Ive always thought of the satellites at SEA-TAC as the GIANT eyebrows of the airport.

According to John Stroud's "Airports of the World", the satellites, along with its associated underground tramway, was built in the 1969-72 time period.

And they still have that '69-'72 look from the outside...

There have been renovations inside the north satellite in the past few years, especially around gate N9, which is used for UA875, SEA-Tokyo Narita.

UA has dominated (but not sure if it's always been 100%) the north satellite for many years. Due to recent cutbacks, alliances, and expansion projects, Horizon and AS use N7. US Airways is moving over to the north satellite to be with their partner UA. Air Canada uses it for their flight to YYZ (N3 I think) and AC Jazz uses N12 for their YVR flights.

Hope that helps. NW and a few int'l. carriers use the south satellite, as the customs facility is there. Not sure if there's any other domestic carriers that use the south satellite, as NW has and does dominate that satellite. UA's #876 from Narita arrives on S11 I think, then gets towed to N9. BA uses S11, too, as does Eva. I believe S11 is the Port gate.

Are some of the main councourses (A/B/C/D) newer than the actual satellites?

Here is a quick airlines of both Satellites

North Satellite Airlines:

United Airlines
United Express
US Airways
Air Canada
Jazz Air
Alaska Airlines
Horizon Air

South Satellite:

Aeroflot
America West
Asiana Airlines
American Trans Air (ATA)
British Airways
EVA Air
Frontier Airlines
Horizon Air (Int'l arrivals)
Northwest Airlines
SAS
United Airlines (Int'l arrivals)

I think once the new Terminal A is built there will be a lot of moving around with certain airlines.

When did US Airways move to the North Satellite? I flew SEA-PHL with them a couple years ago and I remember taking the tram out to the South Satellite. I remember seeing a NW DC10 bound for KIX two gates down. I also remember picking my girlfriend up there when she got back from DC (US Airways again I think).

I thought that AC Jazz used N13... I seem to remember using that gate and walking down the stairs to the ramp to board that Dash 8...

My bad...AC Jazz does in fact use N13. UA Express uses N12 for their regional flights. The next gates over is N14, N15, and N16, which are primarily 737 gates for the flights to SFO...a leftover from the Shuttle by United days...

I've seen AC use N1. Not sure about US Airways. AS and Horizon use N7 and N8 I believe, maybe even N6?

N6 is a widebody gate, I've seen a 777 and 767 there before. N9 and N10 are the primary widebody gates, N9 specifically for the SEA-Tokyo Narita. Also, N9 and N10 are used for some DEN and ORD flights, as are N1, N2, and N3.
