JetBlue Is Opening Its Own Farm at JFK… But Why?

Low-cost airline JetBlue Airways is opening a 24,000 square-foot “farm” at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to educate travelers about farming. Sophia Leonora Mendelsohn, the carrier’s head of sustainability, said, “We know people like green space. It’s what they have at home. Why not put that at an airport if that’s what they love and want?”

While it is also meant to improve Terminal 5’s outdoor area, the airline would like to ultimately serve items grown on its farm at terminal restaurants.

"Serve items grown on its farm at terminal restaurants?" Um... hell no! I don't want food which has been bathed in a mix of diesel & Jet A fumes with a sprinkling of de-icing fluid.

They can spend their money anyway they wish, but silly, wasteful idea.
