Several things;


- Less federal funding (more goes to larger areas)


- Less national security attention and funding (more goes to larger and more important areas)


- Less exposure to airline services and the less of a propensity to attract airline services (they gravitate towards large and continually expanding markets)


In 1970 Atlanta was the size of Saint Louis and Cleveland, what's changed since then? Both Saint Louis and Cleveland are largely the same as they were then but Atlanta is now 2X to 3X their size and with that has come airline services to 6 out of 7 of the inhabitable continents on Earth, a retail location for nearly every prominent clothing brand, and a secondary location for nearly every restaurant, hotel, or other service firms in addition to its ability to have attracted law firms, global corporations, professional sports teams, and healthcare institutions due to its market size.


Philadelphia's airport, for example, is already far behind. It only has like 5 or 6 foreign airlines and it only has service destinations to three continents, one of them being the continent it is on. This wont really change in the future, airlines wont be investing large sums of money into putting service into a market that's continually moving down the ladder, especially because it is in a corridor with larger and faster growing markets like Washington D.C. or New York or even Boston.

Atlanta's move up the ladder from #9 to #8 is obviously imminent. I would say that it should just barely squeak by and surpass the current #8 city by the 2020 census. Should it miss that target date then it will most likely do it the next year in 2021 and no later than 2022.

Say we move up to number 8.

Does that mean national weather forecasts are going to start showing us on the map?

It doesn't already?

I know it does on CNN and TWC (for the obvious reason).
