Re: Why has MCI failed as a hub city?

Sized for full regional type jets, the MCI terminals would be decent if there was one central check in and screening location and intra-terminal moving sidewalks to crosswalk the terminal to a train at the center of each of them to minimize walking. I like MCI but it probably will never be a true hub.
