The Star Alliance terminal is not only for UA. Lufthasa will use it too, as well as Lauda, Mexicana, Varig, and Air Canada. ALM, which UA codeshares with, will also probably use it. And bmi will also find use for it, as I'm sure they will be in MIA by 2005, along with any other Star Alliance partners, such as SAS, that may decide to fly to MIA. I could easily see UA opening new routes from MIA to JFK, DFW, and BOS by 2005, maybe even LHR and other major Latin American destinations (BOG and LIM). And I am sure they will lease out gate space to whoever wants it, such as LTU or Air France (AF will be flying A380s to MIA and the new UA terminal will be the only one able to truly handle the capacity for boarding the A380). A lot can happen in four years, but the terminal is well under construction, although I have read in some articles form local Miami media that it will be 20 gates, though the scale model of the terminal located at UA's Miami offices shows 28.
