Map Tailoring

Currently the presentation of the maps and tables are tailored towards the author's current airline. This tailoring is reflected by the coloured boxes on the maps, and part of the contents of the tables.

Maps in more detail

The boxes around the ICAO label indicate the presence of specific airport approach charts on the aircraft. This implies a preference towards these airports as alternates from the airline management. This is, perhaps, a little distracting to pilots of other companies. These coloured boxes on the charts exist as an overlay and can easily be removed or substituted.

The map below shows a section of the Spanish map as it currently exists. Clicking on each of the three buttons below will cycle the image between the original author tailored map, the raw map without boxes, and the map tailored towards Easyjet.
