As a frequent traveller, I've been to many airports all around the world.
JFK is definitely one of my favourites, and let me share why:
- the navigation is clear, you won't find yourself walking around and struggling to find a gate or anything else you might need
- the WiFI is available at the whole airport & it works fast enough for web, taxi or Youtube. "Simply works" is the definition of WiFi I am looking for at the airport
- the service is great! Fast check-ins and luggage delivery are not the only advantages - you feel that all of the airport employees are here to help & assist you, you won't be left alone when you need support
- enough comfortable seats to await for your flight - it won't take much time to find one
For many people the JFK airport is the first thing they see & interact with when they come to US - so the airport is the representation of the country it's located in. To my opinion, JFK is doing a great job!
