From James of ISpyShanghai.com, who apparently is in town working on Pudong Airport’s new Terminal which is slated to open in early 2008:
Not to get all airport-geek on you, but it pretty much looks like the terminal at Incheon, Korea. Massive glass walls at either end to let in light, and more light coming in through the ceiling. It feels much bigger and cooler than the old terminal, but that could be because there aren’t thousands of people standing around eating cup noodles.
No shops or anything in there yet of course, but the ceiling and floor look finished, loads of check-in desks are almost ready to go, and there’s light and a/c all over the place. The usual rigorous Chinese quality control is being applied to the English signage.
