To complement Ben’s Chili Bowl at National airport we have Five Guys re-opened on the fa US Airways upper gates pier.
I genuinely don’t understand the closure for the better part of the last year, the re-model looks… just like it did before.
The real mystery, though, that took me several minutes to figure out was why I was seeing this American plane on the far US Airways pier.
There are American regional jet flights now leaving from the far pier, utilizing US Airways bus gates. But I hadn’t seen any American mainline aircraft re-positioned.
When I got to the gate, I saw it wasn’t an American flight after all!
It was a US Airways aircraft that had been repainted in American’s livery. Well that’s confusing!
Change is coming to National airport in many forms!
There’s even finally going to be a Starbucks that’s airside… but not on the US Airways or American piers, so the lines at the Dunkin Donuts stand will continue to look like this in the mornings:
It almost makes you think these people are trying to rent a car from Alamo rather than get themselves some coffee!
