Regardless, I would expect movement first to complete T8 before anything new for B6. But once everything is in motion, I can see everything being wrapped up by 2020.
|Quoting jfklganyc (Reply 4):|
The PA will work with those willing to spend $$ first. B6 is willing to do that, AA can not do that right now.
|Quoting Cubsrule (Reply 5):|
If AA had the funds, why could the Terminal 5 expansion and the Terminal 8 buildout not occur simultaneously?
|Quoting tharanga (Reply 10):|
Is that really enough room to manage widebodies from partners, along with B6's own narrowbodies? I guess it'll depend on how schedules overlap - any thoughts on who would fit, and how?
|Quoting tharanga (Reply 12):|
Aer Lingus is what, double daily to DUB in the evening, and sometimes in the evening to Shannon?
|Quoting nycdave (Reply 17):|
So will the final design basically involve just building the existing pier straight out from gates 26/27 towards the space T6 was in? That could actually be nice -- look like a coherent terminal, rather than a terminal with an add-on!
|Quoting B6FA4ever (Reply 18):|
For the exception of passenger seating in terminal...I couldn't see why gate 27 couldn't be used either
|Quoting B777ER (Reply 19):|
Any concept drawings showing a final buildout look on the net?

Looks great! Thanks for posting--I hadn't been able to find any renderings. These are roughly as I had imagined, but it's nice to be able to visualize it clearly.
It looks like this still leaves room for future expansion on the old T6 site.
|Quoting STT757 (Reply 8):|
T5i phase One:
convert 3 existing domestic gates to be able to accommodate international arrivals
T5i phase two:
build and additional 3 new gates for international arrivals
T5i phase three:
build four additional gates for international arrivals, plus three hardstand parking positions.
|Quoting nycdave (Reply 17):|
Also, why doesn't EI already fly to T5? While I know B6 makes heavy usage of all the gates they have, I have to imagine they could squeeze in a couple of widebody EI flights per day, if they had at least one convertible gate.
|Quoting B6JFKH81 (Reply 22):|
As far as future further expansion goes, STT757 shows that there just might be extra gates added
|Quoting B6MoneyGuyJFK (Reply 23):|
I think this will happen fairly soon (As in before T5i opens), but I also think that we want to get used to doing the servicing for Hawaiian first. Lets get our feet wet, get used to turning a larger aircraft around, and then we can take on another partner. I think that the Arrivals / Departures of Hawaiian / Aer Lingus would make it possible to use the same gate and check in desk at different times of the day.
|Quoting airbazar (Reply 13):|
Doesn't Aer Lingus have pre-clearance? They don't need an international gate.
|Quoting B6JFKH81 (Reply 11):|
So, you could see EI move over (do they pre-clear??).
