Common sense needs to apply to connection times.... 40 minutes is OK if a lot of other conditions are true... no checked luggage, a later flight that can accomodate you in the event of a mis-connect, and your own schedule flexibility... like you are not trying to make a wedding that VERY night etc. And you are not flying on Thanksgiving eve.

Personally, on an outbound adventure, like a flight to Europe, I would rather have a 3 hour layover than a 1 hour connection. Coming home, I am not so paranoid. I do not care about whether my checked luggage makes the connection, and from either JFK or ATL, there are alternative ways to get to BOS or PVD.
