Regarding 787 orders. Thanks a lot for making things clear, hope you don't mind that I undid your early revision, it's just so easy for orders to get counted twice or not enough etc..., best to be clear I always feel. keep up the good work, and I'll try to too!Olyus (talk) 18:25, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

Reliable sources[edit]

I have reverted your edits to Delta's LAX-GRU service on both airports articles because the source was the Airliners.net forums. Web forums are not considered reliable sources by Wikipedia standards and cannot be used to cite information on Wikipedia articles. If you can find a reliable source for this information, feel free to add it back. -- Hawaiian717 (talk) 18:58, 1 May 2009 (UTC)


MSFS Podcast Section[edit]

The Podcasts I added had nothing to do with advertising, they were simply ment to be informative. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Tofutwitch11 (talkcontribs) 19:05, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

I talked to the other person two, but like I said, they were not advertising. You could say that the Microsoft Flight Simulator Article is advertising if you wanted....just be a little practical. I know the rules. Thanks Tofutwitch11 (talk) 20:27, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

Also, if you read the section on wikipedia advertising, I did not brake any rules. I did not favor one podcast over the other. Niether cast requires any fee....I do not know anyone from either of these casts, and had no intent of advertising. Tofutwitch11 (talk) 20:30, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

Gare des Invalides[edit]

In regards to the Gare vs. Aerogare I found Commons:Category:Gare_des_Invalides - Someone before me had put a pic of the Aerogare in the category before I put some that I had taken myself. Should I move the aerogare pics to a new category? WhisperToMe (talk) 19:45, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

  • Ah, I see - that is a very interesting history! Sometime I could make another section at corporate affairs and describe the Aerogare building. WhisperToMe (talk) 16:52, 8 May 2010 (UTC)

Merci pour les corrections.

Pourtant, j'ai pas trouvé les chémas d'AirFrance sur leur site web. Normalement, je préfère utiliser les sources officiels, mais quand je l'ai pas, je fair ce que je peux.

Si vous avez quelques problèmes avec des sources en Russe, Polonais ou Italiens - n'hésitez pas me contacter - je vous aiderai avec plaisir.

Paris BVA[edit]

Paris has 3 major airports. Paris-Charles-de-Gaulle Paris-Orly and Paris-Beauvais. Even though BVA is 85km North of Pairs it is still part of the Pairs Airport System. The offical name of the airport has Paris in it's logo.

It is just like London-Luton, London-Gatwick, London-Luton, London-Heatorw, London-City & London-Southend. Even though they are closer to London.Jamie2k9 (talk) 22:51, 12 November 2010 (UTC)

  • I have added an exhaustive list for discussing the contentious airports here. Please contribute and provide any suggestions / additions etc. Thanks, jasepl (talk) 16:42, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

Continental to CDG-IAD[edit]

However, http://airlineroute.net/2011/02/12/uaco-s11-europe/ states that IAD-CDG and IAD-AMS will be operated by CO. I thnk it should appear on their website soon (i would give it a couple of days to let CO update the flight into their system). Snoozlepet (talk) 03:41, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

Flight is now bookable on both CO's and UA's website due to commence September 28th. Snoozlepet (talk) 17:10, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

EasyJet fleet[edit]

Regarding the fleet details in the EasyJet article, please note that the fleet table (or indeed any referenced information on a Wikipedia page) must match the quoted reference. The CAA database will be updated in time, usually quite quickly, and then the page can be updated. Otherwise you must provide a new reliable source. Please discuss before changing. Thanks. SempreVolando (talk) 12:52, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

Sorry for over-writing your edits to the orders column per Airbus O&D, missed that. The CAA reference though is still the best authoritative fleet source for UK airline articles and is far preferred over the references you provided which are very useful, but nonetheless unofficial. It's also the reason we use the official Irish fleet database as a fleet source for the Ryanair article, despite it being updated far less frequently than the CAA one (which is updated daily on weekdays). I have no problem with including the basic fleet of EasyJet Switzerland in the text split between A319 and A320 types, but have amended the wording to make it clear these aircraft are in addition to the EasyJet fleet as I think the current sentence suggests they are included in the table which is not that case. Also I have reintroduced the reference, which is required. Thanks. SempreVolando (talk) 20:01, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

City of Derry Airport[edit]

Please do not continue to revert it's name to "Prestwick", every airport that flies to it has it's destination as Glasgow - Prestwick. That's over 25 destinations and would be contested if you tried to edit them. The very fact that you contest it only on the City of Derry Airport is pointy to say the least.

If you revert again you will be in violation of 3RR.

