We have already established that a hardstand isn't the best option for servicing passengers. Having said that, it seems that hardstanding may be a way to establish some sort of demand until new facilities open up.
1) Would the hardstand be set up at a remote parking pad or somewhere else?
2) Are there any airlines that are using hardstands now at a major airport?
3) Are the cost to use a hardstand the same or cheaper than a regular gate?
4) What are potential considerations for hardstand operations? (weather, wind, jetwash, noise etc.)
