Questions About PDX Operations

Posted (3 years 8 months 1 week 6 hours ago) and read 3864 times:

During my recent departures out of my home airport, PDX, I have same questions about gate usage and other operations:

C Concourse:
1. Gate C1 is currently blocked off due to the large baggage sorting tent that is in place. That tent will be leaving as soon as the new system is fully operational, right?
2. Alaska uses C2-C7, correct?
3. JetBlue now uses C6, now that their operations are no longer handled by United (B6 used E3 for a while). What is the door located in B6's gate area marked C6a used for?
4. I know that American uses C9 for its operations, and I noticed that C11 seemed to have their logo as well. Does AA lease both these gates? Because I've never seen anyone use C11 before...
5. C8 and C10 appear to be used by Frontier. When I was last at PDX (in late March) C10's board had an F9 departure listed, while C8 just had a bunch of asterisks...  
6. Does anyone use C12?
7. Southwest uses C13-C16, as those gates are all configured with the weirdo WN boarding queues and analogue-style departure boards.
8. US Airways uses both C17 and C19, right?
9. Lastly, what is the story on the very last gates, C18 and C20-C23? These gates appear to sit dormant throughout most, if not all of the day. Does anyone use them at all? C23 (and C22?) have one blank CRT monitor at their podiums. There is no departure board or any visible equipment whatsoever at these gates. However, there seems to be 1 or 2 select AS flights (in the evening/late night) that arrive at C23. What is the purpose of that? Are C18 and C20-C23 used for arrivals only?    

D Concourse:
1. Continental uses D1; what's happening to that when they merge with UA?
2. Does DL use all of D2-D7?
3. Does anyone use D8 or D9?
4. International Gates D10-D15 - I know DL uses 1 or 2 of these gates for the NRT and AMS flight. And doesn't Hawaiian utilize the international gates? I would assume that D10-D15 are designed to handle widebodies, like HA's 763s...

E Concourse:
1. E1-E5 are all UA mainline gates, but does UA use E5? I don't think I've ever seen an aircraft at that gate.
2. E6 and E7 are for United Express/SkyWest/Air Canada Jazz. Now, is E7 only for departures? Because I recently saw a "Do Not Enter" sign at the bottom of the E7 stairs. But I know that the cramped ground-level gate E6 is used for both arrivals and departures.
3. What's the story on AC mainline?

Whew... I know that's a lot of questions, but any corrections or answers would be most appreciated!   Thanks in advance.

1. Gate C1 is currently blocked off due to the large baggage sorting tent that is in place. That tent will be leaving as soon as the new system is fully operational, right?

That is correct. Once the baggage system is fully functional again, the tent will be gone and C1 will be usable again, though admittedly it will need some chairs in the departure lounge since as I recall those were taken somewhere else.

Quoting AlnessW (Thread starter):
2. Alaska uses C2-C7, correct?

They use C2 (on some occasions, rarely), C3, C4, C5, C7 as well as B1 and B2 during peak times and in the morning. They also use either C20 or C23 for arrivals during the later hours.

Quoting AlnessW (Thread starter):
3. JetBlue now uses C6, now that their operations are no longer handled by United (B6 used E3 for a while). What is the door located in B6's gate area marked C6a used for?

C6a is as I recall an elevator down to the tarmac. I may be wrong though as it was a long time ago when I heard about it last.

Quoting AlnessW (Thread starter):
4. I know that American uses C9 for its operations, and I noticed that C11 seemed to have their logo as well. Does AA lease both these gates? Because I've never seen anyone use C11 before..

I have seen AA use both, it was a while ago admittedly, but I believe it was used back when they had Eagle flights to there (I may be wrong). As I seem to recall, for the longest time C11 was covered with baggage carts for AA during the winter and during the summer it saw occasional use.

Quoting AlnessW (Thread starter):
5. C8 and C10 appear to be used by Frontier. When I was last at PDX (in late March) C10's board had an F9 departure listed, while C8 just had a bunch of asterisks...

F9 almost exclusively uses C10. C8, to my knowledge is not being used at all. It used to be that C10 was used for something else and F9 used C8 but I now believe that has changed.

Quoting AlnessW (Thread starter):
6. Does anyone use C12?

C12 is used as a WN arrival gate during the late rush.

Quoting AlnessW (Thread starter):
7. Southwest uses C13-C16, as those gates are all configured with the weirdo WN boarding queues and analogue-style departure boards.

