Page 13 shows specifically which ones will be modernized.
It appears ThyssenKrupp, KONE, and Schindler are participating in this RFP based on the sign-in sheet (in a separate document), with Otis sitting out. The last modernization project at T4 was done by ThyssenKrupp.
I'm surprised at the prioritization putting the B1 escalators at a higher priority than walkways 5-8, one of those goes down on a daily basis at a minimum.
Agreed, I would think that all 4 of those walkways are approaching the end of their serviceable life
I sure hope they get this done. PHX is my home airport and in just the last 2 weeks I have flown 2 RT. I am a little bit older but fortunately have no physical problems but both trips this month had some of the walkways out of service necessitating some long walks. Sometimes you are just tired and are not up for the long walk. Besides I like to look out the window while riding so I can check out the planes!
