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!!!

Watched Ruckus on the airport. Host asked Steve Rose about the possibility of airport going to Kansas. Steve Rose asked incoming Kansas Governor about possibility of airport in Kansas (just 3 weeks ago) and he said he wouldn't comment on it during the campaign, which basically he's saying that he do...

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...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

The #1 concern I’ve heard from people is what security will be like. Most people’s biggest fear is that security will be a disaster like a major city airport (I.e. Atlanta, LAX, O’Hare, etc.). They really need to give people an idea of what to expect with security. If not, people will assume the wor...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

What I've been told is that Kansas is trying to pick off an airline and build an 8-10 gate airport. Kansas Citians can put that to bed by passing this vote. If we don't, then expect Kansas to keep trying to find an airline to partner with and then go through the regulatory hurdles to make it happen.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Thanks for sharing. Good points. Denver is one of the five busiest airports in the country and flies about 50 million more people than KCI so that’s definitely not a peer airport, but the point about people’s perceptions is spot on. I’ve heard that Cerner sent an email to their employees encouraging...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

From what I've seen in the past, only 12 or 13% of KCMO residents fly once in a given year. So it's definitely a small percentage of KCI's flyers.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I'm fine with a regional airport authority. With as rough as this thing has been politically, I'm hoping they push the election to the spring now. It's going to be rough to try to mount a campaign with 45ish days left before the election when there's a large number of people that still aren't convin...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

If you read Edgemoor's proposal, they suggest redevelopment of the old terminals is a major opportunity for KCI. Link :D I think it's around page 139 of their qualification proposal. Wasn't a whole lot of meat to what they thought about a new terminal, but a couple pages worth of comments. https://...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

So what do we make of all these conflicts of interest accusations? Do we think Burns & McDonnell wasn't picked and so they're trying to cloud the legitimacy of the process? I'm trying to understand some of the different motivations here since the airlines came out backing the B&M plan. http:...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Did it strike anyone else as odd that AECOM took down their fly through video of their iconic KCI plan? Do you think they're worried about other firms ripping off their ideas? They used to have it on their web site and now it's gone.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I just don't know how B&M doesn't get picked because I don't think there's any chance the vote passes unless they're the choice. My only concern with B&M at this point is if they can design a nice enough airport. I don't have any doubt they can do a solid job, but I'd really like to see a ni...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

I liked AECOM's fly through video....really surprised B&M didn't take the time to do that. I'm certainly much more open to AECOM's plan now and it looked nicer than the few renderings we got from B&M. My only thing is I think B&M probably has to get this to have any chance of passing at ...
