Speaking of renaming things, there's an airport in D.C.

that Id like to have its name reverted to its original name.

And I will never call it anything but Washington National Airport.

4. I never have either and yet to have a airline rep try to correct me....

I think the sentiment is very common.

5. Locals

For a long time, the locals just called it "National". It was National, Dulles, and BWI.

6. Agree.

I despise the highway directional signs.

The giant Reagan statue at the airport entrance ought to get knocked down, but post November.

10. I used to work there, and if anyone states its current name

within my hearing, I politely correct them.

I recall when BWI was Baltimore Friendship airport. A much better name.
