I think DL has something like 8 RON aircraft so I'd imagine the C gates are used primarily for the morning push. I flew out of C15 on DL one day. It was sort of strange boarding a DL flight from C.
I agree, I think we may see some AA/US consolidation. I'm hearing US will move to C in July or August.
For WN I just took a look at the airport's flight arrivals page and for today 6 were in use. They can run 60 flights a day with six gates, so they still have some room to work with, but not much...right now the combined FL/WN is around 55 a day. By the time the new terminal opens, they may very well need a 7th gate.
's Wikipedia page, for what it's worth, says the following:
Concourse B opened in 1974 and has 11 Gates: B1, B2
-B12, B15. US Airways (Gates B10, B12, B15), AirTran Airways (Gate B2
), and Southwest Airlines (Gates B2
, B9, B11) operate out of this concourse. Gate B1 space has been taken over by TSA
for passenger screening, and the gate is no longer in use.
Except customs pre-cleared flights, all nonstop international arrivals are handled by Concourse C. This concourse also contains both common-use and overflow gates, available for infrequent services and charter flights as well. It was also remodeled in 2007 after the damage of the February 2006 tornado, which was designed by Manning Architects.
Concourse C opened on March 18, 1992 and has 15 Gates: C1 – C12, C14 – C16. JetBlue Airways (Gate C2
), Alaska Airlines (Gate C4), Spirit Airlines (Gate C6
), Frontier Airlines (Gate C9
), Delta Airlines (Gates C11, C15, C16), American Airlines (Gates C8
, C10, C12) all operate out of this concourse. Gates C1, C3
, C5, and C7 are currently common-use and overflow gates used during busy periods and for charter flights. C11 is also utilized by larger international arrival aircraft, due to offering the largest available apron space, and direct access to the concourse's customs/immigration area.
The newest concourse, D, opened on December 23, 1996 and houses a Delta Air Lines Sky Club in between gates D2 and D4, the sole such airline club remaining at Armstrong. A six-gate rotunda, designed by Sizeler Thompson Brown, has been built on the end of the concourse. This rotunda includes gates D7
Concourse D has 12 operating Gates: D1 – D12. Delta Air Lines (Gates D2, D4, D6
, D10, D12), United Airlines (Gates D1, D3
, D5, D9, D11), and Air Canada Express (Gate D7
) operate out of this concourse.
