Re: What's Going On In Nashville? - 2018

Considering BNA is a mere spoke for AA now, there really isn't a need for any more gates than they have now (7 plus over overflow that is shared with WN). As far as the gating of the BA flight, I'm now thinking maybe the reason it will board at B11 as opposed to C11 is because of the "merton's...

Re: What's Going On In Nashville? - 2018

We have to remember that AA just gave up C-13/14 to SWA. This decision very well may be due to AA gate constraints at that time of day as the RONs are beginning to roll in at that point. In addition to taxi from the current IAB to B-11 is much easier from a logistical stand point. The flight is for...

Re: What's Going On In Nashville? - 2018

I’m not complaining because I much prefer WN to AA, but why did the two gates in C go to WN? Was it AA or MNAA that made the decision? It’s been rumored that WN is ready to take BNA to the next step, and increase service overall. That obviously includes new destinations. They wanted the capacity Ho...

I guess we'll find out soon enough. If employees at the airport are seeing indications that the flight will depart off B, it most likely will. The BNA website shows them on B. Just because there is an Admirals Club on C, it doesn't mean they have to depart from C. It's easily a <10 minute walk from...

The end of B doesn’t have room at all. C11 has had the 787 marking since the flight was announced. B10 is the only empty gate. Most likely going to be used by G4. Plus the Admirals Club is a few feet from C11
