Keep KCI as is
I have a new suggestion for the city officials who think we should spend $1.2 billion for a new airport. Many, many fliers who go through Kansas City International Airport talk about how easy and great it is, yet city officials feel the need to destroy that.
You are now talking about building the new terminal on the site of Terminal A, destroying Terminal B and using Terminal C as rental for business offices. Here’s a great idea.
Why not leave Terminals A and B as is and rent out terminal C? Part of the reason we don’t have enough equipment for security scanning now is that the use of the airport has decreased.
This should be put to a vote of the citizens of Kansas City and not left to the few men and women on the City Council.
KCI is a great airport. Leave it that way. Just because you have a brand new sparkling terminal doesn’t mean more passengers are going to use it.
Kansas City Exhibit B: KCI Traveler's dream
I travel about 50 percent of the time in my work and see a lot of airports. Kansas City International Airport is one of the most efficient airports in the country. To think of changing to be like other airports such as Atlanta, Detroit and Charlotte is a poorly thought-out concept and a huge waste of money. You have quick access and a great shuttle system to parking lots, compared with the nightmares of airports like those in New Jersey, Atlanta and California.
Why change something that works great only to waste so much money? This is probably being done by people who do not have to travel in their jobs.
Wake up and take a few sample trips. You will understand what I am saying.
Olathe Thank you, gentlemen. You're both so right. We couldn't agree with you more. Links: http://www.kansascity.com/2013/04/09/4170541/brain-drain-afghanistan-abortion.html http://www.kansascity.com/2013/04/09/4170530/kci-heartland-theatre-lobbyists.html
