Can you accept Fort Meyers? I know it's wrong, but many people (including myself) will probably guess that.

The best I could come up with was Del Boca Vista, but since others will probably make the same mistake, I think I should get credit, too.

Yes, I used to live in Del Boca Vista until I saw a bum sleeping in a Cadillac. I looked at my wife, Estelle, and said, "That's it! We're going back to Queens!"

Cape Coral should be accepted as the airport is not located in Ft Myers, and CC is the biggest city in the metro region. However I like when correct spelling is required. I spent 30 years misspelling Bismarck and Colombia before I started taking these quizzes.

On second thought no one ever says "I'm flying into Cape Coral", it's always Ft Myers. I retract my previous comment (except the spelling part)

Oh come on - just admit that you didn't get it right. Spelling should be part of a correct answer (imho).

I agree, but it (almost) never is in here. So in fairness Fort Meyers should be accepted too.

Santiago is a bit surprising, as Punta Cana has about 5 times more passengers, but maybe Americans don't like it so much.

I made a commnet about it earlier, but I think it got deleted when this was featured. Santiago airport has about 70% of its passengers going to New York. Not sure why though...

its because there are a lot of people from the Dominican republic that live in New York City. A plane that crashed right after 9/11 into Queens was one of the flights that went to the DR.

I may or may not have gotten it if I hadn't sat next to a guy from Santiago de los Caballeros at a Yankees game a couple of weeks ago. There are a lot of Dominicans in New York.

Which is why I tried Santo Domingo. Never knew there was a Santiago there. Thanks for the info.

Lots of Dominicans in NYC for sure - I briefly worked with a guy from DR who grew up in the same town as Sammy Sosa. They knew each other. Sammy gave him a bat - broken in game - and he brought it in one day to show me. It was cool. Love Dominicans! Great people!!!

I'm surprised how few international locations there are. I thought with NY being so cosmopolitan it would have more flights outside the States.

Oh it sure does, but these are only the 50 busiest ones. Most Europeans, for example, have to fly to NYC through one of the hubs - London, Frankfurt, Paris, Amsterdam. The same is probably true on other continents. And air travel has a larger share in domestic travel in the US than in many other countries, due to long distances and lack of alternatives (no high-speed train system). That pushes many international destinations beyond #50.
