American opened its Kennedy terminal in August 2007. At an opening ceremony, CEO Gerard Arpey called the $1.3 billion terminal "one of the biggest, boldest and most expensive projects in American Airlines history." The airy, imposing structure has 65-foot ceilings, 84 staffed ticketing positions, three passenger lounges and 36 gates. Today, American and American Eagle offer 117 daily departures from JFK, making it a relatively small hub in terms of departures. But 31 of the destinations are international. The cornerstone is New York-London/Heathrow service, which, during the day, is nearly hourly, given that American is now able to coordinate schedules and pricing with partner British Airways. Other international destinations include Paris, Rome, Madrid, Zurich, Brussels, Buenos Aires, Rio, and Tokyo-Narita, with Tokyo-Haneda service planned.
