Schedule Times, Schedule Bidding

Post by UAL672 Paul Dasilva » Jul 25th, '17, 22:30

Hello, I searched for answers for my topic, but couldn't find any, I'm hoping someone can help. On the schedule page, do you have to follow the times as stated on schedule, example if the flight shows UA#### KEWR-KMCO 9:00 11:30 , does it mean I must follow a departure time of 9:00? The reason I ask is because I plan on doing the 757 ops tour, but I noticed all the times are the same, a 8:00 departure and a 12:00 arrival, regardless of the distance of the flight.

My second question is about bidding. If the route shows that it has been bid on, does that mean I cannot bid in it and fly it? Despite the route showing its been bid on, it allows me to bid and view it in my pilot center page. Thank you for any info provided.

Paul,

You can make the flight at what ever time you want to or you can change your sim time to the time that is shown on the schedule.

The system will allow you to book a flight that shows it has already been bid on.

Thanks for the reply Mr. Elia. Eric is correct. Times are just place holders. The system will not restrict additional bids on flights.
