Why don't people who have the time between flights walk more given the health benefits? Seems like there are times when I have the rainforest tunnel or 'history of Georgia' murals at ATL almost to myself.
I feel the same way about walking quickly in airports (and elsewhere). As long as I'm not running into other people, pushing them out of the way, or cutting into their path, I really don't see why other people should have a problem with it.
