Have You Landed On The Alphabet? Summer Edition

Sun Jun 03, 2012 10:05 pm

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
U:
V: VEY VRN
X:
Y: YYZ
Z:

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!

Quoting icelander (Reply 2):

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.

I could add GVA here, but like ZUH, I didn't fly into it: I just visited it (or, rather, slept in it).

Now I just need E, Q and Y!

Canada! Canada! Canada!  

I'm lucky to have E after flying into Egilsstadir, Iceland (EGS) a couple of times. Only big airport that starts with E I can think of in the moment is EZE. There must be more though!

EBJ is also a big airport, if you are going to the danish sector in the north sea

DRW not DWN

Was missing I, J, Q, R, U, W, X, Y, Z.

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

With QLS, and XCH being quite unlikely.
