Now in particular the bus ride at CIA has been incredibly short, it took ages before a full FR 738 was loaded into busses, they drove 50 meters to the entrance of the terminal and then everybody had to get out. The parking places around the aircraft where taken but none of them had the engines running. It would have been completely safe to walk those 50 m to the terminal entrance, as the bus ride lasted less than 10 seconds.

Does Dulles (IAD) still use the busses that connect to the plane like a jetway? I remember those from 1986...

Or did you fall down a flight of airstairs recently?

I remember back in 2002 deplaning a US A330 from CDG at PHL we used one of those Busses you speak of.

Can someone explane to me why it is such a big deal to set a bus and stairs over to a plane parked in the bullpen when passengers have been sitting there for more tha a couple hours-Obviously I know its a pain in the rear for the airline but surely after a coupel hours it must be possible>
|Quoting Jsnww81 (Reply 47):|
Besides, we Americans seem to have lost the ability to climb a simple flight of stairs without tripping/falling and suing somebody... can you imagine how many lawsuits the airlines would see if we had bus/stair boarding here on a larger scale?
