Hello

I recently flew through Logan Airport on United. On my return flight, I noticed the jetway of gate C19 had an American flag on top of it: This was the only gate I saw with a flag, which leads me to ask: Was C19 the gate that United flight 175 departed from on 9/11? Just curious ...

I have a pic if you want to see it.

You are correct. AA also has one on their gate at the B gates.

UA has the same at EWR for flight #93. Well, they did in Summer 2002 at least.

Yes, indeed. It was above C19 in Aug. 2003, when I travelled through there as well.

When I flew home from BOS that day, I walked down the concourse, and curious about which gate it was, I asked the UA customer service rep. at the counter, albeit quietly, not knowing what his reaction to my question would be. He confirmed it was C19.

I went down there, and took some pictures of the gate area, and the flag above it. The same CSR then walked up to me, and asked me if I knew anyone on #175. I indicated I didn't, and then he went on to tell me he lost his roommate and best friend on that flight.  Sad He also said that he was the one who made the boarding announcement that day as well. He was doing his best to not shed a tear, but wow...I didn't know what to say.

The flag was still above A16 or A17 at EWR as of the end of August.

Wow, I just flew out of that gate on Monday morning and didn't notice it. I wish I would have seen it there. I'll definatley look for the flag next time I'm at Logan.

It gives you a very odd and unsettling feeling to walk down that jetbridge at C19 knowing those @#$% terrorists did it as well.

On a lighter note, there is a beautiful quilt downstairs in the employee area that has contributions from AA employees and signatures/pictures/etc. It is an inspiring sight given the age of airline competition. It is unfortunately not in an area customers can view though. Does anyone have a picture of it?
