I know it's gonna be a long long time before DFW is ready for another terminal. But what do you think terminal F will be served by? What will be it's purpose?

To replace one of the half-circle terminals which will be torn down.

AAL will be the only big dog in town until it collapses - which may be the 23rd century.

Terminal F isn't coming for quite some time - at least 20 years away. Who knows what the market will be like that far in the future.

It's hard to say. True AA is the big dog right now, but who knows in the future. In any event, with 46 or so empty gates at DFW and the industry in it's current state, I doubt we'll see F anytime soon.

Right, remember they've talked about shutting a terminal down during these tough economic times.

Just think of all the airlines that have come and gone or cut back to skeletal operations at DFW since its construction.

If you look back over the last 10 years passenger counts are not at the 5-7% gain per year on average that happened the decades before.
Much of that growth replaced by internet the last decade, no need to travel.

If you ever thought about a 50% gain per decade in passenger travel that would require massive ongoing airport construction.

I just can not imagine what DAL would have looked like if you had to pack much more traffic in there had DFW not been built. Just imagine what it would cost to buy that much land in one piece and jump through all the hoops of environmental studies and the like to construct a DFW today.

Unfortunately for Dallas, there won't be a Terminal F for a very long time. Between Terminals B and E not being fully utilized, international traffic not being as strong as expected at the new D Terminal, DFW will need a lot more growth before they can justify adding another 25 some-odd gates. If Love Field were to be shut down, opening a new Terminal F would be no-brainer.

I agree with everything that has been said. However, I guarantee you that if AA said they wanted to consolidate into one terminal, DFW's response would be how soon do you want F completed!

In one sense, that would make the airport more efficient with AA in F and D (international ops) and everyone else in E. Terminals A and B could then be bulldozed and C mothballed.

I'm guessing DFW won't ever see a terminal F. Reconstruction, major modifications to A, B, C, and E maybe, but short of hell freezing over and Southwest leaving Love in favor of DFW, they are going to have a mighty hard time filling the space they have now, much less build a new terminal. I've always wondered what DFW would be like today had AA gone ahead with it's linear concourse on the west side proposed back in the 80's/90's. I guess we'll never know.
