This is not good at all. I was hoping DL
would increase it's mainline flights at SLC
, not reduce them.
I love SLC
, as all of you know. It's my favourite airport bar none. There's too many RJ
's there as it is now, I've got nothing against them, but I'd really like to see more mainline jets.
's population continues to grow. I wonder why there is a need at all to reduce the flights? If anything the demand should be growing.
The only good thing that could possible come out of this, is that it will force SLC
to revise it's 20 year master plan. Their master plan calls for a demolition of the existing terminal, and construction of one that's many, many times bigger, and almost identical to the infrastructure of ATL
. I'm serious, if you check it out, the new terminal design, slated to be open within the next 20 years, looks frighteningly similar to Hartsfield Int'l, with parallel concourses and more than 4 times the amount of gate spaces.
is reducing flights, this design may not happen, thankfully. The current SLC
terminal is beautiful. It'd kill me to see it demolished since I grew up watching planes from this terminal. I've always been against the SLC
