I'm going to throw some thoughts down here, because i'm bored.

Firstly, what Gold Coast Airport is now is paradise. I remember going there on Freedom Air and it was a fucking prefab shack. But you already know that. Could still benefit from a bit more gate space.

Secondly, there are a shitload of reasons for no airbridges.

1) They're expensive. To buy, install and operate.
2) Airbridges need two story (at least) buildings to work. Gold Coast Airport is one story and doesn't need to be any more without adding to point #1
3) Low cost airlines like to use both front and rear doors as it makes boarding and disembarking faster - and Cooly is almost exclusively low coast airlines. They also don't like point #1
4) Gold Coast climate is conducive to walking across the tarmac
5) It's common in a lot of places - i walked across the tarmac to board a Pacific Blue flight in AUCKLAND. Europe as well.
6) See #1

DFW could be, I'd be surprised if Denver was......even so, O'Hare is still huge.

Yes, I am. The Yankees did lose.

In theory, of course I could help get you one.
