I remember them previously having 2 or 3 gates at the end of the A Concourse because when the new terminal first opened, my company had a large break room and offices underneath the end of the A concourse. Shortly after that we lost ground handling contracts because US Air bought Piedmont and their employees started working US Air flights and United started working their own. Shortly after that, Southwest took over all of that big office at the end of A and we were left with nothing more than our old secretaries office with just a couch, a table and a microwave and TV. Our station manager's office was upstairs on the B Concourse. Eventually we got the TWA ground handling contract back and started using the break room under A-1 and A-2.
Not sure if I ever knew that Envoy was handling AC. flights. When I left in late 2002, United was working AC flights off of A3 and occasionally a Mainline AC flight off of A4. The only time we would see a Mainline AC flight was if it was a charter for a Canadian NHL team or sometimes during the country music Fan Fair.
Here's a link to some pictures that I took between 2000 and 2002. The very last pictures in this list are mostly from the day of 9/11. They are the ones where you see almost every gate filled, planes parked all over the remote area / Penalty Box and against the jet blast fence. I posted these last year but in case anybody missed them... https://inopgauge.imgbb.com/
AC moved to the C Concourse sometime in the mid 2000s. MQ handled them on gate C12 if I remember correctly. Then they were using A1 by 2014ish. Now they’re on A2 since Spirit uses A1. Airport is out of gates.
