I agree. Some parts are way too narrow. Not dangerously narrow but still not wide enough for an international hub.

6 years...

It's among Austria's biggest construction scandals. Costs doubled, scheduled opening date just before the Euros 2008, construction stop in 2009 due to legal reasons for over a year and so on...

I think some politics were involved. I am sure it had to do something with the future of OS. Btw when was that old terminal finished? 1980s?

Nope, mainly horrible planing, controlling and project execution. According to the Rechnunghof (Court of Audit), VIE's former executives (they've all been dismissed after that) waited way too long to inform the supervisory board about the cost explosions. Apparently criminal law and law on stock companies was violated therefore State's Attorney is investigating for over a year already with house searches and so on... pretty sure the former executives and some construction companies will face a criminal charge soon.

Old terminal? There have already been 3 before Check-In 3 went into operation. Check-In 1 (1992), Check-In 1a (2005) and Check-In 2 (1960).

Does any one know when the new Observation Deck will open? Or was it just by chance that it was closed when I went there a bit more than a week ago?
