I haven't been through ATL in nearly a year and was wondering if the C and D gates now have jetways for the DL Connections RJ's (CRJ, CR9, E70/E75, CR7). If anyone has pictures that would be great as well. Thx in advance

I know Concorse C has them for the RJ fleet. Haven't been over to Concourse D in a long time due to its use for mostly other airlines. From what I remember back when I flew ATL-ISP back when the route existed out of Concourse C, some aircraft will share a single gate and you had to walk outside.

Concourse C has almost all the jetways installed with about 5 or so to be completed. Concourse D does not have any yet on the Northern side of the terminal but DL Conx does utilize some "city" jetways on the South side of the Concourse ie: Gates D1, D1A, IIRC D11 are also used.

Never use C/D....always park at A/B/E

The E70/75's seem to utilize the gates on A, B, & E...along with Pinnacle, Skywest. Comair and mostly ASA use the gates on C & D. ASA uses all of them except for T.

That is true, I have noticed that some select gates on C have markings (stop points) for the E70/75 but I have yet to see one parked on C or D.

I was sitting in ABC one day (it's on the Delta side of the concourse) and noticed the gate right outside the window had a spot for a 737. Couldn't see the number after it, but it did have 737 as one of the options. I think it was gate 31. It's right at the "C spine"

True true, and starting in March, they'll be parking Mesaba's Saabs at C & D as well.



Good goes around!

Yeah DL asked for this is case of IROP (irregular operations) but I've yet to see one parked therem could see it one day though.

Will be interesting to see them parked to the jetways although I have seen it done in MEM & DTW. I would imagine they will park them on D until the jetways are installed.

MEM is our only ramp-boarding hub at the moment. MSP and DTW always use jetways for the Saabs. MEM occasionally hooks one up, but it's uncommon. At the current time, they will be parking them on D for the most part and using the swing bridges for them. We haven't gotten any information on when we might start using jetways in ATL. Of course, that will be staffed by MEM crews, so I may not have the absolute latest.

Most of these jetways were added within the last year or two, as the last time I flew on EV out of C (October of '06) they used airstairs and then you walked up a stairwell into the terminal. The concourse had a good deal of construction work going on (they were putting the new tile floors in).

When I connected through ATL in August, it semed like most of the gates were still without jetways. I'm not sure how many of the ones that did have them only had them recently put in, but there were alot a blue canopies being used.

My question is with the XJ flying, will they keep at least a few non-jetway gates (like the ones at the end of C)? ATL isn't like MSP or DTW where the concourses were built specifically for RJs/Props with the jetways at ramp level. Can the SF3s be used with the standard upper-level bridges?

Is it safe to say the most CR9 and E70/75 utilize jetways in ATL? I'm flying ATL-IAH at the end of next mth and was wondering what the set up is?

If you are on a CR9, E170, or Mainline, you will have a jetbridge.

Not necessarily true. CR9 and E170/175 aircraft parked on E utilize ramp boarding.

Isn't E used for only international departures/arrivals. Why would E170/175s or CR9 be using the E concourse? They are regional a/c. Also, somebody mentioned about concourse D being used for other airlines, when I was there last D and T both had offline airlines parking there, is D the sole concourse now for offline airlines?

The E170s/CR9s are used for some flights to the Caribbean(NAS, PLS) and southeast Mexico(GDL, MTY, etc) .

E is not just for international. DL does have some dom. Opps out of E.
DL would like not to tho as using an FIS gates cost more than a non-FIS gate



yep.

Within the last year. The movable ramps was a temporary fix because the C gate redesign was pushed back several years. I was suppose to be complete in 2006 and the project still isn't complete.

Region doesn't mean anything. For the longest, ASA operated the majority of their int'l flying from the northeastern side of E (and this is CR2 and CR7 a/c). Also, on occasion, you will see domestic ops out of E. It isn't restricted only to international flights.

Thank you for correcting me. I wasn't aware they did flights to Mexico with those a/c. I used to work for Comair about 4 yrs. ago and we were just getting the E170 and didn't have CR9 yet, so my knowledge about currents happenings in ATL are limited to what my dad tells me.
