Some more information from a local source :

Airport rated 5th best in world
Shanghai Daily
Feb. 1, 2011

SHANGHAI Pudong International Airport was rated one of the world's top airports by passengers last year, the Shanghai Airport Authority said yesterday.

A customer satisfaction survey by the Airport Council International ranked Pudong fifth among 154 global airports, up from 19th in 2009. Beijing Capital International Airport was in fourth position. Shanghai airport officials said they were happy to see that their efforts had been recognized by passengers and promised that facilities were still being improved.

Pudong airport, the city's main gateway for international flights, ranked 63rd in 2007 when it joined the ACI.

The survey, the global airport customer service benchmark and the key performance indicator of airports' service, found customers were impressed by the waiting areas and toilet facilities at Pudong. Other areas, such as the traffic to downtown, are still viewed as lagging behind and in need of improvement.

Of 33 service-related categories that customers commented on, Pudong was ranked among the top 10 in 11 of them last year, airport officials said.

The airport will continue to improve other categories, including security checks and entry and exit handling speed, the officials said.

Pudong airport was already one of the busiest airports in the world, said Hu Zhihong, deputy general manager with Shanghai Airport Authority, and passenger turnover was growing. Pudong handled more than 40 million passengers last year, nearly 30 percent more than 2009, one of the fastest growing airports in the Aisan-Pacific region.

A third terminal may be built at Pudong airport to handle growing number of travelers. And a fourth runway is on the way and due to be completed by around 2013.

The city's other airport, Hongqiao International, failed to make the top 10 but airport officials said that in a survey last year, it had ranked 19th, after opening a second terminal and improving restaurants and lowering food prices. In 2009, the airport had failed to make the top 100.

When I was at the Shanghai Urban Planning Exhibition Center las summer, there were no plans of an fifth runway. About those needles, the ceiling is high enough I think, I didn't feel such a claustrophobic. I hope that new terminal will take shape quickly!

Third Pudong terminal on the cards
21 January 2011
Shanghai Daily

A THIRD terminal may be built at Shanghai's Pudong International Airport to handle the increasing number of air travelers, an airport official said yesterday.

But a fourth runway is definitely on the way and should be completed by around 2013, Hu Zhigong, deputy general manager with Shanghai Airport Authority, said.

Pudong airport was already "one of the busiest airports around the world," he said, and passenger turnover is growing. But he did not give a date for any new terminal.

The Shanghai government said earlier in its plan for the next five years that a fourth and a fifth runway in Pudong were being planned.

Pudong airport handled more than 40 million passengers last year, nearly 30 percent more than 2009.

Meanwhile, the first airport terminal outside Shanghai in the Yangtze River Delta region opened yesterday. Air travelers from Jiangsu Province taking flights from Pudong airport can use the terminal in Jiangsu's Kunshan City.

According to this news piece, the fifth runway is currently under construction, it will be a dedicated runway for Comac.

据新华社上海2月1日电 (记者陆文军)国产大飞机早日翱翔蓝天,是几代中国人的梦想。日前,随着上海浦东机场外侧滩涂促淤圈围工程4个围堰龙口全部顺利合龙,未来中国商飞C919国产大飞机的试飞专用跑道将渐渐从东海上“升起”,预计于2014年底正式投入使用,为实施大飞机重大国家战略奠定了坚实基础。
  国产大飞机试飞专用跑道位于浦东机场最靠东海部位,向海上延伸两公里,需经填海、促淤、吹砂、造陆等过程,从东海上“生长”出一条高规格的试飞专用跑道,该跑道也将是浦东机场第五跑道。
  据介绍,浦东机场第五跑道促淤圈围工程涉及岸线长达13.69公里,最宽处向水中延伸2.43公里,总吹填量近3000万立方米,在长江口一片汪洋中,人工造出土地面积2万亩。
  据了解,龙口合龙是国产大飞机专用试飞跑道工程的首个关键节点,今年内还将向度汛断面和机场跑道吹填两大节点迈进,夯实中国大飞机翱翔蓝天的坚实基础。

Any statements about the design? Or if it will be a satellite?

Utter nonsense. Transited there twice in the last year...

1. No transit channel--you have to clear immigration and customs, go up to the departures hall, and immigrations, customs yet again...

2. Ripoff prices for food and drink, and the quality is low.

3. Support staff speak little English compared to SIN or HKG or ICN.

4. The typical Chinese "fraying at the edges" infrastructure problems--water stains here, abandoned and padlocked lounge there, interior demolition work over here...
