Compliments were flying as people used the new $1.3 billion terminal at Armstrong International Airport on the first full day of operations. The way the terminal looked and the wide array of dining options were highlights.
Some passengers did report a few problems. A couple of people said that they were stuck on planes 20 minutes after arriving at the gate because the jetway wouldn’t extend properly to match up with the airplane door. Others were unhappy that it appeared only four body scanners had been installed and ready for use at the TSA checkpoint.
Overall, however, the reactions were very positive. It was also announced that nearly three years into nonstop service between Armstrong International and London-Heathrow, British Airways is adding another flight to that schedule. The British flagship airline will now make the round trip flights six days a week.
