RE: How Did Manhattan Airline Terminals Work?

AF still have a city terminal close to the Invalides monument in Paris. I know their airport shuttle stops in front of the terminal, but I don't know if you can actually check your bags there.

Which sadly leaves you waiting outside in the open air near Grand Central and also uses rather small buses.

I *suspect* that this is because there are fewer passengers using traditional airport-to-downtown express bus service. I think that the rise of shared-ride door to door shuttle services really cut into the market

In New York the JFK Airtrain and the EWR monorail have reduced demand for express bus service. Chances are the flat-rate JFK taxi fare has been a factor too.
