A supersized terminal – 7:47 a.m.

The first thing you notice about T5 is how huge it is. To get a sense of the scale of the place, check out these aerial shots by Helmut Faforke in Tech Ops. Check out the old TWA Terminal, the Saarinen building — it’s wild how tiny it is! Our martini-shaped terminal also dwarfs our old Terminal 6, and the BA/UA Terminal 7, too.  In a way it’s fitting that our terminal is shaped like a cocktail glass — at the stem we have a super-cool lounge/bar that overlooks the intersection of JFK’s two main runways…more on that spot later.
