KANSAS CITY ELECTION CONSEQUENCES: NEW SINGLE-TERMINAL AIRPORT NEXT UP FOR MAYOR SLY & CORPORATE CRONIES!!!



After last night's big win . . . The next item confronting Kansas City is a return to a familiar conversation and a topic the public has overwhelmingly rejected.

To wit . . .

POWERED BY AN EPIC BAD DEBT WIN LAST NIGHT . . . INSIDERS FEAR MAYOR SLY AND HIS CORPORATE SUPPORTERS HAVE TARGETED THE AIRPORT FOR DESTRUCTION IN FAVOR OF AN UNPOPULAR SINGLE-TERMINAL IDEA!!!

So, say goodbye to curbside convenience as advocacy by way of Twitter will rule the local discourse.



The only bright side here . . . Before we give the airport the kiss-off, there is a great deal of opposition to this effort on the Council that trusts voters to make the right decision . . . Which may or may not be a smart move.

Either way, it's gonna be a good time . . .



You decide . . .

let the games begin.

this will be different because of strong popular feelings (against).

Last night reinforced to me why streetcar/airport rejection should be taken seriously. KC literally has no problem taxing itself to pay for things. So if the electorate shuts something down, then it likely is not a good idea.

If we want a new airport, we will have it. haven't you learned anything yet?

If you fly KCI monthly (or more) as I do, then you know we need a new airport. It is fucking dump. A new airport will lead to more flights and jesus, the ability to get a damn drink or food behind security.

Thank you 10:12AM, FINALLY someone with perspective and common sense. It's the local knuckle-draggers who fly once or twice a year if that that think KCI is "great". Get out more and you will see it lacks in very basic necessities inside security. I'm not talking a Brooks Brothers or a Cinnabon I'm talking restrooms, places to sit, and in case of a delay viable, real food options. It's beyond pathetic even compared to other cities our size (Indianapolis comes to mind- they didn't have to have a new airport but they got one and it's a great facility and still super convenient).

save kci!

add bathrooms for $25 million, not $2 billion.

They have food and drinks, if need be. Most people don't go to the airport to dine out, so basic is fine.

The Mexican place is pretty good if one has time to sit down.

It would be possible to build a couple of other restaurants over the gates for something way less than the cost of a whole new airport.

Personally, I don't care.

Regular folks and frequent flyers like the airport the way it is. They'll vote to keep it.

They know that a new terminal would mean 15-30 minute or more wait times and no pickup-dropoff convenience, like at new airports constructed for airlines' convenience.

^^^What you must understand is that airports ARE constructed for the airlines convenience and not the customer. The airlines run the show. If they all want a new airport KC will oblige them. This IS going to happen and no amount of negativity from blog posters will change that. One more thing you must consider is that your opposition doesn't matter. Especially in KC. The die has already been cast.

I'm for a new airport -- in JOHNSON COUNTY. They are they only cry-babies who complain about no shops, no restaurants, etc. JoCo, please start working on where you would like YOUR airport. Perhaps on the Johnson/Miami County line?

To all those who think they fly a lot......I've flown more and from much better cities I've lived in. MCI is a not a connection airport. Yes it is a dump, but you show up less than an hour before your flight unless you're a moron. There are no lounges because you don't need them and there is no demand. You hit the lounge at IAD or EWR or one of the normal cities before you head out. KC is fly over country. Most of the space at your airport is unused. Way too many terminals. It's so funny how the stupid names of the streets out there are international cities too. Like you could ever take a direct flight from KC to one of those cities. Jesus get you a fucking sprite and wait 30 minutes for the gate to open. If you fly a lot you fucking board right away and bypass the vacationers. There's never a security line there and you just bypass the scrubs if your elite status. This is a simple airport for a simple town. You do not need more. What a joke. Look at where people are moving....not KC. You dumb asses are going to tax yourselves to death.
