5/10/17 Regarding the earlier comment about the Kansas City (MCI officially or KCI as locals call it) airport. I love the airport! Easy to enter and exit. Dropoff and pickup is on the street level. The walk to the gate is minimal and Southwest has connected most if not all their gates. Getting to baggage claim is a short walk that doesn't require a train, escalator or elevator. Southwest and some Kansas City officials are in favor of building a new airport structure consisting of 1 terminal at the current terminal A location. Most residents of the metropolitan Kansas City area are against the 1 terminal because KCI is so convenient! Except for my experience at the Oakland airport, airports are large and it takes a long time to get from the entrance to the gate. It also takes a long time to transfer from 1 gate to another at most airports. The folks in favor of a new terminal feel that there will be an economic benefit to the city once a new terminal is built. Certainly passengers to and from Kansas City will pay more for a ticket. I love KCI!
