The man arrived in New York on a flight from Ghana and declared his stash of 22 snails. However, the slimy creatures are prohibited due to the danger and damage they can cause. Continue reading Bag Of Giant African Snails Seized From Traveler At JFK Airport!
The last time we visited the TWA Flight Center was during Open House NY in October 2013.
The terminal was last available for tours in 2015 before construction got underway to transform the property into the TWA Hotel.
The hotel opened in mid-May 2019 and I’ve been hoping to visit ever since but we just haven’t gotten around to it. Continue reading Park and Fly At JFK Airport At The TWA Hotel
The hotel will debut their Runway Rink where “visitors and guests can take a spin on the tarmac around the hotel’s 1958 Lockheed Constellation Connie airplane (now a cocktail lounge) and then watch an ice skating spectacular!” Continue reading Go Ice Skating On The Runway at the TWA Hotel
A couple of months back, I wrote about a disappointing Priority Pass Lounge, Bobby Van’s Grill at JFK Airport.
BVG isn’t a typical Priority Pass Lounge, it’s a restaurant where members get a $28 credit. If you bring a guest, multiply it times 2 and you have $56 to spend during your visit.
While we weren’t happy with our selections, Kim and I figured another visit would be in order in the near future. Continue reading Much Better 2nd Visit At Priority Pass Lounge, Bobby Van’s Grill- JFK Airport
In 2017 I wrote a review of what I considered to be the most interesting Priority Pass lounge we ever visited.
The lounge I am referring to was actually a restaurant at London Gatwick Airport. The way a visit worked was that with your membership, you received a £15 credit. Guests of the card holder also receive this credit off the bill.
When I heard that Bobby Van’s Grill at JFK Airport had become a Priority Pass lounge, I wanted to visit but it just never worked out until our recent flight to Barcelona. Continue reading Disappointing Priority Pass Lounge: Bobby Van’s Grill- JFK Airport
Over the summer there were flight delays at JFK Airport due to turtles.
A few days back I received an e-mail from JetBlue about some expected flight
delays at JFK Airport, which could last until the middle of November. Continue reading Possible Flight Delays at JFK Airport Until Mid November 2017
Flights can be delayed for lots of reasons. Weather definitely causes its fair share of delays while other times it can be due to crews being late, long lines of planes waiting to take off and more.
Recently, flights at New York’s JFK Airport were delayed due to turtles. Continue reading Flights At JFK Airport Delayed By Turtles
Last month US Customs and Border Protection found over $160K worth of cocaine taped to a man’s leg at JFK Airport.
This clearly wasn’t a great plan as the man was caught. The funny thing is that getting caught clearly wasn’t a deterrent to others. Continue reading Two Caught At JFK Airport With $380,000 in Cocaine Taped To Legs
I recently wrote about how you could visit LaGuardia Airport’s Marine Air Terminal during Open House NY on October 17 & 18, 2015. You can also check out our full plans for Open House NY 2015.

Back in 2013 Delta opened a nice outdoor space at the Sky Club at JFK Airport called the Sky Deck. Check out my post about it here.
While I enjoyed visiting the Sky Deck, I haven’t been back since I haven’t flown much out of T4 and also no longer have access to the lounge…
Today was a big day at JFK Airport as a new outdoor space opened by JetBlue at T5. Best of all is that the T5 Rooftop is open to all- no lounge membership or status needed! Continue reading JetBlue T5 Rooftop Opens For All At JFK
