LAX T6 Construction Alert

FYI
LAWA has filed environmental documents for a T6 renovation with a possible start date as soon as March 2020 and lasting for 36 months.

https://www.lawa.org/en/lawa-our-lax...vation-project

Hightlights most pertain to AS Flyers
2 added gates 63A and 64A. Acheived by moving the bus gate to 66, adding to the width of the connector building and realigning the remaining gates to be more straight in.
18,000 sq ft of added space on the concourses level.
Last but certainly not least
3,000 sq ft. addition to the AS Lounge, 2 new lounge access elevators and if I am reading the document correctly a lounge reception area on the concourse level.

I really doubt those gates are for AS or that they even need them. They already have a lot of gate space that is often sitting vacant.

Good grief. They have done two renovations on T6 in the last 10 years.

you wouldn’t know. T6 feels dated. It’s dark and just feels drab and dirty. Any improvement is welcomed from me.

The only thing I can remember is taking out the solid wall of the old Continental President's Club and replacing the club with an "open" restaurant. Allowing the light from the opposite (windowed) wall into the concourse really helped with the dark feel of T6, but it still has a ways to go. I'm sure there have been other minor improvements, but to the best of my knowledge, T6 has not ever had a major remodel that the other terminals have had or are scheduled to have (DL's T2 & T3). I'm referring more to the concourse than the ticketing area.

I don't think this is a major overhaul either ... just doing this terminal a little bit at a time

LAWA is adding capacity where it can in many terminals at LAX. You never know how airlines might be shuffled around at LAX in the future. Presumably not AS itself, but who it "cohabitates" with at T6 could certainly change. Plus, of course, which gates AS uses and which gates are reserved for other airlines at T6 could also change.

They are definitely all for Alaska... they want to reduce their need for the remote pad.

Air Canada gets preferential on 1 gate (meaning they "control" it), shared preferential with AS on another. Then 2 full common-use gates under control of the T6 Consortia (which, is pretty much ran by Alaska). So that puts AS at 11 gates under its preferential use.
