Midway #1 And Southwest At MDW In The 80s?

Tue Nov 23, 2004 11:07 pm

When Midway #1 was still around did they have sole use of the B concourse or did they share with another airline. Also did Southwest have all of A or what other airlines were in that one?

Midway #1 actually started off on Concourse A back in 1979, using some former United gates. Eventually they grew to use the entire concourse, and in the early 1980s expanded onto Concourse B as well. In the mid-1980s they added the odd second-level jetways that required passengers to climb a small flight of stairs.

Southwest used two or three gates on Concourse A before Midway shut down in 1991. They didn't take over all of Concourse A until after the shutdown, and that was only after some competition with Northwest over who would get to use the gates.
