Part of the DKI mess is from construction aimed at sprucing up the place. But it’s a similar situation at Newark Liberty and LaGuardia airports, the ones ranked below it.

Bringing back battle of Midway
A red-carpet screening of “Midway,” a highly anticipated film that spans the six months from Japan’s surprise attack on Pearl Harbor to the long-odds U.S. naval victory at the Battle of Midway in June 1942, is slated for Oct. 20 at Pearl Harbor.
Officials have made a point of saying that the big-screen release — a blend of blockbuster action movie and stories of interpersonal relationships in a time of World War II crisis — is not a remake of the 1976 version starring Henry Fonda. Among the 2019 film’s cast members: Patrick Wilson, Dennis Quaid and Woody Harrelson. It’s scheduled for wide release Nov. 8, ahead of Veterans Day weekend.
