Check out this website, Airblue. It gives capacity benchmarks for the 31 major airports in the country, along with some traffic stats. All three New York Airports are there.


And yep, you guessed it right, all three NYC airports handle way more than their capacity. Surprise, surprise!

A while ago, National Geographic Channel, (re)aired a documentary called 'Near Miss'. I think this also should have been aired by something called 'The Learning Channel' or so (I don't know this TV channel, since I live in Belgium, Europe). It reported about the air traffic in the New-York Area, and about the life of the controllers over there. I can only tell you that I was amazed by the amount of traffic handled each day by JFK, Newark and LaGuardia.

Yes, the amount of traffic an air traffic controller (ATCO) can take is amazing but the tower controller is not the busiest one: sure he (or she) gets lots of traffic but all sequenced, one behind another under speed control.
The busiest controller is the one working in a TRACON as he is the one doing the sequence: he gets traffic coming from everywhere and has to get it in line!
But please, do me a favor, DO NOT take the movie "Pushing Tin" as an example of what's being an ATCO; althought some parts look credible, this movie is full of mistakes and "cowboy stuff"!!

Kind Regards.

"Pushing Tin" was a horrible movie from many angles.
