THE AIRLINE THAT WENT MISSING AND THE ONE WHICH LOST ON ITS GAMBLE TO LAS VEGAS

As part of her campaign and as a member of the Airport Board Jessica Tetreau announced during her campaign that Brownsville had landed Aeromar Airlines for direct flights to Mexico.  The problem is the airline never landed.  Was it a false campaign promise based on a report issued by the Airport Board which referenced Aeromar as a possible airline to service a Mexican market which owns most of SPI?

The morning we are learning Allegiant Airline took a bad gamble on Brownsville by offering flights to Las Vegas.  The flight schedule was a disaster.  It took 4 days of your time with only 2 days available for ground time in Vegas.  An early morning Sunday return after gambling or partying all night left me  to wonder if Allegiant Airlines even knew why people visit Vegas.

THE RUNWAY

The BV has document endless stories going back to 2003, that the Airport will begin construction on the new runway any day now.  Land had been bought, money had been raised - nothing.  Maybe a year ago we were told that because of Space X we would get a new runway.  This got more people backing Space X, because they understood how a larger runway would mean more business for Brownsville.  Is anything happening on this runway other than the same promises the BV has dated back to 2003?

I cannot see why anyone would trust this Airport Board or City Commission when it comes to the airport.  Incompetence seems to be the regular theme of both.
