All these naming things are silly, no matter who they are named after. Just call it "(City) International/National/Regional Airport."

Las Vegas Airport, Nevada... Not to be confused with Las Vegas airport, New Mexico?

Why? It was already named after someone.

That someone, despite being the father of the modern aviation system in the US, was a racist jerk and anti-semite.

Chicago may as well names theirs Capone International, also! Boss Tweed International would be good for kennedy, too!

Maybe FL will rename an airport after President Donald J. Trump.

I'm sure there is a mud strip somewhere that could be named 'Donald J Trump Airport'. It would have no services. Over his 4 year reign, nearly 500,000 died, and the rich got massive tax cuts, while the rest of us got the shaft, and tens of thousands of lies...

And he left pushing The Big Lie, that he won while losing. No wonder he was a failed businessman. I will always and forever call DC's 'National Airport' by that name.
