The new IND terminal will be 100ft wide in each concourse. Therefore, the new IND concourses wont be much wider I don't think.
The concourses will be 110 feet wide. I believe the old terminal is in the area of 70 feet wide. It will be significantly wider. The end of the current C concourse is approximately 110 feet wide at its widest point but the entire end area will have less square footage because of its seven sided design than the end of a concourse in the new facility. Also about 1/4th of the space at the end of the current C concourse is eaten up by retail space which isn't listed in the plan for the new terminal. The end of the C concourse has 6 gates while the end of the new concourse will have only 5. It will have one less gate and likely twice the space. The A concourse that NW
uses is narrow. It is approximately 70 feet wide (+/- 5 feet). The end of it has 8 gates (4 jet bridges). NW
parks two jets at one bridge. That place can be packed. But in the new terminal they'd have 50% more room and likley wouldn't be parking 2 jets at one bridge.
Edit: I went and looked at the stats page and the concourse width doesn't match the executive summary which lists it as 110 feet. Also I was told by a member of the airport authority that the terminal would have 3 international gates and not two. So something is off but not sure which numbers.
