LAX to JFK Flights

Los Angeles and New York City Airports

Search for flights from LAX to JFK and trade horizontal sprawl for vertical span. LA has some pretty fascinating architecture, including the Theme Building at Los Angeles International Airport. It’s a mid-century modern structure designed to look like a spaceship landing on its four legs. The airport also houses a museum, so you know NYC doesn’t hold the only claim to culture. But, to see more world-famous art, you need to fly to New York. Reach the airport by the 405 or 105 freeways, and park in one of the 8,000 stalls in one of the eight parking structures, located opposite the roadways from passenger terminals. The economy lot is on 96th Street and Sepulveda Boulevard. Public transportation includes the FlyAway bus, which serves downtown, West LA, Hollywood, and Santa Monica.

When flights from Los Angeles to New York land, passengers find themselves 20 km southeast of Lower Manhattan. There are six terminals, with transport options from each of them. Take AirTrain JFK to the NYC subway or the Long Island Rail Road, from which you can connect to any nearby areas. Bus routes Q3, Q10, and B15 depart from the central terminal area, while Q6 leaves from the eastern cargo area, and Q7 from cargo area C. Another way into the city is via iconic NYC yellow taxi, which offer flat rates to the city centre.

Basic flight with no frills

Shorter flight than expected.

Only problem with basic economy is you just can’t upgrade to anything. You can’t have anything in overhead locker so you have to check your bag. New planes meant reasonably comfortable (not so squishy) seats with modern in-seat entertainment. This flight sat us all together where as the first leg had us all sitting apart which is not acceptable when travelling with a child.

My flight from Melbourne to Los Angeles was lovely but making the connection at LAX to my flight to JFK was a nightmare. I had just 90 mins to get off the plane, go through immigration, baggage claim, customs, drop my checked bag off for the next flight and go through security to board the plane. I made it with 15 mins to spare and was sweaty and exhausted. Please consider arranging slightly longer layover times for international flights with a connection that requires this many steps.

In Comfort +, we were meant to get dedicated overhead bin space. That didn't happen. Had to store our bags in first class bins.
