Kansas City Single-Terminal Airport Fact Check: Looks Like Branson Isn't Going To Steal Airline Biz As Southwest Takes Off



An important fact regarding Kansas City area airline biz . . .

CBS: Southwest Airlines to Cease Branson Operations

News-Leader: Southwest Airlines to pull out of Branson; letter to airport's bondholders seeks their input on next step

OzarksFirst: Southwest Airlines to Cease Operations at Branson Airport


Now . . . Why is this important? Because Kansas City politicos used threats that Branson would take Kansas City airline biz as party of their reasoning to build start building a pricey new airport plan worth BILLIONS.

So, this is an important development . . .



Just don't ask Council Dude Russ Johnson about it.

All you need to do is read Johnson's twitter and it's totally obvious to any intelligent thinking person what an arrogant fucking prick and mental midget he is.

"Road Rage Johnson". How can you forget that one?

It's funny.

If I search hard for any proof that anyone in Kansas City was worried that Branson was going to steal business from Kansas City, the only hits I get are from YOU.

So with only you saying it, with no names or attribution to back it up, I can only conclude that YOU think that, and not anybody else.

It's funny.

Why then, is Kansas City still paying the buffoon Johnson, to serve on the Council?? Fire his dumb ass!!

Branson could actually benefit from a light rail with dedicated infrastructure. They have tourists eight months out of the year, and one really long, congested strip. It takes an hour or more to park at Silver Dollar City.

A streetcar wouldn't help though. It'd just be a nuisance and a waste of money.

Whoever created that account is hilarious.

Branson's day is over. In 5 years it will start to go back to being hillbilly dogpatch. Nobody goes there any more. How many "God-Jesus-flagwaving-American-Bible-Apple pie" variety shows are people going to pay to see? Seen 'em once...that's enough.

I bet those chicks in that picture could do a dead stick landing if they had to. Fasten your seatbelts it is going to be a wild ride.
