    T5 Comes Alive: JetBlue's new Terminal 5 opens at...

    JetBlue's new Terminal 5 opens at JFK today, and archicritic James Russell is lukewarm on it, but he likes the humanity inserted into the security process: "JetBlue claims it's the largest checkpoint in the country, and some nice details reduce the usual stockyard anxiety. Frequent travelers can select lines that bypass those with children or otherwise need to move more slowly. Rubber flooring feels more comfortable under shoeless feet. A long bench beyond the X-ray scanners allows disheveled passengers to regroup after a pat-down." [Bloomberg]
