DanCon: evil back-button-breaking redirect
danb_lap: It wanted my surname and my (sekret? I don't know...) Amadeus booking code. There's also a version for mobile users, maybe WAP/WML?, but seems to be offline currently.
danb_lap: They have an 'email this itinerary to a friend in text or html' facility too. I've just requested one, to see what the formatting's like.

DanCon: "The other option is to buy the official Location ID codes from IATA; an annual subscription to the data is $2,190.00 (USD)."

JibberJim: Airports by country e.g. GB also available.
