I cant imagine a location served by all of those eastern hubs and NOT ATL. So pane 1, row 2 with its six parallel concourses has to be then-ATL.

Yeah, I've changed my mind on ATL, given the PHL weirdness, and the hint that all airports are domestic, how many others are there with that many concourses laid out in that pattern... the images are probably a cross section at some level where the shapes aren't exactly what we think of.

I also agree now about ATL. It's similar enough that it doesn't seem possible for another airport layout to be even more similar.

After a bit of trial and error searching maps, I still can't come up with which airport matches the "home" one. Maybe it's IND subject to the "ATL phenomenon", but it's so obviously missing the spurs at the bottom of the concourses, and I just can't imagine rendering the main terminal that way.

Here's a map of the nominally confirmed locations:


Seems like it must be in eastern time zone; maybe someone else can have a bright idea about where.

Correct, though already outdated.

Ah, feel silly overlooking that first one once I started searching for airport maps. I thought DAY was the first one I checked, after looking at the constellation of others, but I guess I spaced out somehow! (Not my day, if you will. )

AVL?

Is it cheating if I checked every airport that the AA N262NN has been to lately?
