Kennedy Airport New York will later this week see the official opening of Delta Air Lines new main home in Terminal 4. Sadly this means the demolishing of its former quarters at the futuristic old Pan Am Terminal 3. For the future all international services will use the brand new US$1.4bn facility whilst domestic flights, and that includes Honolulu, are housed in Terminal 2. A major feature will be an open air rooftop executive lounge, a first for the airport in the modern era.
Out of the UK the Atlanta-based airline will offer this summer three daily Boeing 767-300 services from Heathrow to New York and a daily 767 from Manchester. Dublin has 10 flights per week with a mixture of both 767 and 757, whilst Shannon is daily with the 757. Both the Irish airports offer US customs and immigration pre-boarding, a real bonus given the US airports' current poor reputation for arrival clearance. It can be up to three hours at Miami! www.delta.com
