The good news: Tampa International Airport (TPA) is already a delightful and efficient airport, and it’s now adding a new terminal: Airside D.
The bad news: Now my favorite TPA joke is ruined — or at least it will be, when it’s completed in 2027.
The joke (which I’ve managed to pull a couple of times) goes like this:
Unsuspecting victim: I see that there’s an Airside A, C, E, and F. Why’s there no B? Or D?
Me: I don’t know about B, but an Airside D would be insane.
Unsuspecting victim: Insane?
Me: Everyone knows that…D’s nuts!
