Certain airlines/airports will of course use the 3rd to segregate pax into a "premium boarding area" where they need not mingle with the rif-raf in Y.
|Quoting Flexo (Reply 11):|
I think that is exactly what happened in the scenario pictured by the OP. The first jetbridge seems to serve that "premium passenger" purpose.
|Quoting Mestrugo (Reply 2):|
Let's just hope that the airport authorities have at least the common sense to make a line for every jetway instead of making a HUGE line and then sort people depending on their seat.

Do the A380s have to have specialized baggage claim areas built?
|Quoting Speedbird2263 (Reply 4):|
I find the first schematic interesting, Im not quite sure if that set up would be more efficient than the current M1,M2 & U2 arrangement
|Quoting Stealth777 (Thread starter):|
p.s. Let me know what you think of the picture. Thanks.

Do the A380s have to have specialized baggage claim areas built? I cannot imagine standing in a "normal" claim in LAX or JFK, etc. with all of those people.
|Quoting HSV (Reply 18):|
On arrival into Sydney, bags for Suites, Business and priority passengers came out on carousel 4 while the bags for everyone else came out on carousel 3. So basically, nothing special has been built for the A380... they just use 2 carousels instead.

Now that's a boring solution, isn't it?
|Quoting Ikramerica (Reply 12):|
The premium jetway would be attached to this floor directly, with the other two jetways attached to the main "rif raf" floor.
|Quoting Gigneil (Reply 24):|
That is really only supportable if all premium seats are located on the second floor.
|Quoting BA0284 (Reply 25):|
anyway, my main question is which gates on the A side at SFO will have the triple airbridge? Does anyone know yet?
