Strikethrough Loads

Video Version

Strikethrough loads are loads where the cost is calculated on the basis of weight, but no actual weight will be carried on the aircraft, or loads that are actually carried on the aircraft, but for operational reasons (see below), are not desired to be counted as loading on a given flight leg.

There are several scenarios where the strikethrough function can be useful. Two examples are:

  • If your company has a minimum load fee, but the customer doesn’t actually meet the minimum load. You need to show that the excess income from the payment has been used, but no weight was actually flown.
  • If a load is dropped at a location other than the destination. The billing and statistics already show the load to the destination. The flight scheduler puts a No Charge payment load on a flight to give the pilot weight and destination information to move the load, but the weight is struck through so the load is not counted again in the statistics.

Strikethrough When Payment is Created

First create a load for what actually will be flying.

Next create a load with the difference between the actual load and the minimum load charge, and check the strikethrough box.

The cost of the second load will be added, but the weight will not be included in the load total.

In the case of a load needing to be carried again, create a new payment with no charge and strikethrough the load.

Strikethrough After the Payment is Created

Split the payment between what actually showed up, and the difference between what showed up and the minimum load.

Strikethrough the difference amount.
