They both seem to be decent airports.

They are like say Florence, South Carolina.

Maybe instead of making a bet of ribs and beer against stone crab like city mayors do, the airports could wager like a Boeing 787 Dreamliner or somethin'

MCI is weird.

It was designed to get people from the curb to the gate as fast as possible, which it was great at... prior to modern security measures. Now it's an ugly, horribly outdated large bus terminal that's an absolute pain to spend any time in, let alone if you have to grab a connecting flight.

The new $1.5b, 50 gate airport (although they're calling it a terminal until all facilities can be switched over) opens in 2023:

I thought it was weird too. Isnt there a security station for every couple gates? And if you are the type to show up early and catch food or drinks you have to go through the security for the area your preferred establishment is in? I suppose you eventually get used to it.

I'm fine with Tampa on the other hand.

Yep. It was one of those things that was forward thinking in 1968 (and if security was a single metal detector wouldn't be an issue), but 9/11 just made it a massive pain in the ass.

I remember going through it as a kid and effortlessly going in and out of where the gates were and all the restaurants on the perimeter. If you want to do that now, you have to leave and pass through security all over again.

Southwest managed to build three restaurants and a couple of Starbucks in their wing, so that one isn't as bad, but... yeah. I always feel like I have to apologize for it when people visit.

Now, the downtown airport where the private planes land? Amazing. If they had the ability to magically build MCI there and wipe out the Fairfax district just to the north with a massive bridge that the planes could taxi across, it would be perfect.

I used to have a lot more family in the KC area than I do now.  Pre 9/11, it was a pleasure to fly in and out of MCI.  I've only done it once in the security theater era, it was weird and fairly soon after so not sure they'd nailed down the routine.

DEN's original layout doesn't work so well in the security theater era and it's going through a major renovation which will change the security checkpoints.

Yeah, pre-9-11, MCI was pretty awesome... well as awesome as an airport can get.

MCI was a nice airport before 9/11. Pretty much get in, get out, very few hassles.

I'm hoping the new airport is on time and as good as they claim it will be.
