Hello everyone!

Since there are around 8 months since this subject was last brought up, my question is: Have you, judging by IATA codes, flown to/from airports of all the alphabet? If not, how many do you have and what airports are they?

Mine:

A: AEY ATL
B: BCN BIU BKK BOM BOS BWI
C: CDG CGN CLT CPH CUZ
D: DEL DXB
E: EGS
F: FAO FLR FRA
G: GLA
H: HAM HKG
I: IAH
J: JFK
K: KEF
L: LGW LHR LIM LPA LUX
M: MAN MCO MCT MUC
N: NRT
O: OKC ORD
P: PHL
Q:
R: RKV
S: SIN SFB SRQ
T: TPA TUL

V: VEY VRN

21/25 for me. I'm maybe going to Christmas Island, Australia (XCH) in the next few years (no joke!). That would be awesome.

Summer greetings, Sveinn Th.

Sveinn... just because the letter W isn't in the Icelandic alphabet, doesn't mean you can ignore it!  

kv.
Mark.

Oops! I forgot it! (I didn't use the Icelandic alphabet song which lacks a W while remembering the alphabet...    )

so, here it is:

W:

 

Also, BIU is Bildudalur, Iceland, EGS is Egilsstadir, Iceland, MCT is Muscat, Oman and VEY is Vestmannaeyjar (Westman Islands), Iceland.

cheers, Sveinn

Hehe I forgot it too.  

So, you have 20/26, I have 21/26. Only stats so far. Martin, you need to stop by at KEF! Also, going to Canada would be good for your alphabet.

Most likely airports to fufill list are IST, JFK, QLS, RIX, USH, WLG, XCH, YVR, ZRH

With QLS, and XCH being quite unlikely.
