KCI Is Starting To Show Off Its New, Sunnier, $1.5 Billion 21st Century Terminal

An enthusiastic Jade Liska stood, smiling, on an unfinished concrete subfloor Tuesday afternoon. Behind him, 25 Y-shaped supports stood unfinished, marking the entrance of what will become the new terminal at Kansas City International Airport.

That's because it IS flimsy and cheap.
Just wait for the first really good thunderstorm with hail and high winds to come through town.
Frosty!

Hey, what do you expect for 1,500 million dollars? Oh, wait. That's a lot of money...

Apparently, one and a half billion doesn't buy what it used to, especially when government bureaucrats are involved.

this is a butler building with glass, we all knew that half the money was going into certain peoples pockets. If kc is involved in anything, family and friends are getting paid.

Definitely the worst mayor and city clowncil of all time.

This will be a piece of shit airport. The modeled it after austin's airport, which had the longest fucking lines to get through the gate. It's really funny, but not surprising, how KC fucks everything up

One of the all too common Tornados of the Northland will eat that building up and spit it out! Hopefully they have accessible shelters among the downstairs baggage conveyors?

It's not suppose to be quality. Designed to need constant maintenance and repairs.

If you upsized our Osco...voilá...airport. With a great view of the parking garage. I'd love to see the window cleaning contract.

old KCI isn't so great, but not so bad either, could have been remodeled, was convenient and incredibly easy to pick someone up there, etc.

what's the point of spending a fortune on another airport when it's still way up in the northern sticks
