I'd would think Song goes into LAX/SFO/SEA.
This terminal will really help Delta. It is the first terminal you come to while entering the the airport and the only terminal where you can exit without having to go thru the entire loop. Perfect for Shuttle passengers.

The local "transportation newspaper", can't recall the name, has 2 pages dedicated to the opening of the terminal. There's a quote in one of the articles that hints at the addition of International flights from BOS by Delta. That would probably be contigent on adding customs and immigration to terminal A. I suspect that at that point we'd see other SkyTeam airlines move to terminal A as well (Air France, AeroMexico, Alitalia).

It's a shame that Terminal A is ready when Delta has fallen upon hard times. I somehow doubt that Delta will add any destinations from Boston. They've had failed attempts at serving Frankfurt and London/Gatwick. I don't think that plans to serve Rome ever came to fruition.
It might be feasible, however, for all of the SkyTeam partners to operate out of Terminal A. Aeromexico, Air France, Alitalia, Continental, Delta, and Northwest all serve Boston. That would bring transoceanic service to Amsterdam, Mexico City, and Paris/Charles de Gaulle. Korean Air no longer serves Boston but they might be tempted to return.
The addition of FIS services would make Boston an easier connection point. Right now, international arrivals in Boston are at the remote Terminal E, which can be a pain--especially to Terminal A.
But I don't know if Delta and its SkyTeam partners care to make Boston a "hub," so to speak. The weather is not favorable and the airport can be congested. It might be just as easy to leave Boston available for O&D traffic, obviating the immediate need to consolidate operations to a single terminal.

It'll be interesting to see if DL does anything with BOS in the next year.
BOS was largely left out of the route restructuring last month. While other focus cities gained quite a few new flights, BOS got almost nothing. Plus, BOS gained nothing in the recently announced Song expansion.
I think DL's going to have their hands full trying to slug it out with JBLU in both JFK and BOS.

Of course, I miss the opening by 2 days (I'm flying out the 14th to GSO). I wouldn't be shocked if my father was on the 3rd flight out of the terminal (the 0600 to LGA; only the 0550 to CVG and the 0535 to DCA leave before that)...

Not a day too soon! While I like the open departures lobby of Terminal C, the concourses and security checkpoints are just too small for the amount of traffic that Delta, Continental, and United (not to mention Air Canada, Midwest, and Cape Air) are putting through there. Thank goodness the international departures on AF moved to Terminal E because those just made things even worse! I can remember one afternoon when the security line for the DL/CO concourse stretched almost to the control tower.
I've got a flight out of Terminal C on CO on March 17, so it will be a bit weird to see all of Delta's areas completely empty there.

Quoting PHLBOS (Reply 10): Somehow, I don't think that area will stay empty for long.
Oh, I realize that. However, I doubt that jetBlue will have moved its operations into Terminal C the day after Delta begins operations in the new Terminal A. I'm still scratching my head as to which "eleven" gates jetBlue will be taking since I'm pretty sure Delta only has ten, spread out across all three concourses (20, 21, 26, 28, 29, 31, 34, 36, 41, 42).

I think JetBlue has its eyes set on the Continental gates...if they move from C to A (which is quite possible), then I'm sure B6 would snatch up those gates. There are 11 gates in the current DL/CO pier, so I'm assuming B6 takes over this entire pier, leaving 41/42 open to a new carrier (I'm assuming Cape Air might take one of these), and 20/21 would revert back to UA/AC.

I suppose the big question mark is where CO is going to go long-term. If I'm not mistaken, Delta is more or less borrowing C20 and C21 from United. I doubt Continental wants to split operations between two of the concourses (any more than jetBlue does), and there's been no news of CO moving into A with Delta.
Of course, jetBlue is going to start with 3 or 4 gates in C and add one every six months for a few years, so there's time for everything to get sorted out.

The last I heard as to Terminal C gate assigments after DL's moves was this...
-CO will use C25, C27, C40, C41.
-B6 will use C28, C36, C34, C32, C29, C31, C33
-YX will use C26, sub-leased from B6/Massport (until B6 needs the add'l capacity, then YX will relocate again)
-UA will continue to use C11, C15, C16, C17, C18, C19, and will renovate C20 and C21 from the Song style back to UA specs
-AC remains at C12 & C14
-Not sure where 9K will operate from with their Cessnas but would not surprise me if they come over to UA's side somewhere with a remote operation at least for the time being.
Also I have heard that
-NW will move to the original B6 gates in Terminal E (E1D, E1E) to make room in the IAB area of E for add'l international capacity. However, not sure if this is still the case.
If Virgin America starts BOS service soon after they commence, I wonder where they would be put.

Quoting KBOS (Reply 9): Do they have anything special planned for Terminal A?
The only special plane would likely be the 762 "Spirit of Delta", although a 777 would also make a nice addition. I just hope that DL makes good use of the new terminal. They used to have plans for service to CDG, FRA, DUB, SNN, LGW, JAX, LAX, etc. They shouldn't spend $400 million for nothing.

Digging this topic out, delta.com is now showing some flights to and from BOS tomorrow as departing and arriving from gates in Terminal A, not Terminal C. The Shuttle flights are still appearing to be at Terminal B, but it's possible that the information for those flights may not have yet been updated. It also appears that the gate numbers no longer hyperlink to the now-inaccurate BOS terminal map.

I have serious doubts that DL will enter any LAX/transcon route out of BOS. They couldn't make LAX and LGW work before, so why now? Plans for FCO were dropped also. They have more gates than they need in Terminal A for their current schedule also. No other carrier at BOS wants to move to Terminal A due to the high rent fees per square foot (CO, NW). I was told it was 50% more than the other older terminals. Nonetheless, Terminal A is a phenomenal step forward for Logan and Delta- it's a great space. Congrats to them for making it work.
