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 . . .
Save KCI: We Can Do Better Than This
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 . . .
