    Odd I can't find other information on this- maybe Fake News?

    Definitely an early April Fools joke.

    From the "About" page:
    This site publishes satire. If you don’t have a sense of humor that is unfortunate. We call this discrepancy the “experience gap.”

    Thanks- I missed the "About" page.

    I wondered why no one posted it yesterday, and felt something was odd when I couldn't see other references.

    I'm still affronted and angered at the arrogance displayed by Chicago mayor Richard Daley when he ordered the airport to be destroyed.

    Given the way he had the runway torn up in the middle of the night, with no notice, I considered it an act of terrorism.

    How is it possible that he was not arrested and thrown in jail the next day? I guess this is sort of a rhetorical question. I'm afraid I already know the answer. :(

    Satire signs where all there

    "This destruction angered thousands of pilots, left multiple aircraft stranded on the field and left hundreds of thousands of Microsoft Flight Sim players asking “Where am I?” when the game opened to its default takeoff scenario.

    Construction on the new 6000 foot runway is expected to begin as early as fall of 2019 with the airport completion slated for September of 2020.

    Plans call for an on field restaurant, first class FBO, and bragging rights of the tallest control tower in North America.

    In coordination with the re-opening of the field Microsoft will revert its next generation flight sim to default at this location."

    Sigh. I was getting excited to have the Mayor and Mrs Daley memorial bathrooms

    It better be true. I pre-paid for a 99-year lease on a hangar!

    This spoof of Spirit is a good one. It's increasingly possible to take the premise of the article seriously. :D

    In a move that surprised nobody, Spirit Airlines was officially declared an Airline for the legless community only.

    “It was only a matter of time.” an anonymous Spirit employee stated. “By moving the seats 2 inches closer together, we could fit more people on the plane and overall since they are not full people, it adds less weight. So the flight costs far less to operate but we can sell more tickets. Its a big win for Spirit Airlines.”

    I flew on Spirit one time in my life.
    This is pretty accurate.

    If a trailer park could fly, it’d be called Spirit Airlines.

    The owner of the airport would have to file a complaint for the Mayor to be arrested. And the airport is municipally owned. -Skip
