I have absolutely no misunderstanding of the investment or operational requirements. I also take it you've never seen or experienced the remote bus-only gates at LAX. The same model can be replicated...

That's fair, but would you rather wait an hour on the aircraft or immediately deplane and take a bus, saving perhaps 40 minutes or more?

Why Do Americans Tolerate "Gate Waiting?"

I expatriated to Asia starting in about 2008 and moved back to the U.S. earlier this year. Now I travel quite a bit domestically for work. While I realize that it certainly isn’t anything new in...

Bonvoy Devaluations
