Looks like SNA, my home-away-from-home airport, is geting ready to open their new digs. SNA's Terminal C is ready to open this Monday, right before the Thanksgiving travel rush.

Report from KABC-TV Los Angeles: http://abclocal.go.com/kabc/story?se...ews/local/orange_county&id=8424868

As mentioned before, WN (SNA's largest carrier) will be the primary occupant of Terminal C. Other details:
-$500M USD project
-2,000 new parking spaces
-Gates will be numbered 15-22
-Baggage claims will be numbered 5-7
-Love them or hate them, the TSA full-body scanners will be there from day one
-Seating is the same type (Herman Miller Eames Tandem Sling) found in most of Terminals A and B

SNA's existing terminals A and B are getting a little love as well. If you're mad at UA for ditching Starbucks for their proprietary "Journeys" coffee, there are 3 new, larger post-security Starbucks locations at SNA (1 in Terminal A, 1 in B, 1 opening soon in C). La Tapenade Mediterranean Café is also opening up before security in Terminal B.

No map yet on the SNA website. As for Terminal C, it's adjacent to Terminal B and is connected via a walkway to Terminals A/B post-security.

Yes it is sort of funny how SNA acts like they have 2 (soon to be 3) seperate terminals. Everything, or all gates are accessable from any entry point within the building. I have heard that although "Opening Day" is to be the 14th, Froniter and Southwest will not actually move til the 17th due to permits. I guess we will see when it actually happens.

For those coffee drinker, the 3rd Starbucks is open. It is locataed bewtween gates 16 and 17. They open yesterday when I was through there.

SNA is what a "regional" airport should be -- convenient, clean, and efficient.

I am always impressed when flying through SNA, and I'm sure this will make it even better. I am very close to BUR but can only dream that BUR would have the facilities that SNA does.

Well after 5-years, and $543mil, new Terminal-C wing opened today.

You can check out a 4 minute video;

One slight hick-up.......
The outbound baggage sorting system failed a TSA certification test last Thursday, and as a result was not available for use. Passenger baggage is being processed in Terminal B wing for now.
