John F Kennedy International Airport:
airplanes burn kerosene which is very dirty and pollutes the air. pregnant woman breathe the air and the fine particulate (toxins)matter gets into the mother lungs and right into the blood stream into the unborn fetus. and you get autism spectrum disorders. so every time you fly your contributing to the epidemic. check it out for your self. the highest rates of autism in the US are also next to the busiest airports. Hydrocarbons are linked to autism. living down wind from a airport will increase a pregnant woman's chance of having child with autism spectrum. do your own research and ck it out for yourself. happy flying
Not a fun place to transfer after an overnight international flight. Shift change at customs happens at 6:00, and the customs line did not move for 1/2 hour, as it grew longer and longer. Have to reclear security to transfer from the international terminal to a domestic flight at terminal 3, and construction made things painfully slow there (once we all found a way in).
Choose any other airport, even Atlanta or Chicago.
An 85-year-old woman said she was injured and humiliated when she was strip-searched at an airport after she asked to be patted down instead of going through a body scanner.
Transport security officials have denied allegations by Lenore Zimmerman, who said she was taken to a private room and made to take off her clothes after she asked to forgo the screening because she was worried it would interfere with her defibrillator. She missed her flight and had to take one two-and-a-half hours later, she said.
"I'm hunched over. I'm in a wheelchair. I weigh under 110lb (50kg)," she said. "Do I look like a terrorist?"
But in a statement the Transportation Security Administration said no strip search had been carried out.
"While we regret that the passenger feels she had an unpleasant screening experience, TSA does not include strip searches as part of our security protocols and one was not conducted in this case," the statement read.
Zimmerman was dropped off by her son at JFK airport in New York for a 1pm flight on Tuesday to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on JetBlue, she said. She arrived at the ticket counter at about 12.20pm and headed for security in a wheelchair, her metal walker in her lap.
She said she had been traveling to Florida for at least a decade and had never had a problem being patted down until now. "I worry about my heart, so I don't want to go through those things," she said, referring to the advanced image technology screening machines at the airport.
As a result, she said, she was taken into the private screening room by a female agent and made to strip.
"Private screening was requested by the passenger, it was granted and lasted approximately 11 minutes," the TSA said. "TSA screening procedures are conducted in a manner designed to treat all passengers with dignity, respect and courtesy and that occurred in this instance."
The private screening was not recorded.
Jonathan Allen, a TSA spokesman, said a review of closed-circuit television at the airport had showed that proper procedures before and after the screening had been followed.
Zimmerman said she banged her shin during the process and it bled "like a pig,", partly because she is on blood-thinning medication. She said an emergency medical technician patched her up, but she was told to see a doctor when she arrived in Florida to make sure the wound did not get infected. There are no records indicating medical attention was called on her behalf.
"I don't know what triggered this. I don't know why they singled me out," she said.
Her son, Bruce Zimmerman, said: "My mother is a little old woman. She's not disruptive or unco-operative. I don't understand how this happened."
He said she had had an increasingly difficult time travelling, especially since her husband died a few years ago. She has two grandchildren and her older son, a doctor, died in 2007.

This has to be one of the worst airports it has ever been my misfortune to fly through. We had to queue outside in 100 degree heat to get to check as non of the automated check in booths was working. No staff to help!
Coming back - there is no direct wheel chair access from plane side to immigration meaning my wife and I were separated as she walked to immigration and I was wheeled out of the airport and backwards through customs and immigration to finally have our passports stamped.
The whole environment of the airport is dirty, dark and generally horrid, I will try really hard to never travel through here again.
cAuse it just does!!!!
