Delta Connection At JFK

Thu Feb 15, 2007 2:59 pm

Do all Delta Connection flights leave from Gate 24/25 from Terminal 2 these days? Is that the only place they leave from?

How many RJs can they park/board there?

Yes I think all the Connection flights leave from the end gates at Terminal 2. I was just through there last week and I can't remember how many parking spaces are there. I think it was somewhere around 16. Not all of the flights are CRJ's. Freedom is flying Dash-8's out of there also.

Its a clusterf*** to say the least. DL is in desparate need of improved facilities at JFK, especially if they really plan on making a go of a true hub there and competing with CO across the river.

I don't know, but I was going out of Gate 25, there are quite a few stands at the end of this long hallway thing. Probably what, 6 regionals at Gate 25?

I would say they already have made a go of it, and are competing vigorously with CO. You are right though, they do need a new terminal, and it is my udnerstanding they are close to a deal on building a new one. The problem is the logistics of doing so while keeping their old terminal in place for the near term.

They leave from the beginning of the old worldport, too. Gate 18, I think? Most leave from 23/24/25, though.

No, I think they have discontinued DL Connection from this gate and have moved it to the other terminal.
