Boston Logan's official Facebook says there will be "News out of Logan tomorrow and it is not about snow. Stay tuned."

Any ideas what this will be about?

They will officially announce that the rumours about an A380 visiting the airport were correct.
Better late than never.

Hopefully it's something worth hearing, and it's something positive! I can't wait to hear it, but I have a feeling it's not going to be something I want to hear about.

Can't remember where I saw it (possibly on their Twitter feed), but I recall reading a few months ago that they were in the process of redesigning their website, and that the new site would go live in early 2010.

My bet is that someone is opening BOS-BRU service. This is the only major financial center in Europe that does not have a Boston connection.

Purely a thought, but more WN service and new citie(s) possibly?

How about the announcement of Immigration and Customs services in Terminal A? That would be a huge deal! Other options, Continental moves back to terminal C and Alaska moves to A.

My guess is the inauguration of the new terminal E wing for WN. It's been under construction for a while now and last week it was looking less like a contruction site and more like the terminal it's supposed to be.
Another guess of mine is the introduction of full body scanners.

An airport web site would never trump an airline announcement. Airline routes, properly, should be announced by the airlines...not the airports. For that reason I think the news has to do with Logan per se rather than any new airline route.

My guess is Terminal E will be renamed Terminal D. Remember a year or two ago, Terminal D was reestablished as part of Terminal C and the plan was to rename Terminal E into Terminal D down the road. They may finally be doing that.

26 Post contains images airbazar : Looks like my guess was half right. From that same article, it says: "At a dedication this morning of an expansion of the airport's Terminal E"
27 seamefly : BOS wanted to be considered as New York's 4th Airport! :p
