julie just telling you how avoid making errors interpretation.  if prefer get wrong answers, have at it.  if want get credited response, then do what julie telling you.  julie not really care if you make it law school, as your personality seem better suited writing parking tickets.

you confusing "respect" for lsat with competence in taking lsat.  no one arguing test language sometimes arguably ambitious.  what you being told is how resolve such ambiguities--on analytical reasoning, anyway.

julie not interested discussing why particular answer on particular problem right;  hold your own male private part.

I see Julie is having trouble following the thread. Let me remind you Julie...
when one interpretation of rules lead nowhere and simpler interpretation lead somewhere, choice obvious.
I believe your point is a practical one. You aren't attempting so much as to justify the game rather you are dispensing practical advice for success on the exam. On that I will obviously agree with you, if I was solving this game on my graded test, I would hope I realize as early as possible that given the provided rule set the game is impossible and apply the additional rule on my own to solve the game.
Now, before the test, I seek to improve my test taking abilities by understanding why the correct answers are correct. In this instance it required understanding why it seems, in this game, that  the pilots and co-pilots can only fly in one plane each. So, after trying on my own, I turned to LSD for some suggestions and all I seem to get is Julie's incessant insistence that one should just solve the game in the manner that gets the most credited answers! Well, thank you for that Julie. Now may we please move on to figuring out what's the best way to determine how to solve a game when one doesn't have an answer key in front of them? Please?

P.S. I don't know if you are familiar with the phenomenon, but often times the test makers include possible answer choices that follow an incorrect interpretation of the rules. So it is possible to make a mistake in applying the rules and still have 'correct' options in each question. Therefore, it's important to understand the rules independently of the answer key and answer choices Julie, ok?

I remember this game: I found it difficult. It seemed the explanation of the rules was not very clear and perhaps ambiguous. I haven't carefully re-reviewed or reconsidered it though. You could probably contact LSAC and get feedback (they have a department for challenges to LSAT questions, but I'm not sure if they will address previous tests).

I hope you resolved this before today's test, but FYI, whenever it seems like no answer is right or all answers are right, start back from scratch because the bottom line rule in every section is ONE answer is RIGHT and FOUR answers are WRONG.  Two might be good fits with what the question is asking, but one of them is a better fit than the other and therefore one is right and the other is wrong.

That keeps it simple because there are no two answers to any question on these tests.

You should have the answer key to the question you are asking about anyway, go look at the right answer according to the LSAC and then think what situation makes that the right answer.  I am not so good with the reverse analysis but once I get it wrong I know however I was thinking to get to that answer, stop thinking that way.
