Web site lists weirdest airport names

A Scotland-based Web site has published a list of the world's weirdest airport names, including the Mafia, Moron and Pickle Lake Airports.

Skyscanner.net, which specializes in cheap flights, picked Turkey's Batman Airport as its favorite name for a hub, followed by Useless Loop Airport in Australia, Black Tickle Airport in Canada, Mafia Airport in Tanzania and Moron Airport in Mongolia.

The Web site also listed airports with names that could be taken as offensive, including Japan's Fukui Airport, Nepal's Dang Airport, Pratt Airport in the United States and Ponce Airport in Puerto Rico.
