JFK Airport’s priorities: animals above baggage handlers

Didn’t I recently post something about how JFK’s baggage handlers are trapped in penury because of the inhumanly low wages the airport pays them?

Indeed I did.

Well, now we learn what JFK’s real priorities are: luxury accommodations for…pets.

Jet-setting stallions and high-flying hounds at New York’s Kennedy Airport can look forward to a new luxury terminal that will handle the more than 70,000 animals flying in and out every year.

Here’s a snippet:

The ARK at JFK, its name inspired by Noah’s biblical vessel, will more than measure up to terminals for humans: Horses and cows will occupy sleek, climate-controlled stalls with showers, and doggies will lounge in hotel suites featuring flat-screen TVs. A special space for penguins will allow them mating privacy.
