Leave it alone and let Johnson County have the regional airport.

This article Is full of new (false) information.

According to the article, "The rebuild was shot down by downtown Kansas City residents in a vote as they cited that they liked the current terminal for its convenience and fears of increasing taxes and airfare."

"The airlines joined the mix and in a charge spearheaded by the airport’s top carrier Southwest, who said they would fully pay for the new $964 million terminal and parking garage."

Kansas is so broke it couldn't even buy the needed land.

8:25, I noticed the same thing. There has been no vote on the airport--city officials are too afraid they'd lose.

Johnson County would be a much smarter place for an airport and I bet they can get it right the first time. Also the best way to clean house on KCI - just hire new people from the ground up and shake the money wasters.

johnson would be the biggest NIMBY cat fight ever seen. there won't be a major commercial airport there.

it's a bluff or a pipedream, depending on who's talking about it.

Update KCI, dammit. It's so obviously the right course.

Use the savings on other infrastructure.

KCI is the easiest to use airport in the world, from a world traveler ten times over.
