I figure there must be a reason, but it wasn't addressed at the press conference. Not looking to start a Carnival bash, just sincerely curious if a reason has been given.
The VP of Planning said that the Mobile airport was not properly suited to handle the number of chartered flights Carnival is using to transport the guests to Houston.

ETA: Just checked a satalite image of the mobile airport, and they only have 7 gates by the looks of it and Carnival needs about 15 large planes to handle all the passengers, which would involve shutting down the entire airport for like half a day... So I can understand why they aren't using the Mobile airport.
