New KCI In Doubt Amid COVID Christmas Weekend Cancellations

The plague has changed airline travel forever.

Now . . . 


We'd all like to believe holiday wishes about a "return to normal" but the world has changed amid the pandemic and there's no indication that time will ever start moving backward. 

Accordingly . . . 

Airline traffic simply isn't going to be as convenient as we remember. At least not any time soon. Inflation could impact the airlines to an even grater extent. And all of this change raises valid questions about the New KCI strategy of using a new airport as a tourist destination. 

What's unfortunate is that Kansas City is already neck deep in sketchy financing for a facility that was questioned and sold to voters under false pretenses. 

Meanwhile, the d-bags who currently run the KCI airport have this blog blocked on Wi-Fi because real journalism accompanied by swimsuit & lingerie hotties is the only news that really matters. 

Even worse . . .

New KCI was configured for big airlines and herding customers close together for maximum efficiency. As COVID now looks never-ending and endemic . . . The New KCI up-close & personal facility should inspire serious questions about safety. Or, at least, we're getting yet another hint that we'll be wearing masks and forced to share health information FOREVER if we'd like to fly.

Now, more locals are wondering what we bought and how this town will sustain a profit in a world of quickly evolving transit options & telecommuting alternatives.
