Hi all, new to this, but so far enjoying. I have one question. I have started a schedule with a ERJ135 and have noticed that on the first day the flight has sold out very quick. Is there anyway of changing that aircraft to a larger aircraft (like the E170); so I can sell more seats, instead of deleting the flight schedule and starting again?
There are a lot of issues that go along with switching a flight to another type of airplane. You have to consider the speed of the aircraft, differing costs between the two types of aircraft, and other matters such as pilots, training, and maintenance.
If you think the flight could use more seats, why not lease another aircraft and schedule more flights along that route?
I could do that, I just didnt know if I could change the aircraft to a larger type for that flight. I could lease more aircraft, but think I have leased too many already lol. My first day doing this today, so I am still learning the ropes.
Already booked flights, sticks to the airplane. You cannot move 123 passengers from Amsterdam to Dubai tomorrow, to a larger plane - you have to assign the flight to a bigger plane, and then in 3 days, it will start being flown with a bigger capacity.
