It says so in their latest FF newsletter

New names at Melbourne Airport

From 1 July 2005, the terminals at Melbourne Airport will be renamed.

The Qantas domestic terminal will become Terminal 1 (T1).

The international terminal will become Terminal 2 (T2).

The multi-user southern domestic terminal will become Terminal 3 (T3).

You'll see these new names on the road signs, and on signs in car parks and inside the terminal.:D

How kind of QF to name a shared Terminal (INTL)...:rolleyes: talk about arrogance! It will always be "Delta" to me!:ok:

Not really, seeing it was the Melbourne Airport Company that renamed them.

They probably spent millions on consultants and focus groups to come up with these cutting edge and innovative new names.

I think they spent their money getting ready for the A380.

They also realised that Qantas domestic drivers can't count past one.

Having stood on an Aerobridge & listened to a QF duty Manager tell the ACO where to park "our" aircraft so that "his" aircraft could park at the Gate (D3) we were set up on, it has all the hallmarks of QF telling MAC what to do.

If the Airport authority instigated this, then I am amazed. Why, in an age of political correctness, would you give what is arguably a lucrative name (Terminal 1) to an individual operator? Surely a shared terminal (INTL) should carry this title. Also, the numbering sequence is not logical, they'll just confuse the plonkers that travel...definately a QF decision.;)

You are not much on logic if you think naming the MIDDLE terminal as number 1 is the best way to go.

It has to be in order 1, 2, 3. You can buy books which will help you with this sequence at any childrens book store.

Given that the sequence by convention is from left to right the argument is whether it should be 1, 2, 3 on the road side (i.e. Virgin/Rex terminal No 1) or from airside (Qantas terminal No 1) they obviously went with the latter. Big Deal.

Right...Okay...I see the light.:rolleyes:

I read Terminal & was thinking "Finger". Therefore, B & C are now Terminal 1, D is Terminal 2 & E & F belong to Terminal 3...Okay, with the program...carry on all!:ok:

You will find that the name change was instigated in fact by the Victorian Government and Melbourne Airport in an attempt to make the airport more user friendly for our foreign guests before the Commonwealth Games in 2006.
