So what airport codes are you dealing with
KMCI - Mid Continent International in the US (ICAO airport ID)
This is what you would use on a flight plan
Internally the US still uses MCI to mean Mid Continent International for
flight plans but will accept either.
If you want to file an ICAO flight plan the K is required.
Now there's also IATA who refer to London, Heathrow as LHR which most
travellers will know where ICAO refer to it as EGGG
