1. Surely learning from pier 1, this wont be allowed to happen on pier 2/3.
2 There's surely going to be enough stands capable of handling the 747's from the existing T2 even whilst the second pier is getting built.
3. When pier 2/3 are built, isn't the likelihood that most VS will park in those two closer to the new lounges leaving pier 1 to Loco's/charters.
4. How many A350's, 747's etc, will be on the ground max at any one time? Wont there be enough stands in pier 2/3 to cope with these if the pier 1 issue can't be sorted? I know that's not the point but it should be manageable right?

That timeline probably makes it a non issue unless the A350 is also a problem?
