DEN gates B80-B95 to be demolished?

Fri Mar 12, 2021 8:07 am

I was connecting to a CRJ at DEN a few days ago and found myself waiting at gate C94 for a while. It was a less than enjoyable experience. Way too crowded and poor food choices. There are some new gates under construction nearby, probably 61-79 and it looks like the 80-94 gates are too close for them to remain. Is that entire structure to be demolished when the new gates are ready? Will the CRJs get full contact gates?

I generally enjoy connecting at DEN but the experience last Tuesday was terrible.

Do you mean B80-B94? The gates will remain but the odd gates inside the horseshoe will no longer be there. There is not enough room inside the horseshoe to park planes on both sides. Once the odd gates are removed, there will be half the quantity of passengers but the same amount of room.

That is correct, B81-B93 (odds only) are already gone. The new gates on the north horseshoe will be E175 on the south side and mainline on the north side.

Remember when those gates were brand new and we got excited to use them because the alternatives were the non-jetway "trailer park" gates where the new terminal is going in? That, and getting a sandwich from Heidi's (is it still there?)!

Ahhh, the good ol' United Express gates at DEN...a tragedy of planning a beautiful airport and forgetting about the "express" services until the last minute. Then building a haphazard mis-matched collection of structures that never really worked that has now been torn down.

Thank goodness for research sake that Google satellite images is HOPELESSLY out of date with their "3D" view. For example, switch between that so-called fancy 3D view and the regular satellite view on Tijuana airport, and you'll see in one image a fully functioning Cross Border Xpress facility, whereas the other view shows a dirt field unturned by any construction at all.

The same is true with DEN. Here's the before picture, when the old facility was still standing:

Image

And after the teardown:

Image

I only had the chance to use that now-gone building, and I have to admit I had no idea where I was or where I was going. I followed the signs up, down, left, right, and finally found myself inside the main Terminal B building. And all I could think of was, "why?". I'm glad it's gone.

Half the gates are gone now but it was still very crowded. Heidi’s is still there but there was no place to sit down to eat. Waiting until I was on my CRJ-200 didn’t seem any better. Maybe post COVID UA will go back to larger aircraft DEN-RNO. My incoming E175 was at a normal gate so that was much better.

I don't think they "forgot" about the express services. It's just that expectations about service levels for regional partners have changed dramatically since the new DEN opened. 25 years ago, virtually all regional service was on props and the expectation was that passengers would sit in a big, common waiting room and walk out on the ramp to/from their aircraft. A facility like Comair's since-demolished Concourse C at CVG (which opened in 1994) was revolutionary at the time -- it still had the common waiting rooms but passengers were protected from the elements for almost the entire walk to and from their aircraft. Regional carriers still had relatively strong brands and there was little product consistency between the regional carriers and their mainline partners.

Today, people expect to board regional aircraft -- which are almost all jets -- via jetbridges. Mainline carriers expect onboard product and branding to be a close match to their own mainline product and branding. It takes time for physical infrastructure to catch up, and United from about 2001 to 2015 really didn't have the money to spend on big facilities upgrades.

DEN wasn't the last example of that failing. The Northwest C gates when they opened DTW McNamara in 2002 presented the same defect.

I do wonder if the north side gate would work for UA's new bus service if that continues past the end of this year, the busses would be parallel to the building. The jet bridges could be replaced with covered ramps to the busses, I wouldn't think they would need more than 20ft from the edge of the building.

While the commuter area of the airport is probably the most run down area, they will be updating the facility when they start refreshing the concourses later this year.

Understood, and I do apologize that I wasn't clear in what I meant.

What I was trying to put forth was that the original design - for the prop planes - was a bad design even then. As in, "from the moment the plans were approved". The seemingly endless corridors and endless walking coupled with the vast warehouse-like waiting area could have been better designed in the 1990's. It was just so out-of-step with everything else at the airport.

Another thing to remember is that back in 1995 there were so many commuter prop flights that it was impractical to build individual gates for them all. UA* used to have regular shuttle flights using Beech 1900s on short routes to places like Cheyenne, Ft. Collins and Pueblo. Now there's only one flight per day to CYS, 0 to FNL, and 2 to PUB.

It was pretty much in-step with other facilities from the era at other airports -- look at Concourse A at IAD, the old Concourse E at SLC, Concourse D at CLE, Concourse E at PIT, etc. Heck, the banjos on the south side of Terminal B at IAH were replaced with that kind of design less than ten years ago (not to mention the A3 gates which WN will use temporarily). And the prop gates at the east end of Concourse A at DEN were probably even worse.

Better experiences like Concourses A & B at MSP, Terminal F at PHL, Concourse E at CLT, and the proper build-out of DTW Concourse C didn't really happen until the 2000-2010 time period.

With the new expansion the gates must close to allow 5 E175 sized gates directly across the taxiway from them to open, the current gates only support CRJs where the new gates will support both.

