AA & Miami-Dade County Meet To Discuss Overruns

Wed Jul 14, 2004 4:26 am

http://www.miami.com/mld/miamiherald/9140284.htm

The article states that AA met with the county manager and the aviation director on Monday for three hours and they are set to meet again today. All of this to discuss who will pay for the $66 million cost overruns on the new D terminal project. The county manager said that even if they reach a decision it is unlikely AA can go before the commission until September due to the summer break in August.

The article also states that AA Senior VP Peter Dolara says that AA will end up paying 60% of the airlines' portion of the project cost because of the airport's landing and user fees. The chair of the county commission's transportation committee says he wants the county manager to come up with a recommendation as to who should pay and that he feels whoever is responsible for the overruns should be the one to pay them.

I wonder how AA's Dolara figures that AA will pay 60% of the costs of the project, when AA certainly doesn't have anywhere near 60% of the total aircraft movements at the airport? I also wonder if AA declares bankruptcy someday if it cancels out all existing contracts and agreements with every airport on their system?

No, everything is not okay Scotty. AA has more cost overruns that they say they are not going to pay and they want the county to provide more funds.
