    This thread can die in a couple of months, but in the meantime, what are the odds of leaving/arriving from G?

    I've never seen this. It's always been the A side for me. I would imagine the only reason VX would be on the G side would be something wonky at their usual A gates.

    They have been using G gates from time to time when A is full.

    I would put the odds at less than 1%. I've flown them every 1.5-2 weeks for the last 3 years, and I've never seen it happen. But I *have* heard of it happening.

    I have heard of it and have seen one at a G gate - just wondering about my lounge options - "G" I could use the RCC. "A" I will probably head over to the CO PC, depending on how early I arrive.

    For the sake of others reading this, it's worth mentioning that the CO PC is in another terminal. Terminal A does suck in that there aren't any club options. DL would be a decent option, but they close at 5pm, as does AF. I guess the only possibility in T2 (when VX gets there) will be an AA lounge. Not of much use to those of us who rely on Priority Pass when we're flying VX.

    Even worse, the PC is going to close in the next few months. So, unless there is an airside connection between 2 and 3, the NCC* will be the only option.
