JFK T3 Question

Hey guys,
Just found out tonite that a close friend of mine will be flying back from her vacation in Virginia to Maine, with a 3 hour layover at Kennedy. She's flying DL, most likely DLConnection, so im guessing T3. I plan on suprising her on her layover and seeing her, but I need to know a few things. How far in the terminal, as a non-passenger, can I go? (I have never set foot into T3 since pre-9/11), and when she is changing flights, does she have to (or can she) leave the gate area, and security to a gate area, or outer area? As this is a suprise I want to be able to get in and see her. What about the restaurant at the top of T3, would I be able to reach that?

Thanks,
-Tom

The strange thing about T-3 and T-2 the Delta terminals is that the whole terminal is behind security, the screening check points are at the doors.

So bacically you can't get in the terminal any where without a ticket, even the baggage claim, or check in areas.

Yes, I do remember where it is at the security checkpoint before and I was came back from international flight on Delta and went to the customs and took me in the elevator to the third floor at the security checkpoint lane. I ate Sbarro there near the Delta ticket counter, too. Well, talk ya later!

Regards!

I didn't notice that a few years ago. There goes your plan.... Next best thing is to phone your friend and ask if she can leave the terminal and meet up with you!

Actually, this has changed. Delta check-in is now before security. They've put big glass windows to separate the areas.... However, this doesn't really change your situation.

I flew on Aeroflot in january to Russia. Security was before check-in. Where is sbarro in T3? I want sbarro in T3! Tell me where it is?

PS: I/my mom spend 8hrs there on a connection from BTV, we didn't know of a sbarro.



What now?

And I flew to Atlanta from T3 in February, security was after check-in. The Sbarro is in the food-court next to the Delta Connection gates.

Security for all Delta metal flights is AFTER check-in. Security for other operators at T-3 (South African, Aeroflot, CSA, etc) is BEFORE check-in. In that instance, if an item that would be prohibited as a carry-on is discovered in your luggage to be checked, it is bagged, tagged and accompanied with you from the security checkpoint to the check-in counter. The whole terminal is a F*ed up ghetto, and badly needs to be replaced!

I have to agree... I really do wish that they would replace that terminal and terminal 2. What I don't really understand is why they don't have more of the other operators use the check-in counters at Terminal 2, where all check-in is now before security. They've installed these huge glass walls, and now security is past check-in where the shops are.
