It'll be similar to current US airports, but globally. We now have some generic airport buildings coming with this scenery too. It's looking pretty nice with the high-quality base imagery, but airports are far from finished ;)

Will the night lighting extend globally or is it just for selected areas?

Yes, and night lighting is global :)

It should! We'll need to test it and make sure there aren't any high-latitude bugs, but we are using a spherical earth model.

Is real world weather a possibility?

A widebody could happen eventually but it isn't at the top of our list. Real world weather is a definite possibility and we have some plans around it, but not in this update ;)

Thanks Dan, it’s very refreshing to get a ‘non fluffy’ reply from a flight sim developer.
I hope that we get a few third party add on guys onboard FFs, to satisfy the tube liner demand.
