Simple Request Re Airport Codes

Tue Dec 16, 2003 2:34 am

I have a general, simple request for users of this board:

If you wish to refer to an airport code that does not "automatically" appear on airliners.net's "mouse-over" feature, could you please tell us which one you're talking about? I know it's a minor request, but one of my pet peeves is not knowing what a particular airport code is, and then having to ask or look it up elsewhere on the web.

At the same time, could I also request that the powers that be update their database of airport codes recognized by the "mouse-over" window? I don't know how much trouble it is, but for example, typing in "AUS" for an airport code still refers to the old Robert Mueller Airport, which was closed in 1999.

If I've gone outside the appropriate channels for making this request, please accept my apologies. I'm not trying to complain, just make a suggestion.

Thanks!

There is a great site for working out airport codes: http://www.airlinecodes.co.uk I think the crew are still updating the airports and in the near future, all codes typed in will have the 'mouse-over' feature.

Thanks for the update DC-10 Levo -- and kudos to the a.net crew for working on this; I'm sure it's a long process.

Isn't there a Forum called "Site Related" or did they take it down?
