Old folks like me still call it Saigon and SGN is still the three-letter airport code. Don't call it Ho Chi Minh among the Viets in North America. 

What you call it, is not at all important. There is no city with the name Saigon anymore. They have flights to Ho Chi Minh City, though.

Regarding the code, that´s just a three-letter code as you say, and is just something identifying the airport on an international level.

Why would you not call a city by it´s real name, just because you are, or are among, veterans in North America? USA has no reason nor any authority to engage in a war with Vietnam anyway.

The Vietnamese dweller in HCMC may beg to differ.

 

"The former name Saigon is still widely used by many Vietnamese, especially in informal contexts. Generally, the term Saigon refers only to the urban districts of Ho Chi Minh City."

 

Do your own wiki.

No need for any Wiki. If you would have done the same, you would know there are 19 urban districts and 5 rural district that binds together the Ho Chi Minh City. Out of the reason Saigon is one of the districts it can no longer be the city name. It was Saigon up until 1976, when it was lawfully changed to Ho Chi Minh City. 

If it´s still widely used has no point. The only point that makes is that people do not keep up with the changes, which is extremely common and visible in this forum.

I call it Saigon on my frequent business trips there because 99.9% of regional taxi and minivan services call it exactly that. Even they can appreciate the linguistic economies of two syllables over five.

 

Can you spare us your opinions on the American War? Thanks.

The reason why they call it Saigon, is because they are using the name of the district you, probably, usually reside in on your business trips. That due to it´s the place where you find the old part of Ho Chi Minh City and most of the entertainment.

Regarding the spare thing. Well, I guess that´s a little late now. Isn´t it?
