Meanwhile, New York City's LaGuardia International and John F. Kennedy International airports allow e-cigarettes in some terminals, but not in others, according to the paper.

By contrast, San Francisco International Airport, Chicago's O’Hare International and Midway airports, Philadelphia International Airport and Los Angeles International Airport all treat e-cigarettes like their nonelectronic counterparts and enforce a total ban on smoking.
