There was a meeting today regarding terminal E. There will be a consolidation of the checkpoints. There are currently 2 checkpoints in section A (DL, NW
) that will be combined to 1. There are 2 checkpoints in section B (DL, FL
) that will be combined to 1. There is 1 checkpoint in section C that will be increased. The remodeled checkpoints will have more queueing. This is the best solution for now.
, and YX
were supposed to move in to section C. I found out today that YX
is not moving since they sublease their gate from US. As mentioned, US an UA
are not moving.
There are some other improvements to E. The glass walls at the gates that led to the custom area will be taken down to increase the gate area.
There will be some baggage system upgrades, new bag rooms, etc.
The airport's long term plan calls for baggage claim areas to be moved off the upper level with the ticket counters and new space created on the lower level (like most airports).
There will also be new FIDS monitors installed on both the land and air side. There are some on the air side now. There are 10 flat screen TV
's in each bank of FIDS that cost over $100,000.
There will also be shared self-serve check-in kiosks that all of the airlines will use.
Overall, a lot of little things to improve the customer experience.
