3-letter names reserved?
The article says that 3-letter domains are reserved for airports with the corresponding IATA codes, but that seems to not be how they're actually all used. For example, atl.aero is some consulting firm, not Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. --Delirium (talk) 10:23, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
- According to information.aero the airports have missed the boat (so to speak):
Last date to apply for a .aero ID for a reserved 3 letter airport code is November 24, 2008.
.aero ID requests for reserved 3 letter airport codes submitted after November 24, 2008 may not be processed in time for registration as a reserved name before December 1, 2008.
Beginning 15:00 UTC on December 1, 2008, unclaimed 3 letter airport codes will be released for registration. These will now be available to any member of the aviation community. 3 letter codes that have already been registered or which cannot be registered due to contractual obligations between SITA and ICANN will not be released as part of this process.
Registrars can submit registrations for .aero reserved name with the respective .aero IDs until 14:44UTC on December 1, 2008.
