According to our local ABC news station, DTW will demolish the L.C. Smith and J.M. Davey terminals in favour of a new 47 gate complex for use by all other airlines besides Northwest!! Any thoughts?

And where will this new terminal be located?
What we've been told is:

The L.C. Smith terminal will be torn down, and the C, E and G concourses will be leveled.

All other airlines will occupy the D and F concourses.

A new 747 maintenance hangar will be built on the current G concourse site.

Dear All,

Good for DTW. On another thread, someone commented a couple of days ago that Delta's snazzy CVG hub concourses contrast sharply with the run-down 1950s and 1970s slum occupied by the other carriers (which was already run-down when I used CVG regularly in the late '80s!). Shame on CVG.

Northwest's new DTW midfield terminal, judging from the website, looks like a winner--efficient layout, good architecture, and lots of services. The non-hub airlines should have good facilities too. DTW is long overdue for new terminals. Northwest should not be the only beneficiary.

Will the Berry Terminal be demolished too, or left open for charter airlines and airlines like BA, LH, and AF?

Thanks for your replies...

Question: Did the report give any indication as to when the demolition would begin? Is Concourse A part of the L.C. Smith terminal? I remember there was a press release back in November 1999 saying that two gates were demolished in concourse A to build a 6 gate addition to be used by Spirit and Southwest. The new gates opened in Nov.


Seems kind of wasteful to spend all that money to expand Concourse A and then turn around and demolish it. Or was this construction just intended to be a temporary relief?
