More airports try to keep drivers out of the loop

"It's a familiar drill. You wait until the last minute before leaving the house for the airport to pick up an arriving friend or family member, to minimize the wait.

But unless you're lucky, airport police will have to shoo you away from the terminal door a time or two, the result of tighter post-9/11 security. So you drive the airport loop until the traveler arrives.

That, of course, was before airports discovered cellphone lots — free parking areas where the people picking up fliers can simply await the "I'm ready" call from the arriving traveler.
