Quoting Firenzelv (Thread starter): KCI looks like an airport code from Indonesia......try to get it right Tribune it's MCI !!
*sighs and shakes head*
Quoting JettaKnight (Reply 1): It sounds to me like the Tribune did get it right - they're not obligated use IATA codes exclusively for every acronym.
Thank you for being a beacon of sanity in this thread. It never ceases to amaze me the overzealousness of some A.netters' expectation of the general, non-aviation geek, public to know and use all proper airline codes.
Sounds like a fairly routine return to field (if there ever was such a thing) that was handled so well, it barely deserved a mention. Good job to the AA crew.
