Good article about Loganís management. Nice change from all the previous bad press concerning passenger wait times at customs/immigration at Terminal E.

Re: Logan Airport Capital Projects

I liked that article and learned some things about Massport I hadn't known. To date (knock on wood) I've never experienced a meltdown, or even an operational delay, at Logan anywhere near as bad as I have in NY airports, O'Hare, or (worst of all) Heathrow. I'd always assumed that it was a function of being a smaller airport, but looks like active and engaged management plays a large role.

Re: Logan Airport Capital Projects

Has anyone see any of the Terminal B construction up close? Is it progressing along?

Re: Logan Airport Capital Projects

Facilities discussion begins on 152, with the first-ever public renderings of Terminal B addition. (what better time than when the project's nearly complete?) One interesting thing: AA will no longer have a 777-capable gate in B, which means they either will be sending transatlantic departures to E or will be fully outsourcing them to BA, Iberia, et al.

Great hall opens in the first week of September. AA will move all ops by January.

First slide also has the selected design for Terminal E visible as a footprint, but still no APM.

AA hasn't flown transatlantic from Boston for at least four years* and by the end they were down to two daily 757s to Heathrow.

* Forgot about the seasonal Paris flights, also a 757.

Fair enough. I haven't flown transatlantic from Boston in longer

Re: Logan Airport Capital Projects

One thing that stood out on the "who pays for what" page is the $20m American is putting into the Admirals Club. Seems high for a renovation.

Re: Logan Airport Capital Projects

I could be wrong here, but on Slide 171 you can see the bottom of the AA neon logo sign. Is there already a duplicate there, or are they moving the one from the other side?

Re: Logan Airport Capital Projects

That looks pretty fantastic, especially considering how the terminal currently looks.
