For example New York John F Kennedy. I don't call it JFK, I call it John F Kennedy. That's it's name. Los Angeles LAX is a bit difficult because LAX is not only the code but also the airport name, but there's almost never the need to pronounce it. Los Angeles does have multiple airports, but when you're talking about Los Angeles airport everybody knows which one you mean.
