Who Has The Best Terminal At JFK

Tue Apr 20, 2004 9:58 am

I ve only been to JFK twice, flying both AA and UA. In my opinion AA has the better terminal of the two, but what are the other airline terminals like, AA has the largest amount of gates at JFK dont they?

T-1 and T4 are the best, the others are 40 + years old. BA's T-7 went under a refurbishment and renovation and looks much better, that's the Terminal UAL is located.

AA is currently tearing down their current Terminals (8 & 9) and replacing the two with a single modern 39 gate terminal.

Currently T4 is the best. T8 will be just as good if not better!!!

Definitely DL's T3.....  Big thumbs up


Has to be TWA's old terminal and T1 a close second (very cool check-in areas). Guess it all depends on what you're looking for in a terminal.

T-4 and T-1 are modern and beautiful.

However, Delta's T-3 is really the best. It's and interesting design. U enter the building from the center and cross over the departures roadway in the jetbridge to the airplane.

The TWA terminal was pretty cool--but they never kept it in good shape. DL has updated T3 many times--very cool.

I'd say the British Airways/United/America West terminal (T-7)...I flew in there for the first time a week ago, and it was really nice, and you could have eaten Sushi off of the floors there too...that said, I have never been in either T-1 (ex-Eastern) or T-4 (IAB)...T-2 and T-3 (Delta) are underrated, very spacious with modern signage, although could use an update, T-6 is nice as long as you don't have to go to the baggage claim area, and T-8/9 is, IMO, the worst-looking terminal in the airport by far, good thing it is being replaced...it's about time...

I actually like T6, used by B6. It has a cool retro look about it.
