Thats true. Although in some instances they do change codes.

JFK in NYC was known as Idlewild Int'l until a few weeks after Kennedy's assassination in 1963. It was renamed and the code was changed to JFK.

Personally, I think DHK would be better than DHA.

Interestingly enough, I believe Canada is the only country that uses a convention with their codes, all begin with YY-, eg Toronto Pearson is YYZ.
I drop knowledge so heavy it leaves the world unbalanced, exterminating the spiritual force of all that challenge, I'm the lyrical apocalypse that crumbles the granite, replacing you as the dominant species on the planet.
