Transformation of Terminal F starting soon

Those of you who have followed my work awhile know that I have focused on what to do with Terminal F in the past. The terminal has been a work in progress almost since it opened close to a decade ago. Complaints about its limited gate areas, inadequate concessions, small bag-claim area and lousy signage went on for years. Conditions (especially the signage) have improved significantly, but the building still needs a total makeover. I'm happy to see The Inquirer's airport reporter, Linda Loyd, has a story today outlining a $135 million upgrade for Terminal F.
