The opening date referenced by United's chief pilot, November 1st, is a week away. Are they going to make an announcement?

If UA flights to and from Terminal A are all mainline, then yeah, all Express flights will be moving to Terminal C.

Both great firms. Can’t wait to see what design they propose for Terminal B.

Appreciate the list. Looks like Seattle is listed twice - is it actually 22 or is there a destination missing?

United runs a mixture of mainline and express between some of those cities. Will the express flights for those cities use C? Or will they use A?

Regardless, UA is gonna need more shuttle buses it seems.


If you look at the schedules, they go all mainline. For example, using March 24, 2023:

Atlanta 5 73G, 3 A320
Austin 4 A320, 1 A319
DFW 6 A320
MIA 3 A320, 5 738
BNA 4 A319, 1 738
MCO 6 739, 6 738
PHX 4 738
RDU 7 A319
SAN 4 738
SEA 4 737MAX 8
CLT 6 A319
TPA 5 A320, 4 738
PBI 7 738, 1 A320
LAS 7 738
RSW 3 A320, 1 A319, 2 738
BOS 2 A319, 9 73G
DTW 6 A319
MSY 4 A320, 1 A319
FLL 9 738
PDX 1 73G, 1 738
CHS 4 A319, 1 73G


Notice how none of these are set to be operated by their high capacity narrow-bodies (752/739). I know United loves to schedule a certain aircraft (aka 738) and vary between types, but will that be the case with this?

That was the second thing I looked at too (after scanning the city list). UA has also operated widebodies at certain times of the years on EWR-MCO for example. Wonder if any of their gates at the new Terminal A will be able to accommodate some of their widebody types.

Looks like MCO has 6 - 739's. Also, there are only 21 cities listed, someone mentioned SNA, but still missing one if there are going to be 23 cities.

Port Authority is in the midst of overhauling signage standards for the big 3 airport facilities. Basically what you find in Terminal C at LGA will be the standard moving forward for JFK, LGA and EWR. The biggest difference is the signing inside the new terminal at EWR is still static vs digital/dynamic like you'll find in Terminal C at LGA.

If I recall correctly United is getting 15 gates, looking at the schedules for the 23 destinations identified (including SNA) that should translate into 9.7 flights per day per gate.

I wouldn't be shocked if DL temporarily changed their mind about the migration from Terminal B to the new Terminal A. They have the new SkyClub, newly built out and expanded security areas (circa 2009-2010), new check-in areas on the middle level (circa 2014-2015) and might have an opportunity to finally revise and upgrade the gate areas in B-1. Not to mention the fact that it also wouldn't surprise me if PANYNJ is giving DL some incentive to stay where they are. Assuming they get Spirit out into Terminal A, that's more gate real estate for them to utilize as well. The one major gaping hole in B-1 is the ex-NW club (now a TSA lounge) which could be used for a DL partner to move in and build out a club as well, assuming they would stay there. It's not like B-1 is all that terrible, it just needs more TLC.

From what I can see, it only shows from Door 3 on… can’t see the beginning of the terminal on the cam.
It’s also possible Delta will move once the other gates open next spring/summer.

All of the gates are opening at the same time now, the 21 gate partial opening got cancelled and is the reason why the terminal was delayed and concourse A1 was taken down.

Curious if anyone with UA insider knowledge has heard whether the segregation of certain destinations to the new terminal is limited to departures only (i.e. arrivals could come from anywhere in the domestic network) or both departures and arrivals.

Which is way too high. No way UA would overschedule the terminal that much at their most delay-prone airport...

Wondering if the list shared here was an initial set of possibilities that was later whittled down.

For UA these aren't new flights, just flights being upgauged and or moved to a new terminal.

Don’t need to hear it anywhere, I’ve been to the airport many times the entire ramp is ready, the north end may have slight different ops until a 2 and a3 are torn down, but United can’t be moving in with 15 gates and expect AC, B6, and AA to share the remaining 6.

Understood. The question is about how much/which flights UA is moving to the new terminal. A list of destinations UA is supposedly going to be moving over was provided upthread, but the number of gates UA is getting in Terminal A doesn't seem sufficient to support that number of flights. UA (and AA and DL) don't tend to utilize their hub facilities at 9+ turns/gate/day like the LCCs sometimes do. At an airport as operationally unreliable as EWR, that would be a disaster waiting to happen. So I suspect we'll either see a shortened list of destinations that are moving over, or we'll learn that not all flights to those destinations will operate from Terminal A.

