ERJ170 I would bet my left arm that you were in for a treat.

My only question is what gate will they operate out of in both CLT and RDU. I don't know much about RDU but i remember hearding something about gates in Terminal A being open.

As for CLT the only gates I can think of would be on D cocourse and those are Intl gates, which would be ncie to able to throw some Intl expansion competition in there.

Keep your eyes peeled for B6FAN's announcement.

RDU has gates A10, A11, and A12 open.. I would assume they would be using A10 as it has the most room.. and it already has everything set up since Independence Air was using it. I think they were looking for 2 gates at RDU though.. from something I seem to recall reading somewhere or something of the sort.. so probably 10 and 12.. 11 doesn't have a jetbridge on it, if I remember correctly.

I wonder where they will travel? JFK and BOS? FLL?

I hope they also come in with something new.. like DEN, NAS, or MSY.. something where they can have a non-compete route..

There are no gates available in CLT, and you can be damn sure that there arent any airlines willing to share theirs.

I'm sure GSO will come on board.. but with CLT having 1206, GSO having 690, and RDU having 1492 daily pax.. they would have a better chance of filling planes out of RDU and CLT than GSO.. but I'm sure GSO is still on their radar due to their lack of LCC service if nothing else.

Yes there are gates available in both Concourse A and D. They are common use gates so it doesn't really matter what the other airlines think, if they don't have a plane at the gate then jetBlue or whoever else can use it.

I thought Delta took over 14.. Hmmm.. I do know I was driving through RDU about 2 weeks ago and saw a DL CRJ at A10.. I don't know why it was there, but it was..

Wasn't Delta looking for a 5th gate at RDU? I thought they would have taken it by now..

Has/Does RDU plan to add a jetbridge at A11? Right now, that gate looks to be completely useless as it's too close to A12 for usage..

I'm always surprised about the gate allocation system where certain gates are designated to certain airlines and I have many questions about it.

Is it like this at every US airport?

Do airlines actually make promotion for their products at the gates they operate from; paint it in their colors, etc?

Do airlines own gates, or do they rent them, and on what terms?

Who distributes the gates? Local airport operators?

Are there certain competition-stimulating laws that assures that current airlines can not block newcomers? Can an airline just buy or rent a gate without using it, but just to prevent competition from using it?

At AMS, there is no such thing as a specific gate belonging to a specific airline. Although airlines are usually at the same piers, the gate you get is always a surprise. And sometimes even the pier can differ.

This system seems more flexible, whereas the US system provides more opportunities for an airline to invest in their landside product and by welcoming passengers already at the gate. But how is that at ORD for example? I can not imagine KLM having a gate just for them as their airplane is only there for let's say 2 hours/day?

I thought the airport authority was holding those. I know Delta and Continental and Nortwest have been overnighting planes in that area. Don't think anyone has the rights to them.

A lot of airports work this way, but more and more are moving towards flexible gates.

Quoting Joost (Reply 15):

Yup, at gates where the airline is the sole occupant, you will find promotions, posters, new destiantion information, and airline specific equipment (overhead signs, ticket readers, seats with airline insignias, etc..)

Quoting Joost (Reply 15):
Do airlines own gates, or do they rent them, and on what terms?

Airlines don't own, but usually have a long term rent on them (10+ years sometimes). Like I said earlier, as those leases are ending, most airports are moving towards month-to-month and flexible gate utilization.

Quoting Joost (Reply 15):
Who distributes the gates? Local airport operators?

Usually an airline will say they want to sign a lease for a certain gate for X amount of time, and the airport will oblige. If they need another gate later, usually the airport will either try to shuffle other airlines around to make the requestor get a gate side-by-side.. or the airline will wait until a concurrent gate becomes available.

Quoting Joost (Reply 15):
Are there certain competition-stimulating laws that assures that current airlines can not block newcomers? Can an airline just buy or rent a gate without using it, but just to prevent competition from using it?

Number 1 is NO. Number 2 is Yes. An airline can ask for 12 gates and only use 2 of them if they are on the long term lease.. American used to own Terminal C at RDU and for 1 or 2 years after JI folded, they held on to the 13 unused gates to prevent other airlines from moving to their side until they finally sold the terminal to RDUAA.. but most of the time, that becomes too much of a financial struggle for the airlines or the airport will work to get the gates available if another airline wants/needs gates..

