Would certainly help the operation and eliminate the need to arrive passengers and aircraft over at T-4.
Also could entice some of its partner airlines from other terminals to maybe move-in allowing easier connectivity.

We were discussing this in the thread about T8. It's been the plan for a while to build a second T5 wing with an FIS facility where the current T6 is. The question will be whether they build an even larger facility on the land where T7 is currently located. jetBlue's new T5 is fantastic. I would love to see another wing connected to it. It is certainly a much better experience for passengers than T4 or even T1 at JFK, despite the long walk from the airtrain.
As for whether airlines will move there, that will be the big question. Lufthansa is one of the four airlines that built T1, so I don't see them moving. AerLingus flights now go through FIS in Ireland, correct? I guess that leaves El Al, Virgin Atlantic, Emirates, and South African...Out of those I could see South African moving but that's about it. Who knows though. If they build a large international wing over the land where T6 and T7 currently are, I could see quite a few airlines moving there. It really all depends on their plan for the land.

This has been discussed at length on many threads on here. It is called T5i and B6 is not really "eyeing" it anymore, they are (IIRC) well into the planning stages for T6 demolition and expansion of the T5i wing from T5.
