VFD discussion[edit]


  • DeleteHold - Do we really need articles for each airline in operation? --NJR_ZA 02:25, 19 March 2007 (EDT)
  • Keep The same user has done articles for two other airlines, see Travel_topics#By_plane, and I considered entering a VFD for those, since airline articles seem odd to me. But I decided not to bother; they do no harm I can see. For Silverjet, I didn't consider a VFD. They seem to offer an unusual service — business class only flights at good prices — which is worth mentioning. Even if the decision is to delete this, I think we need more info on such airlines, perhaps at First_and_business_class_travel#Business-only_airlines. Pashley 03:17, 19 March 2007 (EDT)
    • Actually, I did the AA and NW articles (mainly because the Flyertalk people don't know how to edit their own wiki) and had nothing to do with the Silverjet article. - Sekicho 03:52, 19 March 2007 (EDT)
    • Oops. Since the three all appeared in the Travel Topics index at about the same time, I made a bogus assumption. Pashley 05:37, 19 March 2007 (EDT)
  • Delete - while it's not officially listed in the criteria for deletion, I don't think it's far off from other things that are, and don't think it really needs to be it's own article. They only fly between Newark and London for one, so can be covered easily within the "Get in" sections on the articles, and mentioned (as it already is now) on the 1st&business travel page mentioned above. The info that's on the page could easily be condensed into a paragraph, a lot of it is more Wikipedia oriented anyhow – cacahuate talk 04:03, 19 March 2007 (EDT)
  • Hold until the discussion I just started on Wikitravel talk:What is an article? reaches some sort of consensus. Jpatokal 12:24, 19 March 2007 (EDT)
  • Keep. I think some of the other articles-about-carriers demonstrate that there is some worth in attempting this experimentally. So let's just let the experiment run. -- Colin 22:49, 19 March 2007 (EDT)
  • Keep - though am wondering whether a standard template should be devised for these kind of articles in order to keep them focused on travelers needs and prevent the info from becoming too encyclopedic. For discussion, see: Wikitravel talk:What is an article?#Airlines . WindHorse 02:11, 4 April 2007 (EDT)
  • Delete Why should wikitravel promote some businesses and not others? I don't see any purpose in having an article on SilverJet (which is not the only business class airline in the world) when a link to its booking page from any reference will suffice.--Wandering 16:32, 1 November 2007 (EDT)

Note: This article might get re-proposed for deletion depending on the outcome of the Wikitravel talk:What is an article? discussion. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 14:25, 7 April 2007 (EDT)
