notes 
For any short notes, qualifications, annotations, etc pertaining to the infobox data, especially if indicated by e.g. superscripted lowercase letters (see example).

Notes

Revenue, operating income, net income, assets and equity 
You may include an indicator icon to indicate the direction of change compared to the previous fiscal year; to avoid confusion, place the indicator before the number. If no citable information is available for previous fiscal year data, please do not use an icon.
Indicator wikicodes
{{increase}} will display as Increase
{{steady}} will display as Steady
{{decrease}} will display as Decrease
Example: {{increase}} [[United States dollar|US$]]324 million <small>(''FY 2011'')</small> displays as: Increase US$324 million (FY 2011)
Losses 
A loss is expressed as a negative number in the form [[United States dollar|US$]]-128 million <small>(''FY 2011'')</small> which displays as US$-128 million (FY 2011)
Reports in currencies other than US dollars 
If the airline reports financial data in currency other than United States dollars, please substitute the appropriate currency indicator in place of [[United States Dollar|US$]]
Use [[Canadian Dollar|C$]], [[Euro|€]], [[Pound sterling|£]], etc.
Please report dollar figures in the infobox consistently
Use rounded millions or exact figures. Please avoid mixing styles.
Examples of rounded millions:
[[United States dollar|US$]]11,276 million <small>(''FY 2011'')</small>
[[United States dollar|US$]]324 million <small>(''FY 2011'')</small>
[[United States dollar|US$]].870 million <small>(''FY 2011'')</small>
Examples of exact figures:
[[United States dollar|US$]]11,276,367,880 <small>(''FY 2011'')</small>
[[United States dollar|US$]]324,008,131 <small>(''FY 2011'')</small>
[[United States dollar|US$]]870,218 <small>(''FY 2011'')</small>
Bases, hubs, secondary hubs, focus cities 
Where the total number of bases, hubs, secondary hubs and/ or focus cities for an airline is 10 or greater and listing all of them results in an excessively long infobox which disrupts the formatting of the rest of the article, consideration should be given to using collapsible lists for this section, for example at EasyJet and Ryanair.

Microformat

The HTML mark-up produced by this template includes an hCard microformat that makes an organization's details readily parsable by computer programs. This aids tasks such as the cataloguing of articles and maintenance of databases. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please visit the Microformat WikiProject.
Subtemplates
  • Use {{start date}} for the date on which an organisation was "established", "founded", "opened" or otherwise started, unless that date is before 1583 CE.
  • Use {{URL}} for an organisation's URL.
  • Use {{coord}} for coordinates associated with the organisation (e.g. the location of its headquarters). A Geo microformat will then make these coordinates parsable, e.g. for use in online mapping, downloading to a GPS unit, etc.

Please do not remove instances of these subtemplates.
