Chick-fil-A still not coming to airport despite Paxton’s claims following FAA investigation, city says
SAN ANTONIO – Despite reports claiming the popular chicken restaurant, Chick-Fil-A, is being offered a lease in the San Antonio Airport, the city says right now it’s standing by the city council’s decision made last year not to do so. RELATED: Lawsuit over Chick-fil-A removal at San Antonio airport tossed by state appeals courtOn Sunday, the city responded to KSAT with the following statement:“The FAA has not ordered the City of San Antonio to have Chick-Fil-A at its airport. The City itself offered to resolve the FAA investigation informally following Chick-Fil-A’s publicly stated change-of-position on its charitable giving policy. Any placement of Chick-Fil-A at the San Antonio Airport is ultimately contingent on Chick-Fil-A’s continued interest and approval by the City Council. Unfortunately, and ironically, AG Paxton’s false declaration of victory significantly jeopardizes the potential for a mutually beneficial and amicable resolution."
