Delta's Logic Vs. Passengers' Comfort: An Unfair Match.

After an eight-hour flight from Paris to New York, weary Delta Air Lines passengers were forced to walk one entire mile (1.6 km) from the arrival gate to the Immigration and Customs area.

When one of the crew members heard that the plane was arriving at Gate B39--one of the farthest gates at Terminal Four of JFK Airport --he commented: "Why are the punishing us?"

Apparently, to the airline's masochistic mentality (matched only by the airport's facilities), it seems more logical to make short-flight passengers walk short distances and long-haul travelers walk marathons.
