Seeing on how I finally got pictures to work (thank you jsnww81 for your help) and how I never posted ORD-FCO, just FCO-ORD here it is so enjoy!

The AGT train dropped us off from Remote Parking at Terminal Three, where we proceeded in the cramped terminal (it was under construction) to International Destinations Main-Cabin check in for American Airlines. We waited in line for about 10 minutes before an agent saw us. The check-in process took about 5 minutes and got our bags tagged to FCO and took them to the TSA and they went through the InVision screener. Flying is such a hassle now. We made our way to the main security checkpoint and went to the K Concourse.

The globe in the middle of the terminal, complete with Italy Flags.

Just the Italy flag, before the K/G Concourse Split

A poor quality shot of the K Concourse hall outside of our departure gate.

Our flight to Rome departed from gate K5.

Our 767-300 waiting at Gate K5, as you can clearly see, it was very cloudy.

We took off late, after a 45 minute taxi on Runway 14L. Over New York, Dinner was served. It was very good, and big for a coach meal.

The Cabin at Night, over Portugal

They showed us Under the Tuscan Sun and In America. I fell asleep and missed most of the flight. I woke to a wonderful smell of Breakfast.

We touched down late, and had no customs probelms. We took a train to Termini Station, called the Leonardo Express.

Great pics! Bravo! Have you got any pic of the people mover that connects the satellite of the Terminal C to the other Terminals at Rome/FCO?

Thank you all for the kind comments. VCE, I am sorry but I do not have any pics of the "Skybridge" but I can explain.

Your flight touches down in the international satellite terminal and you walk and see just a square looking area with doors on the right and left. Above your head, a sign says TO CUSTOMS AREA. When the train pulls up on the left or right side, an arrow on the sign points and the doors open and you get on. It waits for about 60 seconds before a door closing warning comes on. The doors close and a "please hold on" warning comes on and the train starts. It goes really fast. You can see some good runway and tarmac views and in about 40 seconds, an announcement says you are arriving and it slows down. You get off and head to "Dogana" (customs) and get your bags and leave the airport.
