Layoffs looming at Lehigh Valley International Airport
Layoffs are a sign of tough economic times, officials said, but what does it mean for the future of the airport? LVIA just completed major renovations to try to lure more airlines, but a multi-million dollar lawsuit and airline cutbacks are forcing the airport to make some tough choices.

So the next thing the dumbbells on the LVIA Board are going to do is cut the shuttle bus from the Economy Lot. This means you have to carry you bags to the airport if you want to use the lot. Who is in charge of this airport? A bunch of political hacks who have no idea how to run or promote ridership. I use this airport at least every other month and leave my car in the Economy Lot. They recently raised the price and now want to eliminate the shuttle. All the money spent on about a half dozen shelters and phone system for the shuttle is now waisted. How do the elderly or people who cannot qualify for a handicapped sticker that allows them to park close to the entrance get their bags to the airport? A lot of times I have had to park at least 1000 yards or more from the side entrance from this lot. They should fire this board and get some people with common sense.

Call it LVIA reality is it is ABE airport, a "connector" airport. Always was always will be. Of 23 departures a day 15 go to the same primary airports as in the 1960's. Chicago, Atlanta, DC, and Phila. Not sure why 4 flights to Detroit but this makes 19 of 23 flights are change plane flights.
Rental car to Newark or Phila, drop the car off, be taken directly to departure and fly nonstop to your destination without trying to tie the flight to ABE arrival. Come home rent a car and drive home.
International airport from a passenger standpoint is a joke.
