too many smilies. You're not furthering the conversation. Please offer a more substantive post in the future instead of giving us an eyesore with an excessive attempt at visual humor.

This is actually an issue, I know that terminals are circular, but soon that won't be enough.

I'm worried that buses may soon be the main way to get to planes.

Yeah, but at other paces there is often chaos, due to dumb local airlines. (Yes, Ben Gurion is that place)

This happened at Le Bourget. It is a general aviation field which is not normally used by airplanes even a third of the size of the 388, but France thinks it's still a great field for an airshow that hosts planes like the 747 and 380. Go figure.

I think that is because there is only 1 AN-225, and wherever it goes, they make special preparations. However, there are hundreds of 744s and A380s worldwide, so it is more likely for them to have mishaps.
