NYC airport code[edit]

"New York City (NYC IATA for all airports) is well connected by air with flights from almost every corner of the world."

@AndreCarrotflower, The dog2: I'm one of those people who uses all-airports codes to search for flights into a city. Specifically, I use LON for my annual trip through and to London as I'm not that fussy about LHR or LGW, especially where there is a connecting flight involved. I haven't been to New York City for a long time, so I don't know whete the best deals are. If use the NYC code to start my search, so I don't agree that it is "a triviality of very limited practical usefulness". Ground Zero (talk) 10:06, 6 June 2019 (UTC)

I wasn't the one who removed it but I will say I do see your perspective. Similarly, from Singapore, you can use TYO to search for flights to Tokyo if you are not fussy about which airport you're flying into, which is useful since Japan Airlines, ANA and Singapore Airlines all fly into both HND and NRT.

I also search for flights to and from "New York City area airports", because while in theory, LaGuardia is probably the most convenient for me, followed by JFK, if the price is significantly cheaper to and/or from Newark, I will go there. Ikan Kekek (talk) 15:14, 6 June 2019 (UTC)
Oops, sorry... I saw the edit and already undid it with a comment, before I noticed this discussion. However, it sounds like several of us are arguing in favor of keeping it. --Bigpeteb (talk) 16:21, 6 June 2019 (UTC)
