Hi, this is my itinerary for Mumbai - Pittsburgh

Departs : 0145 Arrives: 0645

Departs: 1045 Arrives: 1330

Departs: 1455 Arrives: 1635

I am traveling to US for the first time and I will be on a Student Visa.
My port of entry will be JFK from where I will fly to Pittsburgh. My concern is 1 hr 25 min lay over time at JFK. Will I get through immigration, baggage check in and stuff in 1.5 hours?
One thing to note is that I will remain on terminal 8 as my next flight is from the same terminal. Will it still be an issue? And just in case I do miss the flight, will it

be the airline's responsibilty to make sure I get the next flight? Or will I have to pay? I have already booked the ticket so what can be done now? Agency is saying it won't be a issue.

Help will be appreciated.

You might miss it... For most airline's is it your fault to pay for another ticket.

I'm going to flight and arrive at the airport terminal 3 by 7:55 on 10th of Jan and my friend arrive after 2 hour at the terminal 1. We are going to stay NYC after meeting up at the airport however we are not sure where is the best and easiest to catch up in addition we dont have mobile phone.
now I'm thinking i should go to the terminal 1 to get her so is there any good place? and how to get to terminal 1? is there cafe or shops outside of the terminal 1?

Thanks you


Take any train on track 1 from t3 to t1. It should take about 2 minutes. There are cafe shops at terminal 1.

Please can you advise if there are any companies that offer airside assistance from international flights, example, meet the passenger from the flight, help thru immigration and boarder control and collect luggage and out of the airport?
Many thanks

hi can anyone please help, How do I go from East Rutherford to JFK airport by public transport?

Take the NJ Transit bus to Port Authority. Then the subway to JFK.

Subway - Port Authority: the A and the E will take you to Queens from where you can take the Airtrain to the right terminal.
So A to FarRockway (don't take the one to Laeffert's Blvd) and then the airtrain
E to Jamaica, Queens and Airtrain to JFK.

The whole trip might take you a little under 2 hrs.

I want to get from Jfk to the Strand Hotel 33 West 37 Street. NYC. I have no idea what to expect when I get there! What is the most cost effective and simplest way of getting there? Thanks for any help.

Whats the best way to do this on Friday afternoon please

I will be coming into JFK tomorrow morning and I would like to know how do I get to our hotel, The Moderne, which is located at 243 W 55th st?? The nearest subway station is 55th St-7th Av Station-N/Q/R/W trains...but how do I get there??? Thanks!!

is there an address for the long term parking lot?
also, is the long term parking lot self park or valet?

Try Lefferts Blvd at intersection of Pan Am Way if you want ot put it in GPS. LT is self-park only.

My son will be arriving at 4:30pm from overseas at JFK. He has reserved seating on the AMTRAK to Providence at 8PM. How much will a taxi cost from JFK to Penn station and is that the fastest way to get to Penn station??

With tip and toll, a taxi will cost about $60. At that hour, the taxi ride could easily take more than one hour. If I were not carrying a lot of luggage, I would opt for the AirTrain to Jamaica Station ($5.00), and then the Long Island Rail Road from Jamaica to Penn Station ($6.25 on weekdays; $3.75 on weekends if one selects the "City Ticket" option on the LIRR ticket-vending machine). Total travel time should be 50-60 minutes.

What are alternative ways to get between JFK and EWR conveniently and inexpensively ?

Olympic Airporter offers hourly scheduled service between the two airports. The trip takes about 90 minutes, and costs $30 per person. (There might be an extra charge if you have a lot of luggage.) Details can be found at:


1)State Shuttle has service between airports for around $35. Inquire at Ground Transportation for schedule.
2)By train: take AirTrain on track 1 from terminal to Jamaica Station ($5), transfer to LIRR to Penn Station ($8.75/$6.25 off peak), transfer to NJ Transit train to EWR rail station ($12.50 includes EWR AirTrain fare), transfer to EWR AirTrain to terminals.

remark for 1. - Most of the Ground Transportation counters have been transformed into Welcome Centers at JFK.

With the pending construction at JFK are the driving directions/signs cleary label for passanger drop off at terminal 3.

Do Delta flights to MBJ depart from terminal 3

Yes and Yes.

Dear Sirs, I'll land at JFK-Terminal 1 next Saturday and have to reach the Hotel in East Broadway.

New York, West Side of 9th Ave between 31st St and 33rd St MEGA BUS station how to get there from jfk????

walking or train

AirTrain to Jamaica Station; then, either Manhattan-bound "E" subway or Long Island Rail Road to Penn Station. (The LIRR will be faster; the subway will be cheaper.) Exit Penn Station (or the subway) on the 8th Avenue side, and walk west one block -- on either 31st or 33rd Street -- to 9th Avenue. If you're hungry and arrive in Manhattan before 9:00 PM, you can get an excellent slice of pizza at Pizza Suprema, on 8th Avenue between 30th and 31st streets.

Take AirTrain on track 1 from terminal to Howard Beach Station ($5), transfer to the A subway ($2.25) to Hoyt-Schermerhorn, exit to Hoyt St. and walk north on Hoyt to Fulton Mall, turn right one block and then left to Duffield St.
