Information: Most the following flights (at any of the following airports) are the actual operating flights and times at the creation of this event. Due to flight cancellations because of COVID-19, the website I was using to see scheduled flights did not show all flights, most of the eariler flights at the airports are for real though…
Instructions to request a gate are below the gates.
If a * is by any aircraft it means that I changed the aircraft because the aircraft used for the IRL flight does not have a livery in Infinite Flight.
All of the earlier routes below are the actual flights at the time of creation, it is prefered sign up for one of these, I understand if you want another flight though. To request of non-listed flight see below the gates on how to sign-up!
Please spawn in 15 or 20 minutes before departure time! Please pushback early or as on-schedule as you can as some flights are scheduled very close together. Thank you!

How to request a gate!

As you may have seen by now this is a 24 hour schedule with three (3) different airports! This could make it very difficult for me to determine what gate you are asking for. To help clear up the trouble please request a gate in the following fashion. Please quote the gate you want. Also in your post just in case please include the zulu time of the flight you want and what airport you are departing from. If you want to include other details feel free to!!! Thanks!
Is there a flight that you want but want a different destination? Well, feel free to ask for a change as long as the destination you want is an actual SFO route. You can ask for a change by locating a gate you want, quoting that gate (make sure to tell me airport that gate is at), and asking for a change of destinations. To find out what destinations these airports offer click on their names: KSFO, KSJC, KOAK
Cargo and FBOs! I decided not to put times and destinations on these gates. Feel free to choose any route for yourself. I’d appreciate it if it was a real route, but I will not enforce it like with the airlines. To request one of these gates just look for a gate you want by going to the Terminal information part of this topic and choose what gate you want. Then comment below in the following format: | Flight # | Aircraft | Departure time (in Zulu) | Gate | Destination |. Thanks!

Thanks for looking! If you would like to join please see above on how to request a gate!!

This is the main thread. Unfortunately there is a 32000 character topic limit so I will have to post 3 separate threads for this event…

Tell me what you think! I will link the other threads below.

KSJC Thread is up…

KOAK Thread is up…

KSFO Thread is up, due to character limits the gates are the first two comments in the thread…

Thanks! Enjoy the Event!

Why not just have all of this on one thread? Four topics seems a little excessive.

The total number of characters if I were to have 1 thread is about 84000, the limit is 32000. Since it is a 24 hour schedule, I have put a lot of work into this.
SFO is really the main problem. The gates for it are already over the limit, just the gates
