Underused Terminal At MCO

Mon Jul 17, 2000 10:27 pm

I was at MCO Thursday, and when I went through the Delta terminal(gates 60-99), there was very little traffic in the concourses. during the 6 hours I was in the airport, I saw 4 planes in the Delta Ex. concourse, 6 planes in the International terminal, and less than 12 planes in the Domestic terminal. Each concourse had 10 gates. somebody explain this to me please? Are there more flights in the morning? I was there periodically from 1200-1800 in the afternoon.

I was once based in MCO and I'm curious as to what time you were in the terminal? Generally, that terminal is a virtual mad house. I think we're still the largest carrier at MCO and we have load factors well into the high 90%'s.

When were you based there, Delta737? Like I said, I was there from 1200-1600 Thursday afternoon. Most of the planes there were the 732s of Del.EX., the 763/L1011 of Delta, and 3 747s of BA/Virgin(I must admit that Comair had a pretty large # of flights)
