Another thing i observed and wanted to mention. In my opinion the planes taxiing on taxiways Mike and November that need to hold on Runway 2 hold way to close to the runway. 

This results in the wings of bigger planes strucking the noses of the holding planes. The hold points on this runway should be repositioned to make it look better and more realistic.

The issue with unrealistic or wrong holding points occurs on other airports as well, but i just saw it on LEBL again so i wanted to mention it!

 

Attached is a picture to see the stopping points of the planes:

I am putting together an email to Gabor for any updated SP for LEBL 're a similar thing I have noticed on the hold points on delta1 and echo1 for Rwy2 and where aircraft hold short of 25R on M so will add this to the email Jonas.

I'm not sure if this counts as a bug or not, but it seems like it takes some planes a VERY long time to determine a path after being given taxi instructions, especially if they are going from the northern terminals to 7R/25L.

Also, any DLH aircraft that exit 25R at R6 don't seem to accept directions from me, but they will find their own path if I tell them to simply taxi to the terminal.

You should include a copy of your log of an issue like this comes up.

I will do that the next time I run it. 🙂

@Pedantic G I think you're right. When you look at the info on BCN it says between 2300-0700 RWY 2 for arr & 7R for dep.

I tried using 2 for arr & 7L for dep but not enough time between arrivals to get them off 7L.

Hi Kev,

Spent many hours looking at LEBL set up when testing this for Gabor and they never use RWY 2 for take offs and hardly ever use RWY2 approach and 7L for take offs during the hours outside of 2300-0700, probably as you say that it is just too busy.

If you want to have some fun and a real challenge for LEBL try running it just using 25L or 7R, dependent on winds when you run it, for takeoff and landings during the 0700 to 2300 hours as Barcelona did in late November/early December 2018 whilst they did some maintenance on 25R/7L. In real life the average delay time was nearly an hour during most days!

Have tried this using my own accurate custom schedule based on a day in November I built for testing purposes and its gets a tad busy 😅

Tried testing this one this morning and every DLH flight I tried using 25R @ R6 and gave taxi instructions to follow worked fine for me so not sure what the issue is. As Joe says, will probably need to see a log to work this one out
