This week, Scott Brockman, president and CEO of Memphis-Shelby County Airport Authority joins host Eric Barnes on WKNO's Behind the Headlines. It's been five years since the offial de-hubbing of Delta, which led to a reanalysis of what the airport could do. Six carriers and 27 direct flights have been added since 2013. There are about 75 flights a day now, a significant reduction since the airport's hub heyday with 300 a day. Brockman also takes listeners through upcoming construction to the airport. Bill Dries of the Memphis Daily News joins the discussion.
