Yes, this is a much bigger priority. SAS should be finished and extended to Brooklyn/Bronx. The airport connections are far from ideal, but unless you demolished the airports and rebuilt, I see no way you could ever do a one-seat ride, also because there is no true center in Manhattan.

The incremental improvements (the new Airtrain at LGA, the PATH extension to Newark and the Airtrain rebuilding/expansion at JFK) are fine, if less than ideal, for now. There are far bigger regional transit priorities.
