Big and busy airport. Make a reservation for a town car with driver it's cheaper then a taxiride to the city
Friendly staff, make sure which terminal you are flying from
Stupid duty free shop .
The slowest airport ever!
Terminal 4 is incredibly dusty! They ask you to take shoes of and make you walk on naked foot at that dirty floor:)
If you need a quick, affordable ride call a Lyft. Use my code Darnell159 for free ride credit.
One of the big ones. Pretty efficient when it comes to entering security
Architecture and cleanliness are a plus.
Go to EWR instead the extra price in tickets is worth it ...... Horrible happy endings
Welcome to NY ❤❤ always come ahead of time for your flight, because the security line is LONG !!!!
If not TSA Pre-check leave plenty of time. It's a busy international airport and wait times are unpredictable. Plan on 45 minutes to an hour through security.
Airport screening lines remind me why I hate some people...
Free Wi-Fi, MUJI to GO, and an outdoor patio/lounge/dog walk are just a few things to love about JetBlue's Terminal 5.
Easy to navigate!
Terminal is amazing-great layout, get anything you need and many food options too!
It´s very easy to get lost here :) Free Wi-Fi just only for 30 minutes from first connection
My preferred airport in the Greater New York area.
When will they have a cart or train to get to the gates? Half hour walk!
Finally wifi on delta international! Expensive though.
Don't go looking for terminals 3 or 6. It's 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, and 8 only.
American terminal had such a hike to baggage claim. Bring your track shoes.
Big. Follow the companys dispatch and get off at the right terminal when travelling by Airtrain.
If this is your first time in NYC, you have to visit this place I've found. It's a small island that has all kinds of fun stuff on it: Manhattan.
prefer the EWR to JFK... but if you must...
Grab a bottle of water before you board so you don't have to wait for the hostess to take your empty cup and you have water whenever you want.
The airtrain is expensive but worth it, dont forget to look up your airline on the terminals list. The 'international' or 'domestic flights' terminal rule does not apply to all airlines
Airtrain to Jamaica and LIRR to Penn station is the way to go, $12 off peak and takes around 30 minutes to get to Manhattan
The C concourse Admirals Club can be less crowded. Might be worth the walk.
Official New York Taxi rank was clearly marked, easy to get to, fully staffed with helpful people and a fixed rate from JFK into the city. Perfect!
Fly Jet Blue whenever possible and opt for Even More! It includes expedited security, early boarding and more leg room.
As with everything in New York, JFK is ALWAYS crowded. Take your time. at least 3 hours prior departure for international flights. and arrivals: at least 1hour in immigration.
jetBlue's T5 is outstanding! Plus, TV and WIFI on board!
Love the city but not so much this airport. Huge airport. Head onto the Airtrain to federal circle for car rental or Jamaica/ Howard beach stations for subway into the city.
People complain too much. That's a great international flying hub. A Great airport. A lot of food options. And AA's VIP Lounge for first class is exquisite.
You get 30 minutes free wifi for visiting a wifi sponsor's website
Come here to people watch
Like a third world airport, only 45 minutes to clear security today. Good luck everyone
Bad service for early morning flights. TSA doesn't re-open until 4:45 AM. Recommend that you arrive closer to your boarding time if you are taking a 6:00 AM flight out of JFK.
Air train takes ages
Ooh. ..it's really crowded..
Just a regular airport... But this is NY!
At least you are not in La Guardia! JFK is actually a very nice airport, depending on your airline terminal
American Airlines ;)
If I were to fly to NY, I'd avoid JFK... lines are long and it takes a long time to get to JFK...
Check out the T5 rooftop near great 28 if you want to see some green. they even have a wooftop to walk your dog.
Terminal 4 has two Shake Shacks in it. Need I say more?
Exquisite food points
If you need a quick view of New York, visit the Rockerfeller Center and Top of the Rock observation deck. They are less crowded than the Empire State Building yet have great views.
