In Conversation: Seeking to make sense of New York airport decisions

RGN contributing editor John Walton is in conversation with New Yorker Jason Rabinowitz, director of airline research at Routehappy, about New York’s three, four, five or six airports (depending on how you count them), the #PaxEx in the world’s largest aviation market, and future plans from New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

What’s going on with “third world” LaGuardia? Why is JFK still a mess? Is the Port Authority making things worse? Will we ever see decent public transportation to the airports? How do the airlines at JFK, Newark, LaGuardia and elsewhere line up? Will Norwegian’s Stewart operation be a Ryanair-style “New York-ish” success? And what needs to happen for change to be possible in the future?
