|Topic: Eastern Short-Cut|

When the current midfield terminal was first built at ATL, they had the underground trains and moving walkways as they have now. Eastern had all of Concourse C and they shared Concourse B with Delta. But Eastern had their own underground moving walkway connecting Concourse C with their end of Concourse B, and they called it the Eastern Short-Cut. After Valujet took over some Eastern gates after Eastern was gone, this underground walkway was closed. Does anyone know what it is used for now? Storage maybe? Or has it been reopened as a connector from B to C? I haven't been to ATL in a long time?

I don't know what it is now, but I remember the "Eastern short cut." I thought I was the only person in the world who even noticed that sign. I had since forgotten about it until you just reminded me. Wasn't Eastern actually bigger in ATL than Delta?

I can't remember whether or not Eastern was bigger than Delta at ATL. When I used to fly there a lot, they both had the same amount of concourse space, so I thought they were about the same. But I'm not positive.

The old shortcut is now open again. Delta somehow got the airport to force Valuejet/AirTran to move to the other end of Concourse C. They then moved all other airlines on Concourse C to Concourse D. ASA (Delta Connection) moved into the gates on the end of concourse C from wich the shortcut to concourse B exists. It was then reopened.
