i was supposed to leave from nyc to amman on dec 16 ... they kept delaying my flight , its dec 18 th around 5 pm and i havent left new york yet ... as soon as i get to amman im gonna see what legal actions i can take , cause honestly they ruined my 2 weeks vacation and i gotta be back to nyc on jan 2 ,,,

Arriving from YUL to T3 @ 4:20pm. Leaving JFK from T4 for STN @ 6:45pm. 2 hrs 25 mins between flights. Is that enough time to clear customs, change terminals and check-in for departing flight to STN?

Take a taxi to New York Penn Station ($45)
and then Take a train to Newark Airport. (
For schedule go to www.njtransit.com

and look for a train from New York Penn Station to Newark Airport.

This is truly the fastest way.

I am reaching JFK at 4.35PM (16.35hrs) from Istanbul on Jan 5th 2008 and I have to catch connecting flight from Newark EWR to Indianapolis at 7.00PM (19.00hrs) on the same day. Can any one explain me the fastest way to recah EWR?

there is a shuttle bus from jfk to grand central then from grand central you switch to a different bus that will take you to newark. That is the cheapest/fastest way i use. it picks up outside adn it looks like a large tour bus. It will probably be 20-30 $ u.s.

Does anyone know if there is an ATM at JFK. Going out of Terminal 2 Delta Airlines

My Wife arrives at New York today at 20:00 and she takes another plane to Miami tomorrow at 6:00 am. I want to know if the airport is opened all night, and if there are stores and shoping centers opened too. Thanks

ROYAL JORDANIAN- has canceled flights for the 14th and 15th of December, with out leting anyone know, they havent told the travel companys nor the other airlines that connect to these flights. My ticket was for today December 14th and if I personaly did not take action and notice all these changes, I would of sat at JFK for 2 days. I have 17 print offs of my flights all controdicting the other, being no ones fault but ROYAL JORDANIAN, for no communication. I contact ROYAL JORDANIAN customer care last night confirming that my flight from JFK takes of @9pm, finding that they changed it to 11pm, than 12:30 a.m the following day December 16th,the customer service gentalman said they are trying to fill the plan is the reason for all the changes. This morning at 6:30a.m. I look again to see if any changes, and there was. The flight was now not leaving until 3:30 a.m. the 16th of December. By now I am flamming mad so I contact al carriers to this flight all afiliates and the travel companys. no one believing me until they go to the ROYAL JORDANIAN web site and seeing for them selfs, the contact ROYAL JORDANIAN and to my amaze ROYAL JORDANIAN calls me! finaly! after 3 days of these changes telling me it is due to weather. yet there is zero reports of delayed flights to Amman from JFK at JFK airport or at the FFA web site. My question is this: How can this be allowed??? Is this legal?? what can I do?

Royal Jordanian is unbeleivably HORRIBLE Passengers are standing infront of their desk for more than 3 hours and no one is there to help them, we called their office several times and they kept saying that there is somone there and after that they stopped taking calls, passengers are left there knowing nothing and some of them missed their flights. let alone that they post poned the schedule for the flight to amman.
P.S Passengers are still their right now

Oh No, I am having some hellish problems with my connecting flight out of JFK to Amman which is/was (not sure yet) sceduled to leave the 19th. I though Travelocity was putting me through the ringer, but by what I'm reading here it is probably R Jordanian. They have changed my flight itinerary 3 times since I got my paper ticket a month ago. Travelocity canceled the paper ticket they gave me & abandoned me to fend for myself at the airport. Everyone at the airport claimed it was someone elses problem and I lost my cool. Now I have a stand-by ticket for my original flight on the 19th and a ticket for the 20th so if I don't get on the 19th I can sleep in the airport and catch the second plane at 6:30am the following day (WHICH TRAVELOCITY tells me is an invalid flight! But US AIRWAYS says is valid--so who knows if I will ever get to Amman? And there seems to be little chance of winning any fight. US Airways gave me a time when I fly into Jordan, but couldn't varify the date (wierd). So, I lost a day of my life in the airport begging for a ticket, probably will lose the 19th sleeping at JFK and who knows about the 20th--21st--??? So much for my Jordanian Christmas. Is this usual or are they going through some big trouble recently?

The same thing is happening in Amman coming to JFK. I do not know what the legal recourse is. Usually you can complain nicely to the airline and they will comp you a new ticket but who wants to fly Royal Jordanian again?

They did it to me too .. i have tried to contact JFK airport itself and they did not know thye could not even give me the airline number... and wheni finally got the number from the iternet all you get is automated machine that does not tell you anything.... the web-site says it is schedueled to leave on time at 11 pm.. then finally i get call from royal jordanian ailines to tell me it leaves on december 16, 2007 at 3 am but there is no way i ca confirm it........ I will never fly this airline again even if they offer traveling for free... I will make plans with another airlines when i fly out again with my 150 people of my family members in June... I am sure what Ryoyal Jordanian Airline is doing is definitely illegal but who do you complain to..? If anyone has an aswer to whom i can complain to or how this could never happen again to anyone else ,, please please let me know

I have an international flight next week at 6:45 pm and wonder if I can check-in my luggage the night before the flight and come back to the airport the day of the flight.
Thank you

I'm due to land at JFK late at night - past midnight. I don't want to head into town until day break for personal safety reasons. My hotel reservation is not until the following night.

Are there any restrictions on waiting at the airport until morning?

No problem, just hold on to your travel documents and your ID, gather your bags and have a snooze in a chair, just be careful that someone does not snatch one of your bags. Mostly it is safe, but anyone from anywhere passes through this VERY international airport! Fun to people watch. Enjoy
