San Francisco International Airport.

It would be nice to name it after a very important local hero.

Jerry Garcia International Airport.  Smile

For my home airport, ATL, I'd drop of all of the name B.S. and rename the airport Atlanta International Airport. The name was already a mouthful when it was just Hartsfield Atlanta International Airport, and adding the Jackson part made it even worse. The main terminal building would become the Hartsfield Terminal, and the new International Terminal would retain the name already given to it, the Jackson International Terminal. If and when the new South Terminal is ever built, I would name it the Candler Terminal (Candler Field was the original name for the airport).

If it took a name, I would hope maybe Hendrix International or Starbucks International.  Smile By the way, when are corporations going to start buying naming rights for airports?

Exactly as I'd do the same for IAH....remove the reference to Bush even though it was named for George Herbert W. Bush (41) not (43) but just flat out sounds bad these days.......so rename it Intercontinental Airport Houston.

HAJ : Amend by "Karl Jatho"
He was a local aviation pioneer; meanwhile he is getting honoured more and more, but adding his name to the present "Hannover - Langenhagen" would be the ultimate thing.

I agree, it would be awesome! Big grin

As for the memorial, I don't think there is one actually. I may be wrong! I'll have look at some photos I have taken of various monuments.

So maybe renaming SOU to Benny Hill Int'l isn't such a bad idea!  Wink

I would rename JFK back to Idlewild (IDL). John F. Kennedy was from Massachusetts, not New York. It just makes no sense. And besides, the word Idlewild has a nice sound to it.

Ryanair has already "kindly" renamed FAO as Faro/Huelva even thought Huelva is 70 miles away!!

I wouldn't rename it anything, and totally agree with Srbmod. Some recent, IMHO, useless name amendments include LPL (John Lennon), JNB (already had a name but changed to O R Tambo), DSA (Robin Hood) and EMA (back to EMA from Nottingham EMA).



Breakfast in BHX, lunch in FAO, dinner in TIP, baggage in YYC.
