See You at JFK TWA Flight Center Saturday?

“It’s JFK,” the friendly front desk manager at the Hilton Garden Inn JFK said when I mentioned the weekend disruption of JFK AirTrain closed between Federal Circle and the terminals, and numerous subway closures detailed in MTA’s The Weekender.

Delta’s ‘The Pad’ at JFK

Flying Delta at New York’s JFK Airport while Terminal 4 is rebuilt involves a lot more than the standard gates and jet bridges. Some flights are sent to ‘The Pad’ far from terminal buildings and a bus with a passenger compartment that can raise or lower sidles up to the plane and ferries passengers to…
