Ahh, the junk that some people put into OSM...

http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:icao

icao= tags should contain precisely 4 uppercase A-Z characters. Not cryllic. Not unicode. Not essays about how you hope to discover the airport's code.

I agree but there are so many OSM tags missing like fitness_center, gym, delicatessen... I think app for mobiles like MapStalt mini have done a better job than openstreetmap.org although it is still really poor as well. Where can I suggest more OSM tags to be added? It really sucks!

AleHop72 have you searched the wiki?

http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Project_of_the_week/2011/May_04 gyms
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:shop%3Ddeli delicatessen shop
Fitness centre might be : http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:leisure%3Dsports_centre (it really depends on what do you mean by fitness centre).

What you don't find in a wiki might be still already in use! Use http://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/ to search through all tags that are used.
