Jake Redman of will live-tweet the opening ceremony of the new terminal. The terminal, under construction since November 2010, replaces Delta’s aging facility in Terminal 3., a website dedicated to providing consumers with information about the best travel upgrades and what their points really get them.

The time to replace JFK's Terminal 3 passed years ago. Getting to your flight has become a game of avoiding roof-leaks and swooping birds.

On May 24th, Jake Redman will live-tweet the grand opening of Delta Airline’s new home in Terminal 4 of New York’s JFK International Airport for popular travel advice site His Twitter feed will offer live commentary on the ceremony and the facility itself. Mr. Redman says the change is long past due, "The time to replace JFK's Terminal 3 passed years ago. Getting to your flight has become a game of avoiding roof-leaks and swooping birds."

The move from Terminal 3 to Terminal 4 gives Delta a more solid footing at JFK. New gates, expanded check-in, and a 28,000-square-foot Sky Club will rival what American has done in Terminal 8. The new Delta Sky Club at Terminal 4 is the largest Delta facility of its kind in the world. Loyal Delta customers will enjoy access to state-of-the-art shower facilities, a bar with food service, and the open-air Sky Deck lounge.

The check-in facilities in Terminal 4 are designed to get customers through faster than ever. Check-in facilities include additional U. S. Customs and Border Protection inspection booths. The new booths allow passengers to get on international flights with much less hassle than they could through the facilities in Terminal 3. Terminal 4 also features upgrades for arriving passengers, such as a newly designed baggage claim area with additional carousels for faster bag pickup.

Another notable addition in Terminal 4 is the dual taxiway. The new taxiway allows two airplanes to travel between the runway and terminal at the same time. This minimizes the time flights spend taxiing between takeoff and landing, shaving valuable minutes off every flight.

The expansion, which began in November of 2010, is officially completed at the ceremony on May 24th. The event is a way for Delta Airlines to connect with fans and frequent flyers and show off the new facility in its entirety. Mr. Redman and other members of the press will tour the facility upon completion of the ceremony.

The Twitter feed (and other social feeds) will be fed to a special page during the event. The page will go live the morning of the event.
