Re: Austin Texas Aviation Thread - 2020

What gates are operating at AUS? And by what airlines? Is there a CUTE gate arrangement in place for some/all gates? I ask because a friend told me that a significant portion of the terminal is blocked off, but couldn't provide details. Thanks in advance. Gates 8-28 are currently in use. Gates 11, ...

Re: Austin Texas Aviation Thread - 2020

We got a good update on what the first CIP of the new master plan will be on SSP from poster Mikey. Some of my takeaways about changes from the initial master plan: -I'm betting the new ABIA boss made the call to go with the tunnel instead of bridge to connect BJ and the new concourse but hopefully...

Re: United 787 at DFW

Was originally diverting to AUS but went DFW instead. AUS customs may not have had people available for screening passengers if it had cancelled. Possibly, AM2686 usually arrives around 12:30. AUS had a total of 23 diversions on Sunday, many of which were regionals, so it might have had more to do ...

http://austintexas.gov/news/october-2019-passenger-cargo-traffic-austin-bergstrom For a rolling twelve month period, the airport has now exceeded 17 million passengers. Pretty nuts.

Re: Austin Texas Aviation Thread - 2019

13 is a hardstand and not used. There are 33 gates at the BJT and 3 hardstand gates at the ST for a total of 36. Hard to imagine that the airport with exceed 17m passengers this year with only 36 gates. Why have it if it isn't used? Also, does BJ have too many gates for its size? I know the number ...

NK has been using gate 11 exclusively for the past couple of weeks and CUTE 5. They were using CUTE 6 regularly but haven't the last couple of weeks.


Gates 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 11 are all shared use. Gates 7 and 12 are both leased, but have shared use equipment on them.

Holla! Gate 6 in the eastern terminal extension is open. Gate 12 still had 1 plane this morning but that looks like it. Hopefully it'll be shut down so it can be relocated and the last of the stinger jetways can be removed. If there are no problems with Gate 6, Bridge 12 is scheduled to be taken ou...

Re: Austin Texas Aviation Thread - 2019

The jetways are attached for new east gates 6 and 8. Great, any idea if they have been marked for widebodies or just code C aircraft? Gate 6 will be another swing gate with both a wide body line (6A) and narrow body line (6). This creates the final configuration for the international gates; 6 narro...

Re: The Atlantic Tackles MH370 Final Conclusions

Ok, but again - you can't just selectively pick and choose some evidence but not others. If there were an emergency on board that somehow disabled the transponder and communications, you'd expect (as you note) them to divert to the nearest suitable airport. But they didn't do that. Maybe the pilots...

No full strength concrete yet. Only base layers to this point.

Yep. Latest update to the commission is now for a June opening. My GUESS is that could slip again if we have a wet April and May.

I'm guessing Gate 2 will be renumbered as Gate 11, Gate 3 renumbered as Gate 9 and Gate 4 renumbered as Gate 7. (Odd numbers on the south side of the pier and even numbers on the north side of the pier. Notice how Gate 13 is on the south side of the pier and Gate 14 is on the north side of the pier...

Engine issues. They'd just had an engine overhauled, and it sounds like it may have been the culprit. I know one of the guys at the controls. There was plenty of DC-3 experience in the cockpit.
