The extension, a $200 million addition to Terminal 5, is scheduled to open to travelers on Wednesday, ending the airline’s awkward arrangement that had international passengers leaving from its terminal but arriving at gates it had leased in Terminal 4, which already had a customs area.

JetBlue’s president, Robin Hayes, said that the airline would no longer have to tow empty planes back from Terminal 4. Now, JetBlue’s terminal has a glass-walled arrivals hall complete with 40 automated passport readers, a disease-control area, a lab for inspecting plants and fruit, and holding cells for suspected smugglers. And by next year, the terminal’s designer, Gensler, hopes to turn the roof of the arrivals hall into an open-air park with a dog walk, a play area for children and a few patches of grass.

Heh. I thought that was a putting green.

I like the new business class SFO to JFK. I wish they'd bring it to LGB and  SNA. 

But...DOG WALK?  Seriously??

Rich people need dog walks.

It can't possibly be worthwhile profit-wise to bring the new business class to LGB and SNA, can it?
