hey successfully lobbied the city to remove the smoking ban. It the time since, revenue figures have continued to drop. Now the target is the Atlantic City Airport. Casinos are throwing their support behind a movement to expand the amount of flights that come into the airport. They are claiming that because of the low number of flights that come into the airport, they are losing out on potential revenue at their casinos. An effort is under way to fix this problem.

Spirit Airlines has already succumbed to the pressure being put on by the city. They will be beginning service to and from Boston on May 1st.
