I just got an idea. I have heard many people say they cannot do a long haul flight because it to long and they don’t have time. I know this is stupid and might not work but maybe if there was some way we could pause are flight, and then there could be some button which says sleep or snooze. Then It would say do you want to save your flight if you press yes, then your plane will go off the radar and sign off. Then say the next day you go to your saved flights menu and you click on that flight and it brings you back to that same exact location and you could continue your flight.
Another way this could help is for people for instance say a pilot flew JFK TO Orlando and parked at a gate. Maybe they might want to make a return flight back to JFK but not sure what gate they parked at. With save your flight you could save your flight after you land and parked at your gate. Then the next day you could go to saved flights and pick that flight to make a return flight. This would make it more realistic and fun.
Sorry if this doesn’t make any sense and I apologize if this is a duplicate . Have a nice day :)
