Interesting Evening @ JFK

Thu Feb 23, 2006 8:19 am

I took my student on our weekly visit to JFK this evening and had some very nice pleasant surprises.

1 - QF WUNALA DREAMING was sitting on the tarmac in all her glory at T7. This was the first time that I have seen her at JFK in a very long time and wish I had my camera with me to take shoots. How often does she come to JFK?

2 - B6, A320 was parked at T4 deboarding. My guess was that it came from the Dominican or Bermuda, if they have started flights yet.

3 - Upon exiting the airport out by long term parking, we saw a nice JAL Boeing 747 coming in towards 13L.

4 - Last but certainly not least, saw AF Flight 023-B772 boarding and loading cargo/food at T1. This will hopefully be might next flight in about 2.5 months.

This was truly one of our better nights.
Je pense, donc je vole Concorde!

Well B6 has their SJU flights going in and out of T4 untill the new Temp Terminal opens up by May 1 to ease the stress in T6 so that is why that was there, along with their once a day arrival from STI that goes there. BDA starts May 4th for them so that is not it.

Do you know if Jet Blue uses a gate at T4 or if they board and deboard passengers from the tarmac? I will be flying Jet Blue to and from JFK to SJU in two weeks.

For now a gate, usually on the far end of the B concourse (B28, 29, 30 & 31). However in the summer, it's anyone's guess. IAT is supposed to be overrun by airlines.

They will be out of T4 by May 1st. And I believe they use a gate, in the morning T4 is pretty dead and then later on I am sure there is time to get one Gate, it isn't always full.
