the HK Int'l airport is the "largest enclosed space" in the world.. i wonder if that means it's the largest terminal... ?? in that case is this Beijing airport gonna surpass HK?

Also, is there gonna b a subway within the airport? coz the one in HK is so big they do!

It's a must for such large airport to have a commuter train, especially when there's a sattlelite terminal. In this case, Beijing has at least 2 sattlelite buildings(from the design) so it's so certain they will have it.
The only large airport I can think of that there's no need for such train is the new Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport, because of its design layout(grid) makes it easy and shorter to get from point A to B. Therefor there's no need for such commuter train but automated walkways are enough. Of course there's such a rail link between the 1st and the 2nd future terminal, it's been planned and partially constructed.

Actually, it may not be extended under the same roof. For example, the new T3 airport is too long, and must be sectioned off so planes can cross over.
"SOM has carried out two interrelated planning studies for Hong Kong International Airport. The first, the Terminal 2 Study, examined the capacity of the recently-opened Terminal 1, proposed enhancements for increasing its capacity, and evaluated options for expanding the Terminal and for siting a second major terminal, Terminal 2. The T2 study evaluated the existing terminal's capacity to accommodate growing passenger activity and developed four terminal expansion options for increasing the passenger processing capacity to meet that which the existing two-runway system could ultimately serve."-http://www.som.com/main.cfm

And I do hope that they get rid of the original terminals b/c calling the largest airport "terminal 3" instead of a grander name "Beijing Cap. Intl" is kinda 'bad'.

Where...

Where will the passengers that'd be using the Satellite Terminal or Terminal 2 enter. Would they still be using the same entrance as Terminal 1. Can someone be kind enough to enlighten me on this? Thanks in advance.

P.S.
If so, wouldn't you think that the entrance would be overburdened by the number of passengers vis a vis the number of gates as well as planes that it needs to serve?

the terminal is only one thing, another factor that could potentially deadlock the airport is its lack of runways.

Toronto Pearson has 5 runways. Beijing has 2. The amount of time that an aircraft must wait in line for take off is pathetic.

I'd say...

Hong Kong International Airport will in the coming years become very congested because of the fact that it sits in a mere 1,200 hectares of reclaimed land.

Yeah, it is true that waiting time for take-off is a bitch! I mean, since HKIA is not only a passenger superhub but a cargo hub as well...it seriously needs to add a thrid parallel runway that could served mainly for cargo operations. Don't you think?
