As one of the original citizen media sites, it’s appropriate that Flickr‘s airline groups are run by the people, for the people. Searching the site’s groups for “airlines” yields more than 1,500 results, but only a fraction of them appear to be maintained by airline employees.

A Flickr group consists of a page with a photo pool and a discussion board—both of which can only be contributed to by group members. Most major airlines have a page, but it’s impossible to tell if they are “official”  or fan-created—which may be the ultimate sign of effective engagement. The discussion boards tend to be sparsely populated, but the important thing is that customers have the opportunity to engage with each other and the brand in their medium of choice (that is, without having to hop over to Facebook or Twitter).

Sadly, the majority of airline-specific Flickr pools are lacking in depth; one can only look at so many cockpit photos or shots of planes flying into the sunset. It would be great to see more passenger-focused pics along the lines of flight attendant/blogger Heather Poole’s weird and awesome Laviator series.

But don’t delete your Flickr bookmarks just yet. As usual, the airplane geeks steal the show with pages devoted to everything from flight attendant uniforms and in-flight meals, to vintage ads and airport lounges.
