Florida is easier to say than Foxtrot.
A lot easier.
One can potentially copy it better, too.
At least if you have some R in the FloRida.

Bravo is OK to most, I think.
At least if you use some R in the bRavo.

The target of the person at the other end is clear:
In case of a possible misunderstanding, the other end solicites your
feedback to correct the call if it happens to be wrong in any way.
