WN, AA, and AS are expressing concerns about the $1.3 billion price tag of Sacramento's new terminal expansion. The current plan has airines paying about 1/2 of the cost with the rest coming from passenger/parking fees and other sources.

I love this statement:

But county airports director Hardy Acree says Sacramento's facility needs a major expansion to keep pace with Northern California growth and that airlines benefitting from the increased ridership must pay their fair share.

"From the beginning, we've taken the approach we (will) build what is needed, and the costs are what they are," Acree said.

Arrogance at its very best..

LOL, that is funny.

SMF does need a face lift, I absolutely dispise the airport (especially the old terminal), although it's my hometown airport.
