Security check before the concourse is the biggest improvement felt by all passengetrs in Delta’s rehab of JFK’s Terminal 4.
While I took a spin through T4 last week while heading out to Shanghai, heading first to the new Sky Club, which incidentally is quite far and there is no signage along the way, and then back to the Oasis Club, I noticed what may be prep for work to rectify one of the other passenger chokepoints and oddities of T4. Going from departures level to the concourse, passengers either trundle down the stairs or wait for elevators. No escalators.
Might I be hoping too much for this work area? Given the post-Sandy difficulty in restoring escalators throughout NYC, I am not surprised if this work was delayed. The last time I was at the AirTrain Howard Beach Station in April the escalator from the subway was still out.
If this work area is for an escalator what’s your guess as to when it is ready? What month/year/decade?
