Kansas City's aging airport will be replaced with a new billion-dollar terminal after voter's approved the plan in Tuesday's election. Fans of the airport say it's one of the most convenient in the country, but Kansas City International haters say the crowded gate areas were so unfriendly to frequent fliers that it put the entire region's economic growth at risk. About 75 percent of the ballots cast went in favor of a new terminal.
