TKC MUST SEE!!! TKC BLOG COMMUNITY MYTH-BUSTS KANSAS CITY NEW AIRPORT QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS AMID RAMPANT CITY HALL ELECTIONEERING!!!



Tonight we offer a look at propaganda from City Hall television that's basically serving to promote the new airport despite very clear rules about "electioneering" by city employees in municipal elections.

Behind the scenes, tax fighters are complaining about so many KCMO resources being used to serve up City Hall new airport promotion at a bunch of local cocktail parties, coffee chat groups and lunching lady gatherings . . . Sadly, we don't really care about the antics of the local civic social scene.

HOWEVER, video evidence is right up our alley and offers an opportunity for fact checking tonight . . .

CHECK OUR RESPONSES TO CITY HALL HYPE VIDEO PUSHING TO THE NEW AIRPORT!!!

Feel free to offer even better responses than ours in the comments . . .


Everybody Loves Freebies!!!



What do the airlines think about a new single terminal?

Newsflash - Everybody loves free stuff, even huge corporations. If somebody wanted to share BILLIONS of dollars with you . . . You might be willing to lend your support as well.

Not As Much Money In Remodeling . . . 



Why can't we renovate the airport instead of building a new one?

A Kansas City contradiction and just a bit of local gaslighting targeting the electorate - We're gonna do more with less space??? The scam here is that airlines will be free to charge more with fewer competitors in the new configuration.

Will ticket prices go up?

Anybody who says airline prices aren't going to steadily increase over time, as they have since the advent of the flight is simply looking into your face, lying and insulting everyone you ever met. Just a bit of news proof:

CNBC: Higher ticket fares coming your way due to major US airport expansions

To be fair, higher prices are inevitability no matter what happens with the airport.

The Sordid Topic Of Kansas City Coin . . . 



Will KC taxpayers have to pay to finance new terminal?

For those who really believe that locals won't pay for a new airport one way or another, TKC is also selling the Paseo Bridge.

You decide . . .

THIS is how Sly is going to bankrupt KC.

The hype is real and funded by more than a million dollars.

Hope Kansas City doesn't' fall for these cheap lies.

The only way KC avoids at least one if not several expensive lawsuits is to vote no.

So if there is a terrorist attack on the new KCI, who pays to rebuild it? Isn't the city of KCMO self-insured?
The airlines may be financing ONE rebuild, but What If??
All they have to do is say--hey, if you want us to fly here any more, build a new one.

This is especially concerning since a single terminal with passengers herded like cattle all into one vulnerable pen--is a much "richer target" for terrorists, rather than the spread out over three terminals.

If we want and expect MORE DIRECT FLIGHTS, any third grader would tell you you will need MORE GATES, NOT FEWER.

One of the most troubling CFRG white papers is about Southwest begged for a Pilot's Lounge, equivalent to 4 gates, to have pilots on standby. KCI said no, even tho we have an entire EMPTY TERMINAL! That's like having an entire wing of one's home that could be a guest room.

When KCI and the city of KCMO said no to Southwest (our biggest customer--half our current flights) they turned to St. Louis, who gave them exactly what they wanted.

The City of KCMO negotiates about as crudely and ineffectively as President Trump. Sly James and Troy Schulte are narcissists who both need to fly off into the sunset...on a one way flight to Cedar Rapids, which is about as world class as they really are.

Press on, vote NO. We can do this. Anything will be better than this little piggy.

So, Tony, when are are you going to post any actual facts?

You know, things backed up by any EVIDENCE you may have to refute the city's arguments, not empty rhetoric.

^^^ Fact - Paid airport consultants love the new airport!

Does Burns & McDouche have anything to do with it?

10:53, tony isn't interested in facts. Just like how he was convinced Jack the Ripper killed that girl in the river, he thinks KCI is the bees knees and doesn't need any facts to back this dated, small-minded opinion. Ask the people who work at the airport what they think. Ask frequent fliers, pilots, business people. Don't ask grandma who flies every 5 years or the johnsons who drive down from Iowa to fly to Disney or Vegas. As for ticket prices it's more a function of market and fuel costs, but what do I know I have an aeronautics degree from Embry-Riddle. Google it.
