News flash from LVIA,(better known as ABE Airport since there are no international direct flights from there).
Tony Iannelli and the incompetent board of directors in an attempt to keep the airport competitive will distribute tin cans with 20,000 feet of string to each passenger for communications. When asked what if the flight is longer than the string? Iannelli replied, "I really don't know but it sounds like a good idea to build customer confidence in LVIA. This idea will be one of the greatest along with the LVIA information booth we set up in the Lehigh Valley Mall. LVIA is trying everything to build passenger usage. We raised the charges to the carriers that use the airport resulting in higher fares. We expanded the airport even though ridership is down 40 percent since 2004. We eliminated the free shuttle bus from the parking lot so passengers carry their bags in the snow and rain. " Iannelli continued, "So what's a little string, it's not a major investment"

Tony Iannelli, Board Chair at LVIA had a new idea for Black Friday to improve ridership at the Airport . You get half price long term parking if you park in a newly acquired lot run by LVIA. The only trouble with his idea is the new lot is in Hellertown and they don't have a shuttle bus because of budget constraints, so you have to drag your bags 13 miles to the Airport.

Tony Iannelli, Board Chair of the incompetent LVIA Board of Directors said after the poor showing for the Airport's Black Friday Parking Special at it's new Long Term Parking Lot in Hellertown "Well, no one has used the lot yet because we don't have a shuttle bus but to assist people using the new Hellertown parking lot, the Airport is now offering free Baggage Carts to help you push your bags the 11 miles to the Airport." He also added that "The addition of 50 handicap Parking spaces will also help incourage using the Hellertown Lot".

Tony Iannelli, Board Chair and the incompetent Board of Directors of LVIA announced today that the airport will expand its new long term parking lot in Hellertown. Iannelli said "By doubling the size of the Hellertown lot we are planning for future long term growth here at LVIA." When someone pointed out that no one has yet to use the Hellertown lot because there is no shuttle bus and you have to push your bags 13 miles to the airport in the rain and snow, Iannelli said "Well the Authority is just following our past practices by expanding the new Hellertown lot. After all, we expanded the airport and ridership was down 40 percent since 2004. We are looking to build ridership and have no where to go but up here at LVIA"

Tony Iannelli, Board Chair and the incompetent Board of Directors of LVIA announced today that the Authority will take by Eminent Domain 400 acres of ground to expand it's new parking lot in Hellertown. When someone pointed out that no one has yet used the Hellertown Lot because you have to push your bags 13 miles to the airport. Iannelli replied "Well, the authority used Eminent Domain to take 400 acres next to the existing airport and we didn't need the extra land, but we took it anyway. I know it will involve demolishing half of Hellertown but look at the low cost of property there. We're saving the taxpayers money and planning for future growth here at LVIA. We've got nowhere to go but up".

Tony Iannelli, Board Chair of the incompetent Board of Directors of LVIA will be raplaced by the Lehigh County Exective. Now all that needs to be done is to change everything that the board has done in the last five years to destroy the Airport under the inept leadership of Iannelli. He may know how to run a Chamber but he sure doesn't know how to run an airport. He was nothing but a know it all pompous ass and the Airport shows how dumb he really is. Good by Tony and don't let the airplane door hit you on your big fat butt on the way out.
