A little history for the folks at EK...Seattle-Tacoma International Airport is owned by the Port of Seattle. The citizens of King County (the county Seattle is located in) are the ones that built SeaTac airport (and CONTINUE to pay for) through their tax dollars. It was only because back in the 1940's when Seattle and Tacoma were not that different in population that Seattle was 'nice' and included Tacoma in the name of the airport. To call it 'Tacoma International Airport' is not only insulting but totally inaccurate.
