Terminal C will only have 15 gates, every gate can handle international and domestic flights. 15 "gates", but 19 aircraft parking positions. The A380 gates and 2 other widebody gates are MARS gates, so can handle either 1 widebody or 2 narrowbody aircraft. I expect B6 to have use of the &...Jump to post
My understanding is that CBP can't/won't staff three FISs, so the one in AS1 will have to close :checkmark: The popular guess before Covid was that Spirit would have to split their operations by doing domestic from AS1 and international arrivals on AS4. NK, B6 and WN do this now. (Split domestic an...Jump to post
The FIS in Airside 1 will close when Terminal C opens in Spring of 2022. Pre-pendemic Airside 3 was busting at the seams, handling the largest percentage of passengers of the 4 Airsides. Now, not so much! Post pandemic.....who knows? Currently only one Airline is confirmed for Terminal C, B6. GOAA w...Jump to post
CBP decides whether the FIS on Airside 1 stays open or not, and right now it's looking like not. Late evening arrivals and early morning arrivals go to Airside 4 because CBP will only staff 1 FIS at those times. AD seasonal early arrival also operates out of Airside 4 with their normal evening depar...Jump to post
After C opens. NK will move to Airside 1 and use the current B6 Gates (1-9). The 20s wing could see AS, SY, 3M and domestic charters. F9 will have 10-19. NK is hoping the FIS on Airside 1 will stay open in some capacity. I'm not sure if this will happen? Also As of June, on a rolling 12 month basis,...Jump to post

There are gators in almost any significant waterhole in Florida. MCO is no exception. btw, it was a taxiway to an airside ramp which has significant ponds on each side. I hate how in the media that EVERYTHING at an airport happens on the Runway!!!!!Jump to post
I really comes down to the organization running the airport and how their leases are formulated. An airport like JFK where airlines can lease the entire terminal, the airline has the most say and expense (i.e. DL at LGA). If the airport control all of the terminals and has an exclusive lease agreeme...Jump to post
B6 has requested 14 of the 16/24 Gates of the new South Terminal when it opens. That would leave less than a handful of gates to accommodate international carriers that are also moving to the Terminal. The 3 additional gates is an relatively "easy" addition that would require minimal engin...Jump to post
As noted above.... keep the same nomenclature

A219 / A220 / A221

An interesting flight that no one has mentioned is DL's flight MIA - MCO and reverse that connects up with their MCO/GRU service. This flight has been operating for at least a couple of years so it must be successful even though DL's MCO-GRU flights overfly MIA both ways. MCO-MIA is there to facili...Jump to post

No, there are no current plans. This area is know as the "bird bath". There were previous plans, but they where hinged on lengthening Runway 17R/35L 1000ft to the north. The expansion would have added 7 gates, that are actually marked out now but currently used as hardstands. As you noted,...Jump to post
No. It will not. I don't think there are many (if any) US airports that have this anymore. CBP doesn't allow TWOV (Transit without visa) anymore. Everyone entering the US must clear as if landed and must go through TSA screening before boarding any departing flight . The Airside 4 FIS will continue ...Jump to post
DL's A333 in a similar config to the A359 would only seat 275 or so. The A333 does not have the Delta One suites, nor the premium economy cabin. To compare apples to apples (which the current seat configs don't allow) there would be a 30 or more seat difference between the A333 and the A359 in DL's ...Jump to post
MCO stats are available on their website are only for rolling 12 months. VS4ever is looking for older detailed reports.

Yes, seasonal SCL-MCO resumes in January. Up 1 weekly frequency to x3 weekly.
MCO surpassed MIA once before on the busiest list (2007? IIRC), but fell during the last economic recession. I think there are a few spots that separate MIA and MCO on the list last year.
And to that note, the A321s that DL just ordered will be "primarily assembled in the US" (in Alabama), so they do support American jobs in that way!Jump to post
The Airside 1 FIS will close and the Airside 4 FIS, with the currently under construction expansion, will remain open after Terminal C opens in 2020. It will be close as far as MCO passing MIA, again this year. On a calendar basis, we are slightly ahead as of October passenger numbers. We'll see wha...Jump to post
As of October 2017, on a rolling 12 months, MCO is now over 44 million passengers.
Not bad for a facility that was originally built to handle 25 million.
After the current construction, not including the new South Terminal (Terminal C), the MCO's design capacity is 45 million passengers.
This entire thread is a sad reflection of today's society as a whole. People are so busy arguing their opinion that facts become irrelevant. A flawed argument looked at and supported thru myopic vision will always remained flawed because new or different information is not acceptable. This site is f...Jump to post

A first glance, the wing span may be the same, or very slightly less as the new winglet although taller, is more vertical and less curvy.Jump to post
What you see is not actually the south terminal, it is the ITF (intermodal terminal facility). The train station in short. The new terminal has only just started ground clearing and prep. It will be due west of what you see now. When the south terminal (C) opens. The FIS on Airside 1 will close and ...Jump to post

The concept of 100% employee screening is a fantasy. Its neither practical nor cost efficient. 3 Airports in the US currently claim 100% employee screening (or something close to 100%) MIA, MCO and ATL.

Sorry, but this is not as black and white as it seems. 1) The road is not just a road. It is the only access to the Simpson Bay/Beacon Hill area, where there are homes and businesses. So, just removing the road is not an option. 2) The airport is approx. 70% surrounded by water so "rerouting&qu...Jump to post
