    Reverse flight plan

    Going from point A to point B with the CDU
    Once landed the plan seems to be flushed
    How do you reverse it to go back to point A without re-entering the data.

    I may be wrong here, but I don't think PM has implemented this feature, or at least I can't find it anywhere. 767 PIC has it I believe, but not PM as far as I know (else, they are really hiding it very well

    It wouldn't be a valid flight plan would it? The STAR used for approach couldn't then become a SID and likewise at the other end. I'd be very surprised if such a feature existed in PM and I'm surprised it does in any 'serious' CDU/FMC.

    Besides the fact that the majority of airways in Europe are one-way only except for the the really major airways like UL984 and such.

    VATSIM or IVAO would amend your FP every time. Then you end up reprogramming the FMS computer anyway.

    This is certainly not a re-life function. In real life, airlines flightplans are stored in the NAV databases or downloaded via ACARS.
    CDU Data is flushed when entering a new ORIGIN in the RTE page. (In B744 but not emplimented in PM)
