    Cool In or At?

    Hi,

    Yesterday the flight attendant said: "we're going to land at Lisbon airport" Shouldn't it be "in Lisbon airport"?

    My gut reaction was "to land at an airport." I would not dismiss "in" out of hand, though, as a possibility.

    We land at an airport, after getting off the plane we go into the terminal building, then we are in the airport.
