A big chunk of private-sector infrastructure opens at New York’s JFK airport today. It's the new Delta Airlines terminal, with its $1.6 billion worth of lounge area, gates, and services. Delta’s Chief Executive Officer, Richard Anderson, joins Marketplace Morning Report to discuss the industry, mergers, passenger fees, and why Delta thinks its about to have its most profitable year ever. And California has unveiled the prices of health insurance to be sold on a state-run exchange starting next year. The exchange is designed to give more people access to insurance, but there's still an affordability issue.
