Tarmac? Its called an apron or gates
Sam S (1 day ago)
LaGuardia tries to do this in renovated areas, with mixed success. For example, Delta's terminal D just renovated a few years ago, you pass the shops after security as described. However, when leaving you pass some of the shops again - there was no space to avoid passing them in both directions (for part of it). Still interesting.

Ok, so you tell me that British people like to queue. I’m from Britain and I hate to queue so don’t just say that something about someone that’s not true.

He said tarmac... fun fact: there isn't any place called the tarmac. It's called the ramp and is not called that by ATC and pilots.

Wally Kramer (29 days ago)
I can only speculate why you might say that. 140 countries drive on the right; 54 drive on the left. The land area is even more heavily weighted toward right side driving. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Left-_and_right-hand_traffic

The queue thing is interesting, and its much more than anxiety reduction. If you have a separate line for each window, things overall move slower. Mathematically speaking, if ONE line is feeding multiple windows, everyone actually spends less time overall waiting

Alas, the mass media seem to be fixated on calling aviation aprons "tarmac". Some sort of linguistic fallacy perhaps.

Self check-in is 25% SLOWER, not 25% faster due to lack of kiosks, kludgy interface design, and bottlenecks at bag drop. But of course, it does cut labor costs to the airline. Please fact check yourself and don't just repeat what you read in the in-flight magazine.

You do realise your fan base is from all over you really should stop talking to just Americans and talk to your fans instead of talking like Americans are the only ones watching your videos just thought because it puts me off watching them but the content is great so i keep coming back and then spat in the face to know you clearly don't value your fan base from other countries.....

Whether you love or hate them, airports are captivating places. It seems like waiting is the only thing anyone ever gets done. With nothing to do and nowhere to go before your zone number is called, you either reread last night’s texts or you just sit there like a vegetable and stare. It’s impossible not to notice a million things about those in the crowd of strangers around you and you smile when you happen to glance up and catch someone’s eye. You know the odds are good that you’ll never see any of these people again but you can’t help but wonder where they’re from, where they’ve been, or where they’re going. You feel some kind of deep-rooted respect and reverence because there is so much living going on, so many journeys being taken physically, emotionally, spiritually – and you’re not only in the middle of it, you’re contributing to it. Beyond the gates, beyond the blue, everyone is waiting. I’ll bet some don’t even know what for. Maybe they’re waiting because that’s all they’ve ever known, waiting for something to happen… anything at all. Some are content, some are entirely discontent. Some love waiting because it gives them something to hang on to, something to keep the gears turning in their minds. Some are tired of waiting because they don’t know what’s beyond the gates but they’re still curious as to what’s out there, they’re still searching for something. Maybe some are so busy waiting, they forget what indescribable beauty is right there in front of them. -Adam Young

"No one likes to queue (except maybe the British)" ~ so trueeee I don't lurve queueing but it can be really fun if you have people with you😂
Simon West (3 months ago)
In the case of most UK airports (unsure if it’s a similar thing elsewhere) you actually have to walk through duty free in order to get to the main departure area and the gates. In addition you’ll likely find 2 or 3 of the same store ( in the UK it’s normally WHSmith) near the gates, with the main branch in the shopping mezzanine and these smaller ones are for last-minute items like water and newspapers.

You should never buy anything other than snacks in a airport. Everything is overpriced.
Wally Kramer (29 days ago)
That is not true at Portland (Oregon) PDX. By regulation, vendors at the airport must charge the same price as elsewhere in their non-airport stores. And there is *no* sales tax in Oregon.

0:13 Isn't that Dulles International Airport? Cause if it is, it for sure is one huge airport. I got lost in it for over three times, trying to find my luggage, where to get to the ticketing booth, and etc. The roof of the airport is approximately 40 to 50 feet above the ground of the airport. It is quite of a beautiful view if you look at the airport from the corner from outside the building. It's literally an extremely crowded place to go to, especially in the arrivals area.

Canada doesn't exist, stop spreading rumors. That land above Seattle is just more America. I'm getting tired of people using meaningless words like "canada," what the hell is "canada?" There is US of America and more of it to the north, can't be anything else out there but more of this.

oh ok, airports tend to be architecture lovers' paradise, I agree, very futuristic. But when there, one is always tense as flying out, tired as flying in...still stressing.
magss raoo (4 months ago)
doru l yes airport is worst part for travelers. I totally agree with that.but I'm here into architecture. I love to discover new building and how modern airports encounter the worst experience of travelers.
Lazio l (4 months ago)
that speaks volumes about the hellholes you're traveling to :) Airports are the worst part of any trip :) unless of course you're going to a place, as Trump puts it, "shithole," then yes, airports are the most refreshing nicer part of the trip :)))
Henry Tan (4 months ago)
At the 3:41min. That's not a plane. Its a train. The huge windows gave the game away. Also the super wide aisle, no airline is going to sacrifice that much real estate unless its a First Class cabin of which it is clearly not. There are other obvious clues but mentioning these two standouts is sufficient.
Sam Gamgee (5 months ago)
None of this explains why SFO is so badly designed that you never know where you are or how to get anywhere or why they have doofuses on watch as you enter who are so stupid they don't understand about time zones and tell you when you are travelling to the Far East that your ticket is for tomorrow and that you are a day too early.
paul sullivan (11 days ago)
SFO has been built over at least 4 decades for the currently extant terminals, and is continuing to be rebuilt. (I call it San Francisco Eternally Unfinished, and yes, it's the international airport I use most of the time [I've also used Oakland...] when flying internationally.) This can sometimes lead to the confusion, even with long-time SFO workers... I have never personally experienced a problem with a worker telling me I'm there on the wrong day at SFO. (Narita, yes, and I WAS there on the wrong day!)

have you seen Cancun? Is like a warehouse, and yes, ac not working...and is Cancun not Alaska, gee, you may think Ac is top on their minds? Very depressing place that arrival building. Departure building slightly better, at least they cared about passengers' health and had us exercise, i mean we had to walk to the airplane. Had to spot it first, there were la ton of them and not enough gates so they decided if you want to fly out get your ass out there and find your plane. Beautiful place, amazingly cretin airport protocols. If Trump ever flies through Cancun he'll make the wall 50 feet taller than already planned hahahaha
