Looks like Chicago is getting a jump start....

If we're lucky, DFW will get out ahead of all/most other US superhubs to update our air service infrastructure.

In the airline industry, having domestic and international airlines in the same terminal is known as a "global alliance hub," Evans said, pointing to London's Heathrow Airport and Tokyo's Narita International Airport as the standard. O'Hare would become the first such global alliance hub in the U.S., Evans said.

This is about the least likely thing that could happen, but it's sure fun for me to think about....

Delta stopped giving an NRA discount; in retaliation, the Georgia Lt. Govenor threatened to take away a fuel tax rebate gifted to Delta. So now, of course it's politics!, places are offering themselves to Delta as a new home.

Now, neither of the North Texas airlines had an NRA discount. That's nothing to do with any of this, but I'm just saying it. The deal is Delta moves it's HQ to Dallas, and in a shocker to the rest of the world, commits at least two thirds of its Atlanta flights to DFW with the build out of three new domestic terminals and one new international terminal. The move makes DFW the foremost global alliance hub in the world with Skyteam and Oneworld.

It seems like this mixture of international and domestic in the same space is something DFW will be able to accommodate easily considering they are planning further major changes at our older terminals. The new terminal they are discussing could integrate these things and move that project further along faster to be competitive and affect the design plans for the complete replacement of the older terminals they have also been discussing lately.

DFW already mixes international and domestic in the same space (Terminal D). There is nothing particularly revolutionary about what is being proposed for O'Hare.

American Airlines is adding service to Oaxaca, Mexico from Dallas.

Has anyone heard any peeps on the new DFW long term plan? The more I think about it, the more I am in favor of planning for an eventual brand new centralized terminal on the south side of the current airport property, shutting down International Parkway.

I'm envisioning a world class facility built on the south end of the airport property, with a large central check in and security area, leading to a shopping/dining/hotel complex area with 4 or 5 massive concourses fanning out from there, with about 200-250 gates and rapid people movers connecting them. Terminal D and existing parking garages could be connected to the main domestic terminal by Skylink (separate sterile and non-sterile lines) and continued to be used, connecting to the central check-in/security area. Eventually, a new international terminal could be built midfield or on the north side, again connected by train to the domestic area.

It would simplify and strengthen the AA hub and make for a better experience for both O&D and connecting passengers. Expensive, but it would be a step forward in keeping DFW a superhub and expanding it's dominance.

From another forum -

American is paying to renovate the E Satelite and will move flights out there. That’ll make for a long connection out there but cool to see that those gates will stay utilized.

The airport is looking into fluctuated pricing for terminal parking, a-la the express lane toll structure that LBJ Freeway now has. It hasn't been decided what range the prices will be.

Considering how far out and inconvenient it can be to park at The Parking Spot locations or Park n Fly, I would be willing to park at the terminal for a couple bucks more. I'm tipping the drivers a couple bucks each way, so it's not like I'll be paying more to begin with. Love Field has terminal parking at $13 and $17 and have no problem filling them up.
