    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.

    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.

    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.
