The bussing activity at European airports has always been a matter of curiosity and amusement to me. Why? It never happens in the States, and so often in Europe I am herded onto a bus, and enroute to the aircraft, I see countless unused airbridge-connected gates. I lump the Euro-bussing mind set into the same category as Euro-hotels not providing a simple shower curtain to keep water off the bathroom floor. Especially laughable is that half length glass panel which looks good and provides next to no floor protection. It would be a giant step into the current century if the airport busses disappeared completely and the shower curtains appeared universally!
