When will airports start merging NW and DL ops into one area or at least changing the gates to DL gates? I read in another thread this already happened to some airports in the Upper Midwest where DL doesn't fly to, but what about the others?

I work in Operations at MCO and I got an email the other day that Northwest will be moving to Airside 4 at the end of January. Northwest is currently in Airside 3. They will be using Gates 72, 74 and 76 at MCO, which are in the same wing as Delta.

Makes sense that they're using those gates - I think DL pretty much uses those gates for overnights.

Is there any chance that DL reinstalls the jetway at Gate 70? With the 60s gates being closed now, they don't need to manuever RJs around that gate anymore. It could make sense, since the combined carrier will have 16 mainline overnights at MCO (5x ATL, 2x DTW, 2x LGA, 1x each to MEM, MSP, BOS, JFK, LAX, SLC, CVG). As it stands, DL uses some of the 80s gates for the evening arrivals/morning departures. It will get a bit tight when NW moves in at midday (2x ATL, plus IND, MSP, MEM, BOS, BDL, LGA, JFK and CVG all needing gates), and possibly around 5:30 p.m. as well (MSP, DTW, GRR, ATL x2, BDL, JFK, LGA, LAX, and it's tough to get a gate on the 80s concourse at that time, with LH, BA, VS x2 minimum, AM and TAM more or less filling up this concourse). Could make sense for DL to get that jetway back on there and have 9 gates that they can use.

I heard they are going to have a net decrease of approximately 150 gates worldwide. This will save Delta $200 million annually.

Anyone else have any specifics about things like that?

I'm interested to see what's going to happen at MSY. Currently DL uses 3 of the 7 gates on Concourse D. CO has 3, and B6 has one. NW has 2 gates on the other side of the airport in Concourse A. I figure when it comes time to merge DL & NW ops at MSY, B6 will probably get kicked out of Concourse D giving DL & NW 4 gates to use.

How about the ticket counters? Add LCD arrival and departure boards instead of large manual boards?

What happens in MKE? Currently DL is using I believe 2 gates in the C hammerhead. F9, AA, UA, AC, FL, and US are all also over in the C concourse. NW is over in E on the other side of
the airport. What I think the most likely scenario to happen would be would be for DL and CO
to swap places, moving CO into the C gates (Which could easily be done since the gates are
semi common use on C), and moving DL to E which would give NW/DL E to themselves.

Correct according to DeltaNet (which btw, whoever it is that does DLNet needs to learn about the stations more because they couldn't spell Bemidji correctly, finally fixed) anyway the stations that have the new "Delta Signs" are Hibbing/Chisholm, Brainerd, Duluth/Superior, International Falls, Rochester, St. Cloud, and Thief River Falls.

Grand Forks already has the Delta blue painted behind and they removed the real ticket signs and replaced it with a cheap looking nwa/klm sign.

EWN (Coastal Carolina Regional Airport | New Bern, NC) is all Delta so no changes.

RDU currently has NW at A5, A6 and DL at C8, C9, C10, C11, C15, and C16. I suspect NW will simply be absorbed into Delta gates with any additional gates needed.

...with all the L10's, D8S, and 767-2/3 parked down at the "rotunda" area at the end of the terminal....a sight that I miss to say the least.

When the "new" Concourse D opened in 1995, the article talking about it in the local paper had a large title that read "Delta's Big D"...it had 4 jetways when it opened (all built for wide body jets which DL requested) and it was DL's and DL's alone until CO moved in during the early 00's. In the terminal itself while it was under construction, DL had several displays with artists renditions of the terminal, showing a 767 at a gate, another one lifting off, and a couple of more DL jets lounging about.

Same here. I'd say it's probably a question of when, not if, NW will move to D.

Here's the ones I know of:

DCA- Will be moving in together 6/8 (at least break rooms & other facilities-no idea on gates)

MSN- NW will take over Comair's operation in July. Expect all gates/facilities to be merged then. NW currently uses gates 8/9/10, and RON's flights on 1/2/4. Comair uses gate 3. There may be an airport wide "shuffle," so no idea on what the final assignments will be.

