CHS Gate Swap From Earlier This Decade

Wed Aug 01, 2007 5:16 am

Howdy folks-

I spent my late middle school and high school years in Charleston, but my folks moved after I graduated from high school in 1998 so I've only flown in and out of CHS once since then. I'll be flying in there next week again to visit some friends and it got me to thinking.....

When did US move from Concourse A to Concourse B and why was that move made?

When we first moved there in 1993, United had A1 (and was bringing in 72s from ORD) that was also used for one of US's extra RONs. Delta had A2 and A3 (a mixture of MD88s, 72s and 75s from ATL), US had A4 and A5 (with non-stop mainline service to DCA and LGA). American had B1 (MDs from RDU) and, at the time, I think B2-B5 were vacant.

When I left in 1998, the layout was essentially the same with CO having B2 and B3 and AA having pulled out.

Anyways...I was just going down memory lane and was curious what, if any, insight folks could provide.
