Consolidated Connection/logistics-Domestic/International at BOS (post move to TermB)

BOSTON, April 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- United Airlines and Massport today unveiled a new 10-gate concourse in Boston Logan International Airport's Terminal B that lets customers travel more quickly and efficiently while enjoying state-of-the-art amenities.

Scheduled to open April 30, the Terminal B concourse brings United's Boston operations together under one roof, offering greater convenience and consistency to the airline's customers.

The new space features several of the latest self-service technologies that will streamline the airport experience for seasoned travelers and enable United employees to spend more time with customers who need extra assistance. These modern features include self-tagging baggage kiosks, automated self-boarding gates and a new customer service center that allows passengers to resolve routine travel issues more easily.

United and Massport invested more than $170 million to build the 97,000-square-foot Terminal B concourse, which includes a new ticketing lobby, improved security screening checkpoints and a spacious United Club lounge for the airline's premium customers. Travelers will also enjoy the concourse's contemporary design and conveniences, highlighted by accessible in-seat power and a variety of comfortable seating choices.

I'm really looking forward to self-bag-tagging being universal.

Do we have any reports on the BOS edition of the self-boarding gates yet? Supposedly they enforce boarding order.

Heading back to Boston this summer - looking forward to seeing this!

Always liked the small UC there, and friendly UC personnel too..

Gate B25. Just came back from an event United hosted for elites to preview the terminal. Good looking terminal, and they put on a good event. I will try to post some pictures later.

Ditto! I had a great time. Best food on UA in a long time

There was a brand-new 737-900ER on display - it was just flown in from the Boeing factory in Seattle last night. The manager inside told me that as of the end of June, there will be no "dark" airplanes - every one will have at least Wifi, streaming entertainment, DirecTV, or traditional video/audio. We'll see...

Oh, and the United Club is really nice.

I can't get over the UC: what an astonishing change from the one in Terminal C! Makes me want to take a weekend jaunt somewhere.

Wonderful pictures of BOS terminal B!

Can we see airplane taking off?

Yes, great views of planes taking off/landing, both in the general area and the UC (the UC is just on top of the general area). I don't know which runway I was looking at... maybe 9/27?

The terminal is gorgeous as well as the club. I honestly would get a gate pass and use the club and snag a drink even though the booze is pretty much swill. Unobstructed runway views and one can definitely see planes taking off and landing. My one caveat would be there are no showers - which seems ridiculous for a brand new buildout and the redeye transcon flights but "management" only wants showers at the hubs.

It will be interesting to see how the self tagging and self boarding stations work in the upcoming months.

Did they end up opening the outdoor patio? I think they were still in discussions with MassPort / TSA as of a month or so ago.
