Austin-Bergstrom International Airport broke its passenger record last year. The airport said Monday that almost 12 million passengers walked through its gates, up 11 percent from the same period in 2014. But enough of the actual news. Let’s figure out how many tacos those sky-bound souls ate.
- 65.5 tons of brisket, up 3.5 tons/7,000 lbs. or 5.5 percent over 2014
- 693,375 breakfast tacos, up 71,065 tacos or 11.5 percent from 2014
- 1,190 live music performances (23 per week)
- 51,278 “Keep Austin Weird” T-shirts, up 15,082 or 41.5 percent from 2014
This year, the airport also broke its record for models named Blac Chyna being arrested on its premises, up 100 percent over 2015.
