I agree with your logic on this point, it is pretty much a toss up as far as travel time to Nashville or Birmingham from Huntsville and a bigger selection of cities would be compelling when making the choice of where to fly from. That being said I like the move from Southwell in bringing in more direct flights with this low cost carrier to improve our flight options and I agree that he seems to know his business and should definitely be considered for the permanent position if he continues to perform at this level. I am optimistic about our chances at gaining more daily non stop direct flights at some point.

also, these prices are introductory. not sure where they'll end up, but they won't always be this cheap.

No, they won't. But they will serve a secondary purpose of driving Southwest's fares lower.

Southwest's fares out of Birmingham have crept up there over the years while still trying to pass themselves off as the low-cost provider. I've actually found that other airlines routinely beat SW on fares, while they've coasted for a while on their brand reputation.

Word on set (I'm in Los Angeles) is that Birmingham is slated for one or two production studios. Nashville is also slated for one.

That would be excellent news! Birmingham is a great location for a production studio or two. Also sound stages considering the number of underutilized industrial areas across the region that could be retrofitted becoming these type of uses.

That makes sense, given that a couple of productions are underway here already.

The 27-acre former Trinity Steele site is turning into a bid for something. I've heard this for about a month now that a tech company is trying to locate at this site. Now it looks like the Jeffco government and the City of Birmingham are now working together to move forward with this. The only catch is the Greater Birmingham Humane Society is trying to redevelop the site into a campus.

Quote:
Local officials say an undisclosed technology company is considering purchasing the 27-acre Titusville property for a project.

While local officials have said the company itself is looking to hire at least 80 highly paid employees, the sheer size of the site – as well as its proximity to Innovation Depot and the University of Alabama at Birmingham – suggests it could be transformed into a larger high-tech campus that would add to the area’s growing innovation and technology scene.

Trinity Park

My bet is that Birmingham officials will push for this tech development since it is more conforming to the Trinity Park site redevelopment. I think the GBHS officials should push to get the old Trinity Medical Center site instead which would be have adequate space to accommodate the Auburn University and Tuskegee University satellite campuses and to host conference meeting space. It would be a win-win for all parties with the redevelopment of both sites in the process.
