    Probably the best terminal in JFK. Granted that's not saying much, since the bar is very low. I liked how (relatively) welcoming the international arrival section was. It was clean and modern.

    Don't wait in line 🚶🏼🚶🏼🚶🏼 for Starbucks. The Ben and Jerry's by Gate 25 serves 🌲🌲🌲 Green Mountain coffee ☕️ and there's no line. 👍🏼

    Healthy breakfast option = multiple places that offer oatmeal, including Piazza, Jamba Juice, Starbucks, and Cibo Express. I recommend Cibo for fast and decent and you can pair it with mixed fruit.

    Check out the Lacoste shop near Gate 7. Good deal on T-Shirt. Duty free. Free Wi-Fi and very pleasant terminal. No doubt. Jet Blue is among the top airlines serving the US and the Caribbean.

    T5 was designed by choreographer Jerry Mitchell & architect David Rockwell. The design eliminates criss-crossing & opts for circles & airy atriums. Free wifi, good food & plentiful places to plug-in.

    Nicest terminal I've flown through in the US and definitely on par with the best internationally too. Just be tactical about moving through the Dunkin' Donuts area. It can get a little hairy at times.

    Across from Gate 28 is the T5 Rooftop, a post security outdoor space and pet relief area.

    The terminal offers the best atmosphere with FREE WiFi and plenty of options for last-minute gifts or pre-flight meals or drinks. Check out the kids play area.

    The Jet Blue hometown terminal in NYC is absolutely the best - free WIFI, great food, entertainment on surprise dates, and friendly staff - come early to this party!

    Flying in the a.m.? Hit up Gate 18/19 - Illy has great coffee and Balthazar pastries; re:vive has heartier breakfast options.

    This is how it should be done: JetBlue has a beautifully renovated terminal and they provide free WiFi and plenty of good, even healthy food options. Nice job.

    These charging stations with many outlets and plenty of seating will make me choose Jet Blue over other airlines when flying out of JFK from now on

    The sit down dining options in the terminal are good enough that getting to the airport early and having a relaxed meal before you fly is an option. It's also a great way to start a flight.

    When the bag drop off line is RIDICULOUSLY long everywhere, check to see if the full service line is shorter. There are two Check-In areas. Saved me 5x time this morning. Sitting at my gate :)

    Jonesing for a quick cup of coffee? Skip the long line at Dunkin Donuts and hit up the self-serve station. Good thinking D&D!

    I feel like this is the best terminal! They finally opened Starbucks near 23-27 gate. The Wi-Fi is free. Downside is that it is pretty far from air train.

    If you don't have time or money for one of the restaurants, hit the food court's hot bar. Self-serve is fast, there are always tasty options, and you end up getting more food for less money!

    One of the nicer terminals at JFK, well any US airport + it's super cool to be in the shadows of original TWA Terminal... sleek and modern check-in area, spacious walkways, plus an outdoor garden!!!

    Even the smallest interior details -- ticket counters, chairs, signs, and telephone booths -- of Eero Saarinen’s 1962 design were intended to complement the terminal’s gull-winged shell exterior.

    Head down to Gate 28 for access to the rooftop patio. Just a bit quieter and less busier than other areas in the airport. The fresh air is nice. Still no smoking.

    The best airline terminal ever. A singing glass cleaner and another cleaner coming to collect rubbish at each table. They make me very happy.

    Grab a bottle of wine at one of the six sit-down restaurants and they'll let you take it on your flight to finish it off!

    The booze sold at the bars by gates 22 & 16 are pretty cheap. And they even give you plastic cups to let bring your "drinks" on the plane with you. =P

    Hungry? Got 30 minutes before your flight? Go to CIBO sandwich counter, order a Boars Head smoked turkey & brie sandwich on ciabatta w/ tomato, red onions, & honey mustard. Prepare to be amazed.

    Elevator music, be damned. JetBlue travelers can now use Rockbot in the airline’s high-tech terminal to pick the songs that play over the loud speakers. Read more

    Only laptops need be removed from baggage during security check. Tip: leave the laptop home and bring an tablet. Left my iPad in the bag and went right though!

    People, Deep Blue. They'll crank you through (really quite excellent) sushi in 15 minutes while you wistfully recall the original dingy, defunct Deep Blue at Terminal 6.

    In the center atrium food court there's a hot bar similar to Whole Foods. Salmon teriyaki and two sides for $7! Best meal deal.

    Go to the far left food court station to get a great omelette or bagel sandwich (both w/toast or homefries) for breakfast. Order on the touch screen monitors.

    Best bang for your buck meal is at the Thai-ish restaurant near the pizza place. Everything else is overpriced for no reason (as expected).
