    I guess hades installed some mighty cold air conditioning.

    I only wish Will Rogers would do something like that to improve air service and the second terminal.

    The new website rocks! If you click on "Airport Guide", (need Flash Player-latest version) you'll be able to see photos of the new gate areas, the mini-food court in the central terminal, the new security checkpoint and points in the west concourse. Looks like a 360 degree virtual tour's also in the works. I like the new high ceilings, and the ample glass all around, especially the tilted glass near the ceiling.

    All old and new press releases have been uploaded and they have the latest one as well, marking the start of America West Express service.

    We should all be sure to send Karen Carney a "thumbs up" email.



    I wish there were pictures of the departure curb and main terminal.

    Yes Malibu, but don't give her too much praise. Then she will slack off even more than before. The website isnt our huge victory. Getting them to address the new east concourse is what really needs to happen. We need to continue to pressure them to strive for more progress.

    Yeah it looks good, much better than TIA's website. This is a good start, like the expansion and renovation. NOW IT JUST NEEDS TO BE FINISHED!!!

  12. Default Re: New Will Rogers Airport website is up!!!

    In today's article in the Norman Transcript, there is mention about the East Concourse being delayed, but the airport trust is watching to see what happens.

    I can see the concourse being built before 2008, but that's just my opinion.

    I definitely will send a thank you, it's a small thing to express appreciation but it will show that we are grateful and have noticed the changes and hard work that went into it.

    Bad News for hopes of expanding OKC's terminal. This is what OKC Business is bragging about so I'm sure our "city leaders" and "airport trust" will make it sound like good news:

    Airport debuts high-speed airport train system
    Posted: Friday, May 20, 2005
    Oklahoma City residents and business people often have to fly into and out of Dallas for their leisure and corporate traveling. And, today, the Dallas-Ft.Worth Airport debuted a device that airport officials believe will make Oklahomans' and others' experience at the airport more efficient and enjoyable.

    The airport's Skylink, just unveiled today, will be the world's largest high-speed airport train with a fleet of 64 cars with the capacity to handle more than 5,000 passengers per hour, per direction.

    Skylink is comprised of eight stations in four existing DFW terminals and two stations in the new, International Terminal D.

    Traveling in both directions from each terminal at speeds up to 35 miles per hour, Skylink will shrink connecting time for the 65 percent of DFW's passengers who are making connections. Using Skylink, DFW officials said, passengers should experience trips of no longer than 9 minutes between the two farthest stations.

    Corgan Associates Inc., which has offices in Dallas, New York, Miami and Phoenix, headed up the project for DFW. As well, officials said the firms of Lea + Elliott, Kellogg, Brown and Root Evan Evans also collaborated on the project.

    By design, Skylink stations draw people in and upward, helping move them in the directions they need to go, officials said. Skylink stations in existing terminals are also designed to create two new anchor elements in each terminal as well as a unifying, external ribbon structure. The two new stations in Terminal D are not visible from the exterior, but are instead uniquely integral to the new building with the guideway constructed inside the terminal, the officials said.

    Skylink stations' top-of-the-terminal placement should also provide entertainment. Riding Skylink, passengers will travel around the noses of arriving and departing planes, enjoying a birds-eye view of active airline operations beneath them, airport officials said.

    As a child, I rode the existing tram at DFW. As a young adult, I went round and round while I waited for my connecting flight. As a business traveller, I deliberately scheduled long layovers to ride some more betwixt the Admirals Club's amenities and Outlook breaks..

    Lure Southwest for backup and ancillary operations. BOOM!

    I remember vacationing with my family in DFW, and we went to the Airport and rode the Tram around for a couple of hours. It was so fun (a little nerdy and wierd, maybe)

    I am anxious to ride the new Skylink

    I actualyl got a chance to ride Skylink the first week it opened. It is a huge improvement over the old tram. The old tram only connected the American Airlines terminals......the Skylink connects every terminal at DFW. It's much brighter, quieter, and faster. You can get from one side of the airport to the other is just over 5 minutes. Also, it's nicer to see the lovely views of the airport, that you couldn't see from a tram, which was located below ground.

    Many major airports have these transports now. Orlando has something similar, as well as Jacksonville, Denver and many more.

    I would say when Will Rogers eventaully gets the south terminal we will have something too. Hopefully a subway.

    It all comes down to needs of the field layout. Orlando had the trams ever since McCoy AFB became the new Int'l airport there - they had no choice. With a centralized processing and claim area, with airside concourses...it is the only way to move people back and forth.

    However, if a new terminal is ever constructed in OKC (probably 10-20 years away before the need gets great enough)...the most to expect would be one of the underground elevator trams. This is similar to what Cincinnati has between concourse A & B, what Atlanta runs between theirs, etc. However, look at new terminal constructions like Detroit's World Gateway complex...a tram is not a sure bet. They have one in Concourse A there due to the length, but you only have moving walk ways underground between Concourse A and the B/C terminal.

    I would expect the same for anything in OKC...depending on the distance between terminals. Its just more cost effective and easier to install. Heck they could just forget the underground option all together and go to buses like Dallas to the satellite terminals, Cincinnati to Concourse C, and what Chicago Midway did for the satellite ramp for Chicago Express passengers.

    The Skylink is the only reason my wife and I made it to our connecting flight to enjoy our honeymoon on time. God bless the Skylink.

    Definitely long overdue. Concourse is a good company, just slow at deployments. Unfortunately OKC is ranked to high to get Opti-Fi in, otherwise we would have seen Wi-Fi here a long time ago.

    At least it isn't T-Mobile which does DFW...their service is terrible.

    Good news, but it should be free, IMO.

    Why? Find an airport where it is free, and they'll typically be small airports where they offer it in just a few spots.

    Keep in mind that Concourse, Opti-Fi, etc are all vendors...the airport isn't paying them to be there. They need to make money on their deployments, they aren't in the charity business.

    How do you expect them to pay for the gateways, access points, bandwidth, etc? Nothing in life is free. Get over it. People have become way to spoiled with free Wi-Fi it is annoying. Airports aren't like Starbucks or IHOP...they need more infrastructure than one access point and a cable or DSL line.
