Anything Interesting To Do At JFK?

Wed Jun 10, 2009 4:16 pm

Hello to everyone!

I booked a flight with DL, routing DAB-ATL-JFK-NCE. My ATL-JFK flight arrives at JFK at 10:59 am, and the JFK-NCE leg starts at 5:35 pm. I've had longer waits, and I'm sure you all have too! So for anyone who knows JFK well, can you tell me what's around in the airport (in the DL terminal, of course, unless...?) and if there is anything interesting to do during that 6 and a half hour long wait?

Thank you very much!

Hey,

I spent 5 hours in that terminal last February. There isn't that much to do, but you can take a long walk from one end to the other and do some spotting along the way. Apart from that, it was a long wait, with almost no WIFI signal at the gate.. There are however plenty of restaurants/bars

If you don't mind exiting and doing TSA again, take the airtrain around the airport and see the other terminals.

Terminal 4 is fairly new and has some good bars/restaurants not through security. Not sure about the new terminal 5 and what they have not through security but I would be some nice ones, besides its the newest terminal, fun to explore them!

This coming from someone who lives in manhattan, I should go and check it out hehe  Smile

Thanks!  Smile Too bad for the WIFI. I'll just go spotting and check out the terminals I guess.

Good day !  Smile

If TWA was still around you could head over to Terminal 5 and hang out in the fabulous Lisbon Lounge..... the memory of it still beats any exec / first class lounge today.

There are some nice shops in Terminal 4 also... all before security. It is fun to walk around the ticket counters at 4 and people watch with so many different nationalities.

He could go visit T5 and whats left of the original T5.
