Can anybody give an update on the future of the Ex-TWA Terminal at New Yorks JFK Airport? Is JetBlue still interested to take it over or was that just a rumor? Are the conference-center plans off the table?

The last word I was on this from the NY-NJ Port Authority was that it is going to sit, empty, for some time to come. It cannot be torn down (due to its status on the National Historical Register) and right now, there aren't a bunch of airlines expanding anywhere, much less at JFK. Too bad! I remember sitting in that terminal in 1970, waiting to start the European portion of my round-the-world trip, and being fascinated (I was a kid then) watching the arrival and departure board change. Funny, the things we remember and were fascinated with! (slight sigh!)

I wouldn't be surprised to see Jet Blue move in sometime in the future. Out of all the airlines out there they really are the best candidate. Might not happen for a while, but if they keep up with their track record they’re going to need the space. With some updates and reconstruction T5 could once again be a shinning symbol for commercial aviation.
