It seems major International airports assign foreign carriers gates that are at the end (furthest into the airport) of a terminal. T4 at JFK, TB terminal LAX, for example. Is there a reason for this? Or am I just generalizing.

All tenants at LAX TBIT are International carriers, so by definition they will be parked at every single gate.


I have no clue what you are getting at.

well since a lot of foreign airlines fly big planes to the US usually it may be because at the end of terminals there is usually more room for large aircraft. also if they have to park the plane at a remote stand so that another plane can use the gate then the end of the terminal is usually better.

Yes of course... but TBIT as well as T4 at JFK are furthest INTO the airport physically. Just wondering if there is any reason for the placement. tis all.

Yes, there is a reason - basically its to make you walk as, during flying your body is not pumping as hard as it should be - so in order to make the blood go through, after a long flight you will always be parked at the furthest gate. You will also notice on short flights, you will be parked closer as there is no real need to get the circulation flowing...

You're just generalizing -- take IAD and ORD for example, where the international flights are in their own building right past security.

IT really depends how many facilities an airport has for international flights. Many airports have an "international" terminal where all foreign flights arrive by a US or foreign airline. Sometimes this is a section of a terminal or a separate teminal. AT MIA, LAX and JFK which have so many international flights it all depends where the particular airlines facilities are. AT LAX & JFK there are several FIS areas, it all depends which terminal your airline uses.

AT LAX their are two areas used by foreign airlines, Terminal 2 and TBIT. AA, UA and DL have their own FIS facilites within their own terminals at LAX.

AT JFK many foreign airlnes use terminal 4, the IAB replacement. Many also use terminals 1,3, 7 and 8. Terminals 2, 5 and 6( being demolished) are for domestic flights only.
