SEATAC, Wash. – United Airlines passengers were caught by surprise Wednesday morning.

The third largest airline carrier, United Airlines, moved from the north end of the Sea-Tac Airport terminal to the far south end after 40 years in the same spot.

Nancy Peterson, a United Airlines passenger, was one of those who was a “little caught off guard.”

The move happened overnight when signs were changed at ticket counters and baggage claim. United planes are now at Concourse A.

United’s move, which is one of the last pieces of the major realignment of airlines at Sea-Tac, will give the airport’s largest carrier, Alaska Airlines, sole control of the north portion of the airport.

Delta Airlines is also making changes. It has plans to unveil a new flow-through ticket counter Thursday morning.
