Re: We need a new airport!!!

What would be the best European city for a nonstop? I would say London and Paris would probably be the top 2 choices, but I think Paris will become more important with the UK leaving the EU. It makes travel easier landing in an Schengen Area country (it was one of the reasons we avoided London when...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

SWA has over half of KCI's market now so they will have a huge say in the new terminal design and I'm sure they will have first choice of where they want to be. KCI only connects 4% passengers right now, which is probably the lowest percentage in the midwest so there will be room to grow. I believe ...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

If your state doesn't touch an ocean or Great Lake, it's almost assuredly "here be dragons" territory for JetBlue. JetBlue is the air line Johnson County had been working on when there was concern we weren't going to build a new terminal in KC. So would be awesome if we could get them in ...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

How would you like to be the guy from Leawood that gave CRFG $66,000 of their $68,000? Then you lose the issue 25% to 75%?

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I voted yes already. I'm up North in Shoal Creek and it was very busy at my polling site this morning. The workers said they were surprised at how busy it had been this morning. So I don't know if a high turnout election is good or bad for a new airport?

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Good to know that they are designing it for possible future light rail. Hopefully we manage to get light rail in the terminal's lifetime :) the most likely scenario -- given who uses the airport -- is a series of coach-based express routes from two to four terminals in the region: union station/pla...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

The other really interesting thing was that only 12% of KCI fliers comes from KCMO. I knew it would be considerably less than 50% but not that low. Is this number of fliers from KCMO proper, or MO-side metro? It's always interesting to see the insane number of JOCO plates at TSC sporting events. Re...

That's pretty good. They're only supposed to be mailing people that are in the middle (not a definitive yes or no). I haven't gotten any mail at all and I'm a frequent voter. Canvassers came by my home Sunday (but I wasn't there).

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Well, CFRG did raise some money. My expectation is that they will do a huge mailer last weekend before the vote so it doesn’t give newKCI proponents a chance to respond. Kinda like you see happen during some elections for judges. I do think voters are coming around once they get the information. It...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

What do you guys think how voters skew? Last polling numbers I heard were 53% yes, 45% no. And supposedly they only poll land lines which you would think would be older voters. Do you think younger voters are more likely or less likely to support a new terminal? I feel like there’s a good push to ge...

By the way, does anyone know how to absentee vote in Clay County? I have some neighbors that want to vote for the airport, but will be gone Nov. 7.

Really good article from the Star today comparing some peer airports to KCI.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I'm pretty sure the Southwest CEO will be in town for the KCADC annual meeting Friday. I don't know if he will be presenting or not, but my guess is he'll probably be endorsing the new airport. If you've ever been to the event, it's always a big deal and they always have impressive things up their s...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Kansas is very pro business and Johnson County holds a lot of sway. If they think an airport will help bring them a bunch of business, they will be all in. Much like they developed STAR bonds to land the Kansas Speedway. There's more than a few Kansans that would love to not have to drive to Missour...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

New Century is laughable. Feasible, but laughable. First, the feds would never approve a second location for an airport in such a tiny metro. They’d never get past the first hurdle. Doesn't St. Louis have two airports? I don't know how you can be so sure of anything with a conservative state and Tr...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

He didn't just say no comment. Said it wasn't appropriate to comment on during the campaign. If Kansas didn't think there was a play to make for the airport, he would've said it's dead or not going anywhere vs. I'm not going to comment during the airport campaign.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I literally ran a half mile through O’Hare a month ago. It’s beyond comical to me that Kansas Citians would throw a fit that walking a 100-500 steps is inconvenient. This is the same group that will walk a half mile plus to park at Kauffman Stadium and not think anything of it because they can see t...
