How do you explain BA with United, AF with LF at terminal 1, Swiss is in Terminal 4 not 1.
SAA is still in terminal 3
/UA is easy - they had a codeshare relationship (one of the very first) way back when (90's I think, poss. late 80's), and SA
)">UA moved into the BA
terminal at JFK
/LH were part of the consortium of airlines that jointly developed JFK
T1, and so use the joint facility. I'm pretty sure LH
would prefer a joint Star Alliance facility with SA

would like to join up with SA
)">DL, but the SA
)">DL terminals at JFK
suck big time, and T1 is pretty nice, so I think AF
will battle to the death to see who keeps T1 and who goes elsewhere - may be they will both stay. It's a bit of a tie, because LH
(Star partner) at T1, while AF
is in the SA
)">DL terminal because of the codeshare with SA

when that codeshare was on, and before that they were in the IAB
. Who knows where they'll go, maybe if a dedicated Star facility opens they'll go there.
It would make sense probably for the new SA

I think LX
