Save KCI: What’s The Difference between 28.8 and 3.63?
"Some background: Recently, the Kansas City Business Journal ran a front page article entitled, “Airport Power Rankings: How Modern and Convenient is KCI?” Their answer was a bottom-third ranking and a D+ grade. Curious as to who ranked better and worse, I noticed St. Louis, who we are told is taking all of our non-stop flights, ranked 4th from the bottom and 11 places below KCI with a grade of D. More astounding though, I noted the top two airports in the U.S. according to this ranker, and the only two to earn an “A”, are Atlanta and Washington National. Yes, I’m serious. They actually printed that.
"Of course, anyone who has ever flown to either would immediately question what went into this ranker. So I checked. If you click the link above, you’ll see they looked at parking rates, public transportation, free wi-fi, etc. They also looked at TSA wait times. Knowing that our short wait times would have brought our ranking up, I looked to see what it was. The ranker said 28.8 minutes. I’ve flown out of KCI 100+ times. My longest wait ever was less than that on a Saturday before Christmas while checking golf clubs. My average curb to gate time is 5 minutes or less. Moreover it showed Atlanta, yes Atlanta, with an average wait time of 7.38 minutes! Nearly 4x faster than KCI. Go ahead, I’ll wait for you to stop laughing . . ."
