Know Your Airport Codes

So normally when I book flights I know the airport codes and just book that way.  You know AMS is Amsterdam, CDG is Charles de Gaulle which is Paris.  Well my mom was flying to Daytona and I was booking her.  Well I booked her on the Daytona flight and for some reason the flight got delayed.  Well I called the travel hotline and asked them to rebook her.  Well I found out while making this change that I had actually booked her for Dayton Ohio (DAY) not Daytona Beach (DAB).  Ooops.   Thankfully I was able to book her to Orlando (MCO) instead.  Which ended up being a nightmare for her.  The weather was pretty bad and the flight to Orlando kept getting delayed.  When we fly as non-revs we automatically get pushed to the next flight well I as watching the flights and she wasn’t pushed to the next flight.  Her name just disappeared entirely.  Thankfully she was able to get listed on the next flight and did end up getting to Orlando though it was almost 2am by the time she got here.  Had I known my airport codes I would have had her fly to Orlando first thing in the morning.  Which may have been quieter since she was flying on the Mickey express with all the kids.
