The key will be if the improved retail facilities do in fact help the airport lower fees. That's one thing that the airport can do to help improve the profitability of flights. More power to them in doing so.

All the best to CLE in the changing post-2008 financial world.

Cutting the landing fees almost in half over the last three years is pretty impressive.

I don't know if retail facilities attract transfer passengers or not; but they can't hurt. I do know I stopped flying through O'Hare after I was charged 400% of street prices for a bottle of aspirin.



I love long German words like 'Freundschaftsbezeigungen'.

That's interesting. After all, most folks at the airport are a captive audience (whether you're an employee at the airport or a passenger). What's interesting is that as a result of a retailer, you're boycotting a whole airport, and thus, impacting, probably your travels on UA or AA compared to other airlines (and thus on the potential service of that airline at that airport). Since most patrons of airport retail stores are a captive audience (and especially during snowstorms when folks can be delayed in the airports for many. many hours), are there any price caps set by airport authorities on retailers---at least for non-luxury, non-souvenir goods like food and aspirin?

Yes, exactly. Except for a couple visits to Chicago itself, I haven't flown through ORD in a l-o-n-g time - all because of once being forced to pay $6-something for a $1.50 bottle of aspirin.
