I had wondered the same thing the other day as I was booking a cheap Delta fare to SLC for some mid-winter skiing and saw a post that said mid Feb. Which seems like what NWAFA said when the B & C are done.

Keep in mind that there are two "Old Terminals" at DTW right now --
L.C. Smith home to Delta, Southwest, et. al. and the Davey terminal, the boarded up ex-home to NW... When I was last there in August the Davey terminal was very sad looking and I was a bit surprised that NW hadn't removed their signage completely from that building (skycap podiums looked like NW had just moved out)
Anyways, "dump" just about completely sums up L.C. Smith -- the only upside to it is that it lacks the annoying automated announcment thing that DL seems to be rolling out (ala ATL and CVG) -- looked like the building was about to fall down and the DL agent I ran into (after making a wrong turn headed for Comair's gate) had a tool box in hand and was walking towards a partially disassembled podium. Now that's something you don't see every day
Happy New Year!

don't forget the Berry terminal,the old intl' terminal, where all the non-scheds,ChampionAir,USA3000,et. al., flock together,it is still extant, and home to those lovely blue and white MG 727's,plus the occasional Miami Air 737-800,and all those boring Airbi.
the rumble of round engines is like music to me,likewise the thunder of thr JT8D
