A very narrow-minded and single language oriented comment, you realize? "In classical Greek mythology, Europa (Ancient Greek: Εὐρώπη, Eurṓpē) was a Phoenician princess. The word Europe is derived from her name. Most major world languages use words derived from Eurṓpē or Europa to refer to the continent."
A very dull and pedantic comment, you realize? He was making a joke. On an English language forum.
Joking is no excuse for such a ignorant comment. There is an airline called Air Europa, if that's what it takes to drive some sense into culturocentric aviation lovers.
