Mayor & Council Claim New KCI Will Be 'World's Most Accessible' Airport Despite Kansas City Construction Nightmare Underway



Here's a look at City Hall warm fuzzies touting friendly skies for all Kansas City travelers . . .

Resolution 180367: "Expressing the Mayor’s and Council’s support for the Mayor’s Committee for People with Disabilities’ call for the new KCI terminal to be the most accessible airport in the world."

This a nice and welcomed sentiment that our blog community hopes local government can achieve.

Meanwhile . . .

- Union beef with airport construction leaders worsens.

- The current airport waiting game gives way to rising costs just like critics of the project warned.

- Expect minority hiring controversy to plague the project from start to finish.

Developing . . .

What a fuckin joke.

Airports maybe more than any other public project, should be, above all, utilitarian. This cluster fuck will destroy the ugliest, but the most functional airport in America.

We are going to dump, our loyal, loving, life long wife, for some young hottie and holy shit is it gonna cost some cash.

Sly will at least make it accessible for morbidly obese former mayors with huge fat lard asses.

Yet another shining example of the mayor and council's impeccable credibility.

This has been a cluster from day one and it is costing taxpayers millions. Team Slie will put their spin on anything just to make Slie look good. Update the current terminals and the airport will be fine. Planned lack of maintenance by the city has created the conditions of the current terminals. Slie wants 3 major items for his legacy, new airport, toy train, and high murder rate which helps keep the blight from downtown.

speaking of accessible, let's hope they have enough bathrooms, including behind security.

7:40 = Let's spend other people's money like drunken sailors!! I'm a Democrat!!! Even better, let's make white people somehow pay more than their fair share so we are "Inclusive".

Oh yeah, don't forget to hire only minorities to build it, even if they are unable to find their asses with both hands and have degrees in "Gender Studies".

Rename the airport to "Rainbow Coalition Airport". Close it down during snow storms, not because of the weather, but because white snow is racist.

Maybe Emmit Till International, or, as Mary Sanchez has suggested, Pancho Villa International. The air traffic control persons will wear sombreros like the mayor does and only "Dreamers" will be hired.

This is going to be great!!!

Sarcasm fail. Traveled every week for years thru KCI, was one of the most convenient airports ever.

^^^Yea, so don't ever update it. Piss-poor logic there dummy. Your convenience should be the driving factor..give me a break. I liked it don't change it. Well I'm embarrassed by it. So that cancels your opinion out.

Yes, convenience at an airport is important. Wow. No one could be that stupid.

I have traveled the world on business fir over 40 yesrs. KCI is the most accsesabile airport I have ever dealt with. Do some security udates, some better art and the place is more than good to go.

^^^Blah blah blah. My opinion counts & should be the only one considered. After all I have traveled the world for over 40 years! (maybe your tastes and preferences are just a tad out of date old timer) Boo hoo!

10:22 is a fatass fantasizing fruit. The only tickling he does is with his tongue on buttboiz in the BathHouse. He wants nasty gender neutral BathHouse toilets at the airport.

Only positive thing about the trolls in here hating is it keeps them off the streets and out of the real working people's way.

Patrick Smith from the “Ask a Pilot” columns lauds the convenience of the KCI airport. He groans about the urge to turn airports into glorified malls.

Can we table the discussions of the Airport till at least late 2019?

That's the earliest date that Northmoor has said they will be able to give us any estimate of what the new Airport will look like, what amenities it will have, and their first estimate of what it's going to cost.

Until then we have no Idea At All what Sly, Troy and Jolie have brought onto us. For all we know, it will have two gates or a thousand, it may or may not even have a roof, and it can cost $100 or $617,243 Billion!

What we do know is that we know nothing at all except that we are getting a replacement for KCI and we will have to pay any amount we are told to.

A Millenial posted- Thank you 7:40! How about you and your entiltled shithead friends get off your ass and quit asking everyone for everything so you can afford to fly somewhere and be there as fucked up as you are here. I could give a shit about a new airport, this city is more about fixing something that isnt broken, so you Millenials that think you are so trendy are kept happy, here is a Idea how about you PAY the cost for all of your stupid ideas!!! You dont do it in your personal life so dont expect us older people to buy into your stupid Ideas an pay for those ideas through tax dollars unless you are willing to be accountable for all of your stupid shit!! I know being a grown up isnt easy, it takes working hard and making a way for yourself on your own, it takes accountability for every action and decision one makes..... Cant wait for the Millenial reply to my comment, but I wont read it until tommorow because I have to WORK in the morning!!
