I just visited the PHL homepage and it stated that the new Intl. terminal is to be completed in 2002. Will it be completed in the next two months?

I heard it was supposed to be done by Christmas, after a delay that was announced in June. I wouldn't be surprised if it was pushed back further though. From what it looks like, it certainly could be done by then. I'm heading down there next Thursday, so I'm going to take a closer look.

the latest rumor has it delayed until March, although the City is pushing US to get it done before then... So I highly doubt it will be done in 2002.
I flew out of Terminal A last week, and from the looks of things, there's a good amount of work left -- although it does seem that it's not 5 months of work....
There were reports of some problems with some contractors making fairly large mistakes as well as security concerns that have slowed construction.

yeah i've heard rumors that it has been pushed back to sometime next spring. The builders are working at a snails pace and it doesn't seem like they really care when its done. Does anyone know what the original opening date was? I want to figure out how long it has been pushed back. I am guessing 1-2 years. I fly out of Terminal C tomorrow so i'll try to take a look around.

the original projections were spring-summer 02.

i dont think that "it doesn't seem like they really care when its done."

more that they're working for a bankrupt carrier and several contractors have been fired. there were also severe errors in the architectural drawings.

Well from what i heard about the hammerhead, the workers took their time and often built things wrong and had to redo certain areas. Now there could be many reasons for this, but to me it just looks like there is no push to get it done. Whether its the workers just taking their time or whether its the fact that the workers aren't not being told to hurry up, i dont know.

The International terminal is supposed to open 1Q 2003. If it had opened in DEC. It would have been 22 months behind schedule. As it is it looks now like a solid 2 years. Theere have been alot of problems but one of the main delays was cause by 9-11 and the need to revamp the terminal security plan.
