Nothing beats boarding a plane from the tarmac. It’s a rare opportunity to see a glorious flying machine at a true 1:1 scale.
A jetway is great when it’s cold or raining but being able to ascend the steps of a 737 with all the associated sounds of the aircraft and the airport are simply unbeatable.
In Burbank, not only do you board at ground level but you’re free to choose the front or rear entrance.
I always go for the one that most people never get a chance to use.
