A)Can someone please tell me the configuration of the runways (maybe some major taxiways) at KJFK, as well as their general use.(takeoffs, landings)
B)Yesterday, at KJFK, I observed various landings on runway 31R (landing from the south/southeast). I also observed a small, regional-type turboprop plane take off from 31R. All other planes were taking off from the runway nearest to the Delta terminal. Since there was a long line for takeoff, i was wondering: why dont they(JFK) use 31R for takeoffs to ease congestion on the other one?
