I think it might work, but that is a lot of money in this economy and
maybe the money could have been spent in better places. Lori
Hopefully they planned this expansion so that it does not cause
traffic problems and becomes a asset not a confusion center.
I think this is a good project and should be a big boost to helping
las vegas survive in this bad economy. Betty Lawson FL
I think it will help the economy. The monorail is/was a good
idea, but as to were the stations are in the casinos, you have to walk
alot to get to them. With the airport expansion, travelers from other
countries will be more likely to come here since there is more flights
in and out of Vegas. Plus with the new expansion this also means more
at the airport itself, so that will help. Hopefully will prove that Las
Vegas is still the capital of entertainment and gaming. Chris

Terminal 3 is very important to Las Vegas and a game changer. It is
very well designed to move large numbers of people fast, a little "plain
Jane", but good design. It tapes the only market Vegas can expand into
and they will be people with money. It may add 10-15 or maybe 20% to the
bottom line of Las Vegas.(read that as jobs). Good work Las Vegas,
this is vision and tax money at work. Steve LIng
I think it will be wonderful. Is it going to be connected by a tram
like Terminal 2? It will be fun to get lost in the big terminal again.

i think anything that is new is going to be good and draw atttraction.
Vegas is good at re inventing itself and maybe a new airport terminal
might the thing that gets the economy back on track. Wayne P.
Great asset plus if only the Monorail could link to the airport, it
would even better. Carolyn Jacobs
I truly think the new terminal will be a good help to Las Vegas,
people need to fly and making it easier to get through an airport is
essential for travelers. The monorail is okay but people like to walk
from place to place, you see much more than riding the monorail.
