Here at RNO: from tug disconnect to begin of take-off roll: rarely more than three minutes! Wish I worked at a busier airport... sigh...
Active loading only, ma'am, keep it moving!

There's only 5 airplanes in that shot there's no excuse for any more than a 5 minute wait (unless they give 3 minutes for wake behind the 753 in Europe, too.)
