The Saarinen Terminal is supposed to become a conference center and surrounded by a new terminal which would become home to JetBlue, United, and other Star Alliance carriers. United is near Chapter 11 and so I do not think they will be in any position to finance a new terminal in an airport that they barely serve (SFO, SEA, LAX, LHR, NRT) and the post-9/11 environment has thrown a number of JFK projects, including the new Delta terminal into doubt.

Call me a purist but I agree with the preservationists - the terminal should be left alone, as it was designed, and used as an airline terminal...afterall, it is one of the most widely-recognized airline buildings in aviation. A proud tribute to Saarien!
