Tag wiki excerpt:

A vehicle used for travelling long distances through the sky.

Furthermore, is a synonym of . This happened in April 2012, but I didn't find a meta post about it. So, now we can discuss it.

The other two options are shorter and seem to be a bit broader, so maybe more suitable for questions also about preparations for a flight or its aftermath. On the other hand, they would need some work (but then again, it's only 11 questions).


Currently the tag synonym.

It is the least ambiguous ( could be confused with running away as you've cited, could be misconstrued with the vehicle or possibly a toy, both of these are unlikely in my estimation).

It also succinctly conveys the intent of the tag (talking about air travel, before, during or after), whereas does not. also does a good job of conveying the intent, but I feel like will be searched and found by more people (based purely on conjecture and what I feel like I would search).
