For one thing, if T2 is shut down for some reason — i.e., serious fire or even roof collapse (which actually happened to the old Terminal C), T1 provides a way to maintain service. T1 also provides a means to serve the occasional non-scheduled need; in the Gulf War, if I recall correctly, the old 1954 terminal was pressed back into service for military charters.
