    At least Burger King serves breakfast. Also the meat for the Chili is made from old hamburgers from the day before. Think about that. EW.

    If you eat at Popeye’s the jambalaya, if they still serve it, works the same way. I can remember many a day donning gloves and chunking chicken.

    It will soon take a little longer and could cost more to fly from Columbus to the home of brats and the Brewers. Frontier Airlines will eliminate its two daily flights from Columbus to Milwaukee on June 1 as part of a larger exodus from Mitchell International Airport in Wisconsin.Frontier’s are the only direct flights to Milwaukee from Port Columbus and represent the extent of the airline’s service locally.

    Airport plan may speed sale of 2 hotels
    By Steve Wartenberg
    The Columbus Dispatch
    Saturday September 22, 2012 5:12 AM

    The leases of two Port Columbus hotels mired in receivership could soon be extended, while the lease of a third financially strapped airport hotel might be terminated, paving the way for its demolition.

    Columbus Regional Airport Authority board members will vote on Tuesday on a proposal to extend the land leases of the Hilton Garden and Hampton Inn hotels by 21 years, through 2062, and cancel the lease of the Comfort Suites Hotel.

    The airport authority recently approved plans to build a $13 million, 122-room hotel on the site of the former Concourse Hotel, which is slated for demolition in the next few weeks.

    “Hopefully, the removal of about 60 rooms (at the Comfort Suites) will help the occupancy of the other two and the one we’re building,” Holderman said.

    Bodes well when CMH makes the case for international service to Europe or Asia. (can’t get past the paywall unfortunately)

    International travel spikes from city’s main airports

    It’s basically the same once-a-year article the Dispatch publishes regarding the quest for international air service from Columbus. Though the information from the Brookings Institution can be found in this report from the Columbus Business Journal:

    http://www.bizjournals.com/columbus/news/2012/10/25/international-travel-in-columbus-jumps.html

    Honestly, the concept of nonstop air service anywhere transoceanic from Columbus is still nothing more than a dream; unless a local company or consortium decides to subsidize such service. A similar scenario is in play between GlaxoSmithKline and American Airlines, which provides daily nonstop service between Raleigh-Durham and London.

    It would be nice, however, if the above information lead to increased service to connecting international hubs, most notably San Francisco. SFO is United’s main Pacific gateway, and provides many international connecting opportunities. Add to that a multitude of Hawaiian and intra-California routes as well as a stong local origin and destination market, and one can make a pretty strong case for the service.

    The only problem is that due to the stage length of the flight and the timing required to maximize revenue opportunities on the route, United would essentially have to dedicate an aircraft’s usable day to flying the route round-trip. Mainline flights are stretched thin as it is, and routes have to be proven money-makers in order to have an aircraft dedicated to its service in such a way. It would be nice if the CRAA could somehow entice United to serve the route on top of the offers and deals already on the table. Who knows, maybe this new information could help in doing just that.

    The new hotel should be going up where the old Concourse Hotel was. There is a hotel between that and Sawyer Rd.

    Press Release:
    New Touch-Screen Information Kiosks at Port Columbus Connect Passengers with Directions, New Destinations
    November 20, 2012

    Just in time for the busy holiday season, Port Columbus International Airport is deploying a fleet of new touch-screen information kiosks designed to enhance in-airport way finding and help connect passengers with destinations and experiences throughout Ohio.

    Through a partnership with kiosk builder Meridian, digital design consultant Hansen Creative and computer hardware specialist Hewlett-Packard, ten interactive kiosks are being installed in both pre- and post-security locations throughout Port Columbus’s three concourses, on the ticketing level and on baggage claim.

    Each kiosk provides easy access to an all-airport directory of food and retail options complete with hours of operation and walking directions. With a couple taps of the screen, directions can be printed or pushed to a mobile device through a QR code. The flexible touch-screen capability allows travelers to quickly navigate to other kiosk features such as weather forecasts, a photo-taking tool with the option to add a fun border and email to friends, and connect to points and events of interest through community partners ExerienceColumbus and DiscoverOhio.

    “The Port Columbus team is pleased to offer customers a tool that is truly tailored to their individual needs,” said Mark Mulchaey, Customer Service Manager with the Columbus Regional Airport Authority, operator of Port Columbus. “With the enhanced technology for way finding, we aim to make maneuvering the airport a bit easier just as many are preparing for the hectic holiday season.”

    the kiosk will not only be directional maps for the airport, but informational kiosk for activities and events in central ohio, resource to reach lodging and transportation, and information directory for airlines and airport services. The information I believe is linked to Experience Columbus.