MCO- As noted, moving at the end of this month.

We were also told by local management that MCO will be kind of the bell weather for any moves that may come. Anything that will happen across the system will most likely occur there first. Not sure why they're the testbed (my term) for consolidation, but here we are.

It's also important to note, that while these moves may happen, *actual* integration is a ways off yet. What I mean by that is that NW & DL might be at consolidate gates/ticket counters/facilities, but won't be physically working each other's flights for some time.

Haven't heard anything from SEA, but it would make sense for DL to move into the S-councourse with NW. The lounge is there, as well as a large number of NW dates that are underutilized. In addition, this is where the FIS is located, which will make for easy connections to domestic flights.

SAN ticket counter is scheduled to move to Delta T2 West on March 16th if approved by airport authority. Kiosks moved to lobby from counter and 4 additional added.

116 FWAERJ : As for FWA's situation... all gates at FWA are on a CUTE system, though NW Airlink typically uses gates 4 and/or 5 and DL Connection typically uses ga
117 Pilotboi : Mind explaining what a CUTE system is? I've never heard of such a thing, but it sounds like something that allows flexibility in gate usage.
118 NWAESC : CUTE=Common use. Filler... Filler...

121 VC10DC10 : Yes, please let us know... I would love some NWA schwag!

128 Post contains links NWAESC : Here's a teeny blurb about combined ops in TUS... Scroll down a bit to find it... http://www.azbiz.com/articles/2009/0...avel/doc497a020a1443764057087
129 DTWAGENT : TOL has been completed. And DTW is expected to be done by the end of March or early June 2009.
130 Atrude777 : Hey- So STL is done already then? I am flying out of STL on Northwest Feb 7th. Do I check in at the Delta Ticket Counter then? I ask cause DL and NW t
131 NWADC9 : Even the tram? EVERYTHING?
132 Pilotboi : I may have missed it, but who here said that STL is done?
133 Atrude777 : I was going by the link that was given which says... STL St Louis, MO Gates A2, A4, and A6 Gates A3 and A5 Together Does that not mean they are toget
134 Cubsrule : The gates are together. Ticket counters, AFAIK, are not. The site will read "rebranding complete" or some such once they've merged.
135 Pilotboi : Correct. What I meant as "Together" on the site is that the gates are next or near to each other, and no moving of gates will have to take place. Cub
136 Atrude777 : Ok, again as "together" meaning Delta signage on the gates including NW or simply the LOCATION is together? All righty, gotcha. Yes I knew the site i
137 Cubsrule : FWIW, they won't be fully 'together' even once it's rebranded because non-CUTE gates (like the ones in question at STL) won't have the right computer
138 ERJ170 : Here's the newest word on RDU.. Northwest Airlines will relocate to Terminal 2 in the spring! So that probably means in either March or April.. Delta
139 Burnsie28 : You will continue to check-in with your operating carrier.
140 NWADC9 : I thought it didn't matter anymore, and the check-in kiosks can do both DL and NW reservations...
141 NWAESC : Depends on which city you're flying in/out of... As of right now, not all cities can do this yet... For example, in my station you won't be able to u
142 Sdexplorer00 : Branding won't be completely Delta until one airline. In the meantime, stations are getting decals that say "Now Serving NWA" to be added to Delta si
143 PSU.DTW.SCE : PLN (Pellston, MI) is rebranded as of this past week. It was done when I flew through there on Friday. Just put up the DL branding in the check-in cou
144 ERJ170 : And for RDU, the gate situation has been decided.. At RDU, the move means a net loss of one gate. Northwest currently has two gates in Terminal 1; acc
145 PeachAir : Seems like a logical solution, but there will be a different solution. The old UA bridges are no good - too costly to remove. Again - logical conclus
146 NWADC9 : So will this also be the time when DL mingles with the Red Tails in A and moves out of B, and Connection goes with the Mini Tails in C? And where's t
147 IndyWA : Apparently it's still cheaper using A1 vs. C3. Plus, the DL ops is remaining below the A concourse..don't ask me, just passing the info along! lol
148 KingAir200 : I don't think you will see DL over on A until the union representation issues are solved. They seem resistant to NWA taking over work from contractor
149 NWAESC : Yeah they do! It sure seems contrary to all of the memos they've been putting out... I wonder why that is?
