This article has more links to that carbon site than real information —Preceding unsigned comment added by Apete2 (talkcontribs)

The article's purpose is to define the duration of flights and record the classification. Perhaps you will be so kind as to find some other definitions other than 'that carbon site' which has so far proven to be a good source for providing this information. Oliverwk 22:12, 25 September 2007 (UTC)
Although one could argue that has useful information, it is a site that exists primarily to sell products and services. This is clear from the links to shopping pages and the "Gift Ideas" section at the bottom of its home page. Wikipedia:External links#Links normally to be avoided part 5 specifically discourages this. --Explodicle (talk) 17:47, 27 November 2007 (UTC)
Part five of Wikipedia:External links#Links normally to be avoided would also reffer to Thomas Cook airlines which also is selling products and services. Due to the illusive nature of these definitions it is not unacceptable to use only one source for all definitions as many provide conflicting opinions. There doesn't seem to be any Governmental website that defines flight duration. If someone does come across such a document please feel free to remove the Thomas Cook airlines and Carbon footprint website definitions.  Oliverwk  talk 20:05, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

Flight length between specific destinations[edit]

I want to know the distance between Texas and London(uk) in km. Maybe this article could have a table of flight distances between major world cities.

...failing that. Anyone know of another website, with that info?? -- Harry Wood 12:37, 8 February 2007 (UTC

Obvious Propaganda[edit]

these descriptions of stage lengths this page needs further discussion

This is rather an ambiguous statement with a conclusion but no reason. Would the contributor please elaborate on what is meant by the comment.  Oliverwk  talk 20:06, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

Definition appears to be wrong[edit]

"In aviation, the flight length is defined as the time airborne during a flight." Should flight length be measured in distance (km or miles) instead of time (hours)? They are exchangeable only if all planes fly at exactly the same speed. Also it would help to make clear whether this is for the actual distance traveled (instead of planned route or great circle distance). — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:48, 31 January 2014 (UTC)
