I'm currently in front of gate 210 in ONT waiting on JetBlue to take me to JFK.

The ONT terminal is nice in a late-90s shopping mall sort of way, but the layout is horrible with one long linear line of gates so you have to walk miles. Additionally, there are no electrical power outlets near the seating, you have to sit on the floor in the middle of the walkway.

At least the wireless is free.

Oh yeah, there's an ant problem here too.

Elvis Telecom (Chris Barrus), Friday, 23 July 2004 04:47 (11 years ago) Permalink

Hell yes, it's ant season. Mine's coming for a stay next week.

Have a good time in NYC, Elvis.

There's a LOT of ants here. If this was anything smaller than a giant airport terminal building we'd be re-enacting Phase IV here.

What kind of ants and what's the nature of your trip?

jim wentworth (wench), Friday, 23 July 2004 05:10 (11 years ago) Permalink

Standard-sized house ants.

Going to NYC to see JBR, take more of my stuff out in advance of the October move, and to go see Devo & the Yeah Yeah Yeahs(as mentioned on this thread)

I also win because I was able to score an exit row seat at the last minute. Hooray for extra leg room!

Elvis Telecom (Chris Barrus), Friday, 23 July 2004 05:18 (11 years ago) Permalink

Leg room is a big plus So's the Devo date. Exactly when are they playig?

jim wentworth (wench), Friday, 23 July 2004 05:26 (11 years ago) Permalink

Friday night in Central Park with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. There's an ILM thread about it.

Anyway, getting on the plane now

Make that 100, and you'd be right.

(Wish I'd actually thought to look for this thread on Thursday, when I was actually in an airport.

I'll be in two airports next week. One in Canada! Calgary! I've never been to Canada before. I'll be there for all of an hour!

oh no, I wasn't suggesting that this thread isn't valid, just noting the confluence.

xp get Wired. Wired's the quintessential airport magazine.

Adam In Real Life (nordicskilla), Thursday, 25 August 2005 21:20 (10 years ago) Permalink

eww!! i don't think i've ever bought an issue of wired!!

s1ocki (slutsky), Thursday, 25 August 2005 21:21 (10 years ago) Permalink

I LIKE wired!

Adam In Real Life (nordicskilla), Thursday, 25 August 2005 21:21 (10 years ago) Permalink

really? is it good? i guess i've read some wired articles online... but BUYING a magazine about the internet always seems like a waste of money!

s1ocki (slutsky), Thursday, 25 August 2005 21:22 (10 years ago) Permalink

it's not about the internet, it's about science! and they have one or two really good writers (and some terrible ones).

can i buy an issue of mondo 2000 instead?

I mean, it IS kind of embarassing, but I enjoy it.

xp yes

Adam In Real Life (nordicskilla), Thursday, 25 August 2005 21:23 (10 years ago) Permalink

well i'll totally buy it if the VF isn't there. also the entertainment weekly this week looks boring!! it's like a summer wrap-up issue, fuck that, i don't wanna read past tense versions of the articles they've been writing since may!!

s1ocki (slutsky), Thursday, 25 August 2005 21:25 (10 years ago) Permalink

what about a foreign newspaper?

Adam In Real Life (nordicskilla), Thursday, 25 August 2005 21:28 (10 years ago) Permalink

Remember s1ocki, it's the end of winter down there. But don't be surprised to see lots of long stockinged legs even with the winter coats.

was in JFK last night, transfer from a domestic to an international flight; worst airport I've ever been in and I've been in some airports. Useful signage nonexistent and the food prices were hilarious.

I"m going from SEA to ORD today and the airport is full of DOTA 2 fans (plus one guy in an Evil Genius shirt, could have been a player) and tweens in Taylor Swift t-shirts (her show was in Seattle last night). Pretty crazy to see so many young kids who had traveled to Seattle for entertainment.

JFK has six terminals, each separate and distinct, which were built at different times and vary widely in quality and appeal. You may have gotten a bad one.

Terminal 5 (JetBlue + some Aer Lingus flights) is the nicest.

Josefa, Monday, 10 August 2015 14:55 (3 weeks ago) Permalink

We landed at terminal 4 but had to get to terminal 1 and there were no signs on how to do that. The only way we knew we were even in terminal 4 was that we asked, and we also had to line up and ask to find out where our connection would be leaving from. Ultimately we had to take a bus, leave security, go through some other building (where the pizza vendors were helpful at least in directing us), then go outside, turn left (still no helpful signs) and then finally see a terminal 1 sign at yet another building. That terminal was ugly and had $9 gözleme but at least it was where we needed to be. It was great.

And to boot, we finally got our luggage today, 9 days after leaving JFK.

Both NYC airports are circles of hell iirc (and I spent about 5 hours in LGA the other week.) For my money you really should drive to Newark. Or Idlewild ffs, which frankly is on the LIRR so sign me up.

When I think of JFK I think of io with fervent love. She rescued me from two potential nights in that place, fed and watered and entertained me. Hoping she gets stuck in Pearson or Billy Bishop soon so that I can return the favour.

is Billy Bishop the awesome one you'd have to row to rescue her from?

I have a respect for anyone who is already asleep by the time the plane takes off. Lady next to me did that early this year. She also had a dog that magically showed up when we landed, it was completely in stealth mode the whole flight.
