Alaska has had some issue's in regards to gate use at SFO
, thats for sure. But the evenings are made easier by arriving some flights at the international terminal. AS
also will use gates 21,23,25 when needed and available.
EIPremier: Gates 21,23 are actually owned by DL
leases the gates and has full use of 23 at all times and gate 21 from 0700-2200. With DL
being able to use the old international gates for RON A/C, AC
frequently uses gate 21 as well over night. AS
has been unable to pick up more gate space to this point. AS
big mistake in my opinion was not picking up HP
's old ticket counter space. There have been some issue's with long lines during the morning rush of flights after the added SAN
flights. And thats without the SAN
load picking up as of yet. As said above F9
now has gates 41,43
FlyboyOZ: As above AC
actually leases 2 gates. They also have no problems using Alaska gates when they are open. AS
/AC frequently use each others gates.
will learn from this winter schedule and not make the mistake again. In the 7 years I was in SFO
, they frequently made changes to schedules and improved them. By the way, how has AS
made a mistake entering the SFO
market, we have been doing this route since the early 90's, or do you mean the evening flight in which its load-factor is rising weekly?
Another unseen issue with Alaska's SFO
gates is the CR7 poorly fits into gate 24 for some reason. Last I checked the issue couldn't be resolved by the jetway manufacturer.
