How Many bere have siffered a flight in or Out of SLC?

Yes, the terminal building is New, Modern, light, the high ceiling seems to approach flight level and/or the heavens that Mormons aspire to…

But SLC Airport has been seriously panned for the distance between TSA & the gates ‘3000 steps’…

What were they Thinking?

I used to work there. I had no problem with it.

Did you used to work there before the new Concourse B was opened? If so, you have no idea...

I’ve had countless layovers there over the years, but never been through security.
I always get a “weird” vibe, but perhaps it’s only because I know I’m in SLC.

The Paris CDG airport is worse. It seems that gates are as far apart as possible if you have a connecting flight so that you have to run (you won't make it if you walk) about a mile (no joke) to make it to the next flight before it leaves without you. I think the French do it on purpose, LOL

Yes, CDG is horrible. Even with shuttles. I haven’t flown through there in at least a decade though, so it could have changed (for the better or worse).

It hasn't. Been through there several times over the past year, and it is still a nightmare. Also, the French don't believe in AC, so the terminal is like a sauna in the summer. So you get yourself all sweaty and stinky on your 20 mile hike to connect to your trans-Atlantic flight. I HATE CDG.

I'm surprised. I love CdG (which we call Roissy over here) - particularly after almost any of the UK airports - Heathrow, Gatwick and Manchester come to mind...

Somebody got a huge "reward" for the construction contract. That's what "they" were thinking. IMO.

the architect is to blame, contractors just build to the plans

In their defense, construction is far from finished, and there are moving walkways planned to eventually improve what now feels like a cross-country hike to Ogden.

I didn't see any construction happening when I was there just over a year ago, but moving sidewalks will be a welcome improvement if done right

Just returned from a weekend in SLC and witnessed the new airport for the first time.

This is nuts! Surely they aren't finished with this. Aren't they going to build a rail line to whisk those of us who arrive on Southwest to the parking garage in just minutes?

When we landed Friday night and had to get to the rental car location (not a lot of signs to help us) I thought we'd never get out of there! Insanity!

I think everyone knows that the SL Airport was seriously prayed over after the Q15 met, meditated and approved the original design and the current expansion and redesigns.

Nelson will be making a special announcement next week- a new temple at the Salt Lake Airport!

I usually fly charter to avoid big dumb airports. You haven’t lived until you have been stuck in Newark.

My understanding is that the planners believed that the future of flying is going to be on larger and larger jets. So they made the concourses much longer to accommodate the larger aircraft. Then something funny happened and airlines found that they needed smaller jets instead. Now it's miles and miles between services, etc, but no moving sidewalks or trams.

Is there a reason, other than money, that moving sidewalks can't be added to the terminals?
