Slow or even can't load any online map data, always stuck at loading when using either a320 or YSSY airport

Brief description of the issue:
As long as I enabled online data settings: BING DATA WORLD GRAPHICS and PHOTOGRAMMETRY in DATA settings, I couldn’t enter game for either airport YSSY or a320neo. Here is my trials:

a) [ONLINE DATA]a small aircraft, YSCB(canberra) or YMML etc. → good
b) [ONLINE DATA]a320neo, YSCB(canberra) or YMML etc. → STUCK!!!
c) [ONLINE DATA]a small aircraft, YSSY(Sydney Airport) → STUCK!!!
d) a320neo, YSSY(Sydney Airport) (turn off BING DATA WORLD GRAPHICS) → good

e) [ONLINE DATA]Training → Small aircraft-> good
f) [ONLINE DATA]Training → Airliner → STUCK!!!

So here is the thing, if I turn on data, either I use YSSY airport or a320neo, would stuck, and even I wait for hours (I tried a whole day, still stuck!!)
But if turn off BING DATA WORLD GRAPHICS everything works fine.
Or I avoid using a320neo or YSSY airport, it works too.

My guess is the data needed for a320neo or YSSY airport is much more than small aircraft or other smaller airports.

Another observation is that either in World Map or map in Settings/DATA/MAUNAL CACHE, it loaded abnormally.
In World Map it seems never load at all, while in MAUNAL CACHE, it can load a little bit, but very limited zoom level. when I zoom in(e.g. switch to High cache block option), it never loaded.

I am using a NBN in Sydney Australia, my network is more than good. And from my attachments, you can see the delay is quite acceptable.
So the question is why?? Can anyone help please. I’ve been “Playing” for 100+ hours, but never actually played a minute… :frowning:

Much appreciated!

[Stuck on the Loading Page after UK updates [FIXED: Bing Map Load issue due to system language]]

Awesome! it works for me!
It is such a stupid mistake of Microsoft… and it’s so frustrating…
I spent 150+ hours loading and experimenting with my fans running full-speed doing nothing…
The issue remains after the latest Paris update, while I can finally play around.
Ill raise a new bug for them telling them the trigger, hopefully they can fix it asap.
Thank you so much for the help! Cheers!
