Update: 13L / 31R has reopened. Due to a runway closure until next winter 2020, when there's a strong NW or SE wind at JFK, major traffic management problems ensue.

Avoid JFK on:


13L / 31R is closed until winter 2020, and historically has handled 1/3 of all arrivals into JFK.

When the wind results in a ~30 knot crosswind or greater on 4L/22R and 4R/22L, JFK is forced to use only a single runway (13R/31L) for all arrivals and departures.

What happens when JFK uses a single runway?
