Re: When Will JFK extend terminal 4A?

The CR2's will be phased out by moving more 700/900/170/175's into NYC, so you'll just have bigger RJ's Yes but on the same token some of the "heavy" RJ flying will be replaced with 717 and eventually the CS100. I would expect to see that more out of JFK where frequency isn't as big of a ...

Re: When Will JFK extend terminal 4A?

T4b has around 53-55 depending on configuration Isn't it more like 30-32 gates? How many widebody gates have split parking spots and jetways for narrowbodies? Correct. OP probably said 55 because the B gates go up to B55 but they don't start at B1. The first B gate is B18 but that is the gate for t...

By comparison, t4A has 6 gates, while T4b has around 53-55 depending on configuration: Why hasn't T4A been extended? In the evening, there are a pool of wide bodies that surround t4a but don't have an airbridge: This could easily be solved if t4a adds 4-5 more extra long jetways such as at heathrow'...

This is due to the lower range/lighter body but fills the mission for Europe/South America well. The 787 is wel...
