Oh yea... I just had my run in with all this mess this past weekend. My inbound flight was given an ATC delay, so we landed a little late but still not bad. I had 35 minutes before my next departure. Well, we pulled up to 'G'. I forgot which gate, but all the way down at the end. We had to wait a long 5 minutes or so before a PSA Agent came down and opened the door so we could get off the plane. Then a quick rush inside finds the Departure Boards all the way at the other end from were you enter the building. So I walk all the way down to learn my next flight departs out of A6. To get the bus you need to walk all the way back to the other side were you just came in. So I jump on the bus... and wait.. and wait. Finally we get moving and of course its a maze just to get across the ramp and we have two 'holds' as planes tazi by. Finally we get to the Main Terminal were I get off to learn I need to double back one building to get to the 'A' gates. So a rush don stairs to the moving floor finds only 2 of the 3 working. Arriving inside Terminal B I'm almost there. NOT. Arrows point that A is to my left.... So I start walking.. and walking.. and walking, up the stairs and down the stairs were finally I see Gate A6 with two minutes to spare. WooHoo..!! "I'm sorry sir, we waited.. I paged you..your flight has left".... "LEFT.. it's two minutes before departure..!!" I was so mad..!! They re-book me on the next flight out... 3 hours later departing out of.. TERMINAL G..!! So back I hike.
