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.

Yeah I agree Heathrow, Stanstead, Gatwick and Luton are London airports

Level 35
Nov 17, 2017
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.

Nov 17, 2017
Whilst I agree that London City is certainly more central than Luton, perhaps it wouldn't be suitable as a clue for this quiz.

Level 59
Aug 2, 2017
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.

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?

What if some cases no? Although it’s really impossible lol
+7
Level 61
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.
+1
Level 42
Nov 15, 2021
Isn’t Mário Covas the name of Viracopos Airport (Campinas)? Not Guarulhos, which is Governador André Franco Montoro.

And Congonhas is on the city of São Paulo. It was planned to be away from the center, but the growing of the city, made the airport be squished on the buildings. Trust me, I’m from Belo Horizonte, and although I never went to São Paulo (only for make a stopover on Guarulhos, from Confins to Ezeiza on Buenos Aires), I’m getting interested about the airports and these stuff.

Nov 17, 2017
Any of you all flying into "Reagan", be sure to call it "National" when speaking to a local!
+4
Level 84
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.
+1
Level 74
Nov 20, 2017
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.
+1
Level 84
Nov 29, 2017
::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.
+1
Level 28
Nov 19, 2017
it surprises me that more people know Suvarnabhumi, Don Mueang for Bangkok and Congonhas and Guarulhos for Sao Paulo than Sky Harbor.
+7
Level 77
Nov 19, 2017
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.
+8
Level 84
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.
+3
Level 61
Nov 15, 2021
Fun fact, 'Suvarnabhumi' literally means 'golden land' or 'land of gold', which is the name of a historical or mythical kingdom in Thailand, which was located nearby!
+1
Level 44
Nov 19, 2021
Anyone with a passing knowledge for world geography will be able to narrow down those airports based on the spelling/language of the names: regions or particular countries can be deduced, and then it's a case of naming capitals and/or major cities in those areas/countries. Sky Harbor on the other hand is in the country with more major airports than any other country (although at least the spelling of Harbor does narrow it down to the US).

Why aren't you complaining about all the Italian airports on here? There are three, that's half as many as the number of American airports, and yet the USA is more than 30x larger than Italy.
+1
Level 69
Nov 15, 2021
But Italy has around 65 million international tourists per year compared to around 80 million for the USA (or around 80%). The size of the country is not that relevant. And I am not complaining about the number of US airports on here by the way as I knew four and soon got the other two. The only answer I couldn't work out was Johannesburg
+2
Level 84
Nov 15, 2021
You're actually arguing that the number of Italian airports on here is justified vs. the number of American ones? Good grief some of you people... this is beyond nonsensical. 3 million people PER DAY fly in an out of US airports. The fact that Europeans cannot coexist and so their continent is incredibly Balkanized geopolitically does make the people moving about here and there on the land mass count more as people. If the US tomorrow broke up into 50 different countries then all of a sudden you could say that the country of Florida receives 80 million "international" tourists per year (the # of visiting non-Floridians in 2020), making them, by your logic, just as relevant as the entire country of Italy.

And for the record I'm also not complaining... the # of US airports here is fine. The # of Italian airports here is fine. I'm merely pointing out how absurd and obviously biased against one special country the complainers are.

I find it odd that you didn't include Newark Airport. It serves the NYC metro area, even though it's a state over, just like how Narita Airport serves the Tokyo metro area, even though it's a prefecture over.
