AND FINALLY: Luton just confuses

Last week BTN noted that Berlin Schönefeld is dumping its present IATA three-letter code (SXF) for the more sensible BER.  It will of course become Terminal 5 when Willy Brandt finally opens. 

BTN will not win any brownie points from the airport operator but with the appointment of a new Chief Commercial Officer (see in this week's BTN) we suggest that London Luton Airport drops its own private three-letter code (LLA) and reverts to the one used on all the reservation systems – LTN.  LLA is plain (or plane) confusing to both public and industry.  LLA is Lanzarote as far as the aviation world is concerned!  Mark your arrival Mr Pollard!
