A $30 million renovation of Philadelphia International Airport's American Airlines Terminal B, announced last week according to USA Today, will focus on the food, including giving visitors the opportunity to order meals from their gate to be delivered to them.
To do so, the renovation will place “thousands of iPads” at gate lounges where people can place their food and drink orders, as well as check their flight status and browse the web.
The terminal's dining options will also be better than before and will be "transformed by incredible Philly chefs," USA Today notes.
A Philly.com article on the upgrades goes on to say that the new menus will be "designed by nine noted local chefs," though no names have been dropped.
The renovations, which are being orchestrated by the airport, the airline and the New York-based food and beverage provider OTG Management, are expected to be phased in over the next 18 to 24 months.
