WOW! THANKS! Great to see. I must have been under some rock not to have seen this or heard about it before.
It sure is needed.
So, what does this new mega Terminal A spell for UA’s fortress there?
Also, I did read through the pdf “presentation deck” and there doesn’t seem to address the increase in traffic to/from NYC and elsewhere or mass transit solutions to handle so many millions of passengers?
Did I miss something?
Thanks again R
I don't know that it is going to add a tremendous amount of capacity (33 gates vs 29) so I think UA is pretty safe. There isn't enough ramp and runway capacity for someone to build a substantial competing operation anyway, is there?
I think it would be pretty much "Status Quo"
IMHO, I think that the set-up envisioned would wind up being more than 33 gates. Even if moving AC to Terminal B, you would still need gates for AA; WN; B6; AS; VX; and DL (if they have to move to the new terminal. Plus UA will get some of those gates as well. The three main carriers also uses E-170/75; and CR-7/9. That makes more gates than the standard ML gates. And/or you may get the occasional 757 (AA has the 321 service here) as well. I don't think that there will be many widebody gates either - only DL has the AMS 767/330.flight I was just trying to figure out how this is going to work if DL comes over from B. And will they bring the out bound over to the new A Terminal? They will need about 8 or more gates plus a WB Gate, you would think. So I'm trying to figure out how this is going to be allocated, even with AC going over to Terminal B. You would think that B6 will get 3-4 gates; WN getting 3-4 gates; AS getting 2 gates;. VX getting 2 gates That is all mainline gates. Don't know how many gates will AA need - between 8 to 10 Including a WB gate? If AC stays, they will need 2 gates plus the use of a WB gate. And UA will need 10 or more gates of various sizes. I'm also thinking that the WB gate(s) could be the CUTE gates.
Bottom line is that if DL comes over, you will wind up with the max amount of gates IMHO. I'm just guessing........
Was it announced that AC was moving to TB as part of this? I know their current 787 service to YVR operates out of a B6 gate (I'm assuming because it doesn't fit at their own). All gates and counters in the new terminal are CUTE, though, according to the document. I understand some of the gates are paired specifically for occasional widebody visitors. But there is no CBP/FIS in the initial design. According to the doc that would happen with an expanded head house if the 45-gate option was pursued.
