Ok, this is completely false. I live in Tampa and there has been no word from the media on this.
You have facts but they are drawn together false.
Yes, Tampa can not expand runways. But they have two runways capable of handling any aircraft, 747s and Concordes have flown into TPA, and 767s, 777s, L-1011s, and narrowbodies fly into TPA all the time.
They have two terminals that are not in use. They could be destroyed and rebuilt to handle some 40 combinded gates.
Lakeland IS planning an expansion, but YOU CAN NOT tell me that they are moving an uncrowded airport 10 minutes from downtown to a location some 60-75 minutes from downtown. Tampa and Lakeland aren't THAT close!
I'm not gonna get into more reasons why this is not true, but I'll be happy to supply them if requested.
