In Soviet Russia, American Airlines ticket buys you!

Maybe it’s all this talk of Olympic boycotts, or maybe Rocky IV was just on cable again. Whatever the reason, the folks over at American Airlines are in stuck in Cold War mode, as evidenced by their “Airport Lookup” menu. According to the Ph.D.’s in the Geography department at American, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics is still kickin’– and even better, you can fly there!

Yugoslavia also finds its way onto the list, but surprisingly Austria-Hungary and the Ottoman Empire were left off.

The list of “countries” also features about a dozen places I’ve literally never heard of, like Guernsey, Jersey, Mayotte, and something called the Wallis and Futuna Islands. Apologies to all of our readers in those territories, but your existence is news to me.
