Tribune readers: Give us your suggestions for cheeky signs about the SLC airport’s long walk

Many of us have to deal with the journey to and from the B gates. The least we could do is have a little fun with it.

(Francisco Kjolseth | The Salt Lake Tribune) Salt Lake City International Airport tries to interject humor as travelers navigate the long walk to the B gates Wednesday, Jan. 31, 2024.

Everyone knows it. There’s no ignoring it. The trek to Salt Lake City International Airport’s B gates is long.

Airport officials know it, too. That’s why they put out some spunky signs poking fun at the much-lampooned journey.

“Doctors recommend 10,000 steps per day,” one sign, plastered to the wall, reads. “We’re just looking out for your health. New Central Tunnel arriving in 2024.”

Travelers will get some relief from the walk later this year when that flashy new tunnel opens just outside of the security checkpoint, but, for now, they’re stuck with snaking through part of the A concourse to access the B gates.

We want to know: If you were in charge of putting out those cheeky signs, what would you want them to say? You can have some fun with it. Something like:

• “Sorry for the walk. At least our restaurants won’t gouge you.”

• “You should have flown Delta.”

• “Hey, Brigham Young trekked farther.”

• “Yes, it’s a long walk. Go ahead and get that second cup of fry sauce.”
