The structure is all up except the far end of the concourse where they’re finishing up demolition of the old rotunda. 2-3 connector, new head house, consolidated TSA, and likely some gates should open next spring.

It is really comical how some people think NYC wont be bigger than it was pre-covid. Been here for decades and the people that have "left" by and large moved to the suburbs. Minimal exceptions actually moved out to states NOT named New Jersey or Connecticut. There are countless recent college grads and many more coming that cannot wait for the opportunity to work in NYC. Traffic is nearly back to pre-covid levels and manhattan is already bustling with the weather getting better. Once everything is fully open it will be as congested as ever.

Delta's presence in NY will be bigger than it ever has. JFK and EWR will be redone a la LGA over the next 5-10 years with more gate space as well.

Some people lack the ability to see thru short term trends. WB FO and 7ER Captain went shockingly junior this bid and alot of it was due to Intl uncertainty. When Intl comes roaring back those same folks who thought New York is "Dying" will be complaining they can't hold xxx because of "out of seniority" pilots [emoji23]

In 2007 when I retired NYC ER had 36 destinations just in Europe. Commutable 3 day trips with 24 hr layovers were the envy of the industry and they spilled well into super junior dudes.
It would be great if you turn out to be correct on your forecast!

That international uncertainty has been a HUGE QOL boost for WB reserve. I've gotten 1-2 SC per month and 1 trip every other month at full reserve guarantee. Sadly my recency expired and I'm not scheduled for bounces until late next month. I get why 7ER A went junior over the uncommutable domestic stuff, but WB B is better than ever. I'd like to thank those senior to me who dodged the uncertainty of our international operation.

I'll be back to complain this time next year when I can't get 7ER A because of those out of seniority Captains. Until then I'll sit out the domestic staffing disaster and enjoy the international uncertainty.

My best year of flying at Delta was on probation as NYC 7ER B from 2007-2008. We had fantastic crews, great layovers, commutable trips and everyone liked their job. It was a game to hit as many of the 36 destinations as possible. Any repeat layovers went straight to the swap board in exchange for a new destination. Ahh the good ol days.

NYC 7ER in '07 - '08 was without a doubt the best flying of my career. Pyramids, Nile cruise, Kremlin, Budapest, crewroom parties in BOM, 72 hrs in NCE ....
