Have you heard if/when Air Canada will be moving to the USAirways gate area? Supposedly, US will be handling most of the ground functions for AC sometime in the future, at most of the stations AC is contracting out

The last few times I have gone through security at D it has been a real nightmare. It recalls the days right after 9/11. If Southwest adds flights there, security at D will be at a standstill.

I don't really get it either, but that's what looks like is going to happen. In reality Delta is scaling back operations in PHL and will only have 12-14 mainline flts and 6 or so RJ's. However like you mentioned there is virtually no room in A-west. When all the US transatlantic flts come in there are basically no gates and if DL planes are taking up a gate or two, the last thing that we want to start seing again is busing from the aircraft to the terminal for international flts.
|Quoting TWAAF9 (Reply 15):|
Last I heard from F9 management at PHL was that DL was moving to A-EAST and that F9 was looking at moving to Terminal E (possible gate/counter share with YX--however it looks pretty un-workable, though). Barring moving to Terminal E, F9 has the option of space in D. Any moves for F9 would be after New Year's.

It'd be interesting to find out the reason for all this shuffling. I can't find any public documentation anywhere.
|Quoting USflt1778 (Reply 20):|
AF, BA and LH are moving to A-West during first quarter of 2006. AF will have their own counter.
|Quoting USAFHummer (Reply 19):|
*shudder*...I think I could tolerate F9 being in D cause its still connected to the food court and mall, but F9 in the isolation of E? I hope not!
|Quoting UALPHLCS (Reply 6):|
I haven't heard anything about AC changing to US for ground handling. UA has ground handled AC in just about every city in the US were they overlap. The only exception I can think of off the top of my head is BOS.
|Quoting N917ME (Reply 33):|
DL will only have 3 gates in A east. Whether they handle AF or not is still in up in the air. AF has placed RFP's out to other handlers. AF is NOT happy with DL and DGS handling them in PHL.
|Quoting PVD757 (Reply 34):|
After DL moves from E to A, who else will be in E with WN and how many E gates will WN NOT have in E
|Quoting Cgnnrw (Reply 35):|
Why is AF uhappy with DL? Seems a bit strange for two alliance partners not to get on well with each other....or does it have to do with the DL employees in PHL?
|Quoting Usairways85 (Reply 36):|
WN E8, E9, E10, E12 (I don't think these are the correct numbers for WN, i thought they have something like E10abc, someone know?)
