Aviation Forum Lounge

Welcome to the Aviation Forum!

This forum consists of the following types of threads:
  • City Airports
    Denoted with the airport(s) IATA code, followed by the name or the city area (for a collection of city airports).

    Example: YYZ/YTZ | Toronto Area Airports
    Example: YVR | Vancouver International Airport
  • Airline Carriers
    Denoted with the airline(s) IATA code, followed by the carrier name. Some Airline Carrier threads are single airline carriers, some are categorized based on a collection of airlines from one country, and some are categorized based on airlines owned by one larger company. Use the forum's search tool to find your airline using the carrier's IATA code.

    Note that member airlines of an alliance will have a symbol denoting the alliance. * is for Star Alliance, ™ is for Skyteam, and ° is for oneworld.

    Example: AB | Air Berlin
    Example: CX°/KA°/LD | Swire Group: Cathay Pacific/Dragonair/Air Hong Kong
    KE™/OZ* | Korea-Based Carriers: Korean Air/Asiana
  • Airline Alliances
    Airline Alliances also have its own thread for news related to the alliance. * is for Star Alliance, ™ is for Skyteam, and ° is for oneworld.

    Example: ONEWORLD° | News & Discussion
  • Airplane Manufacturers
    Discussion of airplane manufacturers have its own thread, and some specific models also have its own thread.

    Example: BOEING | General News & Discussion
    Example: AIRBUS | A380 News & Discussion

Good idea, suggest also:

1. Aircraft threads

XXXX | Aircraft Name Here (where XXXX denotes the aircraft type)

eg Boeing 787 becomes:
B787 | Boeing 787
and Airbus A380 The big bird of the world !! becomes:
A380 | Airbus A380

2. Country Aviation threads

XX | Country (where XX denotes the country code)

eg Korean Aviation News becomes:
KO | Korean Aviation
eg Australia Aviation becomes:
AU | Australian Aviation

(i could build a thread finder for these threads - as a reply to the thread finder).

3. Remember some popular airline threads may be in a continental furum
eg Continental Forums > OZScrapers > Urban Spaces > Transportation :

#Airlines: QANTAS & Jetstar
#Airlines: Virgin Blue

Great idea with the clean up here!!! Finally!!!

I´m sure there are many interested users out there but they don´t post here because of the mayhem.

It would be awesome if the railway- and the bridge sections would get a clean up, too.

Flight reports can have their own code, such as
REPORT | HKG-ICN

Great ideas. Keep them coming. With regards to country aviation threads, I think we need to find a way to differentiate them from the airline threads a little more. I'll think about that one.

Edit: To confine what OZScrapers/Oceanic region has done to their airline threads, all airline threads begin with a "#" before the IATA code. See thread finder for more information and list of examples.

Edit 2: Updated first post. What do you guys think so far? As for the REPORT reviews, I'm planning to use letter codes for class reviews on airlines (it's going to be touch for me to confine using J class as Business as I'm used to using C). It might be a bit confusing for a general user though.

For class designations, better to use Y for Economy, J for Business, and F for First. Think these are the most well-known codes. Throw in X for free redemption travel as well .. kidding!

You should put a full title behind the code festival at flight reports.
Most users (like me) probably don't know all the IATA codes worldwide, actually writing the city/airport/carrier name adds lots of comfort.
That could be pretty much standardised, too.

E. g.: "REPORT | #CX: YVR-HKG - Cathay Pacific: Vancouver to Hong Kong"


Otherwise great idea. I would add a standard for aircraft threads, too. Probably without any codes, as this would lead to confusion with the other threads.

E. g.: "Airbus A380: blahblah" where "blahblah" can be a short description/title.

Good work, but:

can somebody change this to:

LH / LX | Lufthansa / Swiss (Swissair is now Swiss, SR is now LX)

If Swiss is added to Lufthansa, one should also add Austrian Airlines (OS) and BMI (or British Midland?) (BD) to the thread title aswell ...

Thanks for the correction. Swiss was always part of the Lufthansa thread.

Things are starting to shape up!! I was wondering if you could add SilkAir name to the Singapore Airlines thread because SilkAir is owned and run by Singapore Airlines. SilkAir's IATA code is MI. Thanks!!

Found the South African threads for you. Provided both the ICAO codes (which I'm more familiar with) and the IATA codes.

The other thing I want to bring up is putting an end to some duplicate threads. A lot of the country aviation news and updates threads could also apply to airports, or even brought up as another separate thread.

I'm proposing to have one large regional thread instead of many individual country threads.

North America Aviation
South America Aviation
Europe and Russia Aviation
Africa and Middle East Aviation
Asia Aviation
Cross Straight CN/HK/TW Aviation
Oceania Aviation

What do you think?

Might be a bit too cumbersome to search for content since what happens in China, for example, would differ greatly from India, etc. Within regions there's a lot of diversity as well.
