A study by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology proves that some publicity sucks. MIT's findings show that JFK International is the airport most likely to allow contagions to spread, creating a pandemic. 

The researchers stated that it is not an indictment of the airport's cleanliness, but rather the volume of passenger traffic and location.

So on top of having its TSA agents misuse the metal detector, steal thousands of dollars from passengers and throw coffee at a pilot, JFK is now considered the most contagious airport in the country. JFK officials must be just thrilled about this.
