TWA Terminal Saved

Category: Aviation

New York: Earo Saarinen's TWA terminal at JFK is just about the coolest airport structure ever built. It's a relic of the golden age of jet travel, a reminder of the days when 747s had swanky cocktail lounges on the upper deck and 'the Jetsons' lifestyle was the expected future.

Anyway, it was about to be hit with the wrecking ball, but JetBlue and the PortAuthority have stepped up to save it.

I would like to lease the TWA terminal for a new international airlines. and keep it exactly the same way as originally design.

I too am thrilled that JetBlue will utilize this historic terminal. I had an idea. What if the origional terminal complex can be used exclusively for private jet owners?
