I always thought that 'East Midlands Airport' was fine as an airport name. The often used name years ago, 'Donnington', was far less useful for overseas travellers to account for where it was.
Then in 2004 it was changed to 'Nottingham East Midlands Airport' which is where i took my nickname from (NEMA)
And now...... they are changing it again, but this surely is not good..
In an announcement this morning I was told the new name would be, wait for it....
and i quote...
With immediate effect the Airport will be known as:
'East Midlands Airport Nottingham, Leicester, Derby'
Please a.netters tell me, are we going to have the longest airport name in the world for our local airport? Maybe this will be our claim to fame!
Please tell me someone is having a laugh, if for no other reason this wont quite fit on to departure boards.
There isnt really a dark side to the moon, as a matter of fact its all dark!