WN also uses C18, C20 and C22 for evening arrivals.

Quoting AlnessW (Thread starter):
8. US Airways uses both C17 and C19, right?

Correct. Though as I recall C19 is only used for the morning departure and late night arrival. The remainder of the flights are handled out of C17.

Quoting AlnessW (Thread starter):
9. Lastly, what is the story on the very last gates, C18 and C20-C23? These gates appear to sit dormant throughout most, if not all of the day. Does anyone use them at all? C23 (and C22?) have one blank CRT monitor at their podiums. There is no departure board or any visible equipment whatsoever at these gates. However, there seems to be 1 or 2 select AS flights (in the evening/late night) that arrive at C23. What is the purpose of that? Are C18 and C20-C23 used for arrivals only?

You are correct there as well. They are used for late night RON aircraft. They are used by WN and AS. They do not serve departing passengers and the gates are there so that when the day comes that PDX needs more gates for a new entrant, they already are available to lease.

Quoting AlnessW (Thread starter):
1. E1-E5 are all UA mainline gates, but does UA use E5? I don't think I've ever seen an aircraft at that gate.

E5 is used for a late night arrival/early morning departure and that is about it. It also handles any arriving aircraft if SFO weather kicks in and delays the SFO flight to the point where it blocks the gate for another aircraft.

Quoting AlnessW (Thread starter):
2. E6 and E7 are for United Express/SkyWest/Air Canada Jazz. Now, is E7 only for departures? Because I recently saw a "Do Not Enter" sign at the bottom of the E7 stairs. But I know that the cramped ground-level gate E6 is used for both arrivals and departures.

The way E6/E7 work is that E7 is the technical hallway for arriving passengers so as a result anyone who walks down that side would be attempting to get onto the tarmac and would be unable to. That sign is more there to stop people from having to make two trips.

That is about all I can give you. The rest are outside my PDX knowledge since I rarely ever have a reason to be in the D concourse, though A,B and C are second homes.

That sounds right, as (If I remember correctly) C6a does appear to be an elevator. Why would they need that? Also, did anyone use C6 before JetBlue moved there?

Perhaps AA used C11 back when they had flights to ORD? Were those Eagle or mainline flights?

So if C18 and C20-C23 aren't for departures, then AS and WN would tow the RONs to a departure gate the next morning, right? Why not just have the late-night arrivals go to a departure gate for the next day (like Hawaiian does)? Maybe one of those end gates will be leased when, say... Virgin America decides to fly here!

Wait... if E7 doesn't access the tarmac then what is the glass hallway (which I thought was E7's stairs) down on the tarmac by E6 for? Also UA was indeed boarding a flight out of E7 when I arrived at E6, which doesn't suggest the system you mention.

Thank you very much for sharing all of your PDX knowledge!   Exactly what I was looking for.

B3 has been used in the past, I know I've boarded some QX CR7s these but nowadays it sits empty. Perhaps with the increased usage this summer it might see a daily flight. It is also worth mentioning there is technically a B3A and a B3B though the designation is outside and just determines how the jet bridge lines up.

That very well may have been. I don't recall, it's been so long since I've seen it used.

The way C18 and C20-C23 work is that all the normal gates have already been filled up for the night and the aircraft there are getting their look around. What then happens is additional aircraft are arriving and thus need a gate so they use those gates at the end of the C concourse. The aircraft remain there overnight and then after the six/seven AM push after more of the normal gates have opened up from the early flights, those aircraft are towed over and used in the 8/9 push.

My understanding is that E7 is like C2H and C2N at SEA, simply arrival gates and that all departures are truly out of the sub-basement they like to refer to as a gate. Now while E7 is "technically a gate" and the signage is all there for it, I believe it does refer to the arrival hallway that they have down there. It has been some time since I have been over on E. I will check for you when I am back at PDX next week.

Does anyone use D8 or D9?

Also, DL does use D9 quite often for operations and it often is used for MSP flights

Quoting AlnessW (Thread starter):

Well, D2 is out of service and the entire stand is blocked with debris so they don't use D2 but other than that yes.

Quoting AlnessW (Thread starter):

Well one of two things can happen, either CO consolidates with UA and uses E5 which is left open quite often during the day. Or the other option is that CO stays in D1 (and they also use D13 when they have both an EWR and an IAH aircraft on the ground) since D1 is literally right next to the E terminal (well separated by the small foyer after security and the display case) and uses E5 instead of D13.

