I don't know much about the terminals at BDL, nor have I been there. How old is Terminal B?
I had always been under the impression that the terminal at LGB was the oldest. According to this it was completed in 1941. That actually makes it not quite as old as I thought, as I had previously though it dated back to the 1930s, but it's still pretty old.

Quoting Yflyer (Reply 2): I had always been under the impression that the terminal at LGB was the oldest.
For what little it's worth I was under the same impression but I can't tell you why or provide any factual basis for it. LGB definately has the "Dignified Old" look down landside, though, even if it's not the oldest

Quoting Boston92 (Reply 3): The terminal here in Santa Barbara is pretty old. Commercial service started here in 1932, though I am not sur when the terminal was actually built.
According to the airport's official website, "The Spanish-style terminal building, commissioned by United Airlines in 1942 was designed by William Edwards and Joseph Plunkett, an architectural team whose work, including the Arlington Theatre and the National Armory, helped shape the Mediterranean style of the city."
I can't find when it actually opened, but this makes SBA's terminal just slightly newer than LGB.

ERI - "Tom Ridge Field" has changed very little in the 30 + years I have been visiting it. They added a "jetway" in the 70's . . . of course security clearance -- but otherwise not much difference in the terminal since it was built in the 40's. Am sure some other small US city airports fit the same scenario. . .
