Hello, I am new to the forums and after a long, LONG while of considering the idea of suggesting & fielding possible interest in further expansion and updating of the AV8 & AV9 sets, I decided to do it. To be honest - I've been considering this for over a year now haha.
I LOVE the AV sets & Real World Airlines, and though they are already quite expansive & very, very well done, I am like Keralis and cannot ever get enough of all the details & little things like what these GRFs bring to the game. I have always been a diehard transit "whore", for lack of a better term, spending hours upon hours per month ranting, raving, searching, investigating, thinking, observing, etc, etc all areas of mass transit, especially buses & aircraft, along with the various transit companies behind them 'round the world. In this spirit, I have found MANY more airlines and even many more airplanes that I feel should be added to the AV & RWA GRF sets. Even all the recent shifts in liveries of airlines as well. The sudden startups and new kids on the block showing up all the long-timers. New aircraft from all the world's big dogs to new aircraft manufacturers. Boeing's 787s, AirBus's A350s, A319, A318, A321, their Beluga concept, Embraer's new release, Bombardier's newest releases, and even Sukoi, Yakolev, CRAIC, Irkut & COMAC planes that the GRFs left out. Antonov has plenty of influential planes yet were completely skipped. Even Ilyushin has a few they left out. Hell, I'd even throw in McDonnell-Douglas' MD-12 concept plane. Supersonic commercial jets are back to being conceptualized, studied and even built, after priory being scrapped entirely by everyone. Boeing is back at it, Antonov is looking into reconsidering picking up on their An-144 & An-244 concepts where they had left off. At this point I wouldn't be surprised if Airbus was looking into it themselves.
To me, this would add oh so much more to the game, even when this exact set of GRFs already does such as is - it would therefore in my mind add far more than they already do for sure. I would be absolutely ecstatic and utterly enthralled if I were to see, hear or even stumble onto a new expansion for such.
Thank you for taking the time out of your days to read this suggestion, I appreciate it. Any feedback, ideas & suggestions is also appreciated of course, and most certainly seeing a show of hands so to speak is especially exciting haha.

According to them and the rest of the government run transit agencies, it's the world's "Transit Mecca". Europe, save us, please.
