Category:Pacific Airlines[edit]

User:wingtip suggests to merge the categories Category:Pacific_Airlines and Category:Jetstar_Pacific to Category:Jetstar Pacific Airlines. Apparently Pacific airlines have been bought / have merged with Jetstar (see e.g. de:Jetstar Pacific Airlines or en:Jetstar Pacific Airlines). I, personally, don't know if defunct companies should be merged to the successor companies' categories or not. Saibo (Δ) 22:58, 12 February 2012 (UTC)

Let's keep it, but only use it for aircraft with the name "Pacific Airlines". --  Docu  at 23:07, 12 February 2012 (UTC)
Defunct companies should be kept separate, although they can be categorised into their "new" company, as I have now done. russavia (talk) 07:14, 13 February 2012 (UTC)
But: the company isnt defcunt, its just renamed. so i think it should be one category and not two for one airline.--Wingtip (talk) 14:58, 13 February 2012 (UTC)
We don't change the name of he Roman empire in Italy neither. So they all have their place in history and categories as to be consistent what one sees on the images. There are hundreds of merged companies, but an encyclopedia has to be able to reconstitue history. Look at the tree in Category:ArcelorMittal, Category:Lufthansa] and Category:Anheuser–Busch InBev, a result of many merges. Youngest version is the top level category. --Foroa (talk) 15:30, 13 February 2012 (UTC)
