The Airlines, Airports and Routes forum was previously more interesting and useful when pieces of news were displayed as individual forums (fora ?)
The trouble is that this often resulted in proliferation of threads, particularly in the case of those airports with dedicated enthusiasts. I recall checking the Airlines, Airports and Routes page one morning to find that 5 of the 6 most recent threads were related to matters concerning or routes flown from just one particular airport. And when this happens, the various threads generally go off topic after a while and become undifferentiated chat anyway, so they start to overlap with eachother. That being the case, it's probably just as well to keep everything under one roof. It certainly keeps the forum tidier, and is surely easier for the moderators to manage (something far too many people overlook IMO).
