Re: Airports that skip a terminal number

IAD screwed it up starting in the late 90's. Concourse A used to be the concourse at the base of the old control tower adjacent to the main terminal. When the regional airline terminal at the end of Concourse B was built, that became Concourse A. The west half of the old Concourse A suddenly became ...
