A barnstar for you![edit]

Halfstar Hires.png The Half Barnstar
This is the barnstar that better fits into the message I wanted to deliver to you. I award you this for your recent edits to Qatar Airways, specially for eventually making me note that I was wrong. You deserve three-quarters of the credit, not just the half of it.Jetstreamer Talk 13:27, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

Use of "American"[edit]

Just for future reference... Your comment to your edit to American Airlines fleet leads me to believe you misunderstand the use of the word "American". In most usages, "American" refers only to the United States of America. That is what the user that added the word meant. HuffTheWeevil / talk / contribs 15:19, 4 November 2014 (UTC)

Boeing 777X[edit]

Information.svg Hello. I came by to personally tell you that the column you removed from the Boeing 777X firm orders table has been readded. I do not remember seeing a consensus met about not adding the flag icon, or country name. I am not saying your edit was incorrect, but there is a discussion started at the article’s talk page whether there was a consensus met. Please join the discussion. If you have any questions, leave a message at my talk page. Thank you and Happy Holidays! --PilotJaguar1996 (talk) 20:04, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

IndiGo fleet[edit]

Hi, you reverted some un-sourced contribution made by the other user, that is fine. But you mentioned me responsible for edits without proper reference, which is untrue. check out the IndiGo histroy and u will find that my last edit on 21:07, 3 April 2015, exactly similar to your latest  :edit on fleet data. So from next time onward check your fact before blaming someone like me who edits with full responsibility. M.soumen (talk) 7:17, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi, you probably misunderstood the edit summary (which is by the way autogenerated by Twinkle anyway, so I didn't really write it), it is not blaming you for anything. It just says that all the changes after your last one were reverted. SideshowBob7 (talk) 18:55, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

EVA Air[edit]

Please read edit summaries properly, and check revision history carefully as well - you will soon see that I did not revert edits after your first correction. Yny501 (talk) 11:12, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

Who speaks of reverting Yny501? You made an unsourced (and wrong) change at 02:43, 20 June 2015. This is why I gave you the warning on your talk page‎. SideshowBob7 (talk) 18:05, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

Read the revision history - you'll see that the edit you're referring to isn't made by me. It seems that others have had issues with this as well previously, judging by the comments above. I understand that you may have a pet peeve with firm order/MOU confusion issues, but don't just implicate everyone involved in the issue, but rather seek out individuals who make mistake multiple times. Yny501 (talk) 04:18, 22 June 2015 (UTC)

I did check the revision history it says: "02:43, 20 June 2015‎ Yny501 (talk | contribs)‎ . . (70,749 bytes) (+238)" So it was either you who made that unsourced change (for the 2nd time) or somebody else, using your account. However I admit that your other changes that got reverted with this one were constructive, so I will try to restore them. SideshowBob7 (talk) 12:51, 22 June 2015 (UTC)

Emirates Fleet[edit]

May I ask why you reverted my edits? I provided a visually attractive and well-organized gallery to present the various elements of the Emirates fleet to the reader. As you can see, I have done the same for: Delta, United, American, and Air France, with no objections. Your reversion to an earlier edit may have unintentionally undone my edits. Spartan7W § 15:49, 8 August 2015 (UTC)

As per WP's image policies, which state in part " the use of a gallery section may be appropriate in some Wikipedia articles if a collection of images can illustrate aspects of a subject that cannot be easily or adequately described by text or individual images. The images in the gallery collectively must have encyclopedic value and add to the reader's understanding of the subject." You didn't provide reasons why a gallery does meet those requirementsSideshowBob7 (talk) 01:39, 9 August 2015 (UTC)

So completely remove it? How about WP:BOLD? Tell me, what is wrong with what I did? How does it harm the article? How does organizing photographs into a clean space harm the value of this article? 96.39.226.99 (talk) 04:08, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
Wikipedia is not an image repository if a gallery doesn't add any encyclopedic value to an article it shouldn't be included. One rule of thumb to consider: if, due to its content, such a gallery would only lend itself to a title along the lines of "Gallery" or "Images of [insert article title]", as opposed to a more descriptive title, the gallery should either be revamped or moved to the Commons. Please read the Image galleries section of Wikipedia:Image use policy for further information. SideshowBob7 (talk) 18:41, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

A321LR[edit]

Go On Norwegians Facebook page and you will see that NAX have ordered A321LR and not the NEO... NEO is a fuel efficient one and LR is Long Range Aviationexpert (talk) 10:58, 15 July 2016 (UTC)

Facebook is not a reliable source! But since you Adressed me in a civilized manner this time I'll try to explain my point: A321 LR is just a Marketing Name for a higher Weight Version of the A321neo, so every A321LR is an A321neo as well. But you provided a Link to the current engine A321 which has nothing to do with the LR SideshowBob7 (talk) 23:48, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
