They went as far as to threaten to move the hub to MEM. That never would have really happened, but they caved and ATL will get a new efficient, but not spectacular, international terminal.
You make it sound like the only people who fly to SMF are on state business. They should be playing to their strengths, i. Jacking up the costs at SMF helps nobody.
There is a lot of migrant labor in the central valley making up a good amount of the population. Reno is the more convenient airport for Tahoe. The opposite is also true, which San Jose, with the spectacular but expensive new Terminal B, currently suffers from.

Its all about maximizing utility and they are doing the opposite. This has big government written all over it. Terminal 2 and 3 at JFK are so bad it could send some to other terminals at the airport, but that is an entirely different situation vs.
Is this what SMF is apsiring to be? Under federal law, airports are financially insular. That said, I also disagree with your short-term thinking on economics.
If governments, or large public facilities such as airports, operated like big for-profit companies, it would be disaster. On paper, I follow the logic.
In some big, specific instances i.
I would beg to differ.Before the night was finished on June 25, , five Allegiant flights had been interrupted in four hours, all because different planes had failed in midair.
