Auckland Airport chief executive Don Huse said the company was an honest broker resolving competing airline interests.
Having "common use" terminals gave airlines more flexibility than single use terminals and avoided overbuilding. They also gave lower barriers to entry for airline competition.
"So what would possibly be the motivation for a single airline wanting its own facilities?" said Huse.

Ridiculous!! I imagine a lot of airlines want to start service into AKL, is this a factor in us not seeing them?
Does the airport even need this much money!? Shame on AKL airport!

So raise ticket prices on monopoly routes. Most routes are monpolies or duopolies anyways from AKL.
If a 744 is too much aircraft, get rid of them and downsize to a 773 or 772.
