Time in motion

Does anyone else find that with every airport upgrade they increase the distance to walk from the plane, to the gate, through the airport to the luggage carousel? I approve of this. It seems that human beings are much calmer if they are moving, as if towards some final goal, than if they are made to stand stationary and impotent to the timing of the bags dropping out of that vinyl covered flap. Even if the time it takes to have your bag in hand and be waiting for a cab is identical.

I don't know. I used to get to the airport by the skin of my teeth, so I wouldn't have to hang around in the departure lounge, but I can't judge waiting times any more.
