If you think BOS has been out there banging on the doors of all of these new airlines and hitting up the airline networking conference circuit, you'd be surprised.
Actually they have. Most of the ground work was set by Gov. Patrick and his administration. Some people here in MA accused him of traveling too much and wasting tax payer money but now we know why. He was out there selling MA and Logan airport to airlines along with Massport and other local executives. The governor never traveled alone.http://www.bostonherald.com/news_opinio ... d_millionshttps://www.breitbart.com/big-governmen ... ish-trips/
Take a close look at where those trips took him. Coincidence?
But thats still not BOS/Massport aka management leading the charge. Under this example, we should be faulting the Governor of NH for MHT woes. I frequent this conference circuit and rarely encounter BOS/Massport folks and that's largely because they don't need to go because the market or Governor have those bases covered for them.
Massport definitely led the charge - feel free to google "Yil Surehan" and see what you come up with.
