THANK YOU kngkyle!!! So the diagram on Curbed was wrong because that diagram shows the concourse wrapping around the HVAC buildings with the gates facing south and east. From the above rendering and photo, the concourse runs only east/west and the gates face south, tucked in pretty efficiently. The ...Jump to post
Don't need to see construction drawings, but some design drawings would be nice. Some basic renderings in plan view and/or 3D. I am sure they exist. Also, even if the project is privately financed, it is still on public property. I have worked on such projects in the city and you better believe the ...Jump to post
There will be a walkway from the Current L concourse North to the HVAC building, where the walkway will turn east. The gates will require the demolition of a building and the relocation of outdoor parking for snow removal equipment. Simply put the gates will between the HVAC building and the Alpha ...Jump to post
There has been much discussion on this forum of the ME3 vs. EU carriers but someone should thank Mr. Hogan for the enormous amount of cash that EY pumped into the EU through Alitalia and Air BerlinJump to post

So what happens now, does anyone know. Could we see a shutdown soon? If so, do you think AA or UA would add an additional seasonal flight from ORD. How about MIA, JFK, LAX and BOS? AA and DL have some real opportunities to fill a void... but do they have the slack in their fleet?Jump to post
In related news, UA has already settled with the Dr. Looks like everyone wants to put this behind them and quick.

I only know mostly about ORD, and I can see it happening.. there is a 9 gate T5 (international) expansion going on, as well as a T3 AA 5 gate expansion. There were talks of a T2 redevelopment, and adding more concourses, but more details on that by the end of the year I think. I thought the T5 expa...Jump to post

For those of you that think that is a one off incident that will be forgotten as soon as the next news cycle hits are wrong IMHO.

It's not that complicated. I believe that generally, people have a very large capacity to recognize the difference between fair and unfair.

I am a United fan but this is disgusting. This is a failure on so many levels and the buck stops at UA.

Again, I don't think we have really seen an alternate succeed like FLL has since deregulation in the U.S. What MDW, it came back from the dead and has been maxed out for years?

Virgin Hotels should probably be known as Virgin Hotel, since it's a chain of one property.
Another way to look at this is the 787 has reduced the amount of double connections, especially over the Pacific, hard to argue. Someone that was flying AUS-SIN might have flown AUS-SFO-NRT-SIN. But now they can do AUS-SFO-SIN. That has eliminated the connection in one of the hubs, NRT, thereby cont...Jump to post
With the new runway construction at ORD, CPE is projected to rise significantly. I'd like to see the 2017 figure and the projections for 2018 through 2020. Shouldn't the 2015 CPE already include the three new runways? 9L/27R, 10C/28C & 10R/28L were already complete or nearing completion at that...Jump to post
I asked this same question the other day in this older thread.
Construction permits were reportedly issued in January yet still nothing, not even a basic plan.
This makes sense with their planes sitting down there already. Surprised that no US airlines did this earlier.Jump to post
Yes, but not T3L, according to this article, construction permits have already been issued.

Chicago Dept. of Aviation has been quiet on the plans for the terminal core. Has anyone heard anything? We could use an update... T5 Expansion - Adding 9 gates. Announced 3 months ago. T5 A380 Gate. T3 - Concourse L Expansion - AA adding 5 Gates - Announced 11 months ago. Have we seen any specific a...Jump to post
Since ORD finished their runway reconfiguration it is not bad anymore congeston-wise... The congestion has moved from the runways to the gates. There is a severe gate shortage that forces planes to sit on taxiways and in penalty boxes waiting for an open gate, delays of 30-45 minutes is not uncommo...Jump to post
With AV announcing BOS-BOG today, it means that ORD may be more of a possibility now. Wow, if they can make BOS work, I would think ORD should be able to work. Chicago's metro area is double that of Boston and ORD has a huge amount of connection opportunities on UA. Chicago is only 100 miles further.Jump to post
I love the 787 and I believe it meets a lot of the demands for the existing/former 763, A332/3, 772 markets and also created a new market... but it doesn't it leaves a large market unfilled... most of the US-EU 763 market... plus the 757 transatlantic market... looking forward to seeing what Boeing ...Jump to post
Thanks for compiling this. Its good to see AA stepping it up in Chicago with the 787. Makes me want to switch to AA from UA! Why can't UA show ORD any 787Love? Great post.

I completely missed the 787-10 rollout :( This news warranted it's own thread! Congrats to Boeing, looks great. Although I prefer the look of the A350 when on the ground.

Chicago has very few South American residents for a city its size. Other than a fair number of Ecuadorians, there isnt much up there that will justify service based on community.
