I remember as a child how grand and magnificent the Eastern Terminal (A) was in Boston. There it stood, separate from all the other terminals. How proud it looked with the huge EASTERN sign in front. We could drive the car right into the terminal and park on the upper floors. The lobby was spacious and light. All 12 jetway gates were close in. And the L1011's graced the terminal with their beauty.
In college, I had a summer job with Bar harbor Airlines (CO/EA express). I loved working at the counter and on the ramp, transferring bags to all terminals on the buggy, but coming back to most elegant one.
Alas, it's apocalyptic. Both this terminal and the WTC came down about the same time, and both are the same architect.
The new terminal going up looks fancy shmancy. I really hope that it still retains a local New England flavor rather than looking like so many of the other new terminals. Does anyone have recent photos of the facility?
