WorldTraveler said:whether ATL supports or opposes another airport in the region means nothing since the residents of Paulding County themselves thru their own elected officials .............................
Yes, the residents have spoken.
Ofcourse the fact that ATL and DL got their panties in a serious twist about even the smallest of possibility of a LCC/ULCC serving Paulding county airport and were the most hostile forces / loudest opposition ..... well let's ignore that.
WorldTraveler said:and there really is no threat to either airport in Dallas, which has been a two airport city for years. There has been no loss of traffic from DFW and in fact AA has added flights in some markets to maintain its market share.
so, no, there is no evidence whatsoever that DAL or DFW is at any financial risk by having two airports.
That's interesting that in this case, you're saying that DFW will not suffer any decline(s) in traffic and will even thrive as DAL is expanded. Yet in the not so distant past (roughly around and shortly after October 2014), you were doing some major gloating of how much more traffic WN is drawing through DAL and doing multiple cartwheels + jumping for joy at the thought of damaging AA at the same time (you do realize that AA, is DFWs dominant carrier, right?).
So, which is it?
Can you ever make up your mind?
Or do you want to have it both ways?
You wouldn't be trying to sell a certain narrative would you?
