United to consolidate at EWR?

Fri Mar 20, 2020 1:44 pm

Has anyone else heard that United will be quickly leaving terminal A and consolidate at C? Thanks

They are still serving Terminal A bit the TSA checkpoint has closed to mitigate the spread of Covid-19. The checkpoint that closed was where the officer worked.

Wouldn’t surprise me if we start seeing this at all airports. Unused concourses are expensive to keep open when you consider utilities, empty concessions etc...
Welcome to Nothingburgers. May I take your order?

Will United be expanding their service in EWR after the new terminal 1 is built? Just wondering, because then there would be open slots.

If UA is temporarily cutting 70% of their flights, it would make sense during that time to put everything in C. I'd expect they would also cease using the FIS in Terminal B as well. Anything that saves a dollar right now will be looked at, and it costs money to be towing an empty plane from B to C when you don't necessarily have to right now.

According to a UAL EWR based pilot (take it for what it’s worth) he stated he heard “soon”

I’m also curious to see what Delta will be doing in ATL. And what the fallout will look like.

It's underway. UA has already closed check-in counters at Terminal A and pax are handled at C for now. I also think (don't quote me) but CBP at EWR will temporarily consolidate to Terminal B.

April is planned for 100 mainline and 93 UAX departures per day at EWR. That can absolutely be housed under one roof at Terminal C. If things ramp back up in June and beyond, UA can very easily scale back into Terminal A. But for now, it makes sense to consolidate at C to save costs.

The same will apply to basically any major hub...AA in DFW, CLT, MIA, PHL, LAX, PHX. DL in ATL, DTW, MSP, SLC, LAX, NYC (JFK & LGA). And so on. With this level of prolonged draw down, even the airports will look to cut expenses as will the vendors with no traffic, why have all the restaurants, etc open. I wonder if any of the projects in CLT, LGA & SLC for example will take a big hit? Delays at the least???

I think this is a bad idea. Consolidating everyone closer together seems to be counter-productive. If anything the gates should be spread out and/or randomized. Logistically challenging, yes.

We are talking about flights with 5, 10, 20 people on them.

You are talking about at most 200 flights per day at EWR not the usual 400+ flights a day. Also most of these flights if they are lucky will have at most 50 passengers onboard many will have substantially less than that so consolidating operations temporarily is the right move to make and it also saves the airline money.
