Of course, much the same comment could be made about Hiroshima.
Not sure if making attending IETF meetings as difficult as
possible is a winning strategy.
My impression is that the IAOC and its predecessors have been
repeatedly told "near a major airport with good international
connections and multiple carriers". I assume that they have
considered that factor among others when selecting sites, but
often concluded that it is less important than other concerns (I
note that, in the case of Vancouver vs Quebec, they made an
attempt at asking).
It seems to me that, if the community doesn't like the way that
tradeoff is being made, it needs to make the importance of this
consideration much more clear.
