Expect longer delays at New York JFK March to July

Those who've flown to or from New York JFK airport know all about lengthy delays which are legendary amongst frequent flyers. Yesterday came news of at least 4 months of even longer delays as the biggest runway will get rebuilt.

Cranky Flier spells out what is happening and what it means. The upshot is hope weather conditions are right whenever you fly through JFK, and if possible try to avoid it for the spring and early summer period. After a couple of years of mainly avoiding New York and USA in general it looks like I picked a bad time to use New York as a base for some of my (northern hemisphere) spring & summer trips.
