I've never heard before from an "George Bush"-Airport... aren't airports usually named after dead persons? Hm, I sure learn here daily new stuff :-)

Luton airport is not part of London...Luton is just outside London and is a separate town. You could have Stanstead instead.

Luton is still a London Airport. Stansted is further away from Central London than Luton.

Don't forget London City Airport as well :) Technically only Heathrow and City are in London... Gatwick is in Surrey/West Sussex, Luton is in Bedfordshire and Stansted is in Essex, but they are all considered London airports, though interestingly not all of their airport codes represent this (LHR, LGW, LCY, STN and LTN repectively).

How about City airport, which is closer than any of the ones mentioned? Stansted can be added as well of course.

Whilst I agree that London City is certainly more central than Luton, perhaps it wouldn't be suitable as a clue for this quiz.

Stansted is as far from London as Luton is. Following your logic, Gatwick wouldn't be included either (it's in Sussex, a county that doesn't even border Greater London!). Luton is officially called London-Luton airport - it serves London.

My daughter used to live in Phoenix and I always had good experiences when I flew there. Once I needed a wheelchair and I was treated like royalty by the staff. That was several years ago, maybe it's different now. Actually, I can't think of a domestic airport where I wasn't treated well and I've been to Logan, JFK, LaGuardia, Lambert, Denver, San Francisco, LAX, San Jose, Memphis, Salt Lake City, and Lihue. But I always try to time flights very early in the morning or on days of the week when they aren't as busy.

The only ones I knew before taking this quiz were New York, Chicago, London, and Boston; the rest were just guesses. By the way, couldn't Newark airport also be counted as one of New York's airports? Even though it's in New Jersey, I've always heard it be considered a part of New York City's metro area and one of the three airports there.

It's not a comprehensive quiz, guy. And it's not a quiz on the busiest airports in the world either. There will be other quizzes. Atlanta may or may not feature in one of them. It'll be okay.

ah, just a little correction: Congonhas airport in the STATE of São Paulo is not in São Paulo CITY as this quiz explicitly suggests but in the city of...CONGONHAS. Search your stuff carefully to confirm but trust me, I'm from Salvador, Brazil and I've been to Congonhas, both the city and the airport.

So, being 5 km away from the city center doesn't count for METRO AREA?

level 56
Nov 17, 2017
What are you talking about ? There's no city of Congonhas ? The airport is named after the neighborhood where it is located, formerly called Vila Congonhas, property of the descendants of Lucas Antônio Monteiro de Barros (1767–1851), Viscount of Congonhas do Campo. It is right in THE MIDDLE OF Sao Paulo, so in the middle that is actually unable to grow and therefore Guarulhos Airport (actually the name of that airport is Mario Covas) was built in the neighboring city of Guarulhos. And trust me, I am from Sao Paulo.

Any of you all flying into "Reagan", be sure to call it "National" when speaking to a local!
+3
level 76
Nov 19, 2017
Why? I'm a local. The airport's name is Reagan National. Or Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. Or Washington National. Or DCA. Or Reagan. Or National. All of these names are used interchangeably and I've never observed them upsetting anyone. Apparently the name was changed in 1998. I was 19. I don't remember it happening.

Maybe 'older local' might have worked better in @philnino's comment. I fly out of Newark primarily. After 2001, its 'official' name became 'Newark Liberty International Airport'. Not one person I know or have ever met uses the word 'Liberty' except when making official announcements (eg, a flight attendant on the intercom). I think the Reagan/National interchangeability works a lot better for DCA than for EWR.

::shrug:: my dad is almost 70 years old and I've heard him call the airport both Reagan and National. My mom has lived in the area since 1953 and does the same. Never knew anyone to make a fuss over the name. Like I said, I wasn't even aware that it had changed. Though Reagan wasn't president that long ago so logically it had to.

it surprises me that more people know Suvarnabhumi, Don Mueang for Bangkok and Congonhas and Guarulhos for Sao Paulo than Sky Harbor.

Why? Bangkok is a national capital and a huge tourist destination. Sao Paulo is the largest city in Brazil and one of the largest in the world. Phoenix? Meh.

Nov 29, 2017
I'd be one of them. Have flown out of both Suvarnabhumi and Don Mueang many times each. Never been to Phoenix before. Even if that weren't true, Suvarnabhumi looks like a Thai name and would be easy to guess. Congonhas and Guarulhos are both obviously from some Portuguese-speaking country. Sky Harbor is so generic it could be literally anywhere.
