Air Canada flight 791 from Toronto to Los Angles using the 787-9 aircraft list a departure time of 13:00, the real world departure time is 0800. Can we use the real world time for the flight.

I realize that this is VUAL, and we should focus on flying United routes. However, that can quickly become repetitive which is why I was very thankful when the American Airlines routes were added a while back. I was able to quit my American virtual airline and focus on this one. However, given that variety is a good thing, and there is no current Hawaiian AIrlines virtual, is there any chance that some Hawaiian Airlines routes could be added?

Hawaiian, Aer Lingus, etc., is a topic that has been floating around for six years.

Our VA limits PIREP-able (word?) flights to United Airlines, United Express and its Star Alliance partners, expanding last year to include American Airlines.

Hawaiian et al are considered "partners" rather than Star Alliance members.

Please see viewtopic.php?f=45&t=8188&start=10#p37864 for some background on the decision.

Cheers

Would be nice to have a few more 737-800 flights speckled in here and there for us X Plane Zibo pilots ;-)

So is there any chance of ever allowing the "partner" flights listed on the page linked in that discussion? It is impossible to belong to a VA for every single carrier/livery one may want to fly in/out of various destinations around the world. Just my opinion, of course. Thanks for the reply as always, Kevin!

Guys, please read the first para on our home page:

"Virtual United Airlines is one of the most active and largest virtual airlines operating today. We offer up to 5300 daily flights to 374 airports, and with our Star Alliance partnership, that number increases to over 18,000 daily flights, 1300 airports, and a fleet of over 4,500 aircraft. If that is not enough, you can charter a flight between any two destinations using any aircraft in the United Airlines current or historic fleet. Our pilots can be based at one of our 9 hubs (KDEN, KEWR, KIAD, KIAH, KLAX, KORD, KSFO, and RJAA)."

No need to join a bunch of VAs; fly a charter between any pair of airports you choose.
