Most people are apathetic about Chiquita as I am, although I do like going to their annual golf tournament here. Most people in the know are very positive about the AA/USAir merger as it relates to CLT's hub status, including the CEO of the merger. US Airways CEO calls merger 'fantastic news' for Charlotte - Charlotte Business Journal
CLT has the advantage of being known as the lowest cost hub (CLT is the 4th largest hub in the world and is expected to continue to grow with the merger) and is expected to fill the hole that AA had in the eastern routes. I'll tell you it is great that I can get direct flights to anywhere and this will continue to attract business to the Queen City. Charlotte's mayor (Foxx) is the favorite to be appointed Obama's head of Dept. of Transportation (also the reason why Charlotte has rec'd so much $ for light rail, transportstion projects). The negative is thatfares are on the higher side but many of us business people don't pay the fares out of our pocket. It is one reason why many professional golfers, other athletes and celebs live here.

The unemployment rate in Charlotte is 10%, above the national average so in my mind worse case scenario is: work for unstable company, move to Charlotte, get laid off, can't find a job due to high unemployment then have to move again.

No thanks. My best friends are all in northern KY.. I wouldn't mind being in that area, I know it well.
Well, many folks were right about Chaquita jumping around, seems like a fraud of a company but no skin off Charlotte's.CLT continues to thrive and grow and solidify itself as one of the major hubs at low cost. Substantial capital continuing to be invested in staying ahead of traffic growth.
