History - Construction of the airport began in 1942 with modest ambitions. Only 1,000 acres (4 km²) of land on the site of Idlewild golf course were earmarked for use. The golf course provided the airport's original namesake, Idlewild Airport. First commercial flights began on July 1, 1948. The airport was formally dedicated as New York International Airport on July 31, 1948. It was re-dedicated on December 24, 1963 as John F. Kennedy International Airport, following action of the Mayor and Council of the City of New York, and a resolution of the Commissioners of the Port Authority. After the September 11, 2001 attacks, JFK was one of the first airports in the United States to be temporarily closed.

Yes. You shouldn't have any problem

In march I will visit New York, I have heard about the eyescan and I wondered if you have an eyeprotesii, will I get any problem with it.

If you have surgery done whilst you are hear - think twice about it. The doctors may not want you flying for some time after the surgery. Aircraft are pressurized vessels. They generally pressurize to 8000' at normal cruise altitude. This is fine for healthy individuals. But, your poor eyeball may not like the pressure this causes on any stitches. Ask the doctor how long before I can fly?

I am trying to sorto ut a problem with my airline. My flight for Heathrow on 19.12.08 was cancelled because the aeroplane didn't take off from JFK airport. Could you please tell me which flights were cancelled on 19.12.08 and the reason for the cancellation.

We should arrive at JFK around noon from Europe. Does anybody know how much time should there be between arrival and departure?
Thanks for your information.

At least 2 hours and even that is short,so better more than 2 hours but it has to be at least 2 or 2 and a half hours.
