According to the AA website, @ BOS there is a regional terminal for American Eagle. Is this true? Also, is this terminal acesseble to passengers inside security for mainline flights(ex. gates 22-36)? Is it worth the walk@ 4:30 am to the regional terminal for spotting etc?

Thank you for this post! My parents and I flew out of it on my way to JFK last summer. Basically, if you have a certain American Eagle flight you are directed to a "gate" in the B concourse when you check in (I forget which one we used) and from there you see a sign that says "SHUTTLE" or something that like. It directs you down a flight of stairs and you walk onto an awaiting bus on the tarmac. From there you are driven to behind where the cargo (FedEx etc...) planes park and there is a small terminal there. There are no jetways, but bridges of sorts to load you into the awaiting planes.

The inside of the terminal is kinda cramped, but there is a Hudson News and I think one other store (not sure). It's in OK shape, but it's really a hassle to use if you want my opinion. I don't look forward to ever flying out of that terminal again. There are great views of the ramp though.

Don't know what the views are there from the terminal itself, but I'd say the best views would be just staking out a spot at the end of AA's pier and watching the field from there. I don't think you need a ticket to get on the Shuttle bus (I've heard of some of the FlyerTalkers who end up in Siberia, which is the Eagle gates in the main terminal, using the Shuttle bus to get to the Admiral's Club in the main concourse, using the satellite as a transfer point).

Last time I boarded a flight from there (Nov 2003) you did need a ticket to get on the shuttle bus.

Definitely no spotting opportunities from inside the terminal, there are hardly any windows!

Well, Yes and No...there is no 'special' American Eagle only terminal at BOS. All American / American Eagle flights arrive and depart from Terminal B. The bus does drop you off at an enclosed boarding area though...

Quoting HKGKaiTak (Reply 3):

Wait, a boarding pass for a flight departing the area? Because I'm flying on AA Mainline to TUS via DFW on the 22nd. So i'd have to have a boarding pass for an AE flight, not a AA mainline flight?

Yes, you would need a Boarding Pass on an Eagle flight to be allowed on the bus out to the Satellite Terminal.

If I am correct, that terminal used to be the Amelia Earhardt General Aviation Terminal, which housed Signature Flight Support. Sometime around the time that American Eagle took over the assets of Business Express, they acquired this terminal, and general aviation traffic was moved to North Cargo.

I wouldn't go there to spot though. At best you can see the Bravo Hold Point, where planes often taxi by if they use 4R, and sometimes 9 departures are directed that way as well with very little waiting room on S taxiway. Best place to spot used to be the top of the Garage at B, which I believe massport has unfortunately cracked down on for really no great reason, but if your past security I would go to the end of the main pier, should be able to see quite a bit there, but glass may screw with the flash.
