Airports you've clinched?

How do you clinch an airport? Visit every gate? Take off or land on every runway?  Using every taxiway would be quite unlikely unless you're the pilot and the ground controller cooperative.

That'll depend.  Some will say as long as they were in the airport they clinched it.  Others will say they had to get some sort of receipt to show they were in it.  And then others will claim they were there, and tell others how (great it was)(badly it sucked) based on the popular opinion of others.

That's not clinching (as highways) but collecting (as counties).

Some will say as long as they were in the airport they clinched it.

In that case, MNL, SFO, DTW, MCO, (JFK/LGA), BAG, CRK, ZAM, LGP, TPE, and the infamous YYZ. In roughly that order.

Been on every direct scheduled flight from that airport to some other airport at least once?

Nah, unless you don't consider a highway clinched unless you take every exit.

Does that mean in order to clinch the Toronto subway I have to obtain transfer tickets enter and leave the system at all 69 stations?

In that way, I have clinched MA 213, although that one's easy if you live there.

There needs to be a thread for this! (If there isn't already).  I've actually wanted to do this along 295 here in NJ - I've hit most of the ramps, but not all.  Same with NJ Routes 42 & 55.

For example, SidS1045 has an avatar of MA 28. It would count if you clinched MA 28. For my current avatar, you would have to clinch all of US 1.
