I remember back in the 70’s that the french SST didn’t meet U.S. noise requirements, so they somehow reached “an agreement” to allow it to land at JFK only. Not an exact parallel, but interestingly similar.

Kinda like Jenny Granholm giving tax breaks to the film industry. She could have come off as a hero if she had given those same breaks to all.

In a former life I flew for Pan Am, during a stormy summer day at JFK, traffic was backed up for hours. The BA Concorde took off at night. It was an amazing sight to see all 4 afterburners on takeoff and departure.
