Looks to me that it's Delta nixing the idea of a second airport. They're almost in every article online opposing it and paying residents to oppose it. They're the ones saying it isn't "economically viable" the same way United was with Houston. Big fat lie. Atlanta is more than strong enough and large enough.

Edit: But I get it. It's more expensive to start an airport almost from scratch and the Hartsfield expansion was already approved a couple of years ago. I just feel like this is more pleasing a corporation.

A second airport option has been explored because Georgia Republicans do not like the Democratic-led City of Atlanta controlling the airport and the state's largest economic generator.
