Nice pics.

Just curious, but is it just those jetways, or is it the A330 in terms of the door just barely clearing the canopy?

It's a little tight but it works fine. Not sure if this is an issue on other bridges. Maybe NWAESC can adv...

Is A-16 usable with the 330 at 15?

No - we loose A16 with the A330 at A15, and A14 is limited to B737-800 while the A330 is there.

Looks to be an FMC (JBT) PLB which are the same PLB's NW (DL) has in DTW and pretty much everywhere else.

Why is A-14 limited? From the looks of your pics, it seems like there is more than enough room for a 757 to park on that gate even with the A330 on A16...

I know at HNL the canopy can not be used when the A330 is on stand. It's very clear that the canopy wont clear the door when it is open. I wonder if the 777 has similar problems, that has a 'sliding' door of similar mechanism, right?

Is there no room on the end where the 767s used to park?

WOW, I didn't think the A333 could fit in there. I always heard the biggest thing you could fit in there was a 763. Nicely done. Massport must be lovin' it, to finally free up an "international" gate. Too bad there's no demand for it these days.

Very cool, I'll be in BOS on Friday morning and then again on Saturday afternoon, so I hope I can snag a couple pictures of this. Just out of curiosity, how many 330s are painted in the DL colors now? Thanks for sharing.

I've never waited very long at Logan in T-A because they keep the shuttle/first class line moving quite quickly. I'm not sure if Silver Medallions can use that line, but the regular line shouldn't be that bad at 6:30pm...

I'm sure many on here, myself included would appreciate if you could explain the abbreviations used? (I get the DTW one  Wink )

Thanks

Lines shouldn't be too bad then - there are flights to ATL, TPA, JFK, LGA, DTW, BWI and DCA that leave during that time. It will be busy but not horrible.

Silvers cannot access the First/Shuttle line at Boston. Plats, Golds, Crown Room members, First/Business Class and LGA passengers only for that line.

Yeah, just in time to give them to Southwest...

How many of those gates will WN use? All of the ones NW left behind or are some in fact going to be devoted solely to international arrivals?

So was Delta people working this flight on the ground? Or are NW people still doing it? I saw that the Delta tug was pulling it over but I thought that right now until union issues are sorted that only NW folks could work the flights?

Trust me, BOS hasn't lost enough international service for that gate to go unused.  Wink

Gate 3A, which was a NW gate and almost exclusively where the AMS flight departed, now belongs to Massport. SWA will go on gates 1 and 2, I believe.

Ahh that makes sense. It would be a waste for a gate that can be used by widebodies was taken up by 737s all of the time.

Northwest has One international gate at terminal E. All its other gates at E were domestic only gates. Did you see the pictures of the A330 being towed to A for the departure?

Maybe it's a length issue, so that when the 330 pushes back and lines up on the taxiway, the wingtips have adequate clearance.

Not entirely free - the arrival will still have to deplane at E.

Uh yes I saw the pictures? Not sure where you were getting at, I was under the impression that all the gates at E were able to be used for International.

Yes, but it's better that it comes in, deplanes and goes freeing up the gate for another Terminal E user who then won't have to tow off a gate to a remote stand only to be towed back later when a gate frees up.
