So does anyone know who will get these gates? I would assume that AA would get a few to consolidate their operation and combine on T and maybe UA the others? I do think that the City of ATL should take the AA "D" gates and make then Common Use. The D1/1A/2/3/4/5 CUTE gates are an absolute third world and embarrassing. NK with its 20+ daily flights, F9 12+ daily flights, AS and multiple B6 flights, you cannot even move. ATL should be embarrassed tbh!
They should be building a terminal between 27L/28 and the airport should be run by someone other than the city. They should not be embarrassed tho just because NK or F9 has to wait for a gate very once in a while. When you see how hard the arrivals get pushed in there and how efficiently the departures leave there’s not much to be embarrassed about. Sometimes the tower doesn’t have anywhere to put all of the airplanes esp when they come in at above the expected rate.
