DY is moreover a leisure carrier. LC would be bare bones.

Did you mean Ryanair as FR? And by the way, how would you classify Jet2 since it's coming to Toronto? I sense that Ryanair might not be able to launch long haul flights (even though there have been reports already on it) because it can be prohibitively expensive to operate long flights (e.g. SFO to London) that require larger aircraft and longer turnaround times than 25 minutes... I mean, Mike O'Leary might be wishful thinking on that matter, but doing it will hurt his bottom line significantly.

Some images I took from Oakland International Airport's Terminal 2 from last night... from my Flickr collection.

All right... I've opened a new thread that will focus on localized news developments and experiences governing San Francisco Bay Area airports (and a little bonus in store as well): read all about it here. I'm considering consolidating this thread with the one I have under the San Francisco Bay Area forums, but, I'm open to keeping this thread as well to lessen confusion and use the new thread to report news on new flights and services...

Please keep this thread alive here!

Hi fieldsofdreams,
thanks for creating the new thread, but please keep this one alive here!

As you can perhaps see from my handle, I will always call on the worldwide airport thread first to scan worldwide developments. Then, I will go to the "national" threads to get more in-depth information or more images.
Examples: Mumbai airport new terminal, opening later this month - I learned about it here, but found tons more pictures in the India infrastructure forum;
Singapore Changi Project Jewel and new Terminal 4 - available in more depth in the Singapore forums.
And so on...

Just my two Eurocents...

Ah ok... So how would you like this setup:

• Keep this thread for general updates on the airports
• Use the thread I created on a regional forum for localized and more detailed developments

Would that work for you?

that would be perfect for me

By the way, here's a general overview of what's been happening with Terminal 2 - and what will be happening with Terminal 1, whenever they get started on that: http://www.wtsinternational.org/asse...022311_SFO.pdf

If anyone's interested in looking at a "traditional" book, "Design for Aviation" by Gensler (the firm that designed the T2 renovation) has a 12-page section on T2 with a lot of nice photos.

Also, looking forward to tons of pics of the new Boarding Area E (on either thread...) after the Community Day on Jan 25th!

FYI: Terminal T2 opened in April 2011.

As for Boarding Area E, here are some renderings.

The new T1 renovation should start in the 2014-15 time frame.

Ah yes, I went to the T2 reopening. And I'm looking forward to T3E already!

Not to mention: if you'd like more local updates about Bay Area airports, my thread provides additional information from the local media.

Before "BART to the (SFO) Airport" was completed, it was probably easier to get to downtown SF from Oakland on public transit (then "AirBART" busses).

New "people mover" aka "Oakland Airport Connector" (it connects BART to the terminals).

Yes, the Airport Connector will go a long way in improving connection to BART. Hopefully more airlines will add service to OAK to alleviate the strains of SFO.
