This is great!!!  Big thumbs up That is will be opened into of year 2005 in the home of Star Alliances with United Airlines, Lauda Air, Lufthansa, Mexicana, Vraig and Air Canada too. That will be great to see with the new concourse J in the 3 more years later and I will forward to see it as for myself. And coming in the near of the future that will be have as for British Midland, SAS, and Austrian Airlines and this is will be great to come flying into MIA. Well, see ya!!!!

Mah, who is financing the construction?

Do you know, that is, who will have to make the bond payments that are financing the construction?

Just wondering, given United's financial problems at the moment. My thinking is that United hasn't had to commit any money upfront. Furthermore, correct me if I am wrong, but if it weren't for the lease commitments of the other StarAlliance carriers construction would not have begun.

Are they tearing down the old concourse J? Who was in that? Was that the one with TWA at the very end?

Also, whats the new concourse MIA built just a few years ago that holds British Airways I think?? How will that fit into the huge AA project going on at the north side of the terminal complex?

Ladevale, UA is paying for a large bulk of the $800M costs. It broke ground 16 January 2002 and was the only CIP (Capital Improvement Project) that UA did not suspend this past fall. Miami-Dade County Aviation Authority is also paying a big bulk of it.

Twaneedsnohelp, there is no old Concourse J. Concourse J is a new addition from the ground up. The current "South Concourse" is Concourse H (no Concourse I as not to confuse people with the number 1), which will be home only to SkyTeam by 2006. The current domestic-only terminal is being fitted with 8 international gates for Air France, AeroMexico, and Alitalia.

The new concourse (and very nice, I might add) is Concourse A. It's main tennant is British Airways, but it also houses Aeropostal, LanChile, Air France, TAM, Grupo Taca, Servivensa/Avensa, and a few others. It will be merged into the new oneWorld Concourse (A through E), so it is likely that you will see some carriers move out and others move in (TAM just moved in a few weeks ago).

MIA 2006:
Concourse A through E: OneWorld. American, British Airways, LanChile, TAM, and other AA partners. Iberia will probably move thier operations from F to A-E. It would be very cool if they could make thier own little "hub within a hub".

Concourse H: SkyTeam and Delta partners. Delta, Comair, Air France, AeroMexico, Alitalia, airJamaica. El Al will probably move here too, and maybe Virgin Atlantic since it will be A380 capable.

Concourse J: Star Alliance and no exceptions. Lufthansa, Air Canada, United, Mexicana, and Varig. Austrian will hopefully be back by then too. bmi, SAS, Spanair, and LOT Polish are all possiblities for MIA service.

Concourse F and G: Most of the leftovers. Northwest/KLM/Continental, USAirways/CC Air, AirTran, Pan Am, Aero Continente, LTU...the list goes on. I have a feeling that the other alliances are not going to be very welcoming when it comes to leasing other carriers gate space unless they are partnered.
