I think there should be three articles: Steponas Darius, Stasys Girenas and modified current article with details about their flight (possibly renamed to "transatlantic flight of Darius and Girenas" or something). Similar thing is with Alcock and Brown. Pibwl 2 July 2005 14:42 (UTC)

Agreed this should be merged into one article!!![edit]

Topic mismatch[edit]

The article is clearly not about the pilots but about the airplane, flight and the reasons of the crash. I think it should be just renamed into Lituanica, as is done in the Lithuanian version. Audriusa 21:42, 11 December 2005 (UTC)

i disagree, in order to know about the plane you have to know who felew it, and if they were experenced. like what if the pilots had no expereance, they would have crashed, so knowing about pilots experece tells me that it wasent becasue of expereance

Lithuanian-American, or American with lithuanian descent?[edit]

Darius and Girėnas were both born in Lithuania and migrated to USA with their families. That means they were lithuanians (although they got United State's cityzenship), and not american with lithuanian descent. I edited the item. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 82.84.0.80 (talk) 15:49, 16 February 2007 (UTC).

They are not AMERICAN, THEY ARE LITHUANIAN.

Lituanica supermarkets?[edit]

I came here expecting an article about the chain of supermarkets which specialises in goods from eastern Europe and has numerous stores across the UK and other countries. There doesn't seem to be such an article which is surprising because of the size of the company.--109.113.28.121 (talk) 20:16, 26 March 2012 (UTC)

Because a chain of supermarkets is clearly much more relevant and important than historic transatlantic flight. /s — Preceding unsigned comment added by 193.219.87.28 (talk) 13:07, 5 June 2014 (UTC)
