Legs filter by date or day of the week


Recommended Posts

Hello Pele, i´am using you great tool every day and i can´t even know how we could live without it. But there is a small improvement i would like to request. Is it somehow possible to filter or restrict the shown legs of an Airport by the current date or better a specific day of the week. When i´am looking for an actual flight by Lufthansa for instance outbounding EDDM i usually go to eddm and have look at the legs tab. Even i have restricted my search already to show only the flightplan for Lufthansa it would be nice if i could restrict the legs shown only for a specific day. 

If i want to know to where i could pilot a LH flight outbound from EDDM on Sunday arround 1700 UTC i allways have to scroll thru all legs from Monday to Sunday to find  one. Or is there another way?

 

You know it´s about to improve something what is already one of best of the best.

Hi Bernd and thanks for the kind words.

 

There is no direct method to filter results by day/time. If I personally was looking for such a flight I would press CTRL+A to open the search airport form and search for "EDDM" and press enter (or click it) to open the Airport Info form showing info for EDDM. Here I would go to the traffic tabpage and change "Traffic to chart" into "All flights to/from this airport". It will filter both what is displayed on both the "Legs" and "Traffic" tabpages to show all traffic into/out of EDDM no mater which leg search is otherwise active of which specific flightplan that might be displayed on the main map. Now when you go to the "Legs" tabpage you will see (top) all flights into EDDM and (bottom) all flights out of EDDM. These are sorted by Dest/Dep-time. So to find a flight arriving around 1700 UTC on a Sunday, I would first un-check "Show as Local-times" above the list-view, and then scroll down to SU/1700 (Sunday at 1700) and locate the flight you are looking for (they are sorted by the content of the "Dest.Time" column):

Just to add to my previous answer. In stead of choosing "All flights to/from this airport" on the traffic tabpage, you could begin using the Search Legs feature to only find all Lufthansa flights into/out of EDDM, as this would vastly reduce the number of legs shown in the Legs tab-sheet. Hence it would be faster to locate the flight you are looking for. Likewise if you also know where the flight is coming from and/or which aircraft is used, you can add these criteria to the Search Legs form to reduce the number of flights even more.

Hi Pelle, thank you for the hints, but that is how i´am already doing it. My search is filtered to Lufthansa and Eurowings only and for Flights in a range of 3 hours usualIy. But of course there are still a lot of flights shown outbound from German airports. I thought i could save to scroll thru the legs listing. Because i´am usually flying on Saturday and Sunday i allways have to scroll down very far on each airport to find the legs and allways i have to start again for each airport at the top of the list, because the listing is allways starting on monday. It´s just wish and something for a future release, if it´s technically possible may be. If not, it´s ok  also. But bear in mind, if someday you will read in the news that there was a skeleton found in germany with a pad in his hands running FlightplanVisualizer, it´s may be me, gone by while searching for my legs.

Merry Christmas to you and your Family

Bernd

Hi Bernd,

 

Technical there is nothing preventing a filter by weekday, but already the Search Legs page is near its limit as what can be displayed at once. So adding more criteria would probably result in having to split the view into multiple tab-pages. Which would result in the user not being able to see all criteria without looking at multiple tab-pages. Anyway I hear what you are saying, and will give it some more thoughts when time allows for it. Merry Christmas for all as well.
