Emirates Baggage allowance
2023.05.29 00:21 meg09002 Emirates Baggage allowance
Looking for some insight for anyone who has traveled business on Emirates before. My husband and I are traveling JFK -> MXP in three weeks. My husband hates checking bags so our plan was to bring our carry on Away suitcases and then a duffel backpack as our personal item. I logged into to Emirates today and it’s saying there is a 15 lb limit for carry on items? Do they really check this? I’ve never seen a weight limit for carry on items before. Thanks!

2023.05.28 23:38 Lopsided-Parsley-178 What could have happened?
I worked in travel a few years ago and I was on an Emirates flight back from Perth to Dubai after returning with a work trip with the Western Australia tourism board and Emirates/Qantas but it was a pretty strange experience. When we boarded there was around 40-50 people on board including the 10 in our group and the crew and it was probably the least amount of people I’ve ever seen on a long haul flight!
We take off and about 5 minutes from taking off the male flight attendant is looking out of the window from his seat and pointing to the female flight attendant near him. He seemed quite worked up and then the whole crew remained in their take off seats for around 30-45 minutes whilst talking on those phones that they have.
About 30-45 minutes after take off, we’re told over the loud speaker that we’re expecting turbulence throughout the flight and to keep our seat belts on at all times (the sign literally didn’t turn off). The flight attendants then started to move everyone to the middle/left side of the plane and closed the window blinds on the right side. I asked if anything was wrong and why the male flight attendant seemed worried at the start but was just told that it was turbulence causing the seat belt sign issue and that he was just ‘admiring’ the view from take off (that sentence has always stuck with me).
After about 11 hours of flying, we reach Dubai and we land at a completely separate part of the airport to the main terminal part. We had to wait for them to get stairs (I kid you not, the type you’d use to get on a Ryan air or EasyJet low cost flight), and arrange for a shuttle bus to pick us up and take us to the terminal. It was a pretty strange experience - We got inside the terminal and were scurried through by an airport rep but enroute they upgraded our entire party to business class for the Dubai to London leg with Qantas (presumably as the previous flight wasn’t a great experience) and no further mention of it was ever made.
I have just been talking to someone about this strange experience today and just wondered if this is protocol if something happens with an engine or an issue with the plane? I wish I’d pushed for more info at the time but it was a bit of a whirlwind experience.

2023.05.28 22:03 bunbohue1211 Layover at JFK
Hi all, I’m flying to vietnam from West Palm Beach AirPort. The flight from West Palm Beach will land in terminal 4 in JFK then I’ll flight to Korea from terminal 1. I know that the airtrain is not traveling to terminal 1. I have 1h50 layover.
1) Do I have to walk out of the airport and go through security again?
2) what would be the easiest to go from terminal 4 to terminal 1

2023.05.27 20:18 RFK-For-President Can you use lounges at different terminals?
If you are at JFK airport (as an example) and you have a flight from Terminal 8, is there any way that you could use the Centurion Lounge which is located in Terminal 4?
The terminals at JFK airport are not connected, and you would need to leave the secured zone (pass passport control and security) if you want to switch terminals. If the answer is "no" then this would make Centurion lounges quite limited, because it would mean that you need to only use certain airlines which use that particular terminal.

2023.05.27 19:26 ewok896 Dumb JFK Flight Question
I'm catching an intnl 6am flight in a few days and I wanna make sure I don't get railed. I usually fly out of EWR and I've gotten screwed when TSA is closed and I've had to sleep on some gd hostile architecture benches while I wait for security to open. This has happened to me before, too (looking at you, Madrid)
I'd like to imagine TSA at JFK is open 24/7, but thought someone here could tell me whether I should chill and just arrive a few hours before like usual or if it's better to get there late the night before and crash in the terminal

2023.05.27 16:22 Beneficial_Help2727 No lounge access JFK Terminal 8
Got the AMEX platinum card first time this year primarily for the lounge access. This is my first card with an AF.
Taking American Airlines from JFK terminal 8, only to realize there’s absolutely no lounge or restaurant that I can access with my card or priority pass membership.
I would have been better with the citi advantage executive card as lately I have been flying American a lot.
At the same time really disappointed with paying high annual fee on the platinum.

