Quoting EwRkId (Reply 2): Do you think they will move to Terminal 3 at SFO, even though it's all UA, it's similar to the the Terminal C move that Ua is "Rumored to be doing." It makes sense for connections and such.
I think one of the SFO gate agents that frequently posts on flyertalk said that a move won't happen until they tear down the terminal to build a brand new building as part of the SFO Master Plan. They'll stay where they are with US till about 2015-2016. I don't think there is much space at all for CO at the UA side of SFO, including the Star wing at the International Terminal. But who knows what could happen in a year or two.
The journey of life is not based on the accomplishments, but the experience.

Quoting CALMSP (Reply 4): no plan to move right now. No room to do so. Currently, you will have to leave security if you ly to SFO on UA/CO then connect on the other. MIN connect times will be 1hour
Someone 'in the know' mentioned that an airside *A bus transfer might be in the works for SFO if connecting pax volumes reach a certain threshold. US/CO in Rotunda B might provide the critical mass to make it work.
Hopefully they will move to a "satellite" that is convenient to the lounges, and immigration, etc. Even though T1 CDG is now a centralized Star Alliance terminal, the place is a mess in terms of set-up. The Star carriers are sprawled out across various satellites (in terms of parking/boarding gates) and the various lounges are all over the place too (e.g., the LH lounge is past security but is supposed to be used for LX flights, which are not parked in the same satellite as the LH lounge, etc.), the SK one is prior to security; the Star Alliance common lounge looks to be past immigration but is supposed to be available for use by European Star partners for their Schengen flights as well, etc.
Also, the renovations seem to have been applied only to the departure/check-in area; the rest of the terminal, particularly the gates area, still retain the walls, tiles, etc., of the 1970s and continues to look decrepid and filthy....Terminal 2A, where CO currently is, is no great prize either but the set-up is somewhat less complicated.

yes, and there were using there the AF ex-Concorde lounge which was very big and quite nice. At CDG1, ADP has well renovated and reorganized the check-in part but I agree that the satellites are really awful. Personnaly, I avoid CDG1 at all costs.
