More than 1,000 volunteers went through airport security but didn't fly anywhere when JetBlue held a dress rehearsal for its new terminal at Kennedy Airport.The run-through Saturday was part of a series of tests to prepare for the new terminal's opening on Oct. 1.

The new terminal is connected to the landmark Trans World Airlines terminal, which was built in 1962 and closed when TWA ended operations in October 2001.

The new Terminal 5 will boast several high-end restaurants, and passengers will be able to have food delivered to them at the gate.

It will handle up to 44,000 travelers a day.
