DL @ DTW

Sun Oct 03, 2004 8:46 am

Has there been any talk of DL moving their ops at DTW from the Smith Terminal over to the McNamara terminal so that they'll be better situated to work with their new Skyteam partners?

Didn't DL have issues with moving? I thought NW wanted to give them RJ gates at Concourse C and a mainline gate a Concourse A - but DL didn't want their gates separated. Can anyone confirm this?

Waiting for the B extension to open, as there is currently no room at the inn.

SO -- Continental, KLM, Delta, NWA will all fly out of McNamara then. And of course, Lufthansa and British Airways do. So the old terminal now is just Spirit, US Air and United?

Do LH , RJ and BA have dedicated gates, or just roll up to a NW gate?

BA, LH and RJ were at the Berry Terminal.

The Berry is now used by charters, Champion, and ATA.

The Smith Terminal:

AA
UA
DL for now
US
Indepence
America West
Southwest
Air Canada
American Eagle

USA 3000 Berry Terminal

Commuter Airlines


ASA (Delta)
Smith Terminal
Comair Smith Terminal

LH & BA and RJ don't have dedicated gates. They just use one of the international gates from NW. They use the same gate(s) every day for their flight. During other times of the day, NW uses them for their flights.

The Smith terminal will still have:
American
United
USAirways
Spirit
Southwest
Indy Air
America West

Yes, NW operates a daily DTW-LGW and has for close to a decade now.

If LH,BA,and RJ use the same gate everyday, it sure sounds like a dedicated gate to me. granted NW also uses the gates the rest of the time.

If you look at the gates BA & LH use, you will notice that their logos are etched into the glass behinf the podium.

BA handles RJ n Detroit.

This is a dedicated gate.

I guess we have different meanings of the more dedicated.
We both mean the same thing, but I mean since it is technically NW's gate that they lease to the other airlines.
