I am very sorry to hear that Bakersfield International Airport is delayed.
However, I'm not surprised.
From the nasty comments I heard at the new terminal's open house last November, most people couldn't care less if MX
or any other "foreign" airline (re: Third World) flies into Bakersfield. It doesn't matter how much money it will bring into the community, what matters is appearances. It's not flights to Cancun or Puerto Vallarta - it's not designed for the "Mexican" community, so it's not a high priority.
Sad to say, but it's true.
