A baby was born inside an airport restroom Sunday. And the new mom named her little girl after the airport’s three-letter IATA and FAA code.
Plus, Delta reportedly asked an LAX-bound actor to get off his flight.

Baby Named After the Airport Where She Was Born
And here you thought you were an AvGeek.

The little girl’s name? Mia, after Miami International’s three-digit code, MIA.

Isn’t “Mia” a gorgeous name? And thank goodness the tyke wasn’t born at some other destinations. That could’ve been awkward.
LAX-Bound Actor Kicked Off Delta Flight
Actor-producer-“occasional professional wrestler” Stephen Amell says he asked to leave his flight to LAX before it departed Austin on Monday.
“My wife and I got into an argument Monday afternoon on a Delta flight from Austin to LA,” Mr. Amell said on Twitter. “I was asked to lower my voice and I did. Approximately 10 minutes later I was asked to leave the flight. And I did so immediately. I was not forcibly removed.
“I rebooked myself on a Southwest flight 2 hours later and traveled home without any further issue. I let my emotions get the better of me, end of story. Must be a slow news cycle.”
Mr. Amell played Oliver Queen/Green Arrow on the CW series Arrow. He’s set to star in the Starz pro wrestling drama series Heelz.
