N621DL followed by LOT's SP-LPF, then a Lufthansa A340, an Aer Lingus A330 and so goes the line up. Also tucked back there is a 747 and the DL MD-80 can be seen in the distance. But you are only viewing a portion of the queue line which loops around the runway and back around JFK's terminals. The dog days of summer at JFK with the Empire State Building in the distance. The culprit? Weather delays have plagued the tri-state area this evening.

Great Photo. SP-LPF is ex Air NZ as ZK-NCF. I flew on her many times. Good to see she is still in service and visitng some new places other than Asia, Pacific and West Coast of the USA

Always impressive to see so many aircrafts. But why is the the aircraft of this photo a 767 and not the 757 in front?

Very good shot. But I guess LOT's 767 is the 2nd one in row. Can we identify the 1st one?

I think that A330 is an Aer Lingus.

Very good pic illustrating how busy JFK is :)
By the way - "N621DL followed by LOT's SP-LPF" - Boeing 752 Delta Air Lines reg N621DL is Followed by LOT Boeing 767 so it means that LOT aircraft is taxiing behind Delta, is the 2nd in row :]

I doubt the pilot of the Delta Airlines 757 even knows that there are so many planes behind him/her!

Maybe they New York Port Authority should change the law, LaGuardia Airport should allow some transatlantic flights to solve the congestion problem.

I would be pissed off I were a passenger on the last plane in that line.

By the way, the line up is weird: First, a small 752. Then a bigger 763. Then a bigger and longer A346. Then it becomes smaller with the EI A333. And so on.

Good photo.

We waited around one and a half hour for take off this summer in JFK. This is what it must have been looked like.

I wonder how many pounds of thrust could be put out by all of those engines!