Many thanks

Delta operating flights between Paris and Seattle[edit]

Do you know if DL is operating flights between CDG and SEA on March 24th? Couldn't find any DL operated flights after March 24 on Delta's website (only show flights operated by Air France). Snoozlepet (talk) 04:15, 5 November 2011 (UTC)

Flights are now on Delta.com....but will this flight be seasonal to replace AF temporarily or is DL flying this route from now on replacing AF for good? Snoozlepet (talk) 15:13, 12 November 2011 (UTC)

Paris CDG cargo traffic[edit]

According to official data from Fraport (http://www.fraport.com/content/fraport-ag/en/press_center/news_releases/Fraport-Traffic-Figures-December-Full-Year-2011-FRA-Achieves-New-Passenger-Records.html) the Frankfurt airport had more cargo traffic than Paris CDG on 2011.

As the ACI haven't published the data of 2011 yet the information on World's busiest airports by cargo traffic is not updated yet.

So I have changed the information about cargo traffic in Paris CDG according to the official data from both airports. Vatse (talk) 12:46, 7 June 2012 (UTC)

China Eastern flights between Dalian and Paris[edit]

A user insists that china eastern operates flights between Dalian and Paris. After checking their website, it operates under the same flight number same plane but the flight passes thru a domestic hub as per WP:Airports we can't list such flights. I am not sure. Regards!

Iceland Express[edit]

Iceland Express was not acquired by WOW air - in the sense that it continues to operate with WOW air as its parent company. It sold all its airline operations to WOW air but the company itself will not remain an airline and you will not see Iceland Express-marked aeroplanes from now on. The company will though continue to exist until it has negotiated with its creditors. Maybe it's not completely clear, given the fact that you can still book flights on the Iceland Express website, but if you can read Icelandic you will be further informed.[1][2] Stefán Örvarr Sigmundsson (talk) 22:29, 23 October 2012 (UTC)

Delta at Portland[edit]

I finally took a look at the alleged PDF schedule. Wow. How can anyone be that stupid? Clearly labeled were (1) It only happened between January 2 and January 5, (2) Stop: 1, (3) flight number repeats right above "Paris" in "New York JFK", (4) aircraft: 73H, and (5) it takes 17 hours. Keep watching it closely. If this continues I'll get a knowledgeable admin to protect this article. HkCaGu (talk) 04:02, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

November 2015[edit]

Information icon Please do not add or change content, as you did at Royal Air Maroc destinations, without citing a reliable source. Please review the guidelines at Wikipedia:Citing sources and take this opportunity to add references to the article. Thank you. Jetstreamer Talk 13:29, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

Regarding edits like this one [1], I suggest you to read WP:AIRPORT-CONTENT for the addition of future flights and cancellations of current services. All this information require reliable sources.--Jetstreamer Talk 13:46, 29 November 2015 (UTC)
@Jetstreamer: Since airlines don't always make announcements about new and cancelled routes, how do you source that exactly? New routes are available in the booking system of the airline, canceled routes are removed from the booking system of the airlines, but there's no way to reference directly into the airlines booking system. Also regarding this change, as my edit summary said, I just did some clean up: if you believe the terminal change was not accurate, remove it, don't just cancel my clean up of the article. And if you believe you can find sources for some edits, please add them. Mass reverting is not a constructive way of working together. Slasher-fun (talk) 08:49, 30 November 2015 (UTC)
It's not me the one that should find sources for your edits. See WP:BURDEN, and most importantly WP:VERIFY.--Jetstreamer Talk 20:38, 30 November 2015 (UTC)
It's more than clear that all you want to do is to push you preferred version of the matter through warring. I have started a thread regarding your behaviour at WT:AIRPORTS.--Jetstreamer Talk 20:48, 30 November 2015 (UTC)
Wait @Jetstreamer:, could you remind me who started by mass reverting all my edits, and who refused to help finding linkable sources for actually verifiable information?... Slasher-fun (talk) 20:57, 30 November 2015 (UTC)
As I said above, it's you the one that should provide sources for your changes. I see you didn't bother in reading WP:BURDEN. I will continue with this at WT:AIRPORTS.--Jetstreamer Talk 20:59, 30 November 2015 (UTC)
@Jetstreamer: So then, why do you sometimes look for and add a ref, sometimes just ask for a source, and sometimes... well just mass revert? What's your logic? Should we start removing every unsourced statement on WP? Slasher-fun (talk) 21:10, 30 November 2015 (UTC)

So I kindly ask you to add a source next new flights, to show readers and other editors that what you added is true.

Air India Flight 173[edit]

Sorry, but I don't really think that orthodromic distance was anywhere in question before AI 173. The only thing that matters is the distance that the flight travels, and not the direct distance between 2 cities. Several examples:

1. In record flights, PIA flight should also not be there, as the direct distance was much smaller than 21000 km.

2. For QF-8 the direct distance is 8,024 miles but in the list, it's listed as 8,578 miles which is the route that it takes.

3. Similarly, for all the flights the distance is slightly more than perpendicular distance, but the actual distance that flight takes is considered. In cases of other flights, this is near the perpendicular distance but in case of AI 173, the actual distance is much more (over 15,100 KM or 2400 KM more than direct distance).

