New York is a large city located in the eastern portion of USA. The city has very high business and tourism ratings, which may easily exceed 400 or higher each. New York will host the 1964 World Exhibition for three months and number of travellers in and out of the city will increase greatly during the three months of the Exhibition.
The default airport here is John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK).
The airport was originally known as New York International Airport when it opened in 1948. It was later renamed in 1963 in memory of John F. Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States who was assassinated in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963.
Because it is a popular starting point for many players, competition for routes can be very intense. It is generally not recommended for beginners to start at this city. If one has already made this city as a hub, then it is advisable to open routes to medium sized cities like Tampa or New Orleans for short range and Zurich or Napoli for medium to long range. In terms of cargo, the above still applies. Opening routes from New York to other larger cities can bring in huge profits. But competition can cut that down. Therefore, only open such routes if you know what you're doing. A classic thing to do is to try to take up as many routes as possible, but this may not be enough to deter competitors. It is generally better to focus and monopolise routes to medium sized cities rather than engage in competitors in large cities. Despite all this, New York City can sustain heavy competition due to very high ratings. The city's good position allows it to be linked with cities in the western United States (e.g. Los Angeles and Las Vegas), South America (e.g. Sao Paulo and Lima) and Europe (e.g. London and Istanbul).
John F. Kennedy International Airport almost always achieves maximum slot usage very quickly in the game (about 5 to 10 years). This means additional airports are necessary to meet the slot demands in this city. The additional airports also have opportunities to attain a level 8 status, which is good news for the airport owners as they can reap in huge profits as a lower credit cost. As such, it is recommended to build the second (or third) airport as soon as possible as other players may also have the same idea. Buying over the national airport from the government is also a good idea as there are massive profits to be made from owning John F. Kennedy International Airport. Sometimes, the all three available airports can attain maximum slot usage and this prevents any further routes from being established.
Recommended passenger aircraft to be used in this city should, besides having high satisfaction, be able to ferry large numbers of passengers at once. Great examples to other similar large cities include the Airbus A380 and the Boeing 747. For flights to medium sized cities, medium capacity aircraft of any range is suitable and this includes the Airbus A330, Boeing 787 and the McDonnell Douglas DC-10. Small capacity planes should be avoided as the huge number of travellers can overwhelm the limited number of seats and this may prompt the player to add additional aircraft, which leads to increased depreciation. For cargo operations, any aircraft with a high level of satisfaction at the time of purchase are suitable. However, like the passenger operations, avoid small capacity aircraft to other medium or large sized cities to keep depreciation to a minimum.
A player can take advantage of the 1964 World Exhibition by adding temporary planes and/or reducing prices to routes in and out of the city during the three months of the Exhibition to boost profits for the airline.
