This week’s featured link:
The Mexico City airport saga continues. The incoming president promised he’d stop constructing the new airport (which is already a third built) and focus on expanding the existing one. Now he realizes that’s a terrible idea, but he can’t go back on a promise. So, he’s going to put it to a vote (something that isn’t orthodox at all in Mexico) so that he can place the blame elsewhere.
Remember all those Essential Air Service markets that were on the chopping block? They all got waivers. Surprise, surprise.

I feel like I’m missing something here. South Korea is shutting down a high speed rail line to the airport because people prefer buses. That is… something.