150 WorldTraveler : why is it contrary? DL isn't asking NW to allow DL to handle any NW flights at DL stations. There is a clear line between the 2 carriers and DL is res
151 KingAir200 : Not in stations where NWA has mainline employees anyway. However, in SJU, COS, SLC, and BDL DL now works NWA. There are those who say they are lying.
152 Atlanta : They should paint it navy blue,like the livery, and a white Delta logo! Atlanta
153 Dmt52 : I was in DTW yesterday and one of the international (dual jet bridge gates) on the south end of the terminal had the new Delta branding on it. It was
154 Mayor : Well, wasn't NW contracted out in SLC, anyway? Or am I missing the gist of this conversation? I have NEVER seen such a bunch of paranoid people.
155 NWAESC : I'm not talking about cities where DL mainline has employees. What KingAir200 and I are referencing are the memos put out that claimed that any stati
156 ChiefNWA : Im going to guessNW will move to E at TPA. Anyone know when thats due to happen.
157 KingAir200 : Unemployment of over 10% in your home state will do that to you. Besides, talk is cheap. Plenty of people in positions of authority say they will do
158 KingAir200 : Correct. They were. I was just clarifying that some stations have been handed over. WT was somewhat ambiguous in his comment.
159 NWAESC : This is an excellent point. DL mainline has taken over in some locations where NW was outsourced, but there have been zero places where we've (NW M/L
160 Smcmac32msn : From what I've seen, NW rarely uses 67-69 at MKE other than RON flights and at other times have no more than 1-2 planes at any given time for their 6
161 Smcmac32msn : Here's what E would then look like when the swap would move USA3000 to C. DL/NW would have 63-69+60. CO would move from 63 to 61 and stay at 62. USA m
162 Nwa320 : I was at MSP the other day and noticed that the changed all the Concourse A jetway signs to Delta. I saw the Delta A320 too. They seemed to be taking
163 Burnsie28 : Yes... Are you sure it was a DL 88 from SNA? Because DL doesn't fly that route and NW people don't handlle DL flights, so it should have gone into E.
164 NWAESC : Maybe SNA was the originating city (ie. SNA-SLC-MSP)? Sometimes the monitors show flights that way...
165 Nwa320 : Thats what the monitors and the gate said, but now that I think about it SNA probably was the originating city. That makes sense, considering the pla
166 Jcarv : NW is suppose to move to Terminal A sometime this March.
167 Airtechy : I think at MCO, NW has now moved to the B side. Jim
168 NWAESC : Correct. Also correct. For what it's worth, in MSN DL (Comair) is moving/consolidating into NW's facility in July. An airport-wide gate reshuffling i
169 ElBandGeek : NW was already in B side....they just moved to the other end, from Airside 3 to 4
170 Pilotboi : And it was the biggest move so far for any NW+DL station.
171 Lfutia : When is DL moving over to T2 at ORD? Leo
172 ElBandGeek : I think the better question is when is CO moving to T1? Because until that happens, there'll be no room for DL to move in (I still wish they were sta
173 AeroHero128 : DCA Understatement of the year. Maybe NW will just foreclose their space for simplicity's sake? G/L, guys... JFK Much simpler. Given DL already owns t
174 Burnsie28 : Just to add, domestic flights are, the international flight will operate out of E. So I wonder if some shuttle is going to be set up since NW sells f
175 Lfutia : Where is CO going to go in T1? The only thing I could think of is just sending more of UA Express over to an already crowded T2. Leo
176 Bobnwa : Are you sure that both the arrival and departure of the AMS flight will be out of Terminal E? For many years, NW operated all international departure
177 Burnsie28 : Thats whats on RADAR, but that flight has been operating out of E for quite sometime since NW Domestic flights have been at E for quite sometime now.
178 ElBandGeek : With the capacity cuts, I doubt they'll have trouble finding a couple spare gates in T1 if they tried. It's more a moving of moving things around so
179 Lfutia : Thats what I thought as well hmm... time will only tell when they'll move. I'm so curious to see who is going to takeover the DL gates! I know they a
180 DeltaL1011man : DL will be taking the 6 gates on T4B that face T3/2. the AMS flights will leave from A and deplane at E then get towed over to A to leave.
181 JCarv : I would agree with Bobnwa. Unless something was worked out with Massport, all AMS departures will be out of Terminal A. All other tenants with Intern

