    Default What exactly is a "Bespoke Airport" ....

    ... and how are they different from any other airport, or a handcrafted default airport that comes with a given price tier of the simulator?

    Here you go, it would seem the work is being used 'incorrectly'?

    I have seen this word used to describe a young lady in the 1700s when the relationship was somewhere between "going steady" and engaged.
    In this context, I think they are trying to say handcrafted.

    Thank you all for your kind explanations, but I think I like this one best. As an older person it really speaks to me, as I know quite a few younger people who think they're the "bees knees", just because they've discovered within their own generation, something that's been around all along!

    I will now equate "bespoke" with "hand crafted", and "curated"... as I know millennials can't resist the sounds of those words either.

    I think this is a term that never went out of style in the UK... but maybe got resurected in North America thanks to British TV content. Specifically, from Top Gear and Grand Tour, when they would on occasion talk about EXTREMELY exclusive fancy cars. Like the Singer 911, and one insanely priced and incredibly beautiful "enhanced Jaguar" convertible whose shop name escapes me now.

    Frankly when I heard it when younger, I had no idea what it meant. And in recent years hearing it on TopGear I had to actually look up the word's meaning!
