Hi Michael,

Read your proposal and have some comments/questions

Regarding travel duration, I think this information is irrelevant in the
route relation, which is only a route.
The duration depends on what's walking the route (Paris/NYC with A380 =
approx 7h and Paris/NYC with Concorde used to be lasting 3h)

From/to should be derived from relation members (role=start/stop). But it
may be desirable to have these data for display or labelling.

What if several operators use the route ? Will we have to create as many
routes as operators ?

I use to believe flight routes aren't fixed paths but a bunch of paths
which may vary depending on weather, air pressure, etc...
Is this really mapable in OSM ?

You may give a few details more in the Route tracking chapter

All the best
