TKC SUNDAY MUST READ!!! INSIDERS FEAR UPCOMING KANSAS CITY NEW AIRPORT LISTENING SESSIONS ARE RIGGED!!!



The struggle to convince the public that Kansas City needs a new single-terminal airport is now in full swing.

As our blog community noted previously . . . So-called "listening sessions" are the new hotness and persuasive tactic.

However . . .

CHECK THIS KICK-ASS KANSAS CITY INSIDER FEAR THAT THE KANSAS CITY AIRPORT LISTENING SESSIONS ARE NOTHING BUT A PROPAGANDA TOOL TO PUSH THE CITY HALL SINGLE-TERMINAL AGENDA!!!

Northland media dude Kevin Koster actually sat through dozens of airport meetings in order to participate and report on the process. Here's a well-informed take:

Save KCI: Who's Doing The Listening?

Money line . . .

"In light of the City’s history of controlling and directing airport conversations, I think it’s important that their presentation for these listening sessions be made public before the sessions begin, affording those who wish to challenge the content a chance to do so in hopes of a more honest outcome. For example, there might be a statement that, “The airlines offered to pay for a new terminal” when they did not. Or, “The airlines told the Aviation Committee that they would not add anymore non-stop flights.” This statement is actually true but they’ve added 5-10 since they made it. Obviously, the Business Journal’s recent claim of a 28.8 minute average security wait is easily included in a presentation just like it was at a recent Platte County EDC meeting, But it has since been discredited by TSA themselves and should not be a part of the conversation. Raising these issues at a listening session is counterproductive for everyone . . ."

And, as the "listening sessions" approach . . . What we're seeing is a hype campaign underway and not a real effort engage in a REAL CONVERSATION with the Kansas City.

You decide . . .

This is Sly's legacy we're talking about. Much to important to leave to the public or the voters.

Discussion? that's not really the way we do things in KC. We stuff ballot boxes and have secret votes. That's the way Kcmo has worked for almost 100 years. Too late to change now.

Southwest has two security gates. One has 4 scanners the other has 2.
How does a single terminal change this equation.
The lines don't get shorter.
They aren't hiring more TSA? no.
They claim a single terminal will be more efficient but how? The math is the same.

I'd rather have the airport in KS so i don't have to dodge bullets on I-49 coming from Harrisonville.

I'm predicting that instead of adding more flights out of KCI, or any other airport, airlines will be merging and cutting flights. We were never able to fill all the gates at KCI, so I doubt a new terminal will change that.

The new airport decision will not be left in our hands, however.

Listening sessions. It sounds so democratic. You'd almost think the decisions haven't already been made. If only that were true.
