does anyone know what the gate shuffle at ord will be when its all over. CO has moved to terminal 1. Is DL moving all its flights from terminal 3 to 2? then who will be in concourse L? and is B6 staying put in 2? just wondering if anyone has any info out here.
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?
Right now there is an AA MD-80 flying over my house.
What a terrible website, as a native Chicagoan, I am embarassed...you have one of the largest and busiest websites in the world, Ms. Andolino, if you are reading this...hire a graphic designer and get a new website! Even the tiny downstate Illinois airports have better websites...

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).
