Correction: Devvik2 actually knows them, the rest of us cheat :P (Edit: to be fair "cheating" and repeatedly taking the quiz is a valid way of learning these things so you do know them... that's how I learned all the countries and capitals!)

A lot of people from California vacation in Hawaii and the quiz allows you to name the island, not necessarily the city the airport is in.

Maui and Kauai worked, which makes sense since you fly into them for the islands rather than the site where the airport is. (I've flown into both of those and I don't remember their actual names.) Honolulu and Hilo need the place names, which also makes sense. Judicious work, Quizmaster!

I only missed Kona and ended up with 89%. I think people are cheating. Not Devvik. But there simply aren't that many people who live in Hawaii.

I got Kona because I had read something about that airport just a few days ago, maybe somewhere in a comment on Reddit or something obscure like that, but by typing the islands I got the other two as well. I don't think people are cheating, well, not that many anyway. There are always some.

You don't have to live there to know about it. Hawaii is a very popular vacation destination. Obviously hundreds of thousands of people are flying into these airports or else they wouldn't be on that list. Maybe some of those people take Jetpunk quizzes.

I got Kona because that's where I flew into when I went to Hawaii- aside from that one, the rest are all major cities or islands in Hawaii, which I imagine many people, especially those who regularly take quizzes on here, would know without needing to cheat.

I didn't even think of Honolulu and never heard of the other Hawaii ones but I guess there will be a lot of people from California taking this quiz and if Hawaii is one of the most common destinations it makes sense a lot of people will know them...

You don't have to be from a place to know something about it but those 3 smaller Hawaiian cities are very obscure and it's my opinion that people are cheating.

@kalbahamut -- what you call cheating I call "a good way to learn geography trivia". If I was not allowed to retake quizzes on here using knowledge I learned from previous takes, I would still not know the name of most of the worlds countries :P

Well, as a European I had no idea about the Hawaiian destinations other than Honolulu. I would imagine most on this side of the Atlantic don't, other than geography buffs or people who have been there. What are the demographics for Jetpunk users anyway? Is it listed somewhere?

Make a quiz about geography in your country that all of us Americans will fail at! (Caveat: this is a trivia quiz website so there's a good chance many of the Americans on here will know it or be willing to learn it to ace your quiz. But still, could be fun!)

I used to work for an airline that flew to Hawaii, which is why I knew those ones.

I got "Lihue" by typing Kauai and "Kahului" but typing Maui. The siame strategy (typing the specific island's name) doesn't work for "Kona," though; I typed "Hawaii", thinking of the Big Island, but I guess it makes sense it wouldn't apply in that case. I'd be surprised if people knew the actual airport names, but since the island names work as answers, and the islands aren't somehow known or visited only by Hawaiians or Californians, I'd assume that's the reason. Handy dandy auto-fills.

"Typical Amer-centric map bias..."

That might help demonstrate the distances to Asia and Oceania better, but I'm not sure if it would really affect scores that much.

How about making (or featuring if its already been made) a versions of the Busiest Air Routes quizzes without the map? This quiz is basically just can you name 50 cities on a map, not name the 50 Busiest Air Routes from LA as the title says. Takes the fun out of it.

What Goalslammer said. Also sometime connecting flights give you weirdly short hops (this happens to me most of the time in Texas but has happened in CA). Heck, there's even multiple hopper flights per day between LAX and SNA!

Would recommended to add Fort Worth as a type in for Dallas, as the airport is in between Dallas, and Fort Worth, thusly named "Dallas/Fort Worth Airport"
