AA's New Terminal At JFK

I've just had a look on the Port Authority's JFK website and it states that AA's new terminal will open fully in 2007.

It gives the impression though that it will open in stages before then.

Does anyone over there know if this is indeed the case ?

I was also thinking that opening the new terminal might precipitate some new Euro routes from JFK for AA.

MAN, GLA and DUB spring to mind immediately.

GLA in particular would be terrific Big grin

My information has the mid-field terminal opening this summer. All other work is on a slow, cost as little as possible, path.

But no new routes, yet, as there will not be a net gain in Gates until the entire project is complete. And the project has been scaled back from the original plan that you might have seen in models prior to 9/11.

Seeing as I fly to/from the JFK AA terminal 2-4 times a month, I think that any improvement would be great. The place is horrid.

I actually don't remember AA's JFK terminal being that horrid. I was there almost two years ago, after I flew LHR-JFK on an AA Boeing 777. While waiting to board an AA MD-80 JFK-STL, I got to take a look around it. I'd have to say there was nothing special about it, but it at least was a little more interesting than their terminal at ORD  Big thumbs up  Laugh out loud

T-9 is pretty bad by US standards for modern major International airports, T-8 less so. Although at JFK T-2 is even worse still.

The new AA Terminal when complete will have 37 gates, a small increase from what was available prior to the projects launch. The project now mostly is a upgrade rather than an expansion of the JFK operation, it's pretty much a given that any expansion of flights will be in the International rather than Domestic as made quite evident by the removal of Eagle's 20 gates from the project.

I think if DL were to make a drastic reduction at JFK Internationaly then AA would probably be keen to pick up the slack, however if things stay the way the are then I would look for more "Seasonal" International growth as opposed to year round service.

I would look for "Seasonal" growth to Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Barcelona, mostly with Domestic 757s as they are doing in Boston (save Italy).

STT57,

I think any growth would be seasonal initially and then year round.

With NY being a premium destination I thought the 2 class 763 might have been used.

ps, anyone have any idea when GLS-BOS will be announced ?

AA is going to have a few new terminals in the coming years. One at MIA, the new international terminal at DFW and the new one at JFK.

In the UK I reckon GLA, MAN and possibly BHX.

DUB and a few airports on the continent might be served also.

A daily 763 to GLA would be great Big grin

When I said horrid, I was reffering to:
- The dark, dated and worn out decor.
- The low ceilings.
- The squeezed in security checkpoints.
- The lack of amenities. A bit more choice when it comes to food would be more than welcome.
- The lack of Windows at the end of T-8. It's like sitting in a cave full of people.

This place is actually worse than LHR3, and that's saying a lot. At least at LHR3 there are a zillion stores to wander around in.

Actually STT757, the AA terminal is a huge expansion----AND U KNOW THAT!

It will be the largest terminal in the NY area (even larger than STT's EWR terminals) with a check in hall larger than Giants Stadium (also in NJ, my man STT757)
The terminal will have 37 gates. A net increase of 12 gates over AAs previous terminal. That's a 48% increase STT.

when you look at the photo, IBs little gate it 22, which is to the right of the end of that little road, I hope AA can get them a better gate

AlitaliaMD11- I'm sure they will...I don't think there will be a bad gate in the whole place. I used to have rendrings of the inside, but I got a new computer and they were lost...does anyone have them?

DUB
MAN
GLA
BCN

The new terminal will be open in April of 2005. They will still use terminal 8, for international arrivals. But at least will use the new terminal, for departures. It will be, a great improvement over the current terminal.

Easy there..

It will have 37 gates, not that many as before. It is a large increase in square footage of the building, but gate wise it's not that big of an increase in capacity.

The check in hall was planned to be quite large, but will not be as large as planned when completed. They may expand it to it's originaly planned size later, however when it opens the ticketing hall will not be as large as JFK's T-4.

Compare the planned size of the ticketing hall



And what's being built, it's about half the size.



It's not as large as CO's EWR which has over 70 gates, closer to 80. The gate capacity is something to brag about, not the square footage of the check in hall. That's where travelers spend the least amount of time.

Even with 37 gates...AA currrently has 23 I believe so that is a huge increase in gate space.

Lets not argue about size though...as they always say, "size doesnt matter...its how you use what you have"

A quick question. Is the design of the terminal suppose to allow for aircraft to taxi between what looks like the underground walkway between the two terminals. From looking at that overhead picture and then the simulated pictures just above, it looks like it would be quite a tight fit for some of the larger aircraft like the 777. From the overhead picture, it appears that the aircraft near this area all by itself is an A300. It looks like it would pass, but without a substantial amount of clearance room. Anyone know taxi patterns around this new terminal?

T8 and T9 make Mumbai's Airport look like Changi.

The terminal is a disgraceful introduction to the United States.

At this point anything would be an improvement.

I don't think there will be any new destinations from JFK for AA. Nothing has been going around the rumor mill. The exact date for the opening of the new midfield terminal is April 20, 2005. The reduction in size of the terminal is due to the fact that American Eagle's operation at JFK was downsized, and the concourses for the RJs won't be built.

STT757,
You are incorrect with your size findings.  Smile

Your photo is not the whole terminal. The check in hall has not been shrunk at all. It will be the same size. Take a look at the temporary walls on either side of the ticketing hall in a newer photo.

Also notice that the departure roadway extends on the east and west sides of the half-built terminal. They would not build a brand new elevated roadway if it wasn't conecting to a terminal frontage.

The actual size of the terminal is the full length of that straight-edge elevated roadway.
