fast plane to china.
you probably didn’t know this but atlanta has the nation’s largest and busiest airport without direct access to china. hometown airline delta is attempting to change that having entered a bid for new routes that have opened up to beijing and shanghai (see businessweek here.)
securing these routes is actually a very important thing for our city and it’s emergence as a center of global commerce; and frankly having to get of a plane in o’hare having just flown from shanghai and change planes to come here is a major pain in the ass.
you can help; believe it or not, signs of support from the public weigh in quite a bit in determining who gets awarded these routes.
delta has set up a web site celled next gateway to china where there is a petition you can sign.
give it some thought.
