Fun fact: If you fly out of Fort Lauderdale Airport there's a good chance there are one or two dead bodies on your plane. Right in the cargo hold. Next to your suitcase maybe. And just like your lost luggage they sometimes lose the bodies.

Flew into there once, not too bad.  Nice, small sized airport for ease of walking around.

How about Everglades International?

If tomorrow all the things were gone I'd worked for all my life
And I had to start again with just my children and my wife
I'd thank my lucky stars to be livin' here today
'Cause the flag still stands for freedom and they can't take that away
And I'm proud to be an American where as least I know I'm free
And I won't forget the men who died, who gave that right to me
And I'd gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today
'Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land God bless the USA
From the lakes of Minnesota, to the hills of Tennessee
Across the plains of Texas, from sea to shining sea
From Detroit down to Houston and New York to LA
Well, there's pride in every American heart
And it's time to stand and say that
I'm proud to be an American where as least I know I'm free
And I won't forget the men who died, who gave that right to me
And I'd gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today
'Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land God bless the USA

By that logic Washington Dulles has to drop "Washington" and be renamed as The Fairfax-Loudoun-Dulles & Chantilly International Airport. And put some "Reagan" and "Jesus" in the mix for full effect.

it'd be nice to see a return to classical names that give a nod to early legends in aviation.

FLL sucks!  I go to PBI anytime I want to get out of "Dodge".  Much smaller and usually the same prices.  And since they are both about the same distance, PBI wins!  I hate driving S. on 95 (not that I drive 95 everyday, but...)

F-Miami!  You need to speak muliple languages, and English is not one of them.

You're probably right.  They already named the farking turnpike after him.

Sounds to me like a dipshiat commissioner needs to be UN-elected in November or March or soon.

This. It has to have some of the worst terminals ever. Ridiculously long security lines, no edible  food / drink options to speak of, limited space at the gates, and super-thick carpeting on the floors to give you the feel of pushing your luggage thru quicksand.
