There are many items an airport/airline may choose to send its passengers from the gate area to the aircraft. As examples, the airport/airline may send its passengers directly to a plain jetway from the gate (the all-too-typical method), or send the passengers down a labyrinth of halls before reaching the jetway. The airport/airline may also send its passengers down an escalator which leads to a waiting bus, which then transports the passengers to the aircraft (the transporter method). The airport/airline may also elect to send passengers down a "splitting-jetway" or a "super-jetway" (multiple jetways attached to one main jetway). The airport/airline may also experience inoperative jetways and are forced to board via stairs for mainline equipment. Whatever "non-standard" in walking to the aircraft can be included.

What do you feel has been the most "creative" movement to the aircraft? Please list the airport, exact gate (if possible), and the movements needed to go to the aircraft.

When I got off my ass, I walked about ten feet, handed my boarding pass to the gate agent, then walked my ass another fifty or so feet, then sat my ass down.

That is about the most creative method I can think of.
