Airways or Airlines?


Mind if we change Afriqiyah Airlines to Afriqiyah Airways? At its own website it calls itself "Airways" (as does English Wikipedia). --InfantGorilla (talk) 14:44, 12 May 2010 (UTC)Reply

My bad, for some reason I thought I saw the wikipedia article and all the sources use Airlines. --James Pain (talk) 16:06, 12 May 2010 (UTC)Reply

Done. All 3 sources also use "Airways". --InfantGorilla (talk) 14:59, 12 May 2010 (UTC)Reply

Age of Survivor


There seems to be some confusion about the age of the only survivor. We have 4 sources listed, three of the sources state the boy is eight, a single source (fox news no less) states the boy is ten. Now, if you believe the boy is not eight then post your sources that are reliable, up to date and states the boy's age or a single source stating that the boy was thought to be eight but is now known to be X. --James Pain (talk) 09:09, 13 May 2010 (UTC)Reply

First, why is fox news not considered a reliable source? And second, the article states the age of the boy. Also, why didn't you remove my source when you removed my info? On this topic as well, the Wikipedia article has the age of the boy at nine, and his name as Ruben van Assouw. Since this has a name, I would assume this to be correct.

It's not that Fox News isn't a reliable source even though that is my personal opinion, it's that more sources say he's eight. Fox News can back up everything else in the article and it gives one more link for people to click through to if they want to read the article themselves. Wikipedia may well say 9-years-old but this could be because they can read the Dutch articles they've sourced. If you can read Dutch, then go right ahead and read their sources, assess if it's more accurate than the sources saying another age, post the source and update the age. --James Pain (talk) 16:31, 13 May 2010 (UTC)Reply
