Calicut is a very small airport compared to Chennai and Kolkata, and since the permission of big planes has been revoked, only small planes are operating for a long time now. Authorities are trying to kill Calicut Airport for the Big ''B''ies of Kochi and Kannur.

If Calicut survives all odds and is still profitable, Calicut should top the list.
