What can you do when you’re stuck at the airport? Eat!
Lucky for you there are some new dining options at several U.S. airports.
If you’re hungry at JFK’s Delta Terminal 3 and don’t want to give up that seat you finally found by the power outlet, starting Thursday, May 5th they’ll be an app for that.
HMSHost and Airside Mobile are launching the B4YouBoard iPhone App that will let you use your smartphone to order food, pay for it and have it delivered to you within 20 minutes (they promise) at six delivery zones inside the terminal.
The service will expand in the future, but for now the app will only work at JFK’s Delta Terminal 3, only on iPhones and only if you want to eat something from Balducci’s Food Lover’s Market or Chili’s Too between noon to 8 pm.
Still, if it’s a busy afternoon and you’ve finally found a seat and spread out your stuff, you can see how having in-airport food delivery – to eat there or take on the plane – might be very convenient.

- Port Columbus International Airport recently became the first U.S. airport to have a Tim Hortons Cafe and Bake Shop. Look for it near the entrance to Concourse B.
- And Shula’s Bar and Grill (breakfast, lunch, dinner, hamburger, cocktails,etc.) is opening a branch at Miami International Airport (North Terminal, Concourse D) on Thursday May 5th, 2011.
