Yeah, it's blatantly obvious now that you have no idea what you're saying. Go back and re-read.

If you honestly believe that Atlanta has no influence over Florida, just keep thinking it. Business people know otherwise.
It doesn't, in the sense that people in Florida (especially South Florida) "look up" to Atlanta. Read Spade's post.

Just to blow your mind a little, how do you explain the fact that the number one airport flown to from EVERY single city in Florida with commercial service is Atlanta? And I'm not talking about connections at the Delta hub - I'm talking O & D TO Atlanta. How is that possible if Atlanta has zero influence on Florida? Hint - they are coming because this is the dominant city in the region for business. And yes, that includes all 18 million residents.

Do you realize you just linked Hartsfield's Top 10 destination cities? As in, where people in Atlanta fly to the most? Now, I might be looking at it wrong, but from what I'm looking at, it means top destinations for Hartsfield.

Wow, you are MORE than clueless. You have to use the drop-down menu on the uppper right side of the page, and you can pull up EVERY major airport. For the airports that are not major, you click on the link titled "show all airports by state."

It really doesn't matter at this point, as you have proven that you read and interpret things the way you want to see them, no matter how many facts are presented. Coversing with you is like talking to a piece of furniture.

I already did that. The graph shows the top airports that fly into the airport selected. I've looked at a bunch of airport.

Atlanta does not have any influence on the state of Texas. Since the job market is still very good in the Austin/San Antonio area I believe this area will boom and have close to 5 million in about 10 years. I think Houston and Dallas/FW will boom along with the Rio Grande Valley. I really believe that Charlotte, Nashville, Atlanta and Raleigh with still boom at a slower pace.

No, it doesn't. It shows the top airports flown to from the city you select. Again, you prove my point. I have HANDED you a link you would have never found on your own, and you are still in denial!!!!!

And I totally concur with your thoughts re: DeaconJ and LovinDecatur - it is actually easy and enjoyable to talk intelligently with both of them. Certainly can't say the same for you.

I'm not in denial. I already stated that I may be looking at it wrong. I read it as the top airports with a destination to the airport selected.

Nope, Atlanta doesn't really have any influence over Texas.....unless you want a Coke, shop at Home Depot, need building supplies or consumer products from Georgia Pacific, fly on Delta or ship anything with UPS.

Nope, no influence at all..........
