Airports Scale
The most useful (and easiest for me to fix) is improper airport scale. A general guide line of airport scale:

1. Any airport that has regular landings of jumbo airliner (B777/A380 etc) deserve a scale of 4+
2. Any airport that has regular landings of long range airliner (B787 etc) deserve a scale of 3+
3. Any airport with annual passenger of 10M+ deserve a scale of 5+  etc

At point 2 it says that any airport that has regular landings of a long range airliner deserves a scale of 3+.

However there are a whole lot of airports that see regular visits of a 737/A320. These are medium range aircraft, so they don't apply. Still they require an airport to be scale 3 in the game.

Maybe it should be changed to the following:

1. Any airport that has regular landings of jumbo airliner (B777/A380 etc) deserve a scale 5+
2. Any airport that has regular landings of a long range airliner (B787) deserve a scale 4+
3. Any airport that has regular landings of a medium range airliner (B737/A320) deserve a scale 3+
4. Any airport with annual passenger of 10M+ deserve a scale 6+ etc

I will look for airports with the wrong scale and report them. It'll be a long list.
