I don't think people understand how it won't be anything like the JFK AirTrain with its long ride and many stops. It will be one-stop, 1.5 miles, a mere 4 minutes ...

Re: Problems with the ILS on 22 right at Detroit Metro Airport.

The ILS 22R Y for years was not used. It’s slightly offset, and became more prominent when DTW airspace was changed two years ago with RNAV SID/STARS. The Y approach allows approaches on 22 L and R at the same time. My guess is they prefer using the Y as it’s easier than running a PRM.
