bugs: none that I noticed so far
I created a reader to get input from the user on the command line and then split it and put every single space-seperated string within a slice of strings. Then I used the indexes of the slice to seperate commands. I validated for each command within a bunch of if statement blocks. I also added validation for when a wrong command is entered. Every series of commands calls a specific function to either add or load or find (or quit) data from/to a file. I put everything within a loop that will continue executing and asking for commands until the program is exited through entering the key "q". on the file, I denoted city lines by a starting string of "c: " and a similar approach was used for airlines and flights. This is what I use to distinguish cities from flights from airports when trying to load a specific one.
