Per Bloomberg:

"New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport is no longer ranked among the 20 busiest in the world, thanks to the rush in Asia.

Among those pushing out JFK was New Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport that made its debut on the table last year at No. 16, according to Airports Council International rankings released Monday. The Indian airfield was also the fastest-growing on the list, with passenger growth at 14 percent, followed by the 10 percent clip at China’s Guangzhou, which climbed two notches to No. 13."

Is JFK's reputation as a nightmare to transit through also a factor? Much is made of Asian expansion but there's also a lot of competition between the major US hubs and JFK always seems to be the one to avoid, if you can.
A million great ideas...

I think 10% of last year's arrivals stats are still waiting for a gate.
Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast:
For it is the number of a man; and its number is One hundred threescore and twelve.

Is it still that bad? My own experiences of travelling on an ESTA and using the automated kiosks have made things much more tolerable; Atlanta was an absolute breeze in February and Miami the same the previous trip.
There's the right way, the wrong way and the railway.

Three years ago, it took half an hour to get onto stand, a further half an hour to get the door open and people starting to get off, and over an hour in immigration, with ESTA. If there were automated kiosks, nobody from my flight found them...

It then took a further hour to get past the TSApes.

I had a 4-hour connection, and it was unpleasantly tight.

That was whatever terminal AA and AY use (T8?).

JFK definitely needs common-use remote gates like they have at LAX.

Sure, bus boarding sucks but it's a better option than just sitting waiting for a gate upon arrival.

If you're flying in and out of Terminal 1 you better hope to hell everyone's going on time.

Nothing like coming in from Taipei or Shanghai, arriving early, and having to sit because you dont have a place to park. Then you add to that delay by waiting for a delayed Lufthansa or Alitalia 10pm to push back so you can get in and park. Air France has their name on the damn building and they'll take delays, having the 380s sit and wait for a gate after coming in from Paris while they wait for their delayed sisters to get out of the gate and let them come in.
