    United Airlines previewed its new Terminal B south concourse at George Bush Intercontinental Airport to Houston Mayor Annise Parker and other area civic and business leaders on April 15.

    According to a release, the new facility will open to limited flight operations over the next two weeks, with the first 15 gates planned to be fully operational by May 1. The airline will add 15 more gates by the end of the year.

    The $97-million south concourse is a new 225,000-square-foot facility dedicated to United Express regional flights. At nearly four times the size of the previous south concourse, the new space will provide a better customer experience, featuring modern and expanded gate-lounge areas, 17 food and beverage and retail concessions and a spacious central passenger lounge with expansive tarmac views.

    Too bad there's no walkway to the south side of C. And no covered boarding.

    If your flight leaves from C-South, you could easily stroll over, if there were a walkway, vs. walking north, taking train etc.

    The walkway would have to go through the middle of the Marriott.

    As one who connects frequently from Latin America through IAH, I welcome ANY improvement to the train wreck that is the current Terminal B. If they can just do something about the overcrowded boarding areas, that alone would make the process far less dreaded.

    Now if they would just get rid of AirServ.
