Why are all those international planes parked at the remote gates and not at the terminal?
A lot of them have long turnarounds at JFK
so they keep them at remote stands....For example the Emirates A345 arrives at 2PM and doesn't leave until 11:30PM
. The SQ
flight arrives around 11AM
and leaves at about 10 PM
, Varig arrives 8:30 and leaves 6:45, the Biman DC10 arrives 11:15 and leaves 11:30. NW
's 747 arrives 3:20 and overnights at JFK
leaving the next day at 2:20. The remote stands at T4
are very important.
Hope this helps.
in his photo of terminal 1 you can see the CX 343 or the 346.
Terminal 1 isn't in that photo..Nor is any CX
aircraft. Perhaps you are talking about the South African 340 at Terminal 3? If so, it looks like an A343.
The UA 744 does opperate JFK ocasonilly. sometimes in the winter. In the early mornings or the late nights. Sometimes when i go out on Jet Blue to SJU or LGB i see the UA 744 there. Last time was Jan 15.
Perhaps that was a onetime thing? It seems to me that the only time a UA
744 is at JFK
is for diversions....I sure miss the 744 operating UA
Very interesting photo. The AF 773ER usually doesnt opperate JFK and the LH 333 usually doesnt opperate JFK and there is a AM 763 at Terminal 1.
Again, Terminal 1 is not in this photo, nor are any of the aircraft you mentioned above. LH
regularly operates a 333 to JFK
773ER was on the CDG
run for about a month until they went to the CDG
route. I've never seen an AM
767 at JFK
