Terminals 2 and 3 need to be razed to the ground and never spoken of again. While I might miss the "flying saucer" roof of Terminal 3's entrance hall that is the only thing that any sane person would possibly regret losing when this atrocity is finally replaced. As if it weren't outdated and uncomfortable and just terribly laid out for its current capacity and security procedures Delta has clearly given up on any pretence of trying to maintain the facility. To call it filthy and falling apart would be a bit like saying the sun is bright or basketball players are tall. Check-in security bathrooms waiting areas - all of it just atrocious. Whenever I'm choosing flights out of NYC I prefer to fly out of JFK because of the transportation but if the flight is Delta I always have to hesitate just knowing the ordeal I'm in for on the ground. Terminal 7 is the only other part of JFK that even comes close in decrepitude and that terminal is relatively servicable! Terminals 5 and 8 are superb (other than a really long walk from the airtrain to T5) and 1 and 4 aren't too shabby either. AirTrain is fast comfortable and efficient. Long Island Railroad from Jamaica is fastest and most comfortable connection though I'd advise tourists to familiarize themselves with transportation routes and options before arriving.
