgin Blue. Qantas and Origin would of course have to terminate their cooperation. I am hoping that Air NZ will remain in Star Alliance, whi...

RE: Your FS Most Flown Routes?

Do you all fly the long-haul flights real time or do you use a higher simulation rate? I really dont know what I prefer, I suppose real time is more real and therefore better, but sometimes I just dont have enough time to do it real time.
I fly AKL-LAX rtn quite often (Air NZ 744).

I think Innsbruck Airport in Austria is quite hard too, its nestled right in a valley in the Alps. And their ILS is misleading too, you cant follow it down all the way but have to turn a wee bit just before touch down! Big grin

LH Flight Numbers Question

Why does LH use flight numbers from 400-799 for their long-haul flights? Why don't they use the prestigious 001 for a flight like FRA-JFK? Instead they are using the low flight numbers for domestic flights.
Anybody know the reasoning behind this?
