Great question--I'd be interested to know as well. Any
JFK nuts out there with the inside scoop?

There are plenty! Let's hope they can be more helpful than myself.
For a couple months time now AeroSur has been operating into JFK from Havana with their 727s. These flights are scheduled every other weekend, if I recall correctly.
There's a rumor floating around that 727 service will end on August 2nd, at which point the flight will be upgraded to the 767-200.

Can you even operate a 727 in the U.S. anymore? I thought they were too noisy, even with hushkits.

Quoting DocLightning ( Reply 3): Can you even operate a 727 in the U.S. anymore? I thought they were too noisy, even with hushkits.
They certainly can. As long as they are Stage-III compliant.
Still lots of 727s floating around by US operators including Fedex, DHL, Capital Cargo, Amerijet plus all the private ones.
Go down to place like MIA or MEM and you can see (and hear) 727s daily.

On July 7th I was on an AA flight from Miami to Quito, Eucador departing in the early evening. As we were departing the terminal areas I see an AeroSur 727 parked next to an AeroSur 737 at one of the terminals where a lot of international flights depart. [Edited 2009-07-20 05:19:45]

They base a 722 at
MIA, which I'm guessing is the same one they cycle into JFK from HAV. On occassion, they'll send a 762 on a Cuban run, too.
