Also to add, Terminal 1 and Terminal 3 will be apart of the Inline system which T5
is already integrated into.
With the exception of Delta, ALL
X-ray machines in T1 and T3
will be moved out and the TSA
for baggage screening will take place under the Terminals. This will give massive room to T3
. In T5
recheck no longer exist. When bags come in on International flights and need to be screened for connecting flights, the passengers hand over their luggage to AA
and they will send them up the belt to the TSA
with new faster X-ray machines. Passengers no longer need to wait in long lines to recheck luggage. Departures for T5
will take longer as they can't seem to make up their mind if they want to make Departures Inline or put new X-ray machines there(they would have to re-enforce the floor). Anyone who has flown out of T5
knows we had to check those bags by hand.
Once these changes to T3
and T1 are made things should really move along faster and more space will be added to the Terminals. Now T3
will be up hopefully by January. T1 is a year behind or so, so that might take awhile. They are building new belts for this and all.
