Re: Austin Texas Thread - 2018

So the original parking lot would be razed and a new terminal built in its place. What would be interesting is who gets what gate space on the new concourse. Does Delta want the new concourse gates or more gates on the concourse. given new skyclub will be on east end of old concourse, i would presu...

The FAA still has to approve the plan after city council signs off on it. The bridge is suppose to be high enough that any plane can pass under it.



Correct. It's spec'd out high enough for 744 empannage.

Re: Austin Texas Thread - 2018

Why build an elevated bridge and not an underground tunnel to future concourses? It's highly likely the elevated bridge is the choice because of the speed of construction. The hyper fast growth of the city has currently put the airport many years behind in terms of matching the pax/airline growth p...

Re: DL new summer 2018 transatlantic flights

And yet, nothing from AUS to either AMS or CDG........... Amazing. I am utterly shocked AUS has not been able to land a second year round full service TATL flight. Widebody GSE equipment has been sent here. ULDs arrive next month. AMS will likely stay after trial run in March. Rumor from DL account...

Re: BA upgauges AUS to 747 starting Summer 2018

Simply unreal. I'm at a loss for words. Next, BA will upgauge AUS to A380. Local rumor has it that all nine new gates are widebody gates with two of the nine being A380 capable. So you never know..... https://www.gensler.com/projects/austin-bergstrom-international-airport-expansion Looks more like ...

Re: DL Future Expansion

Unrelated to ATL, there is another thread saying BA's AUS flight will be on a 744(!) next summer. I wonder what that means for AUS-AMS. Means nothing at all if anything less likely as BA is dumping more seats in the market KLM617 I wouldn't necessarily say it means nothing at all. And I definitely ...

Re: Delta gates at airports for expansion

At AUS, DL has Gates 4, 5, and 6. On occasion, they also use CUTE gates 3 or 3A. AUS is pretty much at capacity (or very near it). All gates are assigned, with five of them (2, 3, 3A, 13, 25) being CUTE gates. AM, AC, AS, BA, DE, F9, DY/DU (when they launch next year), VX, and Y4 do not have any as...

Re: DL Future Expansion

I find this interesting, so if you go on the flydelta app, you'll see that in terms of domestic "hubs", MCO is included in the advanced terminal maps where it shows you a picture of virtually the whole airport. I was intrigued to know if this is a nudge towards formally calling MCO a focu...

Re: DL Future Expansion

I would look toward where DL has a huge FF base, and what immediately comes to mind is BNA, MCI, AUS, PVD and JAX I can see the first 3 getting AMS service, with the latter 2 getting seasonal AMS or CDG service. JAX is the shot in the dark though. It likely is a consideration, but this should alrea...

Re: Delta gates at airports for expansion

Supposedly , and this is only a rumor, but someone said that Delta wanted at least 6 of the 8-9 new gates being built. It's hard to believe and I think it probably was something botched from someone saying they wanted to fly out of 6 of the new gates, so perhaps they'd be CUTE and not used exclusiv...
