So I make a dumb suggestion in IRC and hours later it’s already live on your site? Really shouldn't surprise me anymore…

It seems like something went wrong with the flight code: your post links to AB7393, but for some reason flightaware only tracks it as BER7393. Seems like AB is the IATA code, and BER the ICAO one (Wikipedia).

One reason to have permalinks for comments is that you can reliably send Webmentions from them. Another one might be comment pagination, where you otherwise need JS to find the right page? Interesting idea. What mail-client/reader do you use that allows to hide those numbers? I guess I could write user CSS to remove them from Inoreader… Hooray for easy-to-manipulate web apps?
and here is matching picture in the other direction ;)
