Letter: Did airport have to charge so much to park for event?

Did airport have to charge so much to park for event?

I feel the need to vent about the cost of parking at Buffalo Niagara International Airport. On Saturday night, I was among the hundreds of family, friends, military and, yes, even politicians who attended the homecoming of Honor Flight. What an awesome event.

However, it was disappointing that the airport has a $4 an hour charge for parking. For most of us, that meant $12 plus tax, or more, if you came very early to secure a good spot to watch the veterans and listen to the speeches that followed.

Seriously, on a Saturday night, let alone a momentous occasion such as this, the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority could not forgive the parking fees, or at least give all of us a break? I am sure that to some of the folks attending, this was over the top.
