TAKEAWAY: BOSTON EXPANSION

Yes, we are interested in moving into all of Terminal C so that we can continue to expand our operation at contiguous gates. We know that there are other airlines at Logan that have to be accommodated. We believe that you have to work within the community to do that, we know that.

But it’s not just the terminals. It’s things like the runways. It’s things like working the infrastructure on the ground. It’s access to the airport. It’s the light rail access, as well. And I think that much like what we saw with Terminal 5 at Kennedy Airport, this infrastructure improvement on the ground, well, that makes all the difference in the world with what’s happening up [in the sky] as well.
