Memphis International Airport Keeps Name

Each year round Elvis week, rumours are popping up that Memphis International Airport will change it's name to 'Elvis Presley Airport'. With the recent passing of Isaac Hayes, his fanbase is asking to name the airport after him. Airport officials now responded to those rumours and denied everything. They think that the current 'Memphis' name represents the city in it's best way, honoring all the great names the city knows and have knew. It would be an impossible task picking out just one name out of all those people who may deserve it.

it doesnt really matter but how can the city of Memphis say that there is a number of people from Memphis who deserve the airport to be named after them???That city has never apreciated Elvis nor will they ever. Its a shame Elvis made that mess of a city his home.They have the World's Greatest enertainer and arguably humanitarian and they act like he was nothing to them.

Totally disagree. The Memphis Airport should have been renamed Elvis Presley Airport a long time ago. For most of the World Elvis Presley IS Memphis.
