In this pic you can see various aircraft parked and attached to jetways, but each building seems to be not joined to anything else, i.e a terminal! So where does everybody go? Underground?

Cheers!!

Buses to the Tom Bradley International Terminal. Domestic flights sometimes use these buildings.

Another question I had about this is where is the EVA plane? I see a Cathay Pacific and Air New Zealand along with the others mentioned, but no EVA Air. Maybe I just missed it.

Nope, that's an El Al B777. The star is the giveaway.

Nope, he means further to the right of the El Al (and isn't the El Al a 763?)

So sorry, you are correct it's a 767-300! Now I see the one in the corner, it was cut off on my screen until I scrolled right, and yes, it's Air New Zealand.

Those little buildings appear a bit odd. I'd imagine 400 people can't cram in there to wait for a bus. Do they deplane by sections, or are there buses steadily coming during an arrival to fit everyone?

I was about to ask the same question about these gates ... so you are bused from the gates to/from the terminal? How much space is in the gates? Are you required to wait there for a long period of time?

How well does this system work?

The El Al is a 767-200 I believe turning to YYZ. The NZ is definately a 763. I've always been intrigued by this system; however I've never utilized it. I always deplane at the terminal complex when I fly into LAX.

hmmm i was just wondering...those air bridges look rather small and im not too sure if they are connected to the aircraft doors???If they are...it still leaves the problem of luggage. By the looks of things there doesn't seem to be much equipment that can handle the baggage requirements for these types of aircraft! My 1st opinion was that they were only remote stands for aircraft to stay during their long wait until departure back to their origin?!?!please correct me if i am wrong.

Those jetways do accomodate the aircraft. In times of peak usage then those stands are used just as if they are at the actual terminal complex.

Those buildings are the "west remote buildings." A plane unloads into each building and anywhere from 2 to 6 busses (depending on the plane) pull up to the building and bus them to the Bradley International building to clear immigration and customs.

I flew into one of these remote terminals on KLM from AMS a good 7 years ago... as people have said, we were bused to the main Bradley terminal to clear customs and immigration. I think there were 5 buses required to transport everyone off of our -400. On that particular flight, we had a person with a medical situation, so everyone was told to remain seated until the emergency workers deplaned the fallen passenger. By the time that was accomplished, we got straight into our buses.

Sometimes you see foreign planes parked at these remote terminals overnight. Qantas usually seems to have a few -400s parked in this vicinity at night... sometimes just on the remote tarmac and not pulled up to a terminal at all.



I love America. I guess that makes me Bush's poodle, but I'd rather be a dog in New York City than a prince in Riyadh.

The caption DID say EVA when it first appeared as the Top of Last 24 Hours. I couldn't find the plane, so I assumed it was just a typo, and I was right.

Athens International (Eliftheros Venizelos) has a similar system, where you go down about 8 staircases to go through security and then buses take you from a small room to your aircraft. Granted these are not used for long-haul routes, but I was there for a LH A300 to FRA last year during the Olympics and I must say the system worked VERY well. I also experienced it with an LX flight on an AVRO.

Remote bussing and boarding is a concept not widely used by airports in the United States, especially in comparison to airports in Europe.

Those stands in the aforementioned photo are remote stands and at least some of them do have "shelters" with jetbridges attached to them.

CDG is widely known for having to board passengers on remote stands. Air France is notorious for this ... and they just put the blame on ADP. In "satellite Hotel" (a remote area with 12 parking stands to the North of Terminal 2F) they have managed to scrape together covered boarding areas with partially covered walkways out to 6 parking stands. Otherwise, all other stands are really out in the open.

Thank you all for showing intrest in my shot. Those stands were full the entire day. AI was one that used it when I showed up that day. Being Saturday the arrivals were very early compared to that of the other days.

Again thanks a lot for taking a peek at my shot!

Thanks!
