Is Datalounge in favor?

Oh, yeah. Such an improvement over the way they desecrated National.

San Francisco-Milk

It would be wonderful.

I still refer to Washington National as National Airport. I will NEVER call it Reagan National, and most everyone I know here in DC does likewise. We wince when visitors call it Reagan.

I lived most of my life in DC, R4, and I cringe everytime I hear that name attached to the airport.

I know how you feel, r5

Fuck John Foster Dulles and his airport too.

I like the French Vanilla flavor.

Overwhelmingly yes.

Same with Houston Intercontinental Airport, which was renamed in honor of George H. W. Bush. I hate calling it "Bush Airport" but admit it's less of a mouthful.

Will the FAA change SFO to MLK?

by Anonymousreply 1201/16/2013

That's not an FAA thing, it's IATA.

MLK is currently not in use as an IATA code, but I assume they won't ever use it owing to, well, MLK Jr.

R12, I doubt it...

by Anonymousreply 1401/16/2013

I now see there is such a thing as an FAA location identifier, and it's often identical to the IATA code. So much for my attempt to enlighten.

If they're going to name it after someone this the best idea.

by Anonymousreply 1601/16/2013

Why not? We have to put up with the National Airport having been named for that fuckhead ronnie reegin. Reagan not only got a complete free pass throughout his life, the republicans think he should be canonized apparently and shoved naming the National Airport after him down our throats.

We've already got the Moscone Center so it would be great if they'd rename the airport after Harvey Milk.

Will airlines from Middle Eastern countries with Islamic governments boycott? Will American Christian conservatives feel violated by having to land at an airport named after a "sinner"?

New Orleans is still MSY (Moisant Stock Yards) and Chicago O-Hare is still ORD (Orchard).

ElderGays know JFK will always be Idlewild.

by Anonymousreply 2101/17/2013

I've kind of had it with naming bridges, tunnels, airports and stuff after politicians. It glorifies them when really they are pretty much slime.

by Anonymousreply 2201/17/2013

Does this mean the planes flying in there will be limped wing?

Tell me about the men's bathrooms. Will they be remodeled and expanded?

If you capitalize everything but the "i" both gays and blacks (and black gays) will get something out of it.

A much more deserving change would be in London, either Heathrow or Gatwick should be renamed Princess Diana International.

by Anonymousreply 2601/17/2013

R26, we loved you in the youtube video hearing the news with your friends. You're the fat one, right?

by Anonymousreply 2701/17/2013

NO!!!! SFO is iconic. It would be like changing LAX. Or JFK (which, I know, used to be Idylwild)

Milk International sounds stupid.

by Anonymousreply 2801/17/2013

R28 thinks that everything in the world is a branding session - she's the type who LIKES the made-up names of Japanese cars and would name her daughter Jizzelle because it's sooooooooooooooooo mellifluous.

by Anonymousreply 2901/17/2013

I completely agree r26 but, renaming an Airport after our beloved Diana doesn't do her justice. Her birthday, July 1st should have been made a national holiday by now. Needless to say, it's a travesty that it hasn't.

by Anonymousreply 3001/17/2013

In LAX, there is the Mayor Tom Bradley International Terminal -- maybe they can rename one of the buildings for Milk so as to keep the iconic San Francisco name (even if it is in San Bruno).
