What airports in US still have airline logos on jetways?

I realize it is a great source of revenue to allow HSBC or some other company to advertise on jetways but I think it is extremely tacky and preferred when most jetways had the airline logo on them. The airport logos don't bother me as much, but still prefer the airline logo over that when they are not CUTE gates. I am not even sure when they first began to disappear in the US. I don't travel much anymore I am hoping there are some airports out there that still have an airline name on jetways.

In the U.S., at least, advertisements from companies like HSBC seem to be the exception, rather than the rule. While you see the HSBC ads at both JFK & EWR, LGA still has airline logos on jetways. If memory serves, all the Delta hubs in the U.S. apart from JFK have DL's logo on DL's gates.

HSBC is on the verge of collapse if they don't cut costs and change strategies. So you might not see those much longer.

Hyperbole much? HSBC is nowhere near collapse, it's profitable to the tune of US$7.1 billion (yes, billion with a B) in 2016.

Now that's a big drop in profit from 2015 and there are concerns about future growth so the share price--which had run up--is getting corrected. But that's not a collapse!

I want to present a radically different opinion- I don't like either advertiser logos or airline logos on jetways. Why can we not have more transparent jetways so I can actually see the plane I am boarding! I love that most new airports in Asia at least are going for transparent jetways.

I've asked that question ad nauseum. Most answers relate to either cost or security.

I get how it is cost-prohibitive but I wonder how a glass jet bridge would cause a security issue that a 'regular' one with windows wouldn't. Almost all new airports/terminals I've been to all have glass jet bridges anyway, so I bet it's mostly about costs.

I believe most airports still do, in the USA at least. One exception is MIA


By the way, as far as DL goes. I believe every time they changed liveries, they changed the logo on the jetway. I have not yet seen the new AA logo on a jetway.


Speaking of jetway....is that what it is called? I thought that was a company name.

This is totally off-topic, but I'd never trust what a bank actually lists as its operating profits as an accurate indicator of its financial health. There are infinite ways to mask actual cashflow problems with accounting tricks, and nobody has better access to the financing and deal flows necessary to do that than a company with a major in-house investment bank.

I know SHV still has them for Delta. And it's a pretty small operation there. On the flip side, Southwest at GSP does not have jetway signage.

Delta's parade at MSP ensures that all concourses barring Concourse E (UA/AA/Spirit/Frontier) and Concourse H (Terminal 2) have signs on the jet bridges...

Image

ORD is a bit of mix. While terminal 1 (United) has them...
Image
Image

The United parts of Terminal 2 have them, too...
Image

Terminal 3 (American) does not have them any longer....

In Canada, they're pretty much all gone as all airports are now CUTE. YWG's old terminal was probably the last of them. Lots of airport authority logos on jetways though + HSBC at the big airports.

CLT has a lot of jetways which say Charlotte Douglas International Airport, including concourse E which is technically CUTE I guess yet all American Eagle.

So if CLT does for sure, what is on concourse B and C, no way it says US Airways still, so if not the new AA logo, what else could it be?

Most of the gates in HSV are glass bridges. I far prefer them to the cargo container bridges.

It may be hyperbole it say HSBC are on the "verge of collapse", but HSBC are in a very bad financial position right now. The situation is in fact quite dire.

I would not care one bit about sponsored logos.

In fact, I would rather see sponsor logos on jet bridges than have to pay higher fees.

All for it, especially on common use gates.

If the airline owns the gates... then by all means let them do as they please.

This is slightly off topic, but I remember as a kid at DL's B-gates at SEA they had posters of their destinations up along the jetways and it was always fun seeing the destination posters before we left for ATL (or DFW back when that was a thing). I really like the specific airline branding at the gates where they make the gate area and the jetway an extension of their brand. I'd like to see more of that, but I suppose that's falling out of fashion. Kind of surprises me actually when branding and controlling the experience is so crucial to airlines these days, you would think it would go the other way.

United has them on most, if not all gates at the B concourse in DEN. They say "Welcome to DEN" under the UA logo. Never seen that anywhere else UA has gate logos.

.

Back in the 1970s and 1980s, they really branded their gate areas, they choose the carpet sometimes (they may have even carpeted the walls IIRC), their name and logo were on the walls, destination posters. I especially remember this with EA and DL, whose walls were usually navy blue. Even the inside of the jetways they would choose the carpet and color of the sidewalls. I believe UA jetways had red carpet. Eastern even had some walls displaying all their destinations, this started as an airline timetable cover in 1974 but continued into the 1980s.

The only branding now seems to be at the ticket counter, and for many international terminals, it is nothing more than a video screen that can change.

In the US, fire codes have prevented their use. However they are being gradually lifted.

IIRC my last trip through CLT over XMas the B&C gates had the new AA branding on them. DL also has its logo on its gates in A.

Yes "Jetway" is a trademark name (of FMC Jetway Systems, now JBT AeroTech), ala Xerox, Kleenex, Band-Aid, etc.

As a Companion Pass flyer, I cannot recall seeing a Southwest station without logos on the jet bridges - very much the case at my home airport of BWI. Delta has branding on just about everything - certainly at BWI and in ATL and SLC (two of my more recent stops).

Up until the bankruptcy and merger, NW had signs with "Welcome to X" on the inside of many outstation jet bridges. I remember the ones at MKE said "Welcome to Milwaukee County," which I always found weird.

Wisconsin Airports are largely owned by the county rather than the city they serve. MSN is Dane County Regional, ATW is Outagamie Regional though I've always seen Madison or Appleton on the FIS.

It's funny you mention this, I have a really vague memory of flying TWA in the late 1990s out of SEA and they had the last two A-gates (before the expansion and remodel) which (I have since been informed) was a former hangar that had been added on to the original A-gates and they had super high ceilings and red carpets and walls, similar to their JFK terminal, and it seemed like the most committed branding exercise I've ever seen at SEA. I think it was all the red which made it so different.

I can't find any pictures of it, but I remember it very distinctly because we used to fly USAir quite a bit, also from the A-gates, and you'd go from this pre/early-jet age low-ceilinged, flourescently-lit, linoleum-floored terminal into this giant (I suppose hangar-sized) room that was totally red, and carpeted and had big windows that was practically empty. It was odd, but interesting at the same time.

I also remember almost every DL gate in any airport you went to had the same blue (leather?) airport chair rows with the Delta delta logo in the middle of the backrest.

I was always excited to see the different jetbridge logos at SEA when I was a kid, but in the age of consolidation, it's just not as fun when fewer domestic airlines are around and I don't really mourn their disappearance. A huge row of AS or DL tails make the same point.

All D jetways in CLT have the CLT Airport logo on them, as they were all CUTE. After the AA/US merger, AA added their own podiums with their logos onto some of the gates. I'm assuming they picked up leases on them?

I know D12 is still CUTE. LH and AA jointly use it.

At TTN (Trenton, NJ). The boarding ramps they use (no jetways) say Frontier on them. Heres a pic of the ingurual Allegiant flight using a boarding ramp that says Frontier on it.
