SEA C Concourse Train Station Reopened (1/23/2020)

Not strictly AS related but is there any update on the C concourse train station reopening? It was supposed to be "End of 2019". I know, I know, it is POS but still thought they would at least update the signage, much like they kept doing with the old N terminal temp Alaska Lounge.

When I went through SEA in late December, the window coverings in the C station had been removed. Still looked like there was work left to do, but it was mostly done. During the quick glimpse I got, the station looked pretty similar to how it looked last year when it closed. Not sure what they did down there.

Wasn't it originally supposed to be done in "November 2019?"

For the last few months sinage has indicated C stop was closed "through 2019." Did you notice if they updated it to, "through 2020?" lol Hopefully it will be updated to "opening (month)" soon.

When I was flying thru a few weeks ago, the lounge employees all seemed to think the opening was imminent. Apparently the major change was to increase the traffic flow pattern from the concourse down to the station.

Seatac airport customer service recently informed me that C station should reopen before March 31, 2020.

Well it is the P.O.S....

Wonder if the construction will improve the flow of traffic that much. Will be nice to have it back up ^

I've been kinda happy it's been closed... makes the train ride to/from N faster.

It sure does. It increases the frequency of trains by whatever amount of time it takes to stop at the 'C' gates. Instead of waiting 2 minutes, you wait 1:30 (or whatever the delta is).

A good friend of mine that works at AS told me the delay was because they are enlarging the boarding area and adding wider escalators. It was very small and cramped before the remodel. I hope it is done earlier, but we all know that the P.O.S. learned everything about construction from the Washington State D.O.T. What takes 1 month anywhere else takes 6 months in WA. Sort of like the schedule AS uses with their lounge upgrades and additions.

Be careful complaining about AS and their lounge updates; I leaped to AS from United; they debuted flashy POLARIS lounges shortly after the Carter administration, and they still haven't opened most of the damn things!

I think they had to get their permits from the Municipality of Anchorage as well.

I was hoping they made the escalators wider... they were wide enough for one IIRC, with carryon behind.

Thatís why it was imperative to get off the train first and be the first on the escalator. If you didnít want to walk up, you put earbuds in and didnít look back at the giant line that formed behind you.

I didn't wear earbuds, but sounds like my s.o.p.
