"That was a long time ago, about a month ago. We are past that,"
said Lindy Eichenbaum Lent, spokeswoman for Mayor John
She was talking about a proposal that would have given some of
United's gates at DEN to Frontier airlines, for a $10 million
package of concessions at the airport.
Back while then-Mayor
Pena and then-Governor Romer were selling Coloradans a $1.8 billion
airport that they didn't need, for what became a nearly $7
billion airport, DIA, as it was then called, kept running into
money problems. Just about every time the massive jobs program ran
out of cash, the Mayor and the Gov would strongarm United into
ponying up another wad of cash or promises. In return, United got
near-control of the airport... at least, the choicest gates and
best terminals were theirs.
Now, United is the party short on cash, and Denver's trying to
redistribute some of United's expensive jewels.
United, apparently, isn't that desperate.
