CO And SW Battle For New Satellite Term At Orlando

Sat Jul 31, 1999 12:30 pm

From the Orlando Sentinel:

A quick synopsis: SW and CO are at a bidding war for the new satellite at MCO. A satellite at MCO contains 30 gates, so that will be a quantum leap if SW gets it and a major hub if CO gets it.

So everyone, who should get the new satellite?

I was just in MCO last week and I noticed that tons of gates in one of the terminals (the one that NW is in) were not in use! Some of them didn't even have jetways! Not quite enough to make a hub, but definitely enough to have an impact. So why doesn't one airline (SW because they really don't need a hub, do they?) buy those gates and the other one take the new terminal?
