Once you get to the terminal (much like connecting from N to D by train), do you use then use a bus to the aircraft rather than a jetway to embark/debark the flying craft? This is the problem I have with the new D gates.

This is accurate. Explored both areas today for the first time. Was hoping to discover "snooze friendly" benches in the D bus annex- there really weren't. Imagine this area should be quiet overnight.

Note: the train station C is still down. And both down escalators were not functioning tonight from the N gates. Down to 1 functional up escalator. So you will be using the D station.

Will try to get some pics on some time tonight or tomorow. Very modern- high ceilings.

AS BR folks are saying "May or June" for an opening of the new lounge... we'll see.

Is that carpet under the chairs in the first picture? I saw that on the video and thought it was an unfinished floor... Like it was leveled and smoothed before whatever top layer was going to be placed.
