One More Reason Why I Love Airports: Food at the Gate

Ok, I admit it, I don’t do a lot of business traveling (ok, none), so I don’t actually fly that much. Perhaps this is why I love almost every aspect of plane travel (seriously, I still think it’s appropriate to dress up to fly). And now I have another reason to love airports: Terminal 5 at JFK (the JetBlue one) now offers flyers the opportunity to order food right to the gate. Yup, no longer will you have to wander around the food court agonizing over where to buy that $10 bagel and $4 coffee—now your food will be brought directly to you by the happiest delivery guys in the world! I await the first story of someone missing their flight because they just had to have that egg and cheese sandwich.
