The new city is SLC
guys. Some of the others might make it ont Alaska's routemap as well, but SLC
is, as far as I know, already in the bag.
They leased Delta's former gates on the B concourse. Sunvalley, I'm curious, which ones did they take? B2
? Or the others? All the gates on the west side of the B concourse are currently vacant....that's gates B2
, B10, and B12. At least that's according to SLC
airport's main website. Alaska won't need all these spare gates so which do they plan to use?
I really hope it's MD
-80 service that SLC
gets, though they might bring in a 737 instead. I'd love to see a T-tail at the B concourse again. If you remember that's where Delta used to park 727s that weren't going anywhere for a few hours. B2
especially. There was always a 727 parked at B2
, though I never saw it taking passengers. Usually an N400 series aircraft, among the first to be scrapped. Sadly.
Anyway, it's SLC
. That's pretty much a given at this point. The only question is when service begins, and which gates they leased on B. They'll be operating a codeshare with Delta as well.
