    Despite some much-welcome improvements, the three major New York area-airports—John F. Kennedy, LaGuardia and Newark-Liberty International Airport—lag well behind most other major U.S. airports in amenities.

    That's according to a report released Wednesday by the New York-based Global Gateway Alliance, an advocacy group hoping to draw attention to the problems facing New York-area airport airports, which are operated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and serve about 110 million passengers a year.

    The report compared 15 different amenities across 15 major U.S. airports.

    "Since millions of people are spending so much more time in airports, we want airlines and airport operators to think not just about how to move more planes and passengers, but how to provide a better experience as well," said Global Gateway Alliance chairman Joe Sitt.

    These topics crack me up as they are too true! I think our airport here in LAS is tragic, but the JFK and especially LGA aren't lacking amenities, they are just lacking.
