How was it converted to the game database format?

There are many csv to json converters available online, perhaps can try another one ...

It was read in as a CSV, any errors in the DB ought to have originated from there I would think.

For example,

DOH exist in the file, at least the version I downloaded.

VVO TZ is correctly set in another file from OpenFlights.

 

The page warns about UTF-8 problem and some csv parser may be broken. Unlike easier tsv, there are a few quirks when parsing csv.

Perhaps it's something I'll have to look at however due to the difficulty that would be involved in updating the database en masse I think it's easier to just do small corrections when errors are spotted.

Maybe add the change of airports when 2019 rolls around? Because IST is no longer Atatürk, but it is just Istanbul Airport. They moved airports. Would be nice to see that happen in-game.

Maybe in the far, far future we can add airport closures/openings but I'd have to do a lot of work to implement it since I'd need to do it in such a way that someone who has a hub at a closing airport is not inconvenienced by it too much.

MLB is an airport in Florida, and MEL is the Melbourne in Australia. Someone should probably differentiate this, to avoid confusion.

I'll find a way to separate them to avoid confusion at some point
