I know PVD pretty well, I can take a stab at C and D.
C. In reality, there is not really 2 ticketing areas. It is one big open area with counters to the left and right (looking from the main entrance). The area in the middle is the escalators to the baggage claim. It's actually not all that big, although Rhode Island Airport Corporation (RIAC) has done a good job utilizing the space they had and they are trying to find a way to expand it. The security area is actually pretty big, last time I was there, it had 10-12 metal detectors.
D. We actually have daily Beech 1900 service to Toronto on an AC commuter carrier (I forget the name). Other than that and the Azores service, I have heard about a North American 738 charter to AUA (Aruba), I think it is/has already operated but I'm not sure.

c. In their Master Plan for the airport at 2010 and 2030.. they have 2 ticketing areas.. the current one (2 sided), and then a new one to the right of the current (on the other side of the wall from the USAirways counter).. They will both funnel into 1 security area which will be located to the right of the current eatery (beside the bookstore to the right of the current security area) in between the 2 ticketing areas.
D. Are there any plans for International airlines after the first phase of the terminal renovation are completed? Looking on their diagrams, they seem to have some large A/C in their drawings.. just wondering if anything was being discussed that someone would have heard about.
