Must be something wrong with the GPS signals. Nobody can find the airport recently. Lol.

Personally, I think too many airports. If they open a new one to handle larger planes, they ought to flatly close the smaller one. That will make some people cry but that is just a personal opinion.

Better Essendon, Moorabbin, or Tullamarine than Melbourne, Florida. Then they would really have some explaining to do.

It's a brand new plane with all the new navigational bells and whistles. Again, somebody wasn't navigating.
