It's obviously in Britain, and that's NWA, so Gatwick?

Not so fast... Look at the van in the left bottom corner... AA They dont fly to LGW, do they?
Doors open, right hand side, next stop is Springfield.

I don't think it is anywhere in the UK.

Looking at the vehicle above the right wing winglet, it appears to be driving on the right hand side of the carriageway.

Nope, HSBC is on the sides of the bridges at LGW. Plus on the extreme right of the pic there looks like an aircraft parked off stand. I'll stick with FRA.  Smile

I don't think it's AMS, I've been there and it looked... different. So where else does NWA fly to in Europe?
And I don't know the answer (at least not yet), I was hoping that you'd tell me.

It looks like the gate at the left hand end of T2, thinks its gate E2 - also by the tail what looks like a LH Airbus of some sort, but it is very misty.

That's a KLM codeshare....along with most other destinations on that page:

Yeah, although the site says that it also says - Together with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and KLMuk , Northwest Airlines is proud to serve destinations in Ireland and the United Kingdom.

They do - but code share on KL flights ex AMS.

But I'm in total agreement with Jacobin - I think NW have the best c/s on the A330.

This photo was taken by me in July 2005. The FRA observation deck is behind the LH Star Alliance 747 and you can clearly see that there are/were indeed RBS advts in FRA.

As you can see from this view of Google earth, it is FRA. You can see the glass encasing of the building, the two jet bridges and the buildings to the right.

VSFLYER is correct, it is T2 at FRA. Not sure of the gate number, but I departed from this same gate several years ago on a Gulf Air A340 to Bahrain.

I believe this is one of the A380 compatible gates at FRA, or the one just to the right in the photo...

It is 100% for sure FRA T2, I drive that internal roadway 2 or 3 timnes a week.

That gate BTW was used for the A380 test earlier this year and I drove by but Fraport security did not let anybody stop.

as some a.netters posted before:
100% sure it´s T2 concourse E in FRA....
Take a look at FRAports website. You can see a picture, the A380 was parked, that´s the exact wanted gate:
http://www.fraport.com/cms/a380/rubrik/7/7685.a380_microsite.htm
#14 in the "Picture Gallery" on this website shows this picture:



This topic reminds me that I´m leaving from T2 tomorrow at this time

It is Gate E9 at Terminal 2 at Frankfurt Airport FRA

How all of you mentioned it was used for the promotion of A380. Nowadays they are working on gate E2 to prepare it for the 380. Gate E4/E5 is already contructed to handle the A380. Another construction is situated between C and D concourse (D10-D13 and C7-C13). They destroyed the complete building to build up a new concourse  Big grin

Yup, anyone who said FRA is right. I also departed from this gate on A332 to BEY about 1 1/2- 2 years ago. By the way, what flights do AA take to FRA?

are you sure that you departed from this gate to BEY, because LH or ME are flying from T1 and I don't know any other airline which serve BEY from FRA...
