  • They have some good Shuburros pizza here but you will pay $9 for a slice of pizza and a large drink so if you are going to eat at the airport then it will cost you

      If you travel to and from New York then you probably have experience with JFK airport. However, if you do not have experience with this airport you are probably better off than most of us because I can tell you that I wish I had no experience with this airport. The reasons for this are many but basically because of the fact that this airport is so large that there are almost 20,000 people traveling through the airport at any time.

      This means that the airport is crowded, in fact I have traveled a lot and this is the most crowded place that I have ever flew through. Other things I did not like about the airport is that because it is so large you


      will be forced to wait on line to check in for 10 to 20 minutes and this means that you will need to get to their airport extra early.

      If you do not then you will be locked out of the flight and when you get to the front desk you will be told that you can not board the flight. At this point they will offer to rebook you on another flight but since this airport is so large they are usually unable to book you because everyone that came before you has already been rebooked.

      This means that you will likely be left without a flight and this is all caused by the fact that you choose a very brig airport. Other things ...


      • I do not like are that the lines are VERY long which means that you could spend 15 minutes in line getting through security.

        The delays are so bad that I have often missed flights here because I took too long to get through security. Another thing they do here that I have not seen at other airports is they check your ID when you check in, they then check your ID before you approach security and finally right before you approach the detector.

        This means that the lines are longer and you are more likely to miss your flight because there are so many steps to the process. The airport is very large but the representatives are nice enough to give you instructions

        on how to get to your gate which is nice.

        One thing I hated was that there were hundreds of people sleeping on the florr, some of them had luggage with them and others did not. There are people like this all over the airport and no place to sit for me as a traveler.

        Also, the lights in the airport were very dim. I am sure there are a lot of homeless people that live here.

        They have some good Shuburros pizza here but you will pay $9 for a slice of pizza and a large drink so if you are going to eat at the airport then it will cost you. Also, this airport offers the cheapest tickets in New York so the choice is yours.
