Has anyone noticed that the cell phone lot has been relocated? The old one was so far (near the Metra station), I never used it. I used to goto a maintenance lot on Schlitz Road and watch the planes land on 27L but the enforcement was getting more aggressive. Now they have a lot just north of my old illegal lot on Bessie Coleman Dr. just north of Schlitz Road. Much better location than the old lot and will probably be used more because of it. Plan watching isn't as good due to a large mound dirt between the lot and 27L

Considering that at 7pm, there weren't that many flights putting off passengers (there was virtually no line at Immigration), it seemed to me that the BA flight should have been using 2 carousels. We were about 20 minutes late, and passengers making connections were getting anxious about the amount of time they were going to have to claim bags, go through Customs, recheck bags, and get over to a domestic terminal.

Is 10/15/15 still holding for 28L/10R? Seems like 10C/28C just got up and running, and here we are opening a new runway! Exciting times at ORD.

The question that should be asked is; Where is the demand for additional gates needed, Domestic, International or both?
It's common knowledge that the Lynx, old Sky Chef and Burlington freight (where Chicago Police are located) buildings around T5 are finally scheduled for Demo. Could this be tied into the article, perhaps.
It's known the goal is to have 4 A380 gates at ORD, so is a larger facility built to handle them that's tied to T5 one of the six? The ULLC and LLC's want to grow capacity and can't given the current location the 4 are located in. Given they operate off 6 gates currently do you split them off?
Then we have AA/UA which internationally will eventually replacing 767's with 787's and A350's capacity that currently couldn't be handled that T5. Do they both invest in something they can use?
Food for thought...

I wonder why they don't use those two large unused lots just northeast of Lots B & C as cell phone lots. They are directly off the return to the arrivals. If they really want to reduce congestion in the arrival area, designate a cell phone lot that people will actually use since they pass it everytime they circle around. I guarantee you that the overly aggressive dumb ass rent-a-cops wouldn't need to be such a-holes either. A win-win for everyone involved!

Flew out of ORD T3 on Friday morning, are the security lines normally that bad between 6am and 8am? I've only flown out midday or at night in recent years and lines were much shorter.
