How's this for an idea: instead of moving try to fight for improvement. Elect leaders that can actually lead and develop a strategic plan for the city and county.
"Support Delta"? If the fares are too high than there's nothing I can do to support them. I'm tired of these "airline consultants". They are just lackeys of the legacy airlines. Let's "support" Southwest instead!
There you have it - every one of ourpolitical and business leaders has the same story: "There's nothing I can do but hope Southwest comes in but they won' because our market is crap". How about a comprehensive business plan for Memphis & Shelby County? How about developing the river front? How about a consolidated tourist marketing strategy? Why do we elect & appoint people not willing to lead on this issue? Mr Cohen why not get rid of the essential air service which subsidizes a few rural citizens at great expense while hurting cities like Memphis? Get on the ball or step aside and let others do it!
