Apparently one of my aircraft got returned to the lessor last night as I hadn't got the money to pay him, not sure how it happened because I had checked before going to bed one hour before and I had the cash.
Anyway, How do I check which flights this aircraft had assigned to it so I can re-assign them to another aircraft?
1. go to Fleet Management and find the aircraft you want to put said flights on, then click the red scheduling icon.
2. to the right of flight number you will see [existing flight number...] click this
3. make sure your tick boxes are only clicked for irregular and never
4. use the pull down and look for flight numbers that are like this (9897 : Denver (Den)-Kansas City (MCI) _______ 0600)
I.E. 9897 being your flight #, from-to, _2___6_ days it is scheduled (being blank means nothing is flying said route) and 0600 being the departure time
I hope this helps not really sure if there is an easier way, but this is how I handle this
WIthout manually searching through your flight numbers for unused flights, there is no way. Sometimes even this doesnt work as I often have unused flight numbers which can make it impossible to tell what an aircraft schedule was.
Very annoying, as larger airlines can take hours to search through flight numbers!
If you had consecutive flight numbers on that aircraft try to search for unused consecutive flight numbers batch.
Or keep unused flights numbers in a special flight number group. That way any "new" unused flight number is easily recognizable.
