Whats with jrpgs and airships?

I noticed in the millions upon millions of jrpgs i've played over the years, at least 90% of those feature airship technology.

What's the deal with airship food?

Airships are awesome, that's why.

Cause it's like steam punk and all to have a ship that sails through the air

I have a better question:

Why do Final Fantasy games go with "airship" instead of the obviously superior vernacular choice of "heli-boat?" I mean, "airship" sounds kinda bland. "Heli-boat" sounds more accurate, since they take a boat and just strap a propeller to the mast. Plus, it makes me giggle like a little girl when I say it. "Heli-boat."

Final Fantasy 7? That was an airship. Final Fantasy 8? That.... that was a spaceship - no air there. Final Fantasy 10? I have no idea, airship may have been good there since I think it was hi-tech-ish or something.

Bad JRPG's try to copy final fantasy just like how bad fps games try and copy cod.

Wasn't that one a boat that went in space, or something? I never played it much myself, but I had a friend who was a FF maniac and he showed me the end of FF4 before. Didn't it take place on the moon? And they survived without spacesuits? Seriously, that's just too silly for me!

Yes, I'm (mostly) joking about my posts.

they took a boat and added heli props to it... and it was able to go underground where there's a lot of lava and magma flowing everywhere. and yes it went to the moon (i think)

i know the game went to the moon but i forget if it was the same airship that went there..
