Should this be incorporated somewhere into this page?

On 21 February 1989, Tradewinds the Airline was born. When the airline first took to the skies, its focus was on serving an exotic array of holiday destinations around the region such as Pattaya, Phuket, Hatyai, Kuantan and Tioman. As the carrier matured, regional business destinations such as Jakarta, Phnom Penh and Yangon were added to its network, thereby broadening the airline's appeal beyond the holiday maker to include the business traveller.
On 01 April 1992, the carrier was re-named SILKAIR, representing its evolution from a holiday resort airline to one which caters to both business and leisure passengers. The company's Tours & Travel Division was restructured into a wholly-owned subsidiary of SILKAIR, and retained the name Tradewinds Tours & Travel Pte. Ltd.

The first 6 destinations at the launch of the airlines were the 5 listed above and Bandar Seri Begawan. The latter was an afternoon flight (and not the SQ182/181 morning flight/ returning noon) which was dropped after about a year in operation.

Partially from memory and partially from http://www.silkair.com/mbe/en_UK/content/corporate/heritage.jsp ... now how do I add a superscript to the page? --Novelty 08:26, 18 November 2006 (UTC)
There is a "superscript" button on the top of edit window. If that dosent show, insert the codes like this: <sup>your text</sup>. Hope this helps! :)--Huaiwei 09:14, 18 November 2006 (UTC)
I not dat stupid. I noe there's superscript, but notes are done differently. I copied the format from the MRT page. --Novelty 10:20, 18 November 2006 (UTC)
Er...you asked how to add a superscript, so I explained loh. Goodness knows why you take it so personally when I was merely trying to be helpful.--Huaiwei 10:26, 18 November 2006 (UTC)
Sorry, didn't mean to sound as if I took it personally. I was just pointing out that it wasn't what I was looking for. Thanks for the help though. --Novelty 11:28, 18 November 2006 (UTC)
Oh glad to hear that. Thanks for helping to highlight the situation pertaining to the flights to Brunei! ;)--Huaiwei 11:34, 18 November 2006 (UTC)

Boeing 737 order[edit]

Having a look at This Link Boeing intends to order 68 Boeing 737's. Just a note that this shouldn't be added to the fleet table until the order is firmed up. --JetBlast (talk) 10:58, 3 August 2012 (UTC)
