Is Bike Parking at Airports a Threat or Just Threatened?

Airport bike infrastructure a threat or just threatened?
Commenting on politics and the questionable representation I receive on that state and federal level is something I try to avoid in this blog but someone forwarded me this link from Streetsblog over Facebook and I decided to go ahead and share it with SRAB readers since it is a bicycle issue.  And a headscratcher. 

The Streetsblog post refers to a stipulation inserted in an FAA appropriations bill by Sen. John McCain (R - AZ).  Yes, my senator.  Yes, the not-yet-seceded state of Arizona.  I guess the senator is going all mavericky on us again.  (Heavy sigh!)

I don't see any problems with it. I think there's nothing wrong with bike parking at Airports.

Bike parking places should be encouraged in every building everywhere. This is promoting fuel free transportation. I wonder why they feel threatened by this?

There's no reason for them to be threatened by bike parking at airports. I think it's a good idea.

I think parking your biycles in the airport isn't a threat or anything. The only problem is the space, sometimes the administration don't want people park their bikes on the parking lot.

The problem can be solved if they just changed the system to include bike lanes to and from the bicycle park. They should encourage the use of bikes and not do something to remove them at airports.
