We have 4 videos and a bunch of screenshots, comments on those are not speculation and they have to be accepted as valid point of views even if different from own ones.Then, there is some speculation and also some guesses, f.i. the one that states that 10GB couldn't cover the whole world IMO is logical and technical speech with whom I agree 100%.

That is false because as stated above, it is a fact that Microsoft Flight would include the whole world and BTW don't you have something else better to do, go and speculate some where else, go read a book, play FSX, do something

Your 21 post show you are quite new, well, I am a resident pet here and I post pretty much each day telling my opinion on Flight, so, get used to it or get over it.

Since you have no faith in Flight and spend your days bashing it and trolling this forum then what's the point?What's your simulation alternative? What do you play?

Your run-on sentences don't make it seem like you are very experienced, either.
