Not only no 787 in IAH, that also means no A380 from Lufthansa which was due to arrive in Aug. The mayor was even bragging about The A380, they even had to widen the taxi ways. Hmm wonder who picked up that bill.
Well I hope the City of Houston is happy now,Esp the Mayor. Let's see how the upkeep of Hobby is maintained,IAH is not even maintained . Wonder if SouthWest is going to charger her for 2 seats when she flys with them or does she get to fly as a pass rider now ?
Now this is really bad for not only the traveling public also for the people who work at IAH. The airport manager states 10,000 new jobs would be added.Hmm and if not what then? Then the city of houston should be fined if that doesn't happen. Also the city can't even maintain IAH now as a international airport how are they going to keep two airports going . For you the International traveler ,have you ever seen directions in French,German,Japanese know what I mean? The city said it was to expensive to do . Yeah we need another international airport like the people in Houston need another dome stadium .
When I was living in Chicago ,part of the great lakes wing,also personal friends with Dave&Ragina (who was basically the care takers of old iron Annie) also flew with it in a Airshow. This plane holds a special place in my heart. Besides my uncle was a flight instructor with the Luftwaffe .
