6:17 pm
you're laughing. rose isn't the only one shaking his head. in a comprehensive ranking of all u.s. airports, new york didn't come in near the bottom. our airports ranked the very worst, out of more than 300 airports nationwide. a failure on a range of statistics, cancellations, delays, air fares, claims against the tsa for theft, loss or damages, those who know the landscape best say it's because new york is a busy space. >> it is the most congested and challenging to fly for everybody, commercial pilots, private pilots. >> reporter: last year the governor and vice president, who once compared laguardia airport to that of a third world country, announced a $4 billion renovation. less than a year later the price tag is $5.3 billion. gates where planes park will be enlarged and an array of new restaurants.
6:18 pm
aviation program at vaughn college. >> there's always going to be delays. might as well make people comfortable comfortable. >> that's realism for sure. >> reporter: you may have heard about the multibillion dollar project to renovate laguardia airport. while it's being sold, it's something that's great for us. new yorkers, air travelers don't be fooled. the airlines are going to make out from this in a cash positive way. >> what they want to do is stretch out the ramps so you can fit larger airplanes into the gates. so larger airplanes can take maybe four times as many passengers as the smaller planes. >> reporter: and airlines make more money. >> and the port authority makes money because of the passenger tax. every time a passenger goes through, it's another 10 bucks for the port authority. >> that's an improvement fund made up of your money. he hopes as airports modernize terminals, others will improve theirs.
6:19 pm
room back or seats that aren't curved in. as for the delays from your flights to getting your luggage back, your improvement fund will have to keep working on it. kerry: thanks for that. joining us to continue the conversation live in the studio, we have the chairman and founder of global gateway alliance. great to have you with us. >> pleasure to be here. kerry: let's talk about the state of our airports in our area. you led a study on this looking into on time performance. how did our airports fair? >> global gateway alliance, our organization, studied the world in terms of the geographic prospect to get a greater geographic perspective. we rated the absolute worst airport in the world out of 29 major airports. kerry: our three were at the very bottom. >> at the very bottom of the list. kerry: what did you find when it came to our airports? >> weakest in terms of physical
6:20 pm
weakest in terms of goods and services. weakest in terms of security from the perspective of small petty theft. and the absolute weakest of everybody in terms of delays at the airport. kerry: let's talk about who ranked the best and what were they doing right that we're not doing? >> the things that we're not doing that the best airports and most of them are -- the new greatest airports are under construction today. it's physical investment. just thinking about things that people are going to want going forward in the future in their lives. you've got some incredible airports under construction in istanbul and airports that have been built that are fabulous in shanghai, dubai, even london. you had for a long time paris was the big hub in europe. and london wanted to invest in it. now london has been stealing market share from paris. kerry: what can be done in the short term to make things better?
6:21 pm
pursuing for 15 years. it's been a peeve of mine. i always say there's three things people don't realize you benefit from an investment in airport. one is it's really an artery for business when someone is making a decision where i'm going to locate my headquarters. it's one of the top five things that go on the checklist to make the decision. two is in terms of tourism. it drives a lot of business to the community and through the tax dollars that help. and last but not least, it's a quality of life perk that makes you happy to live in a city like new york. and it takes people that are just forward thinking, doing the research, doing the care, and for 15 years, i've been the guy fighting, knocking on politicians' doors to get them to pay attention to the airports. kerry: all right. keep knocking on those doors. thanks so much for being in the studio tonight. next, it is jackie robinson day in baseball. russ is joining us to talk about
6:22 pm

6:23 pm
6:24 pm
kerry: time for sports with russ. a big day in baseball history, the day we honor jackie robinson. russ: you know what? thinking about it, it's not just a big day in baseball history. really in civil rights history. 69 years ago today, april 15th, 1947, evans field brooklyn, playing for the dodgers, he made his debut. the dodgers won by the score of 5-3. that's not important. after that debut, obviously, no pun intended, the face of baseball would change forever. not just baseball, but while
6:25 pm
does bridge a lot of gaps when it comes to racial situations. kerry: a big moment in sports history and in civil rights history as well. russ: tremendous. like i say, sports has a lot to do with black and white. guys years ago and even today, if it wasn't for sports, they wouldn't play together. that's one of the good things i always say about sports. jackie was a forerunner. sometimes history is unfair. i've been thinking about it a lot. if i asked most of our viewers, unless you were a real staunch baseball fan, who larry dolby, people would say i don't know. he followed jackie robinson 11 years later. jackie made his debut. he became the second african-american and first in the american league. he went through everything,
6:26 pm
through, and he didn't have the benefit of playing a year in the minor leagues to know what was going to happen. he went from the old negro leagues to the majors. and when he arrived, with the exception of one teammate, joe gordon, all the cleveland indians in 1947 ignored him. and then he played in the 1948 world series. in the 1948 world series, becoming the first african-american to win, that with the pitcher steve grumic, that was his pride and joy. because that's when he felt black guy and a white guy together hugging, that's the way it should be. you know what? to his credit, larry dolby, no bitterness. kerry: cool story. thanks for sharing that. that's it for the news at 6:00. thanks for joining us. i'm kerry drew. for all of us in studio 5 and
6:27 pm