I'm not sure, they did do a media event this time last year which was well covered. I'm sure we are going to get plenty of new information and photos/videos from the upcoming event, especially on social media. This project definitely is getting different attention than the LGA project. Part of that was the fact that most of the LGA project was wrapping up when COVID hit, so they really didn't experience any disruptions or supply chain issues.

The EWR terminal A project was really going into high gear as COVID hit in March of 2020. So, there were work stoppages and supply chain issues that came into play. That probably made the agency hesitant to really get in front with the media and promotions when they might have been unclear of when it might actually be completed. Thankfully the situation has improved, and this project is wrapping up. There are more and more videos up on social media, they are cleaning up and testing systems. It seems obvious it will be ready for the Thanksgiving holiday rush. I'm going to guess Monday November 21, 2022.

Super excited - i hope for our flight back to DFW on November 25 we can depart from the new terminal.

If anyone has info on any open house I'd love to tell my family about it and go visit.

The EWR terminal A project was really going into high gear as COVID hit in March of 2020. So, there were work stoppages and supply chain issues that came into play. That probably made the agency hesitant to really get in front with the media and promotions when they might have been unclear of when it might actually be completed. Thankfully the situation has improved, and this project is wrapping up. There are more and more videos up on social media, they are cleaning up and testing systems. It seems obvious it will be ready for the Thanksgiving holiday rush. I'm going to guess Monday November 21, 2022.


I pray they don't open that terminal the week of Thanksgiving, there were surely be something wrong.

November 15 is rumored to be grand opening. We can probably expect announcements from airlines in the coming days!?

That's the media event, obviously the grand opening will be a later date.

Still haven't seen any press about this event. If anyone had a link to share about it, would be awesome

I realize that. Was thinking the Port Authority would announce the fact there's a press event, no?

I think they have their public relations folks reach out with personal invitations rather just openly soliciting. They probably run some kind of background checks on the folks who they normally invite to these types of events so they can get access to non public areas.

The official EWR Airport Twitter just posted a tweet saying that the wait is almost over. My guess is that the new terminal will open by Late November/Early December. https://twitter.com/EWRairport/status/1 ... 6290342912

United has started doing gate fittings with aircraft and ground crews.

I was in the Admirals Club last week and they told me November 29th for AA flights from the new terminal but the new Admirals Club won't open until March 2023.

We're flying American up on the 17th. If AA doesn't start until the 29th I'm guessing the new A and the old A will both be open at the same time for at least a few weeks?

Regardless exciting times for EWR.

United runs a mixture of mainline and express between some of those cities. Will the express flights for those cities use C? Or will they use A?

Regardless, UA is gonna need more shuttle buses it seems.


If you look at the schedules, they go all mainline. For example, using March 24, 2023:

Atlanta 5 73G, 3 A320
Austin 4 A320, 1 A319
DFW 6 A320
MIA 3 A320, 5 738
BNA 4 A319, 1 738
MCO 6 739, 6 738
PHX 4 738
RDU 7 A319
SAN 4 738
SEA 4 737MAX 8
CLT 6 A319
TPA 5 A320, 4 738
PBI 7 738, 1 A320
LAS 7 738
RSW 3 A320, 1 A319, 2 738
BOS 2 A319, 9 73G
DTW 6 A319
MSY 4 A320, 1 A319
FLL 9 738
PDX 1 73G, 1 738
CHS 4 A319, 1 73G


Notice how none of these are set to be operated by their high capacity narrow-bodies (752/739). I know United loves to schedule a certain aircraft (aka 738) and vary between types, but will that be the case with this?


Look at the list right above your reply. MCO 6 739, 6 738 So they are using a high capacity plane.

Okay so the ribbon cutting is Tuesday, however they are not set yet on what date operations will begin.

https://thepointsguy.com/news/newark-terminal-a-opening-date

[While the Port Authority is previewing the terminal next Tuesday, the agency hasn't decided exactly when it'll the doors to the public, a spokesperson told TPG. With the Thanksgiving travel period beginning just a week after the grand opening ceremony, airport authorities are still evaluating when would be the best time to commence operations from the new terminal with the least possible disruption to existing travel plans.


The Admirals Club person might be right.
