I was shocked to see that they still use those big people-movers (or whatever you call those things) to move people from terminal to terminal. It reminded me of the scene from Airport '75 when Karen Black used one to go meet Charlton Heston at the lounge. I'd have assumed they'd have an underground tunnel by now. It was a cool experience to ride one. Listen, modern conveniences are good and all but sometimes the throwback can be really fun. They have those people movers at IAD on my flight sim but I thought it was just outdated.
