If you’re at all like MRP, you’re interested in how cars and airports get their names. For example, earlier this year, I was supposed to fly BOS-JFK-PDX. But instead I flew BOS-LVS-PHX-PDX. Huh?
For instance, I’ve never understood why anyone would name a car Scion. And I am, I admit, a little superstitious about flying to a place that is routinely referred to as LAX.
So I was amused by this little tidbit about how the three-letter FAA identifier for Sioux Gateway Airport in Sioux City, Iowa, is SUX.
City leaders have scrapped plans to do away with the Sioux Gateway Airport’s unflattering three-letter identifier — SUX — and instead have made it the centerpiece of the airport’s new marketing campaign.
Instead, they’ve decided to accentuate the positive. Well, good for them.
Bonus MRP moment: Go Sox!
