Re: Amtrak changes-LD Trains

Airports charge landing fees , customer fees , sales taxes collected at terminals , hotel taxes and payroll taxes bring in way more than building and operating costs . Most airports kick off large sums of money back to the government thus are profit centers .

Most modern terminals are filled with stores and dozens of restaurants of varying costs . They are huge revenue generators

Donít forget about the freight operations that employ thousands .

Itís the same silly argument about road repair costs . News flash police , fire , ema. And food and goods deliveries need the roads thus the government spending is needed if there were zero cars .

Ld trains and high speed rail (except short runs with tons of business travelers ) will not draw people. From planes .

People have few vacation days thus wonít want to waste an extra 10 hours or a day on a train. Business travelers need speed . My friend often flys out in morning returns in the evening for some of his trips. .

Thatís why the AOCís of the world are working to ban planes on fake green house has fears .
