The only talk has been about WN releasing some of their gates in S4 (C11-C19) since their utilization is already low but WN has wanted to hold onto the gates and the City has had some second thoughts from my understanding since by WN having all 32 gates on the south side there is no room for AA expansion or further INTL carriers


The high C gates don’t seem to be underutilized to me. Every time I come home from a four or five day trip, our plane parks at C17-C19. I swear someone at WN operations is messing with me.

They do, but I'm assuming it would take quite a while to process a large aircraft.

Not high C specifically, more so their utilization overall. WN can manage to close at least two gates on each concourse for most of the day other than their late PM push and early originators. That would be the same as AA being able to close down 3-4 gates per concourse which just doesn't really happen.

WN could afford to add the eight gates and then give up four of the old gates and still accomplish their expansion plans. Unfortunately the city really shoehorned themselves into having to do a rapid expansion again in about two years when they need more space on the north side.

It's already started in the "AS to join OneWorld / AA to make SEA an Intl gateway" thread, if AA and AS merge down the road that means SEA becomes a hub then PHX becomes redundant and will be the first to go blah, blah, blah. Of course I fully expect Delta to retaliate for this one!


Yeah, and Phoenix was supposed to be dehubbed by now after the merger according to the experts on this website.

The vast majority of the people here have no clue what they're talking about. I try to stick to threads like this one where I know informed people will be participating.


I couldn't agree with you more.

DL isn't going to start any int'l. routes out of PHX, and AA doesn't treat PHX like a red-headed stepchild. Any DL retaliation/counter-move to this AA/AS deal will come at SEA itself (DL building it up even more than they've already done) or at MIA with their new LATAM partnership.


Losing our hometown airline and headquarters didn't endear me to AA, but just added to my disdain. Perhaps, I just have an axe to grind with them from years ago that I never got over due to their continued lousy "customer service" and superior attitude at DFW. My Mom used to work for AA. We were flying non-rev years ago from DFW to ORD and upgraded to first class. One of their lousy gate agents (I have worse names for him - drama queen being one of them) basically pulled us out of first class simply because I was wearing a pair of $300 Versace pants that he thought were jeans (they weren't jeans, didn't look or feel like jeans). It was entirely an embarrassing situation that I subsequently reported to AA once we landed in ORD.


Ah, well...things like that happen in mergers, and it was inconceivable that AA's HQ would have wound up anywhere other than DFW. At least they didn't close down the PHX hub as happened to other hubs in other mergers (like MEM, CVG, etc.). I can empathize with your axe to grind based on the experience you relate, that was ridiculous...I remember those dress codes from when I used to non-rev (my dad worked for KE) and it was just nonsensical...non-rev's were not supposed to discuss their status with revenue pax, yet you could easily pick out all the non-rev's based on how they were dressed! Crazy.
