Is CO actually moving to T1 or are they permanently going to have the check-in and baggage claim in T2 like they do now?

I just heard B6 is trying to acquire one more gate in its present terminal. Hopefully by the winter we'll see an expanded schedule to Boston, Florida, and maybe even San Juan.

DL plans on consolidating ops at T2 Concourse E at the NW gates and former CO gates by November 2009.

As for the old DL gates, it's up to the city last time I checked. I wouldn't be surprised if VX gets them, but I wouldn't be surprised if AA gets them, either.

Somewhere on a.net, I read where AA was looking at subleasing those gates on L from DL, when they move.

Wouldn't it have been nice if DL could have stayed and moved NW to L? They probably would have except for the gate leases that AA had.

How many gates might be up for grabs?

CO already moved over to T1, DL will move over in or around November.

Yes, VX is after the L gates along with AA. No, slots were abolished at ORD after the recent opening of Runway 9L/27R.

5 gates total. Three of the five gates are widebody-compatible, and two of the widebody gates can hold up to a 777-sized aircraft (the third can hold up to a 763). There's also a Crown Room Club/SkyClub that Delta is vacating that could easily be turned into a third Admirals Club. Hence AA's interest in the gates. If AA got the L gates from DL, I wouldn't be surprised if once the 787 enters the AA fleet, we could see the likes of GRU, GIG, DXB, and (finally) HKG served from ORD. Another possibility from more L gates is some additional "thin" 75E routes to Europe such as BCN, STN, year-round FCO (does the 75E have the range?), or increased/adjusted frequencies on traditional AA favorites such as LHR and CDG in the near term.

If AA happened to get the gates on L, would the possibility of adding Customs/Immigration facilities for AA Intl arrivals even be viable? It would definitely give AA an edge over UA. AS will still operate out of Concourse L, correct?

AA handles AS at ORD, so I don't think that will change.

It was cool seeing a Continental jet at T1 on Sunday! Although the folks in charge at O'Hare don't seem to know that CO has moved...

So does FWA, for that matter. Even FWA's old website, designed way back in the days when everyone used Internet Explorer 5.0, 5.5, or 6, Netscape was on life support, and Firefox, Safari, and Google Chrome weren't even invented yet, was better than ORD/MDW's current website.

To me, it looks like the City of Chicago used an old version of Microsoft FrontPage to create the website, which (surprise!) is no longer supported by Microsoft. Sites created in FrontPage don't render correctly in anything but older, dying versions of Internet Explorer and are known to have issues with newer versions of IE such as IE7 and IE8 in addition to well-known issues in Firefox, Safari, and Google Chrome. If the City wants to keep it in-house, I suggest upgrading to software that supports web standards such as Adobe DreamWeaver, NetObjects Fusion, or Microsoft Expression Web (Microsoft's clean-sheet replacement for FrontPage, with true standards support).

The City of Chicago will only upgrade their website if someone's brother-in-law can make some money doing it.  Wink
