No real plans have been made for integrating AA
and US. It will depend on the number of lease gates they will request.
and US lease 4 gates each. If the number of leased gates stay at 8 then either could accommodate the other at their current wing.....not taking RON aircraft into consideration. With the DL
/NW merger, DL
did not increase the number of gates. With the UA
/CO merger, UA
increased the total number of leased gates by 3.
and US have open check-in counter space next to their current space. ... so that should not be an issue.
My thinking is that AA
would move to Airside 3 with US for 2 reasons. First.... the new AA
will be the 2nd largest carrier at MCO
). The US wing has their old Club space a available to create a AA
/Oneworld Lounge. Oneworld is the only alliance without a lounge at MCO
. Plus that airside has the most open gates for RON aircraft. Second...B6
is the fastest growing carrier at MCO
would have room to grow without having to relocate.
