We recently saw the opening of the expansion to Terminal 2 and United Airlines moved over from Terminal 1. I'm curious if anyone has traveled through the new part of the terminal and would like to share their experiences. Is there any word yet about other airlines moving from Terminals 1 to 2 or vice-versa? There's quite a bit of empty real estate at Terminal 1 now. How are the renovations there coming along?
We're also approaching the first year anniversary of nonstop service by Japan Airlines to NRT. Does anyone have any info on how the flight is performing?
For spotters, in this last month there seems to be a regular Friday afternoon FedEx flight operated by an MD-11, a new type to see regularly in SAN and a great add. Does anyone know if this is planned as a permanent or just seasonal change?

Also, BA is moving their flight from LHR two hours earlier later this fall, so spotters should be able to catch the arrival in daylight for most of the winter. Next month we should also be able to see Alaska's CRJ-700 operated by SkyWest on the new flights to Boise.
Are there any other interesting developments or rumors about developments at SAN? Please discuss! Let's see if this thread can take on a life of its own.
