Huh? What’s this all about? That’s not like our airport at all, but I’m telling the truth. Click here to realize I’m not making this up.
Our airport here is kind of known as the Tiffany’s of airports—not because it’s so damn nice but because it’s so damn expensive. Just about everybody I know will drive to Louisville or Dayton to get more reasonable airfares.
The expensive airfare here has to do with Delta Airlines. They don’t like low priced competitors and will do everything in their power to drive them away from Cincinnati.
When it comes to Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky, Delta is really when you are. In other words, Delta is more than ready to take your money.
I remember years ago flying to Seattle, one of my favorite cities, out of the Cincinnati Airport using Vanguard Airlines. I got a really cheap flight. Coming back from Seattle was a bit difficult as Delta ran Vanguard out of business the week I was there. Coming back, I had to take three different planes to return to Cincinnati. Oh, what a good time that was. No, not really, not really at all.
I hope cheap flights do come to our airport and that Delta leaves those low-cost airlines alone. They shouldn’t be a bully here and let’s face it: Our airport is not Tiffany’s. It’s just a damn airport that should serve its customers at a reasonable rate. Let’s get some low priced flights here so we can stop driving to Dayton or Louisville. That’s a joke and our local economy could use the money.
