O'Hare has the rubber-tired tram that goes from the remote parking to the terminals. Although it has a stop at each of the terminals, it isn't that practical to go between terminals with it since it's outside security and across the road.
Although you would need to use it to get to/from the international terminal and all of the others.

DFW's new one is supposed to replace the old decrepid looking ones that haven't been replaced since probably the opening of DFW. The new ones are on elevated tracks and have stops at 2 points at each terminal. The stations are airside too and there should be some nice spotting from up there as well as it runs on top of the terminal. As for the overall speed, I don't know. I do know it is officially called SkyLink.
Give me a break, I created this username when I was a kid...

SEA has two loops. One that goes to the North Satellite and one that goes to the South Satellite. They are underground. Make sure you hold on when it stops. I made the mistake of not holding on... The lady I flew into probably was not to happy of where I landed on her.

Just an interesting bit of trivia, but from what I understand that clanky, sluggish, old train downstairs at IAH was actually designed by, or at least with the help of, Disney!
Guess they were going for a monorail effect or something. Anyone who has taken a corner in the IAH tram versus one in the Disney monorail can attest to the fact that they came up a bit short at IAH. Hold on tight.
Can't wait for the TerminaLink to be completed at IAH. Not only is it much quicker and more convenient, but it provides for excellent views of the airfield.

SIN (Changi) / Singapore - between Terminal 1 and 2
NRT (Tokyo-Narita) / Japan - Terminals connected with main terminal
KIX (Kansai-Osaka) / Japan - within terminal
ZRH (Zurich) / Switzerland - Midfield Dock connected with "main" terminal
FRA (Frankfurt) / Germany - Terminal connected
ATL has been mentioned

LAS has a similar system to the one at ORD-on a smaller scale though.
STN and LGW also have people mover systems IIRC, so does LHR but it's a real train called Heathrow Express which is free between terminal 4 and the central area (there is also the Picadilly line but that costs £1.
you can't buy time but you can sell your soul and the closest thing to heaven is to rock'n'roll
