As one who uses this terminal for international travel, I'm not impressed. Yes, I'm relieved to get rid of Terminal 3. But there are several remaining issues:

- Transportation to and from the city takes way too long and is clunky. Heathrow, Singapore, Zurich, Shanghai and many other cities have fast, beautiful trains. NYC is building a new LIEE line but it still will take 20 minutes just to get to the terminal head
- The hiring pool and training of employees at JFK is pathetic. These are some of the rudest, most unsympathetic workers you will ever encounter from check-in to Customs. If NYC really wants to make feel visitors feel welcome, they need to hire and train better.
-Baggage is always late, delayed and easily lost. See nr. 2
-The other terminals at JFK (United, American, JetBlue) are just as good or better (OK not Terminal 1) so this just catches Delta up
-Customs takes an hour plus on average. I have Global Entry but used to spend lots of time in line. Pity the foreigners who come here...
-Security takes forEVER to get through. I like the European system: security at each gate vs. one for all
