I was in C yesterday and was thinking, will UA convert the existing B/C concourses to primarily RJ gates while moving the majority of the mainline ops to the new Satellites when built?

It just dawned on me how small the hold rooms are in the existing B/C. They’d probably be more suitable for RJ ops.

Can someone explain how the airport operated before the reconfigurations started? I know now in a west flow it’s 22L and 28R for departures and 28C 27L/R for arrivals, inverse for East flow except switch 22L for 10R.

How did it all work before 27R and 28L/C were built?

28R 13 years ago was shorter and named 27L and it operates together with 22R or 32L for arrivals (depends on winds). Departures were former 27L (same runway as for arrivals) , 22L and sometimes former 27R. In this configuration 32L was aslo often used for departures.
Opposite traffic was 4R / former 9R and 9L for arrivals and 4L / 9R for departures. There was also 14L / 14R pattern for arrivals and 14L/ 22L for departures.
Never saw departing a/c from 22R and 4R as well. Got plenty of pictures of departing a/c from 14R and when arrivals were former 27L / 32L pattern. Never saw simultaneous arrivals to 32L / 32R.
What I remeber they ranamed E/W runways in 2007 then 27L became 28 till when it was extended and todays runway 27R was open they renamed it again as 28R what we got today.

If you can find an old airport diagram this will make more sense.

Prior to any new runway being added these were the options for configurations at ORD:
Landing...…......…...…………….Departing...………........Remarks
4L/4R...…………...……………...9L/32R...……...……… strong NE winds (very inefficient)
9L/9R...…...…………...………...4L/32L-T10/32R ……. IFR east winds
14L/14R...………………………..22L/27L...…………….. IFR east/SE winds
22L/22R …………………...……. 27L/27R....…………...strong SW winds (very inefficient)
27L/27R ……...………………… 22L/32L-T10/32R...….IFR or VFR west winds
32L/32R...……………………….. 27L/4L ……………… IFR strong N winds (very inefficient)
32L/27R "Plan A" ………………....27L/32R ……………...NW winds, wet runways, WX 700 and 2 or better
32L/27L/27R ......................…... 32R/32L-T10...............NW winds, dry runways, VFR
4R/9R "Plan X"..........................32L-T10/4L/9L/32R..... NE winds, VFR
4R/9R/9L.....................................32L-T10/4L/9L........... NE winds, VFR
4R/9L "Modified Plan X"..............4L/9R/32R................. NE winds, WX 700 and 2 or better
14R/9R "Plan R"........................... 22L/14L/14L.............. SE winds, runways dry, LAHSO ops, VFR
14L/9R.........................................22L/4L/9L...................SE winds, wet runways, WX 700 and 2 or better
14R/22R "Plan B"..........................22L/27L/9L ............... south winds, LAHSO, WX 700 and 2 or better
14R/14L/22R............................... 22L/27L..................... south winds, LAHSO 14L arrivals hold short of 22R arrivals, VFR
14R/22R/22L............................... 27L/22L..................... south winds, wet runways, VFR
22R/27L "Plan W"........................ 22L/32L-T10/32R.......SW winds, WX 700 and 2 or better
22R/27R/27L .............................. 22L/32L-T10/32R...... SW winds, VFR, LAHSO, 32R departures in double arrival gap, 22R arrivals hold short of 27R arrivals

There were a few rogue configurations in rare instances and some of the departure runways might be incomplete but these were be basic configurations. Best ATC job of my life!

A couple of things UA appears to be doing at ORD:

"In addition, United is working on tech enhancements at its hub airports, including an indoor GPS network at Chicago O'Hare, with which passengers can map out step-by-step directions to their gate via United's app"

"Clear lanes at O'Hare, ..., are coming "very soon," VP of loyalty and head of MileagePlus Luc Bondar said."

A little more sleep for a few of the burbs

O’Hare’s ‘Fly Quiet’ plan, which spreads out nighttime jet noise, will start Sunday.

A plan intended to spread the pain of nighttime jet noise more equitably among communities around O’Hare International Airport will start Sunday and continue into May.

For me will be less sleep :P So looks like 4L/22R resurfacing project is done. I was reading how this plan will work few months ago and indeed this plan contains runway 4L/22R which was under construction a month ago. I will see some arrivals on 22R once I am living close to RIDGE reporting point (500 feet from 71IL heliport).

