JFK T7 Investment plans

I know it has been mentioned before about the T7 upgrade but few more details released today. Article and video in linked BT article.

Will be interesting to see how they go about the refurb while keeping the place running smoothly. Looks promising but nothing earth shattering IMO.

Graphics are awful, looks like one of those Ikea furniture web tools.

Never had any problems myself at T7 although will admit it isn't my usual East Coast airport.

Have you ever tried "fast track" security in the evening?

Not millions of pounds spent on CGI graphics but perhaps we should concentrate on the substance rather than an unecessary BA bashing opportunity?

Yes a good few times and have either been escorted to the front for being in first (very awkward) or there are maybe have been a dozen people max in front. Again though I have heard it can get backed up and hopefully somehow they either move fast track or fix the slope.

BA to invest $65mm in JFK T7 makeover

What will $65 million in improvements look like in Terminal 7 at JFK Airport in New York City? British Airways is set to spend, with improvements coming over the next two years. New lounges, check-in (premium styled after the First Wing at LHR T5), restaurants and more.



Additional photos and a video of the rendering for the new British Airways JFK T7 here.

(Link to my website; you've been warned)

Don't you think Windows XP is a bit too up-to-date for BA?

Have to say all the pictures that I have seen the terminal just looks the same, hopeful though.

Hopefully BA will develop a closer relationship with AS.
this would all be the same refurbishment promised twice before but halted in various stages of completion?
Based on that very much a believe it when we see it actually done. BA has track record on promises at JFK it does nt deliver on.
does sound like this means we won't see same terminal flights with AA if they re going to do this. (If...)

JFK T7 is a dump, so anything that will improve it can only be welcomed.

There is something about Abi Cromber that doesn't sit right with me - not sure why. "The backdrop of our aircraft, waiting to delight our customers" gave me a chuckle

Hopefully BA can make genuine improvements, much like what has been delivered in the First Wing.
