The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey, the body that overlooks the three New York Area airports of LGA/JFK/EWR has come down hard high prices at its airports. The new policy, it says, “caps all concession prices at local, off-airport “street prices” plus a maximum surcharge of 10 percent and requires concessionaries to offer lower-priced food and beverage options to provide a wider range of value for customers.”

It has singled out concessionaire operator OTG, which first came to notice via a July 2021 traveler complaint on social media about the listed price of a seasonal beer, which exceeded $27, the audit said.
