Re: OFFICIAL - New KCI Terminal

Has anyone heard any talk of how the switch over to the new terminal will occur? This came up in conversation the other day and everyone was curious about the logistics of something like this. Overnight change all at once is what I remember reading Don't the planes just pull up to a different build...

Re: KCI Flight Schedule Adjustments

I’m on a Delta flight from Portland to Seattle this afternoon. As it’s a regional jet, I gate-checked my bag and noticed that both of the people in front of me had KC as their final destination. I commented on that to the gate agent, so she checked - *40* people on this flight are going to KC. That...

Re: KCI Flight Schedule Adjustments

Aer Lingus launching Cleveland. Good for them. One less competitor to deal with in our efforts to get BA. Its just between us and IND. I still think it could end up being Aer Lingus for us once they get A321XLRs. Im just not sold on BA moving all the quickly. They also could bypass KC, Indy, Cincy ...

Dublins new 2nd runway is going to open up quite a few possibilities for future direct US flights to Ireland
And the A321LR/XLR. I think once the XLR starts getting delivered it really is going to open up routes around Europe from US smaller markets

Re: KCI Flight Schedule Adjustments

Do legacy airlines create layover flights from non hub cities? MCI would be a great spot for some hub to hub flights with a layover in MCI, i have seen people fly ORD-DFW on AA with a layover in MCI but with the new airport they should make this as a greater opportunity and it would make for a grea...

Re: OFFICIAL - New KCI Terminal

I've always been of the opinion. Feel free to go all local for sit down restaurants. Names people know for fast/fast casual. A bit of an exception to this if it is very obvious what they will have. For example, if there is a local chipotle type place, fine, people will be able to order something sim...

Re: KCI Flight Schedule Adjustments

Saw on a.net Air Canada is cutting Toronto to Kansas City from November-April. Milwaukee and Hartford to Toronto cut also. Hopefully it’s just temporary and it does come back next summer.

Re: Breeze Airways

It ended up sitting here for 3 days. Maybe they needed some kind of work done on it. Or it was a cheap place to park it. I’m pretty sure it has zero do do with service coming here.

LCC’s are the most impacted by high fuel prices
I always thought Detroit was a weird route for a ULCC from here

Re: OFFICIAL - New KCI Terminal

I think some of you need to rent a car at KCI and you might have some compassion here and want to see visitors to KC have a little better experience. I rent cars everywhere and KC has one of the worst setups. The shared and overcrowded buses, having to wait in the middle of a roadway median with li...

Re: OFFICIAL - New KCI Terminal

Seriously, are you joking? What's your beef? Almost all of the concessions are local brands that will likely be more expensive than conventional chains. It'll be nice to have a couple well known standbys. I would rather have Starbucks, McD, etc. but yes I am serious Id rather throw out annie anns f...

Most are placeholders that will change a bunch though. Legacies just now are finalizing Nov/Dec schedules.

Re: KCI Flight Schedule Adjustments

Not a major change but JetBlue updated their schedule in November and it looks like the routes are changing to an E190 from the A220.