183 Mayor : Actually, AA leases their gates at L FROM DL, not the other way around. I actually wish they could get AA moved from L and move NW into those gates a

188 Mke717spotter : Does anyone know when NW is going to relinquish its three gates and ticket counters at ATL?
189 DeltaL1011man : right. I have a feeling that one of two things happened. A) would make DL more money by moing 100% out of L letting AA take over all of L or B) the l
190 Mke717spotter : Oh really, so until all the "rebranding" is complete will only NW continue to operate out of D13-16? How long are NW's ticket counters going to stick

192 ERJ170 : At Norfolk (ORF), Delta and NW are currently in the same concourse B with their gates together.. DL currently has B21, 23, 24 and NW has gates B27 and
193 Smcmac32msn : Think they can grab up 11 and 15 right next to UA?? 11 is only used when AC is there at the same time or UA has 2 there. I've only seen F9 at 15 once
194 Lfutia : Oh oops.. You think AA would expand slightly in the L concourse?
195 Pilotboi : How are CHA's gates layed out? I can't find a single map online.
196 USPIT10L : I know PIT is listed as separate on your website, but DGS is hiring again and they are including a "porter" position. Is that what DGS calls CSRs? I'm
197 NWAESC : The gates are staying, AFAIK.... I was told by an ATL employee that the ticket counter and bagroom will be "going away soon." He assumed it to be som
198 FWAERJ : What he probably means is that DL is assuming NW's ATL gate leases and that D13-D16 at ATL are now additional Delta gates. After all, gates are scarc

200 FutureUScapt : Anyone know what the plan is for PHL? I know DL just moved to A-East and built a new club over there, so logic would suggest NW move to A-East, but th

