at iad n the flight usually leaves out of like D5 or a c gate which is not decorated (but the gate at the airport) and Usually arrives at gate D30

The end of D where british airways use to fly out of is what is turned into the north pole and that entire area is decorated as the north pole. United goes all out of this at IAD it is really nice i have seen it a couple of times

On the monitor it says time difference 8 hours ahead. Wouldn't the exact north pole be in all time zones so no difference?

Not sure what's wrong, but I simply don't know how to fix it.

Last year, it was right across from one of the RCCs, maybe the D8 one. It looked really cool, and the flight showed up on all the departure monitors, etc. I did a double-take when studying the monitors in the RCC and seeing "North Pole" listed among the other destinations.

I saw the North Pole flight yesterday (12/14) at Newark. It was at gate C120. I had to stop for second to make sure I read it correctly

Some of the Arizona State University Sun Devils football players and cheerleaders were on hand for the PHX fantasy flight. They used Gates C and D which used to be UAX/occasional mainline but I believe have now been ceded to Great Lakes and it appears it worked quite well.

I jokingly commented "Using Pre-Merger Continental Aircraft? FOR SHAME!" and someone called me a jerk
