Where is AS going to be in the airport after all of the construction? Same spot?

This has a bit more substance to it though, being much closer to the action date. Too bad we can't merge threads, however.

Quoting HPRamper (Reply 4):

I'm more interested in the $1 million + savings for opening a flight attendant base in travel costs for the airline. Love those fun little facts.

Im still wondering (1) where AS is going to end up gate-wise (presumably stayinh put or close to it) and then (2) where the base will be physically located.

I believe they are staying in Terminal 1 W. United is vacating their gates once they move into the expanded Terminal 2 this summer. This should give AS plenty of room to grow.

Staying put for now. New base won't be anything other than a small supervisor's office and small crew lounge in the terminal. There won't be any training facilities built if that's what you're thinking. The only base with those kinds of things is SEA.

Does that mean UA will construct a new RCC in T2?

Yes. There will be a new United Club in T2. From what I have read, it will be the new design.

Actually, the new RCC is being finished up in the new T2W expansion (The Green Build) and should be opening in just a few months (probably by April) when UA moves all their (combined) mainland ops there.

The fate of the present 5 gates that UA uses in T1W has not been announced but has certainly been discussed a lot in the last year. Most of us hope to see AS grab at least a couple of these gates for continued expansion at SAN. In any case, it's probably safe to say that the 5 gates will be put to good use pretty soon after UA is gone!

There's also some talk about the nice, soon-to-be-empty RCC in T1W and what might become of it... a lovely new AS Board Room perhaps?

AS is not only adding flights via new routes -- such as BOS and LIH -- but they are adding frequencies and capacity to existing routes such as the daily-doubles that we'll be seeing soon to OGG and SJD!
