Could not agree more.
Driving on I-4 is horrible at best and only getting worse. The freeways in Tampa and Orlando proper are never at normal speed even Sunday mornings. I'm guessing there is a number of people living east or Tampa proper and west of Orlando proper that would utilize LAL. Perhaps more on leisure than business, but remember that Lakeland not only has Publix but many national auto parts, Pepperidge Farm, Rooms to Go, GEICO, Mosaic, etc.
Good for AA in kicking the tires.
