DELTA'S NEW JFK TERMINAL

Well I had the misfortune of oing through Delta's "new" terminal 4 at JFK for my European holiday which they've been pushing hard as so great and the like. Great, it's not.

All they've done is moved their international operatons into terminal 4 which was once known as the International Arrivals Building and abandoned terminal 3 (which I remember when it was new and the original Pan American worldport to show how old I am).

I've taken other flights out of terminal 4 over the years and the one thing they've done for departures is moved security upstairs for all passengers which used to be on both sides downstairs. No big deal there.

Now coming home, we must have been placed a mile from the immigration hall. I never walked so far in my ife. In almost every other airport I've ever been through (note almost), there's some sort of train shuttle. No provision for that We must have walked a mile...a coupe of moving walkways. The immigration/customs hall is the same as it always was. But I'll tell you, the worst that Sunday afternoon was having t get on a queue to wait 70 minutes to get a cab with all the flights from all the airlines arriving.

Just doesn't seem Delta did anybody any favors with this move but maybe just a bad experience.
