If we parse this release a little bit:

Global tourism initiative + CEO international airline+JFK= multiple flights and destinations and therefore an airline using JFK as an international hub or flying to JFK from multiple destinations

This must me either AA or DL's CEO, or BA's CEO announcing their new non-UK Euro routes to JFK.

All I can come up with right now.

Quoting DLPMMM (Reply 2):

They sure as heck would not have DL making a major announcement at Terminal 9, it's either AA or BA.

Well had I been thinking properly I would have seen the reference and looked up who was located at the terminal. Obvious clue.

Thanks folks -- perhaps a record in putting a post out there and quickly getting a relevant answer before the thread descended into an off-topic debate.

WOW!

AA trying to get a piece of DL's action? Aircraft coming from where?

Is AA (and possibly other airlines) ordering the A380 and then JFK runways etc. will be set up to handle massive A380 influx?

Just a guess.

I'm guessing this is probably the international expansion that American was talking about launching from JFK.