I think I got it, but if I failed any one, someone please chime in..

Thank you for your participation..

Its not just the passenger numbers they look at. For example, even though RDU has higher passenger numbers, CLT annually brings in $67M more revenue than RDU for the airlines just on the NYC routes due to its higher fares.

So if GSO's fares for NYC were closer to $600 r/t on average then you can bet jetBlue would swoop on in.

A few questions:
Will B6 start service just to JFK and the new temporary gates (coincidence that they open at about the same time)?  scratchchin 

Or also service to BOS? CLT to IAD? (later?) Pardon me for *really* doubting transcons. Even though there would probably be enough demand for BUR-CLT. Don't get me wrong, I would love to see that route! But I don't think it will happen.  Sad

Dare we hope for another gate at FLL to allow service to there too?  spin

Quoting Joost (Reply 15):

Do airlines own gates, or do they rent them, and on what terms?

The answer is yes.  duck  Usually they are leased. However, "common use gates" pay a fee either per use or prorated based on utilization. (e.g., once per day=25% of a monthly gate rental.) The terms are very airport dependent. If an airline helps fund terminal construction, the terms are usually very good. e.g., set lease on the gates, no utilization requirements. Some airports require minimum gate utilization rates if gates are being hogged. Note: at too many of these airports one or two airlines already "holds" the gates sans "minimum use" clauses in their lease.

There are even rare occurances where the airline actually owns the terminal they operate from and simply pay the airport a lease fee for the land plus airside usage fees. IIRC DL at FLL.

Does any airline actually own a terminal and the land under it in the United States? Any at a major airport?

So the answer truly is "all of the above." Usually the method is determined by how the terminal construction is funded and predicted customer demand(Airline financing? City bond? Private investment group?) The trend is toward a greater number of "common use" gates, but there are of course exceptions.

Quoting Joost (Reply 15):
At AMS, there is no such thing as a specific gate belonging to a specific airline. Although airlines are usually at the same piers, the gate you get is always a surprise. And sometimes even the pier can differ.

This is typical of international terminals (e.g., Bradly at LAX). However, in the united states, most airlines that have > 5 flights/day to an airport will have decated gate(s).

Quoting Joost (Reply 15):
Who distributes the gates? Local airport operators?

Here in the US, the major airlines often lease on long term basis from the airport authorities entire huge terminals or concourses.

For instance at LAX, the majority of the terminals are on 20-30 year exclusive leases to tenants. In general tenants are responsible for the upkeep of the facility and can within the airports rules and regulations do pretty much what they want with the facility.

There certainly can be argued benefits and disadvantages to such set ups.

On the postive side, the airport authorities receives a know fixed revenue stream it can use for budgeting purposes for decades to come, they dont need to micro manage their tenants, the airline can establish permanent fixed facilities such as office, lounges or other custom amenities without the worry of loosing the facilities, and being in a constant single location helps staffing and equipment wise not worrying about driving all over the airport to handle flights.

On the negative side, much needed or desired facilities can operate with low utilization, as many leases do not have any use it or loose it clauses, and as such can serve to block new entrants wanting to enter an airport.

Unfortunately more and more of such has developed over the last decade as newer / smaller airlines have found it growing difficult to enter certain airports.

While it has been relatively easy to get an aircraft, finding facilities such as ticket counters and gates can be a significantly more difficult task to accomplish at many of America's airports.

International airlines generally don't have their own gates. Either they use international terminals that have common-use gates (like KLM at ORD or JFK), or they use the gates of one of their alliance partners (like KLM at DTW).

