Proposed merge[edit]

Flightcase reads in part: The term flightcase is synonymous with road case and ATA case, but while road case is the more commonly used term in the United States, flightcase is the industry accepted word in Europe [1] so there seems no reason for separate articles.

Agree. I'd support the merge.Tubefurnace (talk) 22:20, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
Agreed. I think that someone looking for encyclopaedic information on this topic would not differentiate between a flight or road case and would want all the information available in one article. Indeed, it would make Wikipedia more concise to merge. A visitor may not know there's any difference anyway, and not look for the other article at all. Black Stripe (talk) 14 July 2013

OK, I'll do it over the next few days unless someone beats me to it. What I'm intending is that we have one article here at road case (and this its talk page), with a section on flight cases, and redirects here from flight case, flightcase, ATA case and roadcase (and to the talk page). There will also be redirects from ATA 300 and ATA Spec 300 but they may be better pointed to Airlines for America#ATA Spec 300: Specification for Packaging of Airline Supplies as one already does, but if so that section will link to this article anyway.
