Pet peeve – still on deplaning at NAIA T3

I was waiting for the boarding call for my flight and took the photo below of passengers deplaning via the stairs at the aft door and the air bridge. These were loaded unto the waiting buses, which ferried them to the terminal building.

For all those buses with their drivers, fuel and emissions, wouldn’t it have been more cost efficient to just operate the airbridge and let the passengers use this facility rather than have them take the stairs (and without assistance for the elderly and those with babies or small children)? From an environmental perspective, wouldn’t use of the air bridge make more sense in terms of reducing carbon footprints as well as fuel consumption?