84 ERJ170 : I would have to disagree.. all of those markets are B6/FL hubs/focus cities.. should WN decide to serve CLT, it would probably be BNA, BWI, MCO, LAS
85 Cltguy : So why would someone want to fly SWA on those routes when they can fly US/AirTran/B6 on a big boy jet and get assigned seating as well? Why fly to BW
86 Cltguy : All I can say is Thank God we are building another new parking deck at CLT. Our local boardings went up 17% in 2005 and if things continue along the s
87 MAH4546 : Only two more cities in 2006, probably won't start until November/December, probably Miami and Cancun, pending getting good usage rates (MIA is pay-p
88 Cubsrule : Jerry Orr says that WN is not on the radar. That's not surprising, as CLT has nowhere to put them. I assume B6 will park at Concourse E if the city c
89 Cltguy : WN won't tell Jerry Orr that they are coming till right before a press release comes out saying they are coming. Jerry Orr said the same thing about

91 Cltguy : Expect to set jetBlue use a gate on Concourse A at CLT. Someone on here speculated that jetBlue would use Concourse E...however that concourse is slam
92 ERJ170 : This is excellent news.. but what's going on here.. I went to jetblue.com to see where I could get to from RDU and Florida, MSY, nor the Caribbean was

94 Cltguy : Maybe I am just weird but it would seem silly and out of the way to fly up to JFK then turn around and fly to Florida when you can get their non-stop
95 ERJ170 : You can get to TPA, FLL, and MCO non-stop from RDU.. I'll grant u that. U can not get to RSW, PBI, JAX, MSY, Caribbean non-stop from RDU no matter ho
96 Luv2fly : Though why fill up the plane with connecting traffic when you do not need to.
97 Cltguy : Honey child...you best make note that you can also fly RDU-MIA non stop before MAH gets on here and smacks you up the side of the head. If you actual
98 Post contains images Widebodysrule : Its real simple guys: AA can't and won't match B6 fares. DL can't afford to keep up with the discounted market. When its all said and done, B6 will co
99 ERJ170 : I didn't include MIA cause B6 doesn't offer service to MIA yet. I'm sure it's actually a lot more people than you think. I know for a fact that a lot
100 RDURAMPER : Still no announcement on which gates they'll operate out of at RDU although I'm pretty sure it'll be the old Independence Air gates. Delta will have t
101 Post contains images ERJ170 : I would guess A10 also. How many aircraft DOES Delta overnight at RDU? Do they still park aircraft at the Charter area? Are they still looking for th
102 Cubsrule : A1: DL/OH (leased) A2: UA/AC/Express (leased) A3: DL (leased) A4: UA (leased) A5: FL (City) A6: NW (leased) A7: FL (City) A8: NW/9E (leased) A9: AA (
103 RDURAMPER : At last count, I saw eleven aircraft parked between A11 and A17. I believe that when Independence Air folded that opened up enough ramp space so that
104 Cltguy : A7 AirTran only uses it for 1 flight a day at 7am.
105 Cubsrule : FL is currently at 8 dailies (BWI 2x, ATL 5x, MCO 1x). In May, that goes up to 10, and it appears there will be 3 RONs (one of the MDW flights gets i
106 Flyguy1 : ROFLMAO
107 Gsoflyer : Now that it is official, it is another nail in the coffin for GSO. Since US and Delta are both cutting service, NW no longer serves mainline, and we'v
108 Cltguy : Well that is just tough cookies. That is 14 flights on 2 gates a day...not hard to do at all. If scheduled right you can do 14 flights off of 1 gate
109 Cubsrule : See, that's where we disagree. I think that in just a couple of years, FL and B6 will (combined) be north of 20 dailies. MDW has the potential for so
110 PanAm330 : Welcome to the wonderful world of using a smaller airport. SYR is but one third the airport is used to be. We had over 3 million passengers one year
111 JetBluefan1 : Not gonna happen. The SYR airport authority has to get its act together and lower those fees. JetBlue has so many other options for routes/destinatio
112 JRodriguez136 : It's kind of weird these routes were supposed to be announced in the fall. I guess with Delta pulling back from CLT next month, this was a great time
113 PanAm330 : The City of Syracuse runs the airport (most unfortunately). Therefore, being the tax fiends that they are, they most likely won't cave in to B6's dem
114 Cltguy : If and when that happens they can move to the D gates...since they are all common use it would be a very easy move. The E gate expansion has already
115 ERJ170 : Checking jetBlue's website route map.. Can someone tell me why is it I can see RDU/CLT-other destinations.. but not other destinations to RDU/CLT? I a

117 TWAL1011727 : The MLB airport authority HAS gotten their act together (probably DABs too) and has offered B6 and other airlines around the world, reduced or no fee
