Hello, my name Sean. I’m deaf.  I enjoy to read on Unbanplanet. I will post more pics later.  British Airways Dreamliner Boeing 787-9 landed last Sunday evening.  ( 2/L  7,704 feet long runway) 

Airplane photos aren't really my cup of tea either, but may I humbly request we tone down the dramaticism a touch?  This is simply a case of a kind, sincere man who wants to share his photography with

Whoop! There it is...  Nashville to London.  http://www.tennessean.com/story/money/2017/08/03/nashville-airport-direct-flight-london/538475001/ British Airways!

Party Fowl officially announced to Concourse D and Chick-Fil-A to the A/B food court. Sounds like Party Fowl will be open first. Also the garage parking rates went up, it's up to $16 for 30 minutes up to 24 hours. Valet up to $20/day.

Concourse D definitely needs some food options so this is a welcome addition. With that said, I really hope my neighbor on the plane doesn't choose to go for Poultrygeist before boarding.

I read pre-Covid (at least it feels that long ago) that we were getting some additions elsewhere in the airport. Has anyone heard anything new on Five Daughters?

On that note, has anyone heard anything about the shake shack the airport is supposed to get?

What airlines will use this concourse

We don't know, yet. The type of aircraft, closing Concourse A, and other factors will drive those decisions

Anyone know what the transportation options will be to it?

Shuttle busses

"The new facility will be built adjacent to the existing Concourse C and will serve narrow-body and regional aircraft."

I have to wonder if American is getting pushed out here, but United+a ULCC or two makes the most sense as United will lose their physical gates.

This would be a lot cooler if there was a pedestrian tunnel to it.

That is a future possibility, but it is not possible now due to time constraints

To be a downer on this new satellite concourse, I think using shuttle buses to go back and forth will not be popular with travelers. I never fly without seeing numerous late arrivers rushing to their gates. I also can see arriving passengers, who just want to get an Uber and leave, frustrated at standing around waiting for the next shuttle, not to mention those connecting passengers arriving on delayed flights. I’m sure all will be perfect but the pessimist in me persists.

Huge lulz about the food points. MNAA can be as mad as they want about Fraport but who decided to shut down the C food court for renovations? Fraport or them? It's almost as if they hired the people who were responsible for the new Dillard's wing at Green Hills to handle this part of BNA Vision.

I think tearing the sheetrock down around some of the coming soon places so people knew something was almost ready would help. Let people see kitchen equipment being installed, or at least post some progress report photos online.

Had our first experience at BNA since February and now I fully understand what you guys are talking about with the food in C/D. Someone really screwed that up. I saw some extremely frustrated people. This needs to be better communicated so people can prepare ahead of time. The only thing that saved us was me seeing chatter on this forum and deciding we should find something to eat ahead of time just in case.

It’s bad enough that I just heard someone talking about it at an MDW bar top.

Fraport is late getting construction started and is now up against a May 31st deadline. So, it has became an all at once, all out race to the finish

ALL SEVEN vendors that had previously signed leases for Concourse D backed out, due to the pandemic. ALL SEVEN. So, Fraport has certainly had their own challenges in addition to their own issues. Only 8 of 52 vendors remained open during the pandemic. Fraport and the pandemic couldn't have had worse timing plus passenger numbers are recovering 2x faster than the most optimistic projections

3 shifts, working around the clock, was used to get 8th and Roast open. Fraport has not taken any additional steps to speed up the current construction. Fraport faces steep penalties if the May 31st date is missed

Sounds to me like there's opportunity for food service companies at BNA!  Is that really the case?  What if a franchisee for (say) Chikfila or Zaxby's or even Mcdonalds was ready to step up to the plate... while  not "Nashville flavor" would they have a slot at the airport ready for them?
