There was another thread on this but not sure where it's gone now. I used the new terminal earlier this week. It is definitely miles ahead of the previous one - very modern, very clean, very functional. And they even have a duty free shop that sells tobacco and alcohol (if that's your thing) which they didn't have before. (The reason goes back to a black market fraud case from the late 90s, early 2000s but that's a different story).

My favourite feature is the recorded sound of singing birds which sounds remarkably authentic - to the point where I looked around to make sure there wasn't a bird trapped inside the building.

Still no new business lounge but I expect (hope) that one will be coming along soon.

Thanks, I did not know about the "birds" I will know now for my next visit but I don't know when that's going to be... Last time I was there was about 6 years ago.

Great terminal. Does anyone know who will get to use it besides RO and how many gates it has?

I think all airlines will use it but definitely SkyTeam has priority to jetways. It has 15 jetways and about 40 bus gates to remote stands if I am not mistaken.

That's great news; any news of JFK-OTP returning? I wonder if RO would consider taking it back up with a DL codeshare. It's hard to make that market work; there's just not enough demand to/from the US to fill a widebody. Connections over AMS/CDG seem to take care of most of that traffic.

I was in Rome a few weeks back and was taking to two RO pilots. They said that RO is interested in aquiring some used 767's (no word on how many, I am assuming 2). Because this has come up from time to time, I don't give it much weight to this rumor.

I sure hope that JFK-OTP comes back. I think they would have better luck at filling a 767 now that RO is in SkyTeam. It can offer connecting opportunities to RO's Midle East/Asia flights or to Moldova which also has no direct to US flights, but I don't know how AF/KLM would feel about RO becoming another connecting partner as their networks overlap.

In other words, I have no clue. Unless RO can come up with new destinations from OTP that other SkyTeam members do not serve, I don't see the need for the 767's allegedly they are looking for... Hope that all made sense.
