The 1100 Tour

I resisted sneak peek tours all summer so I’m pumped for my first glimpse of T5. So far, my first thought is that this is the first mall I’ve ever gone through security for. This marketplace doesn’t even look like an airport! More first impressions to come…

Donuts with tongs! – 10:47 a.m.

Hi this is Eddie with the Care Team! Today’s event is really about one thing: the food. My favorite part so far is the spread of donuts from Dunkin’ right when you walk in. Choices include jelly donuts, glazed, chocolate and my favorite: the pink frosted with sprinkles! The best part is that they are […]

A loooong walk – 7:50 a.m.

Wear comfy shoes: you’ll need ‘em if arriving at T5 via the AirTrain. It’s a longer distance to the terminals than we’re used to , but the people movers in the new skywalk help slice some time off your commute. Check out this amazing interior!
