fleet lists[edit]

There appear to be three overlapping fleet lists in this article (infobox, top of "Fleet" section, and bottom of fleet section). these lists don't appear to match, and none of them have the B727s pictured at [1] and mentioned at http://www.nationaljet.com.au/profile.html. I can't find the right info, or I'd fix it. --Scott Davis Talk 23:51, 22 March 2007 (UTC)

I also found the fleet list makes no sense. Why is it divided into different sections? Does National Fleet own them all? There should be just one list of the aircraft that National Fleet has, to make it easier to understand. Maybe it could be stated after each aircraft model (in brackets) who it is operating for. Also, the "Surveillance Australia" section lists Q200 and Q300 aircraft which are not listed in the top section. Makes no sense. Plus, with the exception of the Q300, the aircraft listed are all no longer manufactured. Some are real vintage aircraft. Some aircraft, such as the 727, ceased production before the National Jet company was formed in 1989, so they must have acquired them second hand from somewhere. This company is the operator of some old and vintage aircraft! (hey, that should be in the first paragraph on the top of the page) What aircraft do they actually own? 203.217.64.50 22:31, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Njs.PNG[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Njs.PNG is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 15:57, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

Sounds like an advertisement[edit]

Was this page written by National Jet themselves? How about this line: "National Jet is the leading provider of contracted aerial passenger and freight services." What does "leading provider" mean? Does it mean it has the most passengers? Best service? Biggest profit? In the end, it is just meaningless advertising drivel. 203.217.64.50 22:09, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

this has been removed. Dormskirk (talk) 17:08, 16 March 2014 (UTC)

Sloppy writing[edit]

"is part of the Cobham Plc group in England."...What does this mean? Is it in some sort of alliance with Cobham in England? Or is National Jet a British owned company?

"It also provides specialist contract aviation services to government and large civil organisations and wet leasing of aircraft and crew including to Qantas under QantasLink." ...the bit about wet leasing doesn't list anyone other than Qantas, so how can it provide "crew including to Qantas" if there is noone else?

"Employing over 800 people, National Jet, through its various contracts, flies to over 50 destinations throughout Australasia." ...how do we know how many are employed? Are they employed by "National Jet" or are they employed by "various contracts", in which case they don't work for National Jet. Are the destinations relevant at all? If this is a "charter airline", as stated, then the destinations are those of the airlines that it contracts to, or whoever hires National Jet aircraft. Therefore, National Jet doesn't really have any destinations. 203.217.64.50 23:00, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

all these bits have now been removed. Dormskirk (talk) 17:11, 16 March 2014 (UTC)
