That timeline makes sense with the T3 modernization that's supposed to wrap up in 2018. Here's a video of the work underway, if anyone hasn't seen it:

This is excellent news. While there is a Priority Pass option, it's inaccessible due to security separation of terminals. It has been brought up in other threads that it's peculiar there's no Sky Club at PHX. It's a market served by widebody service to hubs (DTW, MSP), many red-eye flights (ATL, DTW, MSP?, and seasonally JFK), and international flights marketed as "direct" (Manchester via JFK).

Not peculiar at all. Delta closed the Crown Room Club in Phoenix in 2008 as part of the great Crown Room Club massacre.

So 10 years later, it will emerge from the ashes so to speak.

What widebody service to DTW and MSP? Certainly none on today's schedule.

The only widebody I can find on the schedule is Nov-March from ATL, x1 daily 330 service, as I imagine demand for PHX is far greater in the winter than in August!

But not even wide-body service from MSP for snowbirds around X-Mas.

I can't speak to the upcoming schedule, but in winters past it has been common for MSP-PHX to see domestic 763s and even A333s in key time channels.

I didn't look at every single day, but I spot checked the days I thought it would be most likely to see a wide-body from MSP. Right around Thanksgiving, X-mas Eve Eve, a few Fridays in Feb/March, but nadda this year.

Frequency went up from 5 today to 7 most of the winter and there is some upgauging a couple of the flights MD90's and 737's to more 757's...with a few MD90's/739's mixed in.

But at least on the day's I check no WB's from MSP/PHX this winter

It's accessible, however you have to clear security twice is the problem.

Currently T3 at PHX sucks IMO. After security there is one option for a sit down meal with an adult beverage option sucks...The Tex-mex menu isn't bad...but to have 1 sit down place...really. Can't wait for the expansion. SC opened in DEN earlier and now PHX down the road. I'm liking this cause it fits into my travels.

I've flown redeye's PHX-MSP on 763s many times. I believe in the winter/early spring.
