This suggestion is as simple as my title. To add the ability to schedule flights for an aircraft that is being delivered and allow people to start booking flights for 3 days time.
This idea came up for me especially when leasing an aircraft that has long delivery times or a long order book, and i cant plan or play around with a schedule until the aircraft is delivered, which isnt accurate to real-life, where passangers can book flights on ‘new’ aircraft that hasnt yet been delivered to the airline. Furthermore, this helps minimise that 3 day activation period where the aircraft is just stuck not flying but costing my airline money. Why not create a schedule for the aircraft before it is delivered so that the moment it joins your fleet it can start flying, or wait 1 or 2 days before starting its schedule rather than 3.
Let me know what you think of the idea and if it could be implemented easily.
