Oddly enough, in his article on airplane vocabulary in the recent HolQeD, 
Okrand didn't provide us a word for "airplane" itself!  So people have to 
make do.  Calling every type of vehicle or craft a {Duj} "ship, vessel" 
would get tiresome.

FYI: Some people on the List use *{yavDuj} "groundship" for "automobile, 
car"; others have used *{ghor Duj} "surface (of planet) vessel".