206 NWADC9 : From what I hear, for MCI, NW's ditching C and joining DL in B, with UA taking NW's spot in C. Moving day's 4/1.
207 Dalb777 : Is this do-able??? I still think they need to kick B6 out and utilize all 4 gates on the DL side of Concourse D.
208 MSYtristar : I guess technically it is, but it'll probably a challenge. I'd like to see B6 move back to C, and I think that's really a better option for their ope
209 Cubsrule : Why would they want to pack up and move once they've been in the new space for 5 years? It seems like a needless expense.
210 Nwaesc : I know that NW is at least moving into DL's facility (breakrooms, etc.) soon. Not sure when the moves to DL's gates will occur...
211 USPIT10L : Well, I just got off the phone with the DGS manager in PIT. NW and DL will begin combined ops on March 10th. I presume they'll use the same gates as b
212 Phllax : This makes no sense. CO is down to 2 gates as it is now, and they need both of them. They also hard stand 1 IAH RON or park it at D10. The simplest t
213 Happydad : When I spoke to my contact in PHL, the idea was more of moving gates in D to free up space for DL + NW to be together (I got the idea they were stayi
214 USPIT10L : It appears DL will add D84 and D82 to their gates, and leave D81 and D83 vacant. Go figure. I should've known DL would take the cheap route, especial
215 PeachAir : DL will observe the contract the requirments and respect those requirements until the union issue is resolved one way or the other. Are you sure the
216 Ramprat74 : Maybe CO will be using some of UA's 5 gates. They are suppose to be combining some of their ops together.
217 KingAir200 : It said NWA employees. No mention of the IAM was made, though I would chalk that up to the undecided union issues. In short, if NWA has mainline empl
218 NWAESC : Yes it did. If any given city had NW mainline ramp, and the DL work was outsourced, then the NW ramp would take over the work. Same story in the hand
219 DeltaL1011man : free rent. DL owns L so they wouldn't have to pay gate leases if they could get all into L. I'd bet this is what they wanted to do but couldn't do to
220 Cubsrule : While I don't know the specifics of ORD gate leases, it's unlikely that DL will pay rent for L once they vacate it. The airport can likely lease the
221 PeachAir : DL does not need the FIS gate for the outbound aircraft. Since AF will be leaving PHL - the DL aircraft would occupy the same A-West arrival gate tha
222 Burnsie28 : It was posted, just nobody from DL apparently got it. You learn in life that you never ever actually own land property. So while DL "owns it" they re
223 Cubsrule : What are you talking about? If I own land (i.e. in fee), it's mine. Airline gates, in this country at least, are generally leased, though.
224 Smcmac32msn : You do...... until IDOT decides they want to expand the road you live on and claims 'emminant domain'. Then its no longer yours....
225 PSU.DTW.SCE : A number of the jetbridges on the A concourse in DTW now have the DL signage on the exterior. There are about 5 of the inner-A gates (DC-9/A319/A320 g
226 Cubsrule : But that doesn't make my ownership of it in the present any less absolute, does it? If I own the land subject to a utility easement, I still own it.
227 Smcmac32msn : How much do you own of it? Down to the earth's core? Just the surface grass? You only own it until somebody wants it more, ask Palestine.
228 Cubsrule : The law, in this country anyway, says that I own it from the center of the Earth to the heavens.
229 AKelley728 : Back to the thread topic... I have been flying in/out of Richmond the last two months, here is what I see: DL and NW ticket counters are next to each
230 PHLBOS : For Terminal D, wouldn't it be simpler just to move WN from D1 through D4 over to NW's E gates thereby giving WN ALL of E. If anybody should consolid
231 Burnsie28 : Not really Check the law again, you don't. You can get up to X amount of feet above and below as "yours" and you don't own the land, for instance if
232 Atrude777 : Any updates to STL? I forgot to ask the gate agent in STL when I flew out last week. Terms of ticket counters, someone has to move somwhere. Gate wise
233 Atrude777 : Not letting me edit.. I wanted to add I did see a NWA CR2 at A-6 a Delta gate in STL boarding, though perhaps maybe A-6 did used to be a NWA gate so..
234 Amwest2United : Any word on CMH? I think that NW Ramp will remain??
235 Nwaesc : That is what we at NW have been told. Basically, if there's NW ramp now-and DL ramp is outsourced- then the NW ramp stays....
236 Phllax : I just cannot see that happening in PHL with the amount of flights UA has (especially with the 2nd LAX flight coming back) and the amount of gates th
237 PeachAir : Looking at April for NW move to DL
238 Cubsrule : Several of the gates on that side of the concourse are CUTE, IIRC. The one that US uses for the PIT flights (12?) is one such gate, I believe. No, if
239 DeltaL1011man : DL payed for and (unless given to ORD in BK) flat out owns L. DL built it wayyyyyyy back in the day when they had large opps out of ORD. So what is l

241 Lfutia : I talked to a Delta rep a few days ago at ORD and I asked them if they know when they are moving and they said that they have no idea and they don't k
242 CompensateMe : Or maybe DL thinks that it can profit off leasing out its facilities in "L" & assuming NW's (and perhaps CO's gates). DL could easily handle NW's fli
243 CompensateMe : As an addendum to my previous posting, at ORD: -- NW has four gates (E9, E11, E13 & E15). NW generally tops out at 22 daily departures to DTW, MEM and
244 Lfutia : Granted that AA has 6 gates L side, the only one's ive seen used are L2B, L4, L6 & L8 leaving L1 and L2A unused. Leo
245 Mayor : Actually, no. Operations have steadily declined since the early 80's when DL had 90 flights a day out of H concourse in T2. Not sure what it was when
246 Burnsie28 : Well you should know that the RADAR is really no longer RADAR, it was posted on RADAR before it was switch to DeltaNet.
247 Bobnwa : Still have access to PARS via RADAR, so where do I look to see that NW 38 departs from terminal E this summer. Again all info shows all BOS arrival a
