According to DFW, HP/US are moving over to Terminal E next month
and will be using gates 22-26 in the sattelite terminal. Mtc has been getting all the escalators back up and running, Riders bar, Pizza Hut and the gift shop are ready to go again. Plans fell thru when the budget was cut for remodeling the south end of terminal E where Customs/Immigrations were. Mesa and Midwest are expectedto move to Terminal E next month also...possibly gates 21 & 33.

Maybe now Fegan & Cox can rip all the "Southwest @ DFW" signs down
from terminal E's parking garages.

Don't Midwest and Mesa share gates with US right now in B? Why wouldn't they be in the satellite with them when they move? Also, why wouldn't they (US/HP) move to the main part of E? Anyway, I'm not complaining; it'll be nice to see jetways at the satellite again Big grin

AA is going to take over the rest of B, giving them all of A, B and C for their ops. The A Satellite for Eagle will be closing, so those flights will be moving to B.

The A Satellite is already closed. All Saab flights and some RJ have moved over to the lower A-gates (A9 and up) and the ramp behind those gates and other RJ have moved to a couple gares in the upper B (B33 and B34?). I just noticed the Eagle signs outside the upper B gates with United.

Well that sucks, becuase thats exactly where I have my own fake airline in FS based, those exact gates. Hum...?

Seriously though, maybe this is a sign of the new US changing things for the better?

UA is not planning on moving over to E. From what we heard
from the airport was...UA wanted the old E34 Delta Crown Room
but the airport said that was going to be used by the airport for
their own use. DFW is ran by a bunch of bafoons!

Whoa, I knew US was moving to Terminal E, but I was not expecting this. I like it. Not only will it be open and spacious, but I was afraid US was going to be stuck in the alley. Where are the jetways coming from?

This is funny. I was just about to ask when US was moving.

No -- United will not be moving to E, as they sunk a few mil into a brand new RCC right underneath the new high-B SkyLink station, where their gates are, and as such are not going to waste all that investment. So, Eagle will have gates B3-B25, and B31-B39.

That's because E3 doesn't exist - it is an escalator down to the ramp when DL used to park the Brasilias on the stand and bus people over there.

So, only E2 is available - along with E10. NW uses E2 sometimes and CO uses E10 sometimes.

Actually, the DFW management team is among the most professional in the United States. You may not agree with their decisions or perspective, but having met and worked with many of them closely over the past year, I can vouch for the fact that they are doing the best they can, and that they are dedicated to their jobs.

Thanks for the info. I was looking at the terminal map on Dfwairport.com. It shows gate E3 on it. I remember flying Delta through DFW back in 85. I remember there was glass wall down in the lower gates where ASA use to fly out of.

I did not know that, so what are they going to do with the A satellite, it seems like a waste to close such a nice building.

Some jetways from the high B gates (30+) have been removed, so this may be the source of jetways for the E Satellite. I would expect these open gateboxes will be the new hardstand area for Eagle's Saabs.

Why doesn't AA just stop the charade and kick out everyone else and take over A, B, C, D, and E for their ops?  Angry

You are kidding, right? You cannot be serious. DFW management are a bunch of incompetent boobs with no clue on how to run and manage an airport and bring in new carriers. They are nothing but a bunch of AAss kissers, except they forgot that for all their brown nosing of AA, AA gives them peanuts in return.

Well, when you airport relies on an airline like AA at DFW, you would be kissing too. Same with DAL and WN. Same with ATL and DL. Same with CLT and US. Same every other airline.

I don't see the problem here. It isn't like AA is making airlines stop flights to DFW.

Rktsci...with all do respect...Dude, I have listened to Fegan & Cox....
their concept is if they build it...the airlines will come.....thats HOLLYWOOD!

If Fegan & Cox would stop kissing AAss and focus on running an airport, they might just be lucky and have an outstanding operation.

They have spent money and still spending money like drunken millionaires...and their minds are clouded by trying to woo an airline who has no plans in the past, the present or in the future to come to DFW. This airport spends more time wishing for something they don't have rather than taking care of what they do have. 3 airlines are gone now, several have downsized and AA is going to give it to them in the booty if they don't get what they want!

Why are they so afraid of one little airport and one airline. Their breath smells like crap from all the AAss kissing they have done over the years. DFW is now one of the most expensive airports to operate...its just business.

It's time to set LUV free, let SWA fly unrestricted...and for DFW to take down all those DAMN signs saying Southwest is at DFW...oh it's also time for
FEGAN & COX to be fired! "SAVE DFW, FIRE FEGAN & COX"

The A Satellite was designed to be temporary. In my opinion it's not such a nice building. And regardless of its structural and/or architectural merits, it's a pain to get to and only makes the passenger experience, be it connecting or O&D, worse for DFW passengers who have the misfortune of being on a flight assigned to the building.  twocents

What is so difficult to understand that with the completion of D and DL's hub dismantling there is now plenty of space for DFW to shuffle airlines around in a manner which makes more logistical sense? A Satellite was designed to be temporary. So what makes sense to do when DL leaves the majority of E and international airlines that used to be in B move to D? To me, it seems, it makes perfect sense to have all your non-AA domestic carriers at E (if they can fit, which they can), and continue to grow AA's Eagle ops at B. Not only does this make sense for the airlines, but it also makes sense for the passengers, as it gives them a more consistent, convenient and fluid experience.

I think it would be better if we stopped letting resentment and hostility about unrelated topics cloud our judgment on this issue.
