TKC WARNING!!! NEW KCI CONSTRUCTION CUTS CORNERS TO KEEP COSTS DOWN!!! KANSAS CITY SINGLE-TERMINAL AIRPORT WILL BE SMALLER GLASS GARBAGE!!!
Back in 2017 we warned readers about the tragic reality of "glass & plastic" New KCI reality.
As the new structure takes shape, here's more confirmation that TKC READERS WERE 100% CORRECT in their skepticism regarding the project . . .
"There is some concern that Edgemoor, in an effort to hold down the price, is really starting to cut some corners on the design . . . There is an expectation that the terminal will be some grand 21st century model for the world. Someone needs to tamp down those expectations because Edgemoor is going for the cheapest options."
Accordingly . . .
TKC RULES KANSAS CITY LOW EXPECTATIONS AND ONCE AGAIN WE WARN THAT NEW KCI IS GOING TO BE SMALL GLASS & PLASTIC GARBAGE!!!
The punchline here is that the downsized airport is also running over budget and behind schedule. So KC is paying big bucks for a disappointing facility that isn't nearly as nice as what locals were promised.
Moreover, this FAIL doesn't belong solely to the airlines. In the end, the carriers are simply paying their lease agreements and KCI is a public resource owned by the people of Kansas City that has been wrecked by empty election rhetoric and a continued lack of accountability by City Hall.
