Here is some information regarding the "GIDS" or plasma screens in the gate areas for Delta at DFW
Prior to 9/11, DFW
was scheduled for the GIDS to be installed. From what was told from ATL
, there were 20 of the screens in storage waiting for electronic hardware for DFW
to come in, the screens were stolen. After that, the project was put on hold.
Then after 9/11, the project for DFW
(very expensive) was put on hold for 18 months. Then just a couple of months ago, DFW
GIDS were financed back into the budget since DFW
had made the corner in profitability...the GIDS will be installed in Feb 04. Gates 10-11-12-14-15-16-17-18, & 36-38 (intl gates).
