Ha! The first time I ever went to a Chick-Fil-A was about a dozen years ago in VA. I was up at Quantico staying at a hotel in Stafford. Every morning I would hit the drive through and get an egg sammich. Lordy it was good! Then one Sunday as I was heading in I cruised into the drive through lane. No one greeted me at the speaker. I even said "Hello?" and I hung my head out of the window, getting closer to the mic to make sure they could hear me. Nothing. Finally I pulled forward to the window. No one there. Lol I was fit to be tied! I got to work and said something to one of the guys and he was like "Oh yea they are closed on Sunday's". Smile

San Antonio's loss.

Completely false. As a business, Chick-fil-a has never discriminated against anyone.

Equality and inclusion insofar that your thoughts are equal to theirs apparently. These people are clueless.

Is there any point or stance the Left takes now without lying outright about their ideological opponent? I cannot think of one.

'Except' they're demonstrating the exact opposite of their statements because they're going to exclude a group ole Roberto and crew don't agree with. That's the very definition of discrimination you moron.

And for what its worth, I've been in the San Antonio airport a number of times throughout the years and its a mediocre at best airport.

Same here. It's an airport that is in desperate need of a chick-fil-A.

How on earth did CFA get approved for terminal 1 at LAX, the mecca for all things looney in California?

Could it be that the LAX Airport Authority is more concerned about the Benjamins than virtue signaling?

San Antonio voters should remember this next time city council wants a pay hike or tax increase.

This kind of nonsense coming out of San Antonio doesn’t suprise me. What does concern me is how the left wing extremists are taking over large Texas cities. San Antonio, Dallas, and Houston are all increasingly controlled by liberal whack jobs. Even Fort Worth seems to be teetering on the brink, as evidenced by Beto O’Rourke carrying Tarrant County last year. It’s great to have a booming economy, but a lot of people of the socialist persuasion are streaming in and bringing with them their leftist politics. It will increasingly fall to the rural Texas voter and maybe conservative bastions like Midland to stem the liberal juggernaut. Hopefully Texas will continue to be a red state. If it goes blue, there will be no going back.

I think that is what called a velvet covered sledge hammer.


Love that analogy. Never heard it before.

I've just got off the company website but didn't see stats. Would an airport operator be the company itself or do individuals own such concessions? Seems there is a whole lot more to the financial model of a 700 sq.ft. location vs. a free-standing location.

They should build a full, stand alone restaurant right outside the of airport, just to block traffic.

Just curious, but airports are open and full of passengers 7 days a week. Are airport Chick-fil-as open on Sundays? I would think that would be a contract requirement.


We often meet our destiny on the road we took to avoid it.

(As I too wondered.) Sez the internet, no. And the contract requirement is that they not be open on Sundays.

Local CFA locations have opened four times on Sundays, according to the trackers.

Sooooo...remind me again who's INTOLERANT???

To be honest, though, the airport locations are nowhere near as good as their B&M stores, IMHO. I believe for the airport locations, they pre-fab their sandwiches and then put them in warming ovens and/or microwaves before serving. Seems like every time I got a Chicken Biscuit in Terminal B IAH, the biscuit was crumbly and rock hard; not soft and tender like in their regular stores. But it still beat the crap outta anything else over in Terminal B for a b'fast sandwich.

I had a 40 minute layover in Denver today. Walked right past CFA because the line was absurdly long, compared to the other places in the terminal which were not busy at all.

Your concept is valid. After a Chick-fil-a opened in Bellevue, WA (East of Seattle), the traffic did block an off-ramp of I-405 and a major traffic artery for a more than a while. I was there and couldn't figure out what was causing the unusual, even for Washington, traffic congestion. Yes, it was the Chick-fil-a. (News articles can be searched for, but it seems off topic to post them.)
