Out with the old, in with the new. Three banks of pay phones at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport have been converted to charging stations for electronic devices, a small upgrade big on symbolism and commentary on our changing times. The switch adds 184 outlets and USB ports in concourse D, an effort aimed at reducing plug-jockeying at the gates of JetBlue, Delta, United, U.S. Airways and Air Canada. The outlets replace previously removed phones that used to dangle inside the silver kiosks mounted on the walls.
