TKC MONDAY MUST READ!!! SAVE KCI: VOTERS DESERVE BETTER!!!



A Kansas City blogger and active participant in new airport discussions for nearly five years offers an insider perspective on the new single-terminal debate that's a lot like the old single-terminal debate.

To wit . . .

CHECK THIS EPIC FACT CHECK OF NEW KANSAS CITY SINGLE-TERMINAL AIRPORT HYPE AND ADVERTING FROM AN EXPERT ON BOTH SUBJECTS!!!

Remember that we talked about the website last week. . . The blogger seems impressed with the new campaign but not the dearth of information on what the new airport will and won't actually deliver . . .



Checkit:

Save KCI: We Can Do Better Than This

Money line:

This reminds me way too much of the vague “trust me it will be great” generalities we heard 4 years ago. You may be 100% correct and we need a single terminal yesterday, but please be specific for those who have been trained these past 4 years to be skeptical of the stated reasons.

How much increased access and to where? The airlines have added several domestic non-stops and at least one international non-stop flight since the 2016 meeting when they said they wouldn’t. Perhaps they’ll indeed add even more with a new terminal. But how many and to where? Even an estimate is better than “build it and they will come.”

You decide . . .

Some very well put together and honest statements and questions.

The past few decades Kansas City has a proven track record of hurrying out and building something just to say we did it without ever getting any real un-biased input or letting the public who have to pay for it all to have a say.

People go to airports to fly somewhere and want to get through the terminal to the airplane as quickly and conveniently as possible.
The airlines want to fill as many seats as possible on each airplane and select the size of the plane according to the market.
Flight destinations are added if the airlines decide they can meet objective number two.
The number of flights, number of destinations, and size of the airplanes has NOTHING to do with the terminal.
Repeating the same nonsense over and over again does nothing but insult the intelligence of the flying public and voters.
This whole fiasco has become an endless game of "chase the rationale".
It's embarrassing and has made a laughing stock of Sly and the gang who've tried to bamboozle the public.
KCMO is a world class city.
Third World.

Suck it up Kansas Shittians! Sly will have what he wants, exactly as he wants it. If you don't like it try putting the remote control down on election day and vote. The cronies at city hall rely on the fact that you wont.

There are two reasons airlines add flights: passengers and gate availability! You need both for an airline to consider bringing anymore flights to a city. That's why We must control the gates and keep the availability attractive to potential airlines.

Last Sunday's New York Times (Business Section) had an article titled "Eight Days in the Middle Seat," by Sarah Lyall.

Ms Lyall points out that with airlines requiring people to get to the airport hours ahead of their flight departures, airport food is big business and airlines generally have revenue-sharing arrangements with food vendors.

Keep that in mind when you hear we need a new terminal so we can have more food choices. What you're hearing is the greedy airlines going after more money.

Was at the airport yesterday and noticing cosmetic deterioration all over. Looks like a deliberate effort to make voters think the airport is crumbling when in reality the original structures would outlast anything built today.

who goes to the airport to eat or shop?

frequent flyers and a majority of flyers iverall just want to get in and on their way as conveniently as possible.

KCI is best of twenty airports we've been in this year as far as convenience.

as to rock-and-roll, that could be a great idea: build a complex near kci with a casino and entertainment venue with a resort hotel.

connect it to kci with a schuttle.
