To clarify, if you download a flightplan, and the extension is .pln, then use (http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=fs2004util&DLID=35385) to convert the flightplan to .rte format(the PMDG FMC format). Then, once the flightplans are in .rte format(you may have downloaded the flightplans in .rte format, if that is the case then skip the above step), move the .rte plans to the {FSdir}PMDGflightplans directory. In FS, to load up the plan you need to enter the flightplan filename, minus the .rte extension, on the RTE PAGE, then LSK it to the COROUTE line. Basically, if you have a flightplan named EGLLKLAX001.rte, enter EGLLKLAX001 and LSK it to 3L(I think it is 3L)