Again, my personal experience is that DEN's just seemed to be worse than others. I think, again for me, the process of the hallways, the up and down, and the generally thrown-together nature of those gates at DEN just seem worse.

Having been through IAH utilizing both its old banjo-style gates and the new "capital E" style, I get why the banjos were replaced. But at the time, they would have seemed logical. And I get why Continental/United would have wanted the E-shape of the new gates. It's just my subjective opinion that Denver's was the worst of the worst.

There is no real start date, the country's borders remain closed for the time being and realistically we can look towards service resumptions in the 3rd and 4th quarter of this year if all variables remain favourable.

Not much going on down at COS either, we just have 1 bizjet getting ready to depart. 5 inches of super wet snow, like a Slurpee in consistency but the wind is picking up. A friend in Ft Collins is reporting 22 inches of snow and many branches breaking off trees. I-25 completely closed between COS and Castle Rock. Looks like north of the Palmer Divide is getting hammered.

the news is reporting that the airport will remain closed until 14:00. Wonder how much of that is due to staffing problems vs. removing snow. Didn't expect DEN to stay closed until mid-afternoon.

Looks like it is snow removal.

Snow removal. However: anecdotal, but everyone I keep in close contact with was unable to get in to work this morning. I was off work due to it being my normal days off - I lucked out, but I would have been unable to drive in anyway as I live in COS.

I was in SLC yesterday. Delta was initially not cancelling flights to DEN but cancelled them all mid-afternoon, right as I arrived from STL. As I was walking to bag claim, I saw some 100-150 people in a line trailing from the Delta customer service desk.
Next flights:
Who knows? :/

March Update.

These updates may become a little less exciting as most of the work is moving to the interiors, so some fun plane pictures are added for excitement.

A West

Looks very similar to last month, few remaining sections of the exterior to complete.

B East

The exterior glass is nearly complete, work still continues on the South side for the new utilities.

A quick passenger count update, last week 3/22-3/28, passenger traffic was only down 28% compared to the same week in 2019. On Sunday, the airport screened over 58,000 passengers. For reference in 2019 the highest screening day was 87,000 and the average for 2019 was 60,000.

Great Hall Update

On 4/7 the airport provided City Council with an update on the Great Hall. After the initial issues with the contractor the airport is now providing quarterly updates. The good news is the project is still on the revised schedule with most systems complete this summer, and opening 4th quarter. With the budget that was approved with the new contractor, the project is currently 25 million under budget, DEN advised that this would be rolled into the next phases of the renovations. The next phase of the project will start 3rd quarter of this year so they can retain all of the crew onsite for cost savings. One of the next big changes that will occur will happen this summer when arriving passengers will exit the train to the north so they can complete work on the south side of the center, on Level 5.

Below are some pictures from both myself and the presentation.

Image

The first two concessions announced, both coffee shops.
Image

DEN noted that the Mayor is asking the airport to find a way to complete the move of screening up to level 6 sooner than is currently scheduled, as of right now that is all the info they have. I predict we will probably see the next phase of construction announced sometime this year as long as traffic continues to pick back up.

Thanks as always for sharing. I really just hope they get done with doing the entire Great Hall project as planned. I can only imagine how unpleasant that's going to be when we're back to 65+ million passengers a year squeezing through the construction site.

Also, what is up with Caribou Coffee? It's not good. I would much rather have a Peet's or more Starbucks in the airport. Kabod looks cool. I've never heard of that one before.

Hawaiian maybe but I think it’s more likely breeze which would be interesting since I don’t think they would go that far west to start but this is very interesting

Hawaiian is a really good guess in my opinion. They should really shift more of their long-haul aircraft to the states for this summer.

That would be intriguing with southwest going to fly to Hawaii from Denver probably not tell next year because of the max 7 and United flying many flights I feel like they would get killed though chances are it wouldn’t be daily

I don’t have a source they have said it many articles that they would use the max seven to do that route

Hawaiian makes a lot of sense. Probably trying to prod the WN bear, presumably before WN gets the planes for DEN-HNL (as someone said... MAX-7s).

UA is outrageously expensive on DEN-Hawaii, and it’s mostly there to funnel connections, though I’m sure they’ll try and defend it. But if HA can get a share of the market before WN potentially starts it nonstop, could easily be a success

Same question. And supposedly there are "many" of them. :cheeky:

Some random guesses:

- Avianca to SAL (pretty sure this has minimal O&D)
- VivaAerobus to MTY/MEX
- JSX to LAS
- Swiss takes over Edelweiss' ZRH flight.

Or, what if it's a new cargo airline? Korean Air, Cathay Pacific, etc.

I’m gonna say Viva they have been pretty bold. The AV one could also work cause they’re getting closer with United.

Based on the fact the clue said eye, I will guess Hawaiian. Since the logo has 1 eye.... just my guess. HA has some slack ground time on some A330 aircraft
I am me and no one else...so my opinions are mine
