Actually, I do know what the design is, and if you took the trouble to read the docs you would know too. I don't jump on here with things I can't back up. What the airport says and what it writes to agencies are often quite different. I use the written stuff or photos that don't lie. As a friend said to me, "Ink leaves tracks, words flow with the breeze." What do the words "state of the art" mean, absent any explanation? What does "Preserve Forever" mean, coming from a team that violated its permits in May 2006, before they were even issued? What is the "West Bay Preservation Area" without a map with actual dimensions on it? What is a corporate promise not given in writing?
Is it any wonder the people on here automatically go negative when any public effort is reported, not just the airport? We have learned the very hard way that what is said is usually either misleading or outright false.
Southwest Airlines is a breath of fresh air in this - you can bet they will have their deal in writing and retain the right to keep the books on it. That may come as a shock to people accustomed to just revising away inconvenient agreements.
