Not at the present time. But that was as of the time I write this. ;-I

Sure. It was to be a single, long North-South terminal building running parallel with North-South runways and roadways. Both underground train and overhead internal moving walkways to be included. Construction was supposed to be done South to North. As construction progressed, AA was supposed to leave Terminal 3E to occupy south end of new terminal and residents of 2W were to move into 3E. Once new building completed, AA and AE were to vacate 2E and everything was to be on west side.
Construction on east side mirror image terminal was to then commence moving North to South at a slower pace than west side due to less free space to move tenants to/from. Anyway, as the building from the north progressed, tenants to move in were to be "everybody else" (non-AA/DL), then Delta.
Interesting side note is that the financing terms for the west terminal included the requirements that the east terminal be built immediately upon completion of west terminal and that Delta could not utilize any ex-AA facilities on the east side. West terminal construction costs were finalized at over 1.3 Billion dollars when the project was cancelled in early 1990's airline recession.
