On May 24, Delta debuts the massive extension of Terminal 4 at New York-JFK International Airport to travelers. No need to wait that long to peek at brand-spanking-new space and its staggeringly massive 24,000-square-foot SkyClub (with first ever SkyDeck!), however; last night the airline opened a pop-up space in Soho to show off ahead of time.
The spotcalled "Delta T4 Xperience," or "T4X" for shortwill be open to the public Tuesday thru Sunday from 11am to 3pm, from now until May 22. The first level boasts exhibits to virtually "tour" the new terminal, plus a vending machine churning out Delta-branded freebies (a mirror, luggage tag, passport holder or cold drink cup). Head up to the second story for some Nespresso caffeination and a preview of the highly anticipated SkyDeck.
Now, for the really good part:

There are some 60 airlines flying into and out of New York-JFK Airport. Competition is fierce, but New York's always game for a little of that. Passengers are looking for the cheapest tickets (of course), shiniest planes, most routes and newest facilities. Come next spring,
The entire project cost is in the billions, so it's no fresh paint fixer-upper or anything; every month construction workers build $26 million worth of new stuff into Terminal 4 (that's over $1 million every workday!). Why should you care? Because Delta wants you in it, loving it and flying out of it...and soon. They are on schedule and under budget (whoa) for an opening in May 2013. Arrive early for your late spring Delta flight, because this place will warrant some checking out.

The length of Terminal 3 as viewed from its replacement: the extension of Terminal 4
Since early 2010 we've known the end was nigh. Delta plans to demolish the building after moving into their massive expansion of the neighboring Terminal 4, which will all go down in May 2013 and which we'll tell you all about tomorrow.

Fans of airport terminalswe assume that there are at least some of you out therewill want to mark your calendars for May 2013. That's the month when Delta plans to unveil their expanded Terminal 4 at JFK, which by then will have cost at least $1.2 billion and taken 4 years to build.
The terminal will have 9 new international gates, more room for everything from security to check-in, and a bevy of shops and restaurants. Delta has even published a half-preview, half-virtual tour animation, which we've helpfully embedded below, with some highlights.
The current setup at JFK has Delta's domestic flights using Terminal 2 and their international flights using Terminal 3. Among other things that forces passengers connecting internationally to navigate their way through the JFK AirTrain and then through security again, providing entertainment to the locals but a sub-optimal traveling experience for everybody else. Hopefully centralizing everything out of Terminal 4 will fix that.

Last week we revealed Deltaís plans for JFK with mixed emotions. We were a little sad to hear about the scheduled departure of Terminal 3, aka Pan Amís Worldport, to the big airport terminal in the sky, but we were also excited that we donít need to use an umbrella inside the terminalóyes, itís that bad.
