You should back this up with facts if you are going to make these statements:


It pales compared to Atlanta.

To quote Wikipedia:
"In 2010, Charlotte was the 6th busiest airport in the world, based on traffic movements and in 2013 it was the 23rd busiest airport in the world by passenger traffic

Charlotte is the largest airport in the United States without nonstop service to Asia."


An airport this size should have more international traffic and not just to the islands.

Of course it pales compared to Atlanta. Atlanta is the busiest airport in the country. Lets see the numbers for Nashville, Cincy, Pittsburgh, Columbus, Kansas City.

Says who? CLT isn't an international hub. Its a national hub. So what? And there are many more international flights than just to "the islands"...London, Paris, Rome, Barcelona, Munich, Madrid, Frankfort.

The presence of the USAir/American hub at Charlotte Douglas is a huge positive for Charlotte, and is one of the main reasons Charlotte has grown like it has.

No, thats not what he said. Nice try though. And CLT does, in fact, have more international flights than most airports in cities Charlotte's size. Not all, but most.

Exactly! Charlotte even has more international flights than a few metros larger than it. San Diego and Tampa come to mind.

You know what you are right, no airport can compare to the charm and sophistication of Charlotte Douglass International. The rocking chairs, the piano and the dogs on Tuesdays are no match for the no hub one runway loser airport in San Diego. And, if you are flying to Asia one connection in Atlanta or NY won't kill you. (Unless you are a Toyota exec looking for a direct flight: North Carolina was ready to offer Toyota $107 million, documents show | The Charlotte Observer.)

Some people need to take a break from this forum for a few days. Who cares about the rank of Charlotte. Skyscrapers are being built left and right downtown and the airport is being modified dramatically over the next few years. Yes, Charlotte is not NYC. It's common sense and don't know why some need to say that and it's embarrassing that I have to say it. So stop with the comparisons and trash talk. Charlotte has historical buildings around uptown which some were moved to different wards to make room for skyscrapers. If Charlotte sucks so much why is it growing so fast? Doesn't make sense for someone to insinuate that.

Rocking chairs ! That's awesome!

PS: With all of the money that NC was willing to give Toyota, they still didn't want to come. NC can bag lame corporate relos, like Sealed Air, but not the big guns!

You're really having a difficult time understanding that Atlanta and Charlotte aren't comparable metros, aren't you? Atlanta metro is more than double the size of Charlotte's. We shouldn't be able to match it, nor NY's. Or frankly, San Diego for that matter, which has more than a million more people than Charlotte in the metro. And yet, we hold up pretty well against SD. But don't let facts get in your way, you've got an agenda to promote!

Toyota didn't move to San Diego, either.
