Editorial review from Citysearch 2/23/2014

My least favorite NYC airport but still an option. It's really busy and spread out. Lots of walking with bags. more

Airport 7/15/2009

Very crowded at times. Long lines, long waits, layovers, delays, tight security, and you must silence your cell phones on planes, sounds stupid. I kinda like the Jet Blue Airlines. I was served first class. Great liqour and everything. Shopping is large here. Crowds and lines can be a ruccus like Jurrassic Park. I hated when I had to take my shoes off, when they let me through the security system along with my luggage. Pros: You finally arrive at your destination Cons: Tight security, prices more

Avoid at ALL cost! 8/4/2008

ALERT, Avoid at ALL cost! This place is aesthetically deficient, and seriously folks, when you factor in the air traffic in and around this place, you just know you had better phone the folks back home and tell them you're going to be late. Like maybe a day or two late! more

Nine Terminals?!? 11/7/2002

Besides Detroit, the worst airport ever conceived. It's not their fault...JFK just grew like crazy, but the place is a zoo. Horrible for layovers. Unfortunately, close to NYC. Pros: Close to NYC, Every Airline, Required Cons: Zoo, Nine Terminals???, Required more

jfk--lost in space 11/7/2002

constant construction, overwhelmed staff, obsolete terminals, the traffic pattern from hell (both air and ground), the airtrain that is supposed to relieve congestion but goes nowhere ...coming in from anyplace in us or canada, it would be better to fly to islip, or even LaGuardia. from elsewhere, good luck, you'll need it. more

Helpful Tips 10/20/2002

Some helpful information about JFK. 1. MAKE SURE YOU ASK WHICH TERMINAL YOUR FLY IS!!! There are nine terminals and if you don't read the signs at the entrance you can waste a lot of time driving around. 2. If you have a lay over don't plan on being comfortable unless you stay at a hotel. 3. You have less chances for flight delays if you left in morning or early afternoon. 4. Don't plan on getting a cup of coffee at Terminal One unless you have a ticket and go thru screening. 5. Terminal Four has a nice restaurant, duty free and shops including a book store. Pros: Close to NYC, direct flights Cons: Parking, Construction more

Horrendously Huge! 10/20/2002

JFK is in my opinion an horrendously huge airport and getting from one terminal to another is quite a hassle! There aren't sufficient guides to tell you where to go for what and it is a nightmare for first-time travellers! Construction all over the place, especially in the American Airline terminals 8 & 9 make it that much more difficult to move around and add messy to that list! Pros: Internet Kiosks Cons: Hassle moving around, Insufficient info, Messy more

Unorganized and over crowded... 8/24/2002

The baggage claim area in JFK airport is the worst out of any big cities that I have flown to. Not only do they not post the right flight numbers, but there was no airport personel around to help us figure out which conveyor line was the correct one. If you are flying American Airlines, you need to leave yourself plenty of time. There's traffic to the terminal because of construction and their check-in line is ALWAYS long. We almost missed our flight and the airline attendants could have cared less. Overall I'd rather fly to LaGuardia or Newark and avoid all the hassle at JFK. Pros: distance to gate Cons: long check-in lines, baggage claim areas more
