The Cairns Airport has today sent an email to Cairns residents, offering an incentive to skip the hillbilly "Cairns Show". Apparently spurred by Mayor Bob "Sleepy" Manning, the airport is offering incentives to skip the show and get outta town.
Meanwhile if residents go to meet family and friends at the airport, they find a carefully crafted system designed to extract money from the public. NO place to wait with the entire precinct plastered with "NO PARKING" signs. NO mobile phone car parking as is STANDARD at virtually every airport around the world. And a "free" parking period of 10 minutes in the carparks - not enough time to run from your car to the terminal and back.
Cairns Airport management now are encouraging Cairns residents to screw the show and get out of town.
COMMUNITY SPIRIT BE DAMNED!
