Hi there! I will be arriving from Amsterdam (AMS) at 8:00pm on a Friday evening, and flying out to Altanta (ATL) at 6:15am on Saturday morning.

First, will my checked baggage be transferred automatically to the new flight (I'm assuming this is the case as it's with the same airline).

Next, flying in via Delta (KLM Royal Dutch), which terminal would be the best to store my carry-on baggage?

Also, given the time I have, I plan on taking the AirTrain/Subway (or LIRR) into Manhattan to see the Empire State Building. What else would you recommend for a quick overnight sightseeing/activity excursion?

Lastly, what time should I plan on being back at the airport to retrieve my luggage from storage and make it through security?

Thanks so much for your help & advice.

What if you have a day to spend sightseeing but need to store your luggage? Your options are rather limited, but there are solutions.

Most of Manhattan's finer hotels have a luggage storage room. If your hotel does not store luggage, you might ask the concierge of a nearby one that does. You might also find that a generous tip can possibly help find you a solution if the hotel clerk hasn't got an answer. However, less expensive hotels might not be of any help at all, at which point you need to consider other options.
On a similar note, if you just stepped off a cruise ship and have eight hours before your flight, what to do? If you are the persuasive sort and well-dressed, you likely could store your luggage at a four-star hotel simply by approaching the concierge. Again, a generous tip would be in order, in addition to any fee the hotel might charge.

A mention of places that currently do NOT store luggage: The Port Authority Bus Terminal; LaGuardia Airport; and Newark Airport. Advance airline check-in does not function here as it does in some European countries, whereby your luggage can be delivered to the airline 24 hours in advance. Thus, an early trip to the airport would be a waste of time anyhow. Some foreign carriers do make special arrangements for their first-class passengers; inquire of the airline.

Although JFK airport does have two luggage storage facilities, unless you intend to fly into JFK and fly out again from JFK, it's a waste of your time to travel so far just to store your luggage. This service is most useful if you have just arrived after a long-haul international flight and have a day to spend before your onward connection. The facility operates 24 hours per day, and charges $4.00 to $16.00 per day depending on the size of your luggage. For more information, phone (212) 643-1369the size of your luggage. For more .

Pennsylvania Station does store luggage, but the facility can be hard to find. Do ask a uniformed Amtrak employee for assistance at the station if you have difficulty finding it. Generally, you need to be able to present a train ticket to use this service, but not always. Costs are moderate. This option is most useful if you intend to travel via Amtrak, or if you will take NJ Transit/AirTrain to Newark Airport. Perhaps less stressful and more convenient would be New York Luggage Storage which offers luggage storage, luggage forwarding, and a modest self-storage facility. They charge $5 to $10 per bag per 24 hour period and are open daily from 8 am to 11 pm.

In sum, with a bit of planning you can arrange to store your luggage should you find you have a day or so to spend in New York minus your possessions. A final note: Always lock your luggage before storing it!Obviously under no circumstances should you leave any valuables your luggage (camera, passport, money).

Kudos to Darliss for providing us with good information!

Hi, I'll becoming into NYC Kennedy airport at 6 PM with United (domestic) one day, flying out with Lufthansa (international)around 9 PM the next. I would like to store a suitcase at the airport while visiting family in NY. Which storage location makes the most sense?

Use the storage facility at T1(Lufthansa terminal).

Call airport storage facility authorities please.

I'm flying to Cleveland from Japan on leave (Navy) March 10th. I have a three hour layover at JFK, and have to switch from American to Delta. My Aunt lives in Brooklyn, and I was wondering if there was any way for her to leave my favorite jacket at the Airport so I can pick it up when I get there around 18:00. Is that possible, or are the luggage storage places inside airport security (aka she would need a plane ticket to access them)? The quicker I have this question answered the better, Thanks!

Call airport please.
