The 2002 numbers are out, and again Atlanta's
Hartsfield International Airport (right) is claiming to be the
Number One Airport in the World. Through its portals passed 76.8
million passengers. Chicago's O'Hare Internation processed "just"
Atlanta isn't taking into account that "busiest" may mean more
than just how many people have to get turned around in the
Chicago, for instance, says "busiest" should be
based on aircraft movements, and ORD was ahead of that
upstart southern airfield in that category -- 922,787 flight ops,
an all-time record. Hartsfield was 30,000 shy of that number.
Things are likely to change soon, though, as O'Hare (ORD) is
home to bankrupt-and-falling United; it is a secondary hub for
troubled American, too. Atlanta is home to struggling Delta, and
profitable Air Tran.
However, O'Hare is set to expand by nearly a whole Denver's
worth of money, starting next year. On the other hand, Hartsfield
is looking at another runway, too, along with extra rail and roads
-- something Chicago's got in its plan, too.
It's getting interestinger and interestinger.
