The first annual AIRPORT WORLD CUP bracket selection show was held Saturday night (you probably did not see it on TV). The brackets are set and the competition will start soon. I thought I’d take this opportunity to provide a sneak preview at the how the airports line up against each other in the 1st round. To be impartial I simply used the publicly available ranking of airports based on passenger traffic, and simply took the first 64 airports ranked according to annual passenger traffic. The airports have been separated into 4 “Divisions”: Boeing, Airbus, Embraer and Bombardier. To keep the tournament moving along, the first round will have 2 “matches” in a poll each morning once the competition starts. Each match will be open for voting for 36 hours. This tournament will follow the same format as MilesQuest’s Airline World Cup.