(Sorry for sounding a bit rude) but the word orthodromic was not in the article before yesterday, and it should not be there now either.

Therefore, I have reverted your edit. Thanks!

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:History/Non-stop_flight

Anshabhi (talk) 03:24, 19 October 2016 (UTC)
Hi @Anshabhi:
1. There is no PIA flight in the top-30 list
2. QF8 orthodromic distance is 8578 miles
3. There is no way to determine the exact real distance of a flight, as the flight path changes every day depending on the weather/wind.
All flights are currently listed according to their orthodromic distance, I was just expliciting that.
Please acknowledge those facts so that your changes can be reverted. Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions.
Slasher-fun (talk) 09:20, 19 October 2016 (UTC)

Hi @Slasher-fun:, Please see my reply on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Non-stop_flight?markasread=90495332#Flights_and_orthodromic.2Freal_distance

Hi @Slasher-fun:, I see that a lot of Air India entries have been removed from the longest non-stop flight page. I can also see that you have taken great circle distance or orthodromic distance, a theoretical figure, as the standard for measuring flight length. Please provide a reliable source, it could be any individual or organization related to civil aviation and recognized worldwide, that could state in writing that the actual distance covered by a flight does not matter. I have gone through your entries on the talk page and (respectfully) disagree with all of them. We cannot be accounting for world records based on theoretical values. If we must use the great circle distance, then can we also measure the length of certain historical flights like "Solar Impulse" by their orthodromic distance? Please be unbiased and objective in your approach. The removal of AI 173 is uncalled for. Please reconsider your edits and reverts of users who listed AI 173 as the longest flight. 202.142.121.173 (talk) 17:53, 7 November 2016 (UTC)

Hi @202.142.121.173:. The page Non-stop flight list the longest commercial flights according to their orthodromic distance. I did not decide that on myself, the Wikipedia community of contributors did. Why? I see two main reasons: the orthodromic distance doesn't change over the time, while the actual distance flown changes at every flight, and people fly to travel from A to B, two places separated by a certain distance, they don't fly to travel a certain actual flown distance. Don't hesitate to add your views on Talk:Non-stop flight as other contributors would gladly explain their own point of view. Slasher-fun (talk) 19:19, 7 November 2016 (UTC)

Longest train services article[edit]

Hi! Im FlyingScotsman72 and I undid when you took away the information about the the longest train from Moscow to Pyongyang. I made the decision to undo your edit because that is officially the longest passanger train journey without changing trains. http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/world-records/longest-train-journey-without-changing-trains

I can understand why you would not want it to be in the top table because it goes between two countrys BUT, where do I put it if its between two countrys and the longest in the world? Please reply!

P.S Also, one of the points of wikipedia is that people can come on here to find information quickly. By having the Official longest train at the top of the page means people who come to that article for that information will be able to find it quickly! --FlyingScotsman72 (talk) 15:52, 19 October 2016 (UTC) @FlyingScotsman72:Hi! If you look at the russian timetable, this train is actually not a train, but a single car that is carried first with the Moscow-Vladivostok train to Ussuriysk (you may notice those two trains have the same number), then to Tumangan, where it stays 7 hours before finally reaching North Korea with the Tumangan-Pyongyang train. So to me, it does not constitute a non-stop train, but rather a non-stop car through different trains. Slasher-fun (talk) 17:54, 19 October 2016 (UTC)

@Slasher-fun: Thank you for replying! I already knew that it was only a single carriage which continues to Pyongyang but I still think that it does constitute the title of the longest train in the world, but that is just my opinion. FlyingScotsman72 (talk) 14:48, 20 October 2016 (UTC)

@FlyingScotsman72: Well I guess we should bring that up on the article disscussion page, and see what other contributors think about it :) Slasher-fun (talk) 15:42, 20 October 2016 (UTC)

@Slasher-fun: I agree with you completely! FlyingScotsman72 (talk) 10:39, 21 October 2016 (UTC)

@ScrapIronIV: Wow wow wow, "copyrighted material" to talk about the new name of an airline sounds a bit exagerated, don't you think? :) Let's calm down a bit, a tell me exactly what the problem is, instead of reverting every edit within seconds :) Slasher-fun (talk) 07:04, 20 September 2017 (UTC)
The copyright issue was with the logo, which was a direct download from the TAP site without a fair use rationale. As for the name change, unless it has been announced and has a citation (not an "example of use on their website") then it should not be changed here. There was an official change of name in 2005, press release, the whole nine yards. Wikipedia cannot make such a name change on our own without a source to counter it.

@ScrapIronIV: The logo was on Commons, I used it from there. If you think it shouldn't be on Commons (the uploader says it is not original enough to be copyrighted, I'm not expert enough to have an opinion about that), you should tell that to the person who uploaded it on Commons. As for a source for the new name, would this post on TAP's Facebook page be enough for you? Slasher-fun (talk) 16:14, 20 September 2017 (UTC)