HA utilizes D4 and D10 for their flights. D4 after that sits empty for the rest of the day. D10 is sometimes used by Delta. Since there are no other carriers with non pre-cleared international service, DL is the only one using them.

And how do internationally arriving pax get downstairs to immigration? I've seen the virtual tours on the Airport Wayfinder website, but those don't show the journey from aircraft to immigration; the clip simply starts at the staircase to immigration (which is located in that box in the corner between gates D10 and D12, right?). I've always wanted to go down our international facility...

I'm not sure as I can't recall a time where I ever had to get on a bus and connect over to D or E as my experiences in there have been limited. When I travel to/from PDX, its either on AS/QX or WN.

Like most international gates, the gates lead to a sterile hallway. The hallway leads to a set of stairs that leads to a bus stop (I believe it somehow ends up between D8 and D10. You make your way onto the bus to proceed to the main terminal. While I've never been through customs as PDX, this is what I've observed from the concourse connector.

That was my guess too, though most of those sterile hallways are hidden. Yes, pax whose final destination is PDX ride the International Arrivals bus (after clearing passport control, customs, and claiming their bags) to a doorway on the tarmac between gates E1 and E2 which takes them into the International Arrivals area. But pax who have a connection to make take a different route. After dropping off checked bags at the recheck carousel, they take a staircase up to the departures level. This leaves them inside of a mysterious white box nearby gate D9 with a doorway to the separate security checkpoint.

I have never noticed this. I was under the impression that all passengers went through the international arrivals area and then had to reclear security with everyone else. Interesting to know.

I'll have to look at it when I'm in PDX on T/Th/Sa next week. I've never noticed a staircase between D7 and D9 but then again, around there is where I'm being asked by all the Delta reps if I want to sign up for a credit card so I usually am walking on the other side of the concourse (when I'm over there, which is the one time a month I deicde I want Wendy's instead of something from the bistro or Sandoval's)

You can't actually see the staircase - it's inside of that white box I mentioned earlier. You'll see what I'm talking about when you're there. Pax come upstairs from customs via the hidden staircase into the white box, which has one set of doors that lead to security. Again, this will all make sense when you are there.

Also - If I remember correctly the hidden staircase is actually between gates D9 and D11, contrary to what the PDX map suggests. You will also see the separate security screening checkpoint when you're there, though I've never personally seen it in use as I am usually only at PDX in the early morning when there are no international flights departing or arriving.

All in all, the staircases, escalators, and basically all of the entrances/exits from the international area are completely out of sight.

Correct, it is all between D9 and D11. I never even noticed it was there. Its quite an elaborate set-up and it literally is a white box.

Also, as I was walking around, I noticed D8 has had all of its signage and podiums and everything removed. It is now just a carpeted floor. The C1 podium has had the L and S removed of Alaska, presumably to repair other gates as they lost the signage. Though I'm not sure why...

Oddly enough, I was looking at C18 and C20 today and I noticed something, they do not have the A320 lead-in mark like the rest of the outer C pier do, but rather they have a 757 mark.

Oh and, its currently raining leading to a bit of a line for departure on 28R since 28L is being refinished and 3/22 is only suitable for the short QX hops to SEA or EUG as well as the GA planes and FedEx Feeder operations.

It is indeed! I too, had not noticed it before until one day when I was departing out of the E gates last summer and decided to wander down the D concourse to check out the international area - a place I had never seen before until then.

Interesting, perhaps DL didn't need D8 anymore? If I remember correctly D2 looks the same way - no chairs and just a carpeted floor. And that is a good guess about why C1 signage would be missing.

A slight update, the baggage sorting tent is closed so I am unsure of when it is coming down and if C1 will reopen.

Also, AA is back to using C11 for some MD80 flights (there was one there today).

And taxiways K and E and maybe part of A at the end of 3/21 are currently out of use due to a disabled GA aircraft that just landed and was greeted by airport operations. As a result, departures are having to hold on either Tango just before E2 or on Echo just before E2 if there is an arriving aircraft coming down T. Likewise, arrivals are having to hold just off the 10R end of 10R/28L if there is an aircraft on T. Looks like the engine quit after he landed which I'm judging was a ways down the runway since he ate up all of 3/21. Both runways are still in use and thankfully it is a slow time here at PDX anyhow otherwise I can see some AS, QX and WN planes being a little backed up.

Though it looks like they just now started to bring a tug out so it looks like that aircraft should be out of the way soon and return operations to normal.
