14 Month-Old Theo’s Global Entry Interview at JFK- How Did It Go?

global entry

All of the Michael W Travels family have had Global Entry for some years now.

When Theo was born, Kim and I procrastinated on getting his Global Entry membership taken care of. This was never really an issue. When arriving back in the US, all we usually needed to do was fill out a customs form for him to include with our slips from the GE machine.

With Kim’s Amex Platinum fee coming up, it was time to get Theo his Global Entry membership. Continue reading 14 Month-Old Theo’s Global Entry Interview at JFK- How Did It Go?

Registration Open for JFK Runway Run 5K!

JFK Runway Run

While I’ve really been slacking off with running this past year, registration recently opened for one of my favorite 5Ks.

Registration is now open for the JFK Runway Run which takes place on the runway of a major airport in New York City! If you’re into plane-spotting, then this could be a fun race to enter, even if you walk the entire 5k!

After running the JFK Runway Run 5k three years in a row, I missed it last year since the timing wasn’t right. However, this year I’m definitely planning to enter again! Continue reading Registration Open for JFK Runway Run 5K!

I don’t think its much of a secret that the airports around New York leave much to be desired. Major updates wouldn’t hurt all three- JFK, LGA and EWR.

Over the past few years there’s been some excitement due to improvements with Delta’s T4 which features some solid food options including two Shake Shakes (which serve breakfast) and a Delta Sky Club with an outdoor Sky Deck.

I’d also love to check out the recently opened for all JetBlue T5 Rooftop at JFK.

United’s Terminal C at Newark Airport has also undergone a renovation offering some great food options with a touch of technology. If you’re looking for a solid burger at Terminal C, give Custom Burgers a try.

So what’s the newest thing coming to a NYC area airport? Continue reading JFK Airport Getting $48 Million Animal Terminal, The ARK

Last Friday, I headed to JFK Airport but it wasn’t for a flight. Kim and Lucas had their Global Entry interviews scheduled.

While I was expecting some sort of wait, the process went smoothly and we were in and out in very little time.

Due to some wise thinking by Kim, we didn’t only save some time, we also saved $16 during the process. Continue reading Global Entry Interviews For Kim & Lucas, Impressively Fast!

You’ve got to wonder who is doing the interviewing for airport employees and do they even bother to do background checks…

Earlier in May there was news of baggage handlers getting arrested for transporting drugs at the airport. There has also been stories of theft at the airport. One instance that sticks it is that of a worker that stole over 1,400 mini-liquor bottles from AA planes!

In the most recent case of airport theft, two employees at JFK are accused of stealing a shipment of NBA star Kevin Durant’s newest line of Nike KD8 sneakers. Seriously… Continue reading JFK Airport Employees Steal Carton of Unreleased Nikes, Arrested…
