What’s your alternative, BT? I’d think you’d have to drop down to manual deletion of a few bad maps (that disappear anyway on the next IFR flight). That could be just as confusing as you’d get postings asking why there isn’t a map with flight ‘XYZ’.
Further, if you manually delete bad maps, why shouldn’t I argue that you should manually delete confusing flight plan entries? If you happened to read one of my comments on a different topic, you’d see that I was confused by four ‘scheduled’ flight plans from PHNL to KOAK that had identical times for departure and arrival. How do you fly four flight plans from A to B? Perhaps I could make a case that they ought to not be shown because they only confuse users. mduell says, however, that they’ll be gone in a day or so anyway.
Aren’t my extraneous flight plans comparable to your bad maps?
I still say FA should post all the data it gets, incomplete and confusing or not. With a little time and thought, it’s not that hard to figure out what was going on. Viewing FA without potentially confusing data is like eating a sandwich without the bread crusts. Some people will like it that way, but for others it removes a lot of food for thought.
Maybe we just agree to disagree on this, BT?
