Hello guys. A friend and I have been noticing some changes in the utilization of gates at TBIT and Terminal 4 at LAX.

Apparently we have noticed that the Qantas flights that usually park on their inbound legs at either Terminal 4 gates 41 or 43 have for the past few days have been parking at TBIT. Prime example is Flt 93 on both the 20th and 21st usually park at T4 Gate 43, both days they parked at TBIT 101.
We have also been noticing that that the American International flights thsat usually park at 43 or 41 for their arrivals are now parking at the domestic gates such as 48A/B and 49. Is there some sort of construction being performed at Gates 41 and 43?
I guess when you observe the day to day happenings at an airport such as LAX you take note of something that is out of the ordinary. Can anyone help to explain the reason for the deviation from the normal gate ops? I would so much appreciate it...

Cheers, Access-Air

Indeed the C-10 alley has been closed for repaving which effects ops in gates 102-106 and 41, 43, 45, 47A and B.

You read about the details in this LAWA document.

Repaving started Monday this week and is expected to last for at least a month perhaps six weeks.

How is everything going so far? It seems like a lot of shifting around has had to occur to make this happen.
In regards to AA using the C-4 area. do passengers get transported to the hardstands and board immediately or do they have an area for holding prior to boarding.

Did they add additonal jetways at the West Gates for these renovation products or are they all stair boarding?
I've wondered why LAX has never had at least a few mobile lounges?

Buses, buses, buses!!

I was at T4 yesterday and looking out from the Admirals Club, only the ends of the piers were being used. QF had a flight parked at the end of TBIT, and AA had a couple at the end of T4. Most gates had blockades in front of them, but it did look like they had a couple set up to receive jets. It's just that those jets couldn't pass another parked jet in the process. Too close.

They were boarding QF108 to JFK when I was there, and people were bused out to wherever 108 was. Luckily for me, I was on 114 to EWR and we were in 42B, not the odd side. QF108 took off right ahead of us even though they closed boarding over 1/2 hour beforehand, so the boarding process was much longer than it normally is due to the busing.

Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.
