I`m writing to let everybody know that luggage storage on 4 terminal is not safe place for your bags.

I left my bag there for only 24 hours, because I stayed in NY for only one night. When I got to airport first I went for my bag (I had only 2 hours to flight). Some man from this storage was searching for my bag for one hour, he couldn`t find it, he wanted my help and he took me to place where they`re keeping those bags. There were plenty of this bags and inside the storage they had terrible mess.

In my opinion this is crazy that he need my help.
Finally I left NY without my luggage.

And now please read this very carefully what happend.

I got to my country and I had a call from NY but not from the storage but from some airlines which I flew to NY. They told me that they have my luggage but I cannot understand why they had it, this torage should had - I`m I right? Who gave them my bags?????????????

Finally this airlines sent me my bags.

PS. I wrote few mails to 4 Terminal storage but nobody answer. Without any help from some good people (JET BLUE Airlines) for sure I would not get my luggage.

A mother with two children are arriving to JFK. Is there any help provided with carrying the luggage from belt and through customs.
Thank you.

do we have to reserve in order to store our luggages? can't we do it as we arrive there?

Hi I don't know much about airport storage and was wondering about storing some surfboards for a day long layover so i can check out New York. Does anyone know anything about storing surfboards that can provide some advice?

Is this a safe and economical way to store baggage?
My adult children are flying into JFK for a 2-day look around and then on to London, where they go to school.
They want to stay at youth hostels in the area, but do not need to lug their luggage ment to fly on to London, with them these 2 days.
Can the excess baggage (leaving them with only backpacks to carry around) be left in this facility for 2 days?

Thanks for any input.

Dear Sirs,
As I will be flying to Denver for two days, and then will be back to leave from JFK to Paris.
I am wondering if this luggage storage means safe place to put my luggage at?

Yes, it is safe and economical. Your luggage is inspected for perishables and picture taken. Picture ID required. I suggest you put a small pad lock on it if possible. But I've stored items from a few hours to several weeks and nothing has ever been stolen. Recommend Terminal 4 storage because its 24/7. I hope this helps. For planning sake, allow an EXTRA hour to retrieve bag and get to your departure terminal. ERA

My luggage was not checked for anything and no picture was taken
