DULLES AEROTRAIN IS OPEN. R.I.P. “MOBILE LOUNGES.” Finally, those awful, awkward “mobile lounges” that travelers to and from Washington, DC’s Dulles Airport had to endure to get to their gate…are history (for the most part)! The airport’s new underground AeroTrain system commenced service last month. Every two minutes, shiny new trains whisk passengers along a central spine connecting the main terminal with distant concourses. (Sorta similar to train systems at airports in Atlanta and Denver…) Delta and AirTran operate out of the “B” gates at Dulles. Note: For the time being, United passengers traveling to/from the airport’s “D” gates still have to board the mobile lounges. Luckily, most Atlanta-based travelers can choose Washington-Reagan-National airport when their destination is D.C. proper and only choose Dulles when fares are cheaper or when they’ve got business in northern Virginia and the surrounding region,

Those buses where a little uncomfortable and akward. But it works well in getting passenger into and off a bus with a high terminal to accomodate passengers getting on a plane.
I am from Liberia and would love to purchase those old buses for our airport.
