BDL should be under Boston/New England area

I forgot to add Westchester County/White Plains Airport (HPN) to the list... and now, you can discuss developments from that airport too.

From HPN:

jetBlue E190-100IGW (reg. N216JB)

Ok, the problem with the NY airports is that they are all too close together. You have flight paths all crowded into this small area and there is major congestion.

They tried to find a place for a new large airport outside the core but failed miserably in the 70's due to resident and environmental groups that waged a heavy battle against the idiotic airport authorities who had not planned for it.

A new airport is now pretty much out of the question due to lack of a place to put it. Now, they will have to hope that they can expand the current airports, which is basically a non-starter due to nimbie and resident groups.

JFK is a stupid airport. They needed to built a couple of large terminals, not this mess terminal city that takes up too much space on the airfield and makes connections difficult. Whoever thought of that plan was a dolt. So many terminals are poor and do not reflect NYC.

Actually PANYNJ is working on changing the terminal layout at JFK. They are demolishing Terminal 3 and moving the Delta operations to an expanded Terminal 4. Likewise they expanded Terminal 8 for American Airline's operations and demolished Terminal 9 in the process.

Consider, though, that the airline traffic in New York City is MASSIVE. You cannot just let one mega-airport (like Dubai) operate all of its operations, especially that the catchment area of its airports (under the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey) is large. If it were me, I would make airport operations even more efficient by bolstering its centralized air traffic operations to allow even more planes to move around its airspace efficiently and allow shorter dwell times between takeoffs and landings. Perhaps adding a runway could help alleviate the airport congestion problem, but, I think opening up the smaller airports to even more traffic (as spillovers) will also be beneficial to spread the tourist traffic wealth to other communities.

Well, at the time those older terminals were built, those were designed for the airlines that made JFK their home base... the unique terminals (especially Terminals 3 and 5) may have been in use for a long time, but those are still there as unique landmarks (and assets) to New York.

Good question. I will find out when I get a chance. You can also visit the Port Authority website for more details:

According to flightaware it seems like JFK airport is experiencing massive delays due to strong wind:

John F Kennedy Intl (KJFK) is currently experiencing inbound flights delayed at their origin an average of 53 minuter due to wind.

Doesn't JFK always have massive delays and overcrowding?

I was at JFK during June 2014. Since I had time on my side, I visited every terminal. It seemed well. LGA and EWR appeared more overcrowded and delays compared to JFK. Just my experiences.

Actually you could if there would be a political will to build a 200 million PAX airport.

I'm really surprised that building a giant artificial island in the Long Island Sound has never been seriously considered seeing how shallow the water is there (about the same depth as around KIX). You could easily build a new 8 runway airport f.e. in Smithtown Bay. Almost all flight paths would be above the Long Island Sound and thus would not bother the residents and you could easily connect the airport with Manhattan with a new highspeed rail link and new highways.

Problem with building an airport in the Long Island Sound is that the Long Island Sound itself is surrounded by some very wealthy communities (especially on the North Shore of Long Island and in Greenwich, Connecticut) not to mention the fact that it is very densely populated. When you combine that with the environmental concerns, it would effectively kill any chance putting a new airport there.

The next challenge: where else can a "new" or "replacement" airport be built to augment the services provided by Newark, LaGuardia, and JFK? I mean, EWR and JFK already serve a huge spectrum of international carriers, while LGA cannot be expanded any further unless we deal with (expensive and environmentally unsound) land reclamation...

Honestly I think it might be best to follow London's approach and encourage LCC's and other airlines to use some of the other outlying airports such as Long Island (ISP) or Stewart (SWF) and construct regional rail/high speed rail links connecting those two airports to Manhattan similar to what was done in Stansted and Gatwick. Both JFK and EWR are heavily constrained as well and can't really be easily expanded to accommodate further traffic loads.
