  1. So the only thing that makes this building taller than Deloitte is the fact it's plopped atop more parking, right?
  2. All I know for certain is that C/D club will close - AGAIN - next year for a complete overhaul (I was told the space would be completely reconfigured and that showers would be added). Can we just stop for a minute and make note of the only reason the club closed this time is because it failed its fire safety inspection. The space was built in 1999...in an airport surrounded by airplanes and trucks and tugs that all use petroleum...WITHOUT A SPRINKLER SYSTEM!!! How does something like that occur? Seriously! It's also been hinted that once Delta moves into its new space, A concourse will get a small club. The airline's true pain point, the endless confusing cluster that is E, will still be without a club, relying only on the C/D space.
  3. You can't even open a bank account. The BofA Tower doesn't have a branch.
  4. 12-story apartment tower with retail sought for busy area just outside Plaza Midwood  Read more at: https://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/business/development/article261970235.html#storylink=cpy In a nutshell, Levine Properties is seeking to build a 12-story apartment tower in PM. The developer filed a rezoning application with the city on Friday. Plans call to take a roughly 1-acre site at the corner of The Plaza and Commonwealth Avenue and build 175 apartments to a maximum of 150 feet. Levine Properties is also seeking to include 12,000 square feet of ground-floor retail. It's Daniel Levine, so I guess we'll see vertical construction by 2055.
  5. From what I understand, the Berlin-based company is hyper sensitive to environmental concerns. It isn't demolishing the building because it can make a case for repurposing existing building infrastructure (concrete, steel, glass, etc).
  6. The crossfield taxiway and deicing pads are moving along quickly. I was out at the cargo complex today and steel is going in for the taxiway bridge. It was supposed to be completed by the end of the year, but I think it will more than likely be Q1 of 2023.
  7. The airline told crews that the reason the service was suspended was a combination of too few widebodies and slot issues at LHR. Don't use the slot, lose it. FRA isn't slot-controlled, so there's no worry about losing the route. The 777-200 in question will now fly MIA-LHR. CLT-FRA is scheduled to resume in the fall.
  8. Sadly the ATM made no difference, what with that change shortage and all...
  9. Hmmmm. I beg to differ. While I've always had decent service on foreign carriers, my Air France premium economy seat (A380) was a torture device and my intra-Europe coach seat had 29" pitch with no recline (A320), my BA biz class seat didn't lie flat (B777) and my BA intra-Europe flight (B737) featured no amenities that were free (had to buy a Diet Coke), my Lufthansa biz class seat was so hot I couldn't sleep and the airplane had no air vents (not to mention that the monitor was stationary and the only way to watch a film was to be in the upright position (A340). I'll take jetBlue any day of the week over any of them.
  10. I think you may be correct.
  11. Terminal is reopening in the next 30 minutes. Sad this is what it takes to get a remodel at the BK.
  12. People DO complain. Rarely does the airport care. I'm just glad I don't have to hear "Hi, I'm Vi Lyles, mayor of the City of Charlotte..." incessantly on the PA system anymore.
  13. It Element still a go? After some weed clearing in February, nothing else has happened.
