I think this is largely correct and fitting for IB.

I don't know what these all would correlate to *there*. Would Airbus be the child of Zeppelin's blimp works? Would Boeing be the NALien equivalent?

we need to eliminate or come up with airship name/types, and we really need everyone involved to verify the names of destinations. BoArthur 22:49, 12 Feb 2005 (PST)

Done my part. I still think the names of several destinations need to be changed (notably in Helvetia), and that we'll need to add some in Germany itself. As for the types, it's quite possible that Boeings and Airbuses are zeppelins *there*, but I wouldn't necessary give them exactly the same names as *here* (Boeing 747 etc.). Another thought I've had for a long time is the existence of a brandname Hindenburg (based on which I also assumed the existence of another brand, Wenedyk Hindenburg, a series of small zeppelins produced in the RTC).

Agreed about not copying "747" and all that, though I must admit that Rolls Royce dóes produce a "Royal 707 Airship", as can be seen in the BOAC advert. [I think that is because the logo looks fancy, not because it is in a series of progressively advanced craft.] That one's in print and can not be changed by any fiat or word of power! :) Elemtilas
I think airships are not mass-produced in the same way as aeroplanes such that you'll have several hundreds of identical airships. I think they're more like ships of the sea in that these are made-to-order. So why not name them by type instead of by model? Sailing ships, for instance, can be classified by their rigging and tonnage into frigates, corvettes, brigs, brigantines, and schooners (just to name a few). I suppose something similar can be done for airships by classifying them according to where the propellers are placed and their payload capacity. One could for instance have a "250 ton airschooner (built by Boeing in 1996)" or a "2200 ton airfrigate (built by Airbus in 2001)". Air-Naval ships could be classified in a similar way: carriers, battleships, frigates, corvettes, etc.

That sounds very good. I like that idea. I wasn't sure how to proceed with that, so it's very helpful to have some input. :) I'll have to think if there's a Louisiannan brand. BoArthur

Castile and Leon destinations

Well...

Madrid, in Castilian Spain, is a nice city but not particularly important... Valladolid (the Capital), Toledo, Seville and Cadiz are usually more significative.

Are there no flights to the American nations of the Kingdom of Castile and Leon?

Malaga is indeed in Castile and Leon.

Feel free to add the major cities *there* and remove ones that are listed that aren't major *there* but are *here*. I'll leave that to your domain, Chlewey. BoArthur 11:50, 23 Feb 2005 (PST)

Turkey and Turkestan destinations

I added a flight to Buxara, as I found it inconceivable that Lufthansa would fly to both of the other major hubs of Turkestani air travel, but not to the capital. I also updated the spellings of Turkestani cities I found.

Also, I re-routed the Ankara flight to the Turkish capital Gordion.

I hope the archon of this page doesn't mind. Geoff

Subsidiaries

I removed the mention of a Dalmatian subsidiary of BLH - air transport in Dalmatia is a state monopoly. Dalmatinac 20:58, 11 October 2009 (UTC)
