Kansas City: Prepared to get screwed
Yes, we're about to be screwed, Kansas Citians. Wait for it.
The big, main story on the front page of the Star today tells it:
Terminal A is the likely destination of the new KCI
Aviation director tells the City Council the preferred choice is to build a new all-in-one terminal there.
For reasons that only appeal to airport authorities, security companies and airline companies, our beloved Kansas City International Airport (MCI) is still, still being considered for total demolition and replacement.
Sure, it's convenient. Sure, we like it and sure, it will be hugely, hugely wasteful, expensive and senseless to tear the whole thing down and build an entire new one but that's just what our own airport authority wants to do.
Screw you people.
Screw your opinions and preferences.
We're getting a new airport terminal whether we like it or not.
Those ultra-convenient drop-offs and pick-ups we've always enjoyed?
They'll be gone.
The functional buildings and functionality of the airport? 86'ed.
