Why not bring this back as well?
It’s so much better than its replacement. And look, they already changed the Wikipedia!
Btw, the powers that be do realize that Hollywood-Burbank has to be hyphenated for that ridiculous airport non-name, don’t they? Otherwise what’s it’s actually saying is that this is Burbank’s Hollywood. Big difference.
Hey, look at our new airport! It’s Hollywood Burbank! Not that hill Burbank where all the snobs live.
Are people really this stupid and illiterate nowadays? It’s about Hollywood and Burbank. Not a subset of either. So it has to be hyphenated. Hollywood’s not a modifier of Burbank, and there’s no such thing or place as “Hollywood Burbank.”
The crowd in the late 60s at least knew what to do with a hyphenate back when they named it this the first time. These people now are careless as hell, as well as dishonest and evasive to boot about what the real name of the place is.
Still trust them with that “replacement” terminal?
They didn’t know any better, did they? All that $$$ consultancy:
AIRPORT AUTHORITY SELECTS “HOLLYWOOD BURBANK” AS NEW BRAND IDENTITY FOR BOB HOPE AIRPORT
Hollywood Burbank Brand to Be Used for Marketing Purposes; Airport’s Legal Name Will Remain Bob Hope Airport
BURBANK, Calif., May 3, 2016 — On Monday, May 2, the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority selected “Hollywood Burbank Airport” as the new marketing brand identity for Bob Hope Airport. The Hollywood Burbank brand was chosen for its strong
geographic recognition among travelers and will be used to market the Airport to passengers, particularly those who live east of the Rocky Mountains. The Airport’s legal name will remain Bob Hope Airport.
“We believe the Hollywood Burbank branding identity will let passengers know that they have more than one airport choice when they fly into the Los Angeles Basin,” said Airport Authority President Frank Quintero. “The City of Burbank is known as the Media Capital of the World and we want to promote its proximity to popular centers of entertainment.”
There has to be a hyphen. Otherwise it’s stupid, meaningless, and misleading. It doesn’t look cool, it just looks illiterate and confusing. People are gonna go, “What’s Hollywood Burbank?”
