My friend is flying transit from Bulgaria to Jamaica and would love to meet her for a few hours in JFK. Can she exit the transit lounge to see me? Does she need to buy a transit visa for that? Bulgaria is part of EU.

There is no transit lounge at JFK. If she is connecting in US she MUST have a US visa. And, yes, Bulgaria is part of EU, but US still requires citizens of certain EU countries(like Bulgaria) to have valid visa upon entering US(either transiting or staying).
If she has US visa she can go out of the airport.

Dear Sirs,
My mother is flying from Barcelona to Cancun via JFK. She has a connected AA flight from BCN to CUN, so I understand she has no need of taking her luggage at JFK since it will be checked in BCN to final destination CUN. I guess she has only to go through customs, right?
She is arriving at Terminal 1 and departing again from T8; does she need to fill the ESTA documents just for a connection or will she only be asked to show her electronic UE Passport to go to the gate to CUN?
Thank you in advance!

hi, my mom travelled from the phillippines via korea last monday morning 1230 am (Philippline time). and as of this time we have not heard a word from her. could anyone possibly help me find a way to contact her? thanks and God bless!

I will be arriving with Turkish to JFK Terminal 1 and fly to Bradley Int. with Delta from Terminal 3. How long does the customs control take? Do I have to pick up my luggage once I land or will it travel all the way to Bradley? If I have to take my luggage at JFK is there a transfer desk I can deliver my luggage? Thanks

It takes between 20-40 min. to clear immigration/customs. You do have to pick up your bags in order to go through US customs. Transfer your bags at Turkish Airlines connecting flights counter at T1.

Would you have the phone number for the Korean Air Lounge at JFK?

Before I flew on Friday May 21 to Istanbul, I spent about an hour at Korean Air Lounge at JFK and used my notebook computer. After I boarded the aircraft I noticed that I forgot my computer mouse at the lounge. It is brand new and not a cheap one. I asked the airline after landing in Istanbul to contact the lounge but I am not sure how much effort they are putting into it.

Call (718) 751-1299 - paging at T1 . It is not the one you are looking for but they will be able to give you the right phone number.

Actually here is the number you are looking for:
(718) 751-2031

Hello! My boss will arrive to JFK to Terminal 1 22.05.2010 by Aeroflot in 17.00 Local time. He is flying in buessnes class and needs VIP service after arriving. How can I book service for him in VIP lounge? And how much it will be cost? Thank you.

If he is flying in business class then he will be entitled for business lounge - let him (or you ) speak to Aeroflot representatives.

Dir Sir or Madam,

a friend of me is on the JFK at the Moment at the Terminal 1 and he needs to talk with Turkish Airline Staff to ask some questions about his flight for today. Please can you tell me where he needs to go and talk with an turkish airline employee? Or you maybe know when the counter of turkish airlines open today? There is also another counter from Koreatn Air, you maybe know if they work with turkish airlines or shall he wait untill the Turkish Airlines Staff comes???

Hello. I will come to New York on the 12 of June from Moscow by Aeroflot. And I don't know how to go to my hotel: Hotel Vincci Avalon,Address 16 East 32nd Street, Midtown. Can you help me?

Taxi will cost you $50+ but is most direct route and best for someone who doesn't know their way around or has alot of luggage. If you feel comfortable taking public transportation: take Airtrain from your terminal to Jamaica Station, then E subway to 51st St. and transfer to the downtown-bound #6 subway to 33rd St. Walk one block south on Park Ave. to 32nd St. and turn right. Hotel is a block and a half. Total cost is $7.25.

i have to pick up my cousin at jfk at gate 7 at 9:30pm, i have no clue which terminal or flight he is on. Do you know which terminal i should go to?

Thanks for your help.
