I remember when look up SEA-TAC airport website many times. I know that North satellie used to be used by all of UA and lately UA has lose some of gates to AS. I am wonder if it is reason due to UA cut some of flights and routes out of SEA? Does AS made some agreement with UA to use some of their gates or give up gates for some money?? (sorry if I do not make any sense)

Quoting Boston92 (Reply 1): OFF topic here...but where does the SEA-NRT 777 come from?
We gain and lose domestic three-class 777 service from ORD-SEA (mornings) and SEA-DEN (evenings) throughout the year. Sometimes they just fly the same plane back and forth between SEA-NRT and sometimes they rotate it around the system - often one going ORD-SEA-NRT-XXX and then another doing XXX-NRT-SEA-DEN.

There is still a daily SEA-IAD-SEA on an internationally-configured 763 however.[/quote]
Actually the 767-300 comes in from Europe from BRU and continues onto SEA. From there I dont know where it goes, but when we load it they always ask for extra boards and empty cans for all the freight the do there.
The opinions I post are of mine and mine alone, not of the airline I work for.
No they haven't...not sure where you heard that or where you got the idea (B6 moved from N to A, but that's it). Aside from the NRT arrival at the S gates, all of UA's flights at SEA depart/arrive at the N gates.
That said, I've noticed quite a few more AS birds at the N gates the last few times I've been to SEA. Additionally, QX has moved into the B gate closest to their ramp at the C terminal...should be interesting to see where the two airlines find room for expansion in the coming year.
