Yup

Yup
I thought of it as an interesting article split.
But I guess the mods can decide

And the horrendous NYC airport construction is contagious

I guess I must be in the minority here. I don't find LGA construction so terrible (though I do find the single runway to be a huge problem - spent as much time taxiing yesterday that I did in the air on the way to CLE).

Visited CLE for the first time yesterday, and I can tell you that I like the JFK and LGA experience over the CLE experience (though it could be a little of a hometown effect).

The big news about JFK is terminal One, which is run by the Terminal One Group, that IMHO should be fined and/or barred from running it, as I find it the worst terminal in JFK, both inbound and outbound.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

while new terminals is great and all, the problem is that they are not adding any runways which will be a bigger problem in the future

Same at LGA. So it's all for naught. The biggest problem with NYC airports are the long delays.

this was done so Cuomo can say he is revitalizing the infrastructure and fixing the airports-all to benefit his 2020 run-not real solutions for real problems

Isn't 100% of what politicians do just to benefit their current/next run?

Terminal One at JFK has a huge problem with gate availability IME. I've seen inbound flights wait way over an hour for a gate.

As far as additional runways, at JFK they'll need to reclaim some of Jamaica Bay, which would probably be a non-starter with environmentalists.

With LGA maybe they'll kill two birds with one stone, converting Rikers Island into some kind of an expansion of LGA.

With the exception of DJT, but he's not really a politician.  ;)
