TKC EXCLUSIVE AND BREAKING NEWS!!! CONFUSION OVER CONCESSIONS HITS KANSAS CITY NEW AIRPORT!!!



Better amenities for Kansas City travelers was the main selling point of the new airport but now details about the upcoming developments and opportunities have been scarce for aspiring vendors.

To wit . . .

IN A RECENT MEETING ABOUT NEW KCI CONCESSIONS . . . AIRPORT VENDORS WERE ANGERED BY A LACK OF DETAIL OR ANY VIABLE PLAN FOR NEW AIRPORT BIZ!!!



Here's the word from City Hall insiders about the process that is basically, just as we predicted, on hold until after the election:

"They're not giving any information. We want to know about square footage, costs, what the the space is going to look like. Nothing. Just the same sketches they've shown us for months and a lot of happy talk. Nobody has time to show up to all of these pointless meetings. If we're making progress on the new airport, we need more information about what's going to be required of vendors and the resources that will be available to them. So far there's nothing."

Unfortunately . . .



What we do know for sure is that rents at the new facility will increase and those prices will likely be handed down to travelers who will be confronting rising prices at airports overall.

Developing . . .

Edgemoor's first airport looks like a mess. Most of us who watched this screwed up process unfold could have told you as much. Now it will hurt more local businesses.

New KCI = Half as much space for double the price.

Thanks Sly!

Maybe they are only getting “paid” National vendors... those willing to pay huge colossal fees to be able to sell the public:

1. $9 cup of coffe
2. $5 candy bars
3. $10 beer
4. $25 shoe shine
5. $4 pack of gum
6. $12 hamburger
7. $32 ribs
8. $7 French fries
9. $6 bottled water
10. $75 round steak

Don’t think this won’t happen?
Then join the Flat Earth Society.

Airport is a joke but it's not just Sly who should take the blame, Jolie played a big part in creating this disaster.

Jolie Justus got us into this mess, the only way outo is 7 billion dollars and a massive amount of debt.

Is the Chik-Fil-A ban already in effect?

Astaroth said...

Taxpayers need to compare what $4 billion is getting them for an airport to what $1.3 billion got Singapore for a new airport. The difference is like the difference between night and day.

There hasn’t been anything but sketches since this fiasco started, Edgemoor is probably waiting for sLIE to give them another fifty million for architectural drawings, we’ve already given them at least 150 million and all that’s produced Is pictures. sLIE has fucked this whole thing up so very badly and he’s been planning this for eight years. We be’s one smart city alright! Hahahahaha!

I’m with 5:30, lets see how stupid and petty kcmo is when it comes to chick fil a, but then again the airport won’t belong to kcmo, it'll belong to the airlines.

How much more embarrassing can sLIE and clowncil make this thing? No wonder people and businesses are leaving, joke of the country.

No chance the mess will belong to the airlines. Not a one of them would sign on to this fiasco for more than a couple years, with easy outs in all cases as insurance. It's on us. I wish it could be just on the fools who voted for it. But, it would've never passed then

^^^ agree with 9:15. This mess belongs to Kansas City and we'll be paying for it for years to come.

Sly's curse, not a legacy.

If Jolie Justus gets away with this corrupt fraud that is the New KCI, then the voters of KCMO have only themselves to blame.

Check out the massive contributions Jolie is getting from KCI contractors and consultants!!

Why is Roshann Parris getting paid a dime for hanging around the KCI project.

Carville KC said...

The airport is Jolie's Waterloo. People know she screwed this up royally and should never be allowed near an important KC project.

Hey, there better be a Go Chickn Go. That's some good bird. And the soft rolls aren't moldy like the stadium buns. Gizzards dripping hot sauce with a cold beer is tasty cowtown cuisine.
