Used to work with a guy who told me his ex-wife's name was Pam.  That wasn't her real name but an acronym Pi*s and moan.  The airport's been at the same location since the 1920's.:doh:

Wife #2 and I found it easier and cheaper to park and fly out of BNIA when we went on cruises out of Miami Beach years ago.  A lot of Canadians seem to do this.  Always interesting to see the hardy ones returning in February, running from terminal to shuttle buses in their shorts, sandals, and cruise wear.  BNIA does a fair amount of marketing touting the advantages of a Buffalo departure.

Is the price differential that great between Toronto and Buffalo?

At the time (2011 and 2012), yes, but we are close to the border.  I do not know how current prices compare, but I do know BNIA continues to market vigorously to travellers from Canada.

I think he’s saying you knew the airport was there when you decided to live there..but, I could be wrong.

Yes. My family almost always fly in or out of Toronto when coming to or flying out of Buffalo. Few hundred at least

I still don’t get the love for Orlando’s MCO. Not impressed in the least the times I’ve flown out of there. DTW is excellent. FLL is good too and even under a remodel it’s a good one.

Is this why they are all ex’s?  Maybe they would still be around if they believed in their votes :D

When I use the airport, I'm in and out like a hot knife through butter. I'm a happy flyer.

 

Now they're doing an $80mil remodel to "improve" access. Improve what?

 

Must be nice to have $80mil burning a whole in your pocket and fix things that aren't broken.

it's tiny, but the amount of money they've spent on the rochester airport is shocking.  if the states grants them money, they find a way to spend it every time.  how many years has construction gone on there?  for two terminals?

Is there still a ferry service between Toronto and Rochester?

the fast ferry?  oh god no.  that thing was a nightmare.  there was always rumors that a the old mayor pushed a lot through to create jobs and money for friends.  it was just a bad idea and a way over build ferry.  no one in the world wants to leave toronto to come to rochester.  they could have pushed the wine trails/finger lakes, but nothing like that ever surfaced.

 

on top of that, you could actually drive back and forth faster that you could taking the ferry.

Sounds like textbook urban planning
