Instead of slouching in your chair, eating a Cinnabon, and playing on your iPad for what seems like an eternity, you now have the option of burning some calories before take-off. Philadelphia International Airport is one of the first airports in the U.S. to install free exercise bikes in the waiting areas around the gates.
The airport has received praise from passengers and will likely make the waiting area gyms a more permanent part of the airport. Only time will tell if airports and train stations throughout the country will follow suit and give riders a chance to get moving before being stuck in a seat for hours. For the first time in history, a flight delay could actually be a good thing.
