These two are equally well fulfilled in A Coruna.

This seems like the only argument specific to Gran Canaria, and doesn't
seem to me like a very good reason.

In fact, it's *exactly* the reason that I cited when arguing *against*
Gran Canaria. Since it's a tourist destination, I think convincing
sponsors will be more difficult (bear in mind that on your money
arguments, cheap flights mean we can bring more people for free/cheap).
