All three Terminals have four levels:  Levels 1, 2, 3, and a Gate level (between levels 2 & 3) with Gate areas 1, 2 & 3; at gate area entry is the security checkpoint.  Three escalators located at each level's center, right & left connect to the next level, while elevators are on both ends of levels 1-3.  Signs direct passengers to specific levels of terminals and to their services.
Terminal A houses mainly domestic flights other than United (but including some of United Express); Terminal B houses all international flights - departures & arrivals -  except that United uses both Terminal B & Terminal C for international arrivals; Terminal C is exclusively for United's intrnational departure, some of United's international arrivals, & for some of United Express flights.
