Southwest Airlines Pressures Kansas City Politicos For New Single-Terminal Airport

Actually, the pressure is coming from both ways and critics argue the airline is seemingly working on how to design a facility to gain a competitive advantage . . . Here's follow-up on a story that KCTV5 broke last month. Take a look: Southwest Airlines urges business community to get on board for KCI single terminal

big business supporting something might not be a positive.

Kansas city desperately needs a new terminal, more than a streetcar, or convention hotel, or luxury apartments, or a bunch of other stuff. It's too bad the airport didn't happen before the public got tired of spending money.

Leave the airport the way it is. It takes 5 minutes to go from your car to the gate on a good day. One terminal will have long security lines and be inconvenient.
Who gives a shit if shopping or food choices are not great? I don't go to the airport to do either.

Caution!

Giving the airlines control of the airport is a dangerous precedent. They want to control the number of gates so they can keep competition at a minimum and increase their rates. Look at Denver. KC has enough smart engineers and architects to design and construct their own facility. We don't need people from New York or Dallas telling us how to do things!

Do you ever fly anywhere? Dozens of other airports have a few security lines that take less time than KCI. You can drop off and pick up curbside, too. These features we think are so unique to us are not. We just have an outdated airport that can't expand for growth.
