Footnote: DIA was the original code for Dulles until it was changed to IAD
(apparently to avoid confusion with DCA
--same logic behind IAH
, I suppose). As for announcements of landing at "New York/Newark"--I hear Braniff1960's complaint all the time. Not sure what the problem is, since the Port Authority of NEW
YORK and New Jersey runs it, and probably more than half of the arriving pax on the plane are anxious to get out of NJ
and back across the Hudson asap.
