If I had to guess, are they old codes from before there was a 3-letter standard? Did they just plop an "x" at the end of the old ones because it was quick, easy, and didn't have to re-insert those cities into the "logical" 3-letter race/competition?And this even though he never got around to explaining the Xs in LAX and PDX.
My grandpa used to have a 2-digit phone number prefix, and at one point they went to three. And to do it, they added a 9 in the front. But his old prefix was 11. So his new prefix was 911. I'll note, though, that this was just a historic curiosity as it was decades before "911" became a thing, so there were no issues at the time, and it was replaced be a new prefix eventually before there was any conflicts.
