Not yet. WN has 5 gates at the satellite concourse. Come early 2019, once the Terminal B expansion and renovations are done, they will gain those 5 mainline gates. WestJet will still operate out of their single gate.

At JFK alone you have 10-11 daily flights and 4 carriers on JFK-MEX. Once B6 enters JFK-MEX that means 5 carriers a...
