It's a Secret, But Love Field Is Ranked ...

dallaslovefieldhasmoving.jpg
Every year, the Airports Council International -- a trade org representing most of the airports in the world -- asks terminal travelers how they really feel about their skymalls. And every year, the ACI manages to keep those reports secret. Except this year: The Times of London has hidden behind its paywall the latest report revealing where the world's top 146 airports rank according to passenger preference. And while we don't know (yet) where Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport comes in on the list, we know how the city-owned Love Field fares: Per FOX News's recap, it comes in at No. 94, well below Mississippi's Jackson Municipal Airport, which, at No. 8, is the only U.S. airport to crack the Top 10. Yeah, but just wait till it's Distinctively Dallas.

Dallas Love Field should pay homage to Suburbia. Bland strip malls, sprawl, Chilis and Subways as far out as the horizon. We already started by building a train station that is NOT reachable by foot and as someone mentioned is circa 20 minutes away from the airport. Thats what defines us as a city. The city with fear to be urban.

Isn't a survey inherently suspect that has Jackson, MS airport over airports like Pittsburgh or Minneapolis that have entire shopping malls at the airport? The Jackson MS airport only gets reviewed by people traveling in/out of Jackson. It's not exactly a broad spectrum of the traveling community.

The city manager has better things to do than worry about fast food at Love Field. Let's worry about crime, potholes, cleanliness. I can bring my own snacks to the airport.

Agree, re: the City Manager. It seems that virtually everything under Mary Suhm's domain ends up being a complete clusterf*$k. The most impressive thing about Suhm is the variety of ways in which she has managed to obtain failure in a wide variety of disciplines. How much longer will Dallas residents pay the price for her gross incompetence?

Will any of the mayoral candidates dare to take on the task of supervising "Queen Mary" and bringing her to heel?

The "Distinctively Dallas" theme might sound silly, but what else should a Dallas-owned airport be showcasing? Love Field is the perfect medium to promote Oak Cliff, Deep Ellum, Knox-Henderson, downtown and Fair Park to the tourists as they ride our magical "moving sidewalks."

I have been to Jackson Muni recently. What an armpit. Total of 9 gates and three restrooms. But I guess if you can throw in a Starbucks and a politically correct Medgar Evers Pavilion, you have yourself a deal. Sorry Moss Lee.

Another reason that Dallas is the 'hole in the donut'. Fire the city manager.

Does that mean the DMN will put the link to the Times article behind their paywall?

An airport serves as a "front door" to a city--- when the airport is run like crap, visitors tend to assume that other elements of the city are similarly run like crap.

Promote access to Oak Cliff, Deep Ellum, Knox-Henderson, downtown and Fair Park with the Dart Rail station that sits across the runway accessible only via 20 minute bus ride?

They should really just re-issue the old Love Field ad campaign from the photo and save some money. Its looks pretty cool in a retro way and yet, "Distinctively Dallas."
