    Unbelievable! It's shocking to think about what could have happened had the speeding Lufthansa Airbus 340 collided with the EgyptAir Boeing 777. icon_sad.gif

    Kennedy Airport is the worst airport on the face of this planet...avoid it whenever possible.

    I'm sorry, but after I read this article, I saw a link to another article on the side and cracked my ass up:

    Really!?!? It seems logical since I was going to Brooklyn. No subway goes to LaGuardia. So fuck that shit. Newark is great but only if you're coming in and out from Manhattan. Otherwise it's a huge journey too.

    Oh boy where to begin...Kennedy Airport takes the cake for worst airport...going through customs and security at Kennedy?!?!? I swear, that airport had to be like a prototype to hell or something because they are beyond rude and impatient. This lady who worked in customs was filing her nails and got upset when I asked her a question. Newark Airport is my hometown airport but no better than Kennedy because you have to make sure you eat a meal right before you fly because with the exception of one terminal, once you get past security, your food choices are extremely limited and their flights are always delayed. I'm actually gonna start to fly to Atlantic City now to go back home to Jersey to avoid Newark. LaGuardia is a whole different story, the only thing it really has going for it is it's closeness to Manhattan and low fares, other than that, a complete last resort. I have never taken off on time from ANY of these airports, always either delayed or number 26 for take off...All 3 New York area airports suck royally in their own special ways. Sometimes I dread going home due to that fact....

    I've been in several international airports on several continents and I have to say JFK is by far the worst I've ever been, even much busier airports like Heathrow and Frankfurt are lot more hassle free and provide world class service with world class facilities, It's actually a joy to see them, JFK really needs to improve efficiency and manage itself effectively.

    That is SCARY!
    When I flew into LaGuardia in May...we didn't hit the runway soon enough and they had to "slam the breaks"...you could see the wings of the plane vibrating from the force pressures. I thought for certain we were going to leap the mound right into the water!

    I fly in and out of JFK all the time. Almost never have problems. Then again, all my flights are domestic, not international. I like Virgin America, and JFK is the only NY airport they serve.
