Dead links in "Resources" section[edit]

Looking at the project page for the first time, particularly interested in the "Resources" section at the bottom, I find:

* FAA Codes --> leads to page not found
* IATA member airlines --> page not found
* aerosite.net  --> godaddy domain parking page
* eurocontrol.int --> page not found error

Wingtip devices notability[edit]

I believe past consensus here has been that Wingtip devices (winglets / sharklets etc.) fitted to aircraft are not notable for mention in the fleet section of individual airline pages. The project guide states that:

"Other than the number of seats other information on the aircraft (for example engines fitted or Boeing customer codes) should not be included"

I would say that means wingtip devices are not notable, but perhaps we need to be more specific and state so. Several articles still make reference to winglets / sharklets being fitted, and the number of each type within a fleet with / without them, and some users maintain that it is notable information.

I remove such information whenever I see it, it's just fanboy cruft that the man-in-the-street would have no idea of what it means anyway. YSSYguy (talk) 12:16, 21 March 2015 (UTC)
Agree, remove it. This is not a fansite.--Jetstreamer Talk 13:05, 21 March 2015 (UTC)
Support the general view that they are not notable. MilborneOne (talk) 14:10, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, I took the liberty of updating the wording in the page content section to clarify the policy. SempreVolando (talk) 14:20, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

Mihin Lanka destinations[edit]

Kindly redirect this page as the table is too short and has been moved to main article. 139.190.230.234 (talk) 08:24, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

I have undone the copy-and-paste edits to put the list in the main article, but there are enough destinations to justify a separate list IMO. YSSYguy (talk) 11:21, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
Not completely sure the number of destinations warrants a stand-alone article.--Jetstreamer Talk 13:28, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
No worries, it is borderline. Feel free to boldly merge and redirect. Cheers YSSYguy (talk) 13:39, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
Let's wait for more opinions first.--Jetstreamer Talk 20:12, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

Please discuss this at Talk:Mihin Lanka destinations. I have bought it up there since it is a suggested merge. Citydude1017 (talk) 17:39, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

What is there to discuss? short list no need for separate article, all lists of less than 20 destinations should be in main article. 139.190.230.234 (talk) 20:07, 29 March 2015 (UTC)

Anyone in admin take note is deliberatly doing it again and again despite summary notes. 139.190.230.234 (talk) 15:30, 3 April 2015 (UTC)
I have already requested full protection, warned user, and reported him. Citydude1017 (talk) 18:07, 8 April 2015 (UTC)
I'v removed the flags and warned the user over a violation of MOS:FLAGS.--Jetstreamer Talk 22:33, 8 April 2015 (UTC)

User has been blocked for edit warring as he reverted Jetstreamer's edit and removed the warning at his talk page. Page has also been fully protected until 10 April 2015. 71.12.206.168 (talk) 04:14, 9 April 2015 (UTC)
