Well, TYO-OSA might be a smart designation for the whole market, as there
are ex-NRT and ex-KIX flights around. The old Osaka airport, Itami, uses
ITM as a three-letter code.

The high-volume domestic market (and reasonably high frequency I believe)
is HND-ITM, then, for the flights between Itami and Haneda.

On a similar note, the characters for Hane-da literally mean "wing field",
as in the wings of birds. The kanji even resembles two wings. Cool, ne?
