KCATA's 2017 budget includes money to study upgrading #142 to MAX.

Hopefully it comes with ped improvements like Prospect Max. Much of this corridor has poor sidewalks, poor crossing spacing, bad sight lines for ped safety and so on. There's stops today there's absolutely no ped route.

And I say that having family that uses 142 to get to work daily.

Too early to say, but IIRC most of the MAX projects have been completed within 5 years of being proposed.

Apologies for bringing up potentially fantastical thoughts, but I'm wondering why a N Oak MAX can't run one stop north to new KCI, combining with 229 for higher frequency? A MAX station curbside at a new KCI with frequent fare-free trips to downtown servicing Prairie View or N Oak along the way - wouldn't this be a possible and good way to improve airport transit? Or are these pony thoughts?

it's possible. you'll want to rally support for that early. from what i've been told, the airport is not in the "study area".
