Delays up at JFK Airport despite runway renovation
NEW YORK (WABC) -- Delays at John F. Kennedy International Airport have apparently gotten worse despite a costly runway renovation.
The Port Authority has spent $376 million on the fix.
Planners said the move would reduce the time spent leaving the gate and save passengers 10,000 hours a year.
But since the runway reopened in July of 2010, delays at JFK have reportedly increased by at least 1 percent.
