Hey - it was written up in "D" Magazine as one of the best kinds of cheap entertainment - especially riding it after midnight between nearly deserted terminals. I have to admit - it WAS kind of cool, although it was fraught with problems at the start...I know - I had a summer job monitoring them the year the airport opened.
There were a few temporary gate closures while the piers were going up, but that wasn''t really an issue because of the flight reductions since fall 2001, as well as the rolling hub which reduced the total number of gates required. Plus, a lot of work was being done overnight.
