From another thread (posted by Another Superlame), probably worth its own discussion.

Sydney Airport upgrade (http://www.aspecthuntley.com.au/asxdata/20111205/pdf/01249577.pdf)

As a matter of interest what makes an airport a good one from your perspective as a user?

The funny thing about the 'Qantas precinct' that if they want to build it they're going to need to start in about 2016. Which means that the hangars need to be built by then. Which means they should be starting in about three months time to do all the preparatory work for them. Can't see it happening myself. Not in the time frame Mac airports has laid down anyway!

Don't need hangars when you're going to shut it all down.

Nooooo, really? Why? Because the 2nd Sydney airport takes care of all the KSA problems.

Australia = The Infrastructure Kings :D

So the current plan is that we have no plan?:ugh:

Or has it been put into the 'to hard basket' and Mac Bank will build a bunch of car parks, with no terminals run the airport into the ground then when it's at maximum gridlock try and sell it, or throw a hospital pass to the government?