I think you'll be OK. I can tell you from experience at ORD that very few of the heavy freighters that operate after 10 PM will accept either of the 4s for departure if there is a >10,000' runway available and the taxi distance is substantially shorter.

I know I'll be fine. Just kidding. I remember times when only 22R and 27L (today 28R) were in use and mostly European heavies were landed on 22R. A lot B747's too. I wish to have them here during a day so I do not have to go near O'Hare to do some plane spotting :)

That's a sad day for me. I too will sorely miss seeing that baby blue Queen parked at T5: that is an iconic image in my personal memory, and the KL 747 defines a lot of my childhood memories of ORD.

The O'hare FB pages has a tarmac view of the final arrival. :cry:

Wow fantastic! It looks great...and let's give credit where credit is due: this is was delivered on time or even a little early, as they budgeted until early 2020 initially. Can't wait to see the rest of the renovations.

I think that was myself but I found info later. It already flying a week. It came today morning, departed about 4pm as NH8401. This flight arriving at ORD on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. So far all flights operated on JA772F aircraft.
Got some shots of arrivals and departure.

Also DHL flying on B77F to ORD as CVG relief . Route is HKG-ANC-JFK-ORD as 9S7640 (operated by Southern Air). So far there was only 3 flights to ORD. Scheduled arrival is 2:55pm. Today operated by N777SA.

UA doesn't need a map. They need to get rid of all that retail crap that's encroaching on the walkways. Showing my age, but I can recall when the terminal first opened. The combination of smaller aircraft, lower load factors and retail where it belonged made it an amazing space. Now it approaches something third world.

I’m pretty impressed with the new food court near C18. Lots of very needed food options, though probably not enough seating.

A step in the right direction for sure.

Now that 9C/27C is in the home stretch and the extension of 9R/27L is underway, I have a question. This has been discussed here briefly before, but I know there are some ATC's on here with lots of insight.

O'hare will now be the only airport in the world capable of Quad parallel arrivals with two other parallel departure runways. From what I have read here previously, this is not currently possible at O'hare, and it can only currently handle triple parallel arrivals

1) Why are they limited to triple arrivals currently

2) What is involved in the process of upgrading to quad arrival capability? What system constraints do they face? What obstacles need to be overcome?

3) Can the capability to perform quad arrivals be obtained before the completion of the sixth parallel runway?

It’s quite complicated to explain all the issues that is going into the quad approaches. One of the issues is you have to plan for worst case scenario. If you have multiple nordo aircraft and they all need to go around, where do you put all the planes. One example could be landing 4 with 2 parallel departures you could have 6 planes all in the air, so they need to figure out where to safely put all the planes with a route to fly that is published if they can’t talk to ATC. Also they need to create procedures if someone drifts on final what do they do with the other parallel arrivals if that happens. So a lot of discussions need to be had and plans modeled based on something that hasn’t been done yet.

I just heard on Ch. 9 that there was a slide off at ORD not too long ago.


Here's the link. https://wgntv.com/2019/11/11/plane-slid ... e-airport/

Not much information at the moment, aside from an American Eagle Flight #4125 with 38 passengers on board; no injuries reported.

That right wing is on/in the ground. Did the right main gear collapse?

Any landing you can walk away from is a good landing! It's a bonus if you can fly the plane again!!

Looks like they did go around once. FR24 shows area where she stopped. I am thinking to go on the Hills to see what is going on. Maybe Delta Cargo might be closer point. They did land on 10L following Flightradar so looks like runway will be closed for a while.
Also saw few a/c's departed from 4L so its definitely done.

We did have some KE B748's in the past. But not regular. That is nice to see them every day :)

Do we know yet if this is seasonal?

Also, where are they getting this 748 from? A SE Asia frequency?
No not that TSA.

I doubt it's seasonal. Korean has been a model of consistency at O'Hare. They're taking advantage of Asiana exiting the route.
Its all about opportunity and priorities; also makes it even less likely that United would jump into the route.
Not certain who is getting the 773 but perhaps BOS?
refer to:

Have no idea who's lost their 748.



Will be great to see her hanging around T-5 in the morning.
