Yay to AN! Yay to AN!
As for the International terminal (AN dom) expansion plans, these have been around for a while. There is nothing stopping AN converting these structures to accommodate 744's. I have on reasonable authority they can already accomodate A340's and 777's.
The space at AN dom is quite big and it would not take much to change one half a pier into Intl ops. Great for star Xfer pax. And closer to the city. It will be the customs officers and immigration that will need to be bussed from the Intl terminal.
There is plent of room for shops and the like. And the AN checkin area is far superior to all the others, at least in SYD.
Did anyone see todays papers?
Gotta love that big 'A' - soon back with a vengence!!
Good luck to all the AN staff that may have a chance at the new airline. I wish you the greatest.
