        In Sept 2006 Thailand moved all flights from the old 
        Don Muang airport in Bangkok to the new Suvarnabhumi
        airport (from north of Bangkok city to east of it).

                [Aside: don't pronounce the final 'i'
                   'Soo-var-na-boom' approximately
                   the 'var' rhymes with 'car' or 'bar' not 'hair'].

        The BKK airport code was moved along with all the flights.

        Sometime later, most Thai domestic flights moved back
        to Don Muang airport, it has a new airport code "DMK".
        Why that happened (flights moving back) isn't an
        appropriate topic for a PR...

        NetBSD's airport file didn't notice this change (almost
        certainly because I didn't think to inform anyone...)


        By inspection
                grep '^BKK' /usr/share/misc/airport

        Then do a google search for "BKK" to confirm this message
        if you like.

        Here's a patch.   I've left DMK as "international" as I think
        that's its name, even though it has no international flights
        remaining that I'm aware of.
