Finally... it's come up here on the forum several times and I've been wondering what the latest is with the construction at Kennedy as well. This is from Jetnews employee questions and answers (11Nov04).
"Q. When will our new terminal at JFK be completed and opened?
"A. All things remaining as they are today, we look forward to having a portion of the new terminal open, late Spring - early summer 2005. When the new terminal is completed, we will close and demolish terminal 9. Concourse "C" gates will also open at this time.
"The new facility (modified for budget cuts) is currently expected to be completed in 2006 or 2007. At that point we expect to move completely from terminal 8."
