Quoting PremoBrimo (Reply 7): It does seem like a very large main terminal building for only around 50 gates.
I have read that this first major airport in the country to be designed and built from the ground up since 9/11, so they've created a large gathering area (Civic Plaza) for passengers to spend time with their families, eat, shop, etc. prior to going through security.
jetBlue? I know Indy has been begging jetBlue for years to come...this, I would think, will attract them.
Quoting PremoBrimo (Reply 9): where will the Delta(Northwest) Royal Crowne Room(WorldClub) be located
Good question, I was thinking about that myself. Somebody out there must have some info...
To my knowledge, it hasn't been released which airlines will be in A and B and which gates they will utilize. However, by looking at the restaurants/retail locations, I think it's safe to say Southwest and AirTran will be in Concourse B and legacy carriers dominating Concourse A.

It will be interesting to see how many gates US Airways ends up with as well. They had all of Concourse D in the current terminal for several years and just let United in a few years ago, but they still have I think 6 or so gates.

Quoting STLGph (Reply 17): Cinnabon is not making the move. Nor is Auntie Anne's, Chick Fil A, Hatworld, Perfumania, Back Home Indiana, or Subway.
Auntie Anne's did come to mind when I saw the list...I am thinking there may be a few more names like this surface closer to opening. HatWorld and Lids are the same company.
Quoting ERJ170 (Reply 18): Will they have ticketing islands? Are they going to flat screen arrivals/departure monitors? Will the gate areas have flat screen monitor boards or will they be airline specific?
Yes and Yes as RW said. Probably from hhgregg, another Indy company.
