Re: Why doesnt UA level Terminal C EWR?

Even the new renderings at new Terminal 1 throw a nod to EWRs 70s headhouse look...which is cool.

Anyone know how all the jetways became poop brown? that is also a unique EWR thing

Re: Why doesnt UA level Terminal C EWR?

You are comparing it next to two dogs. Out of the 3 terminals at EWR, it is the best.

It is not a modern, 2020 terminal for a crown jewel hub.

Just arriving... Mix of old and new. Narrow walkways between concourses. Up and down. Low ceilings. Pillars and escalators with no clear line of sight anywhere.

If AA wasnt so PHL centric, anti JFK, that was a route authority that they begged for for 20 years.

Lots of competition, but lots of demand.

PHL has no competition...but even with its connecting banks...no demand!
