Requirements for Accident/Incident Inclusion - Aviation Safety may be too limited as an exclusive source[edit]

I discovered this incident, where a door seal failed at altitude forcing an Emergency Landing to avoid possible slow decompression. https://reports.aviation-safety.net/2014/20140106_A380_9V-SKE.pdf The worrisome point is that the plane was flown again (return leg) after a cabin door was excessively noisy, because no cause could be immediately found. The noise re-occurred and became extremely loud, and finally cabin air began escaping through the door, prompting an Emergency Diversion. Cabin doors had already been modified to attempt to resolve a crack problem, but still were insufficiently robust. Dfoofnik (talk) 08:36, 16 May 2017 (UTC) (Dfoofnik)

Thanks. I'd take a look at WP:AIRCRASH - it lays out some guidelines on what makes an incident significant enough to be included in an article. Based on the info provided, I don't think this incident meets those guidelines. Cheers! Skyraider1 (talk) 16:12, 16 May 2017 (UTC)

Air Force One under "operators"[edit]

Hello! Under the "Operators" heading is a paragraph explaining that the A380 was briefly considered as an "Air Force One" for the United States. Since Airbus/EADS never bid for the contract, having this info under the "operators" section makes no sense- the USAF was never close to being an operator. Is there a more appropriate section for this info? Cheers! Skyraider1 (talk) 00:35, 17 June 2017 (UTC)

Good point. I moved the subsection under Variants instead. --Finlayson (talk) 15:34, 17 June 2017 (UTC)
I moved it from =Market= because 2 planes won't make or break a market, and didn't know where to put it, so it went to =operators= given the usaf was a potential operator. =variants= isn't great either, even if there was modifications, the main point is the potential sale, so i moved it again in =Orders and deliveries=. --Marc Lacoste (talk) 12:43, 18 June 2017 (UTC)
I didn't see good reason(s) for it to be under Operators either; there is/was no connection to current or future operators that I can see. So I moved the single paragraph to be under Development. I don't think there is enough info to need a separate subsection also. Any better ideas on this? --Finlayson (talk) 15:24, 18 June 2017 (UTC)
It wasn't in Operators, but in =Orders= as the main point was the potential order, not the tech devlpmt. =Dev= isn't well suited. --Marc Lacoste (talk) 15:40, 18 June 2017 (UTC)
See this previous version of article that I edited here. It was a proposed variant/version too, but that wasn't right or good enough either. --Finlayson (talk) 15:50, 18 June 2017 (UTC)

A380neo to A380plus[edit]

If the A380neo is not in issue anymore, then maybe it would make sense if the A380plus gets its own heading. Furthermore, it could be more emphasized, that the neo variant is discarded. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Da Vinci Nanjing (talkcontribs) 17:34, 18 June 2017 (UTC)