2023.05.26 19:21 emnnme Car Rental? Different drop off/pickup?
Flying into JFK from DTW in late July and staying in Manhattan for four nights before traveling to Boston for three and flying from Logan to DTW.
Plan is to get a rental car at some point for the drive to Boston. I don’t know that I want to take the train and we’d like to hit some places where it’s difficult to get to from the T.
Looks like there is a $200 difference between getting the car at JFK upon arrival vs getting it later in the week. Plus the $50/day parking cost. All the rental car places on Manhattan indicate they’re sold out.
Am I better off getting a car upon arrival or backtracking later in the week to JFK to pick it up? Can I get to the rental car terminal easily if I were to do that? Are there other options I’m not thinking of? Easier to get a car from LGA instead?

2023.05.26 19:12 sitting00duck00 What happened to JB?
TLDR; I’ve found a huge degradation in the quality of JB amenities+dining, service, terminal / hub services, and especially flight punctuality. I feel like it’s only been since mid-pandemic (2021ish) that things really started to fall apart and wanted to see if others here have had a similar experience. My customer feedback surveys and calls seem to do nothing, so wanted to open this up in a public forum. (Formatting issues from rage typing on my phone)
For context I’m a regular JB flyer (fly JB 6-7x a year), a JB credit card holder w almost 200k points, and FORMERLY a huge fan of the business. I was previously intent on getting Mosaic status, but i no longer care to. I’ve even met the ceo traveling in a regular seat in 2010s and he was awesome and the service was great. Beginning midway through the pandemic (2021 and on) I’ve been having a terrible experience with Jetblue, and not specifically due to the staffing shortages plaguing the rest of the industry.
Punctuality/on-time departure and arrivals: First off, it’s worth mentioning that nearly all of my 20+ flights in the last 2.5 years have been delayed. This was never a huge problem before 2021. I’ve given them a lot of leeway, but jb is not the only carrier I fly and I can see they’ve been significantly worse than American, delta, united, and even spirit lately. What gives?!
Mechanical issues: last month my JB flight at jfk was overfueled and spewed gas over the tarmac causing 2 hour on-tarmac delays. Today our airplane was claimed to be non functional 10 minutes before boarding and we’re currently waiting on 4 hour delay. Note this same thing (last minute flight scrapped due to “issues”) also happened to me in January and around dec of last year. So 4x avoidable mechanical issues in 5 months. Absurd. That’s not even counting the 2 additional flights last year where there were unexplained issues POST boarding the flight causing our flight to co and causing us to miss our departure window and have to wait 1-2 additional hours on the tarmac
Disgusting flight bathrooms: 2x flights in the last 12 months to various destinations had poop all over the bathrooms and the floors and flight attendants (not that I blame them for the poop) didn’t even attempt to clean them up :/
No meal service on flights AND never any snack boxes left. I’ve flown on 3+ 3.5 hour flights from NYC in the last 4 months (Denver, Cabo, Aguadilla) (all of which were delayed extra, of course) and none of them had meal service as they are supposed to… and most flights run out of snack boxes before they even get past the even more space seats! I can’t eat almonds and those boxes are always the only boxes left…
Non-functional TVs. I’m not sure if this is bad luck, but on multiple recent flight the tvs in my row were all non functional. I think this is getting worse from my anecdotal experience.
JFK Hub (terminal 5) bottlenecks have become a huge problem. As flight volumes and routes offerers through this terminal have increased, wait times for food, coffee and other essentials have become unbearable. Why would you put all the takeout food in a tiny corner? Why are there like 3 coffee and 2 breakfast offerings for THE WHOLE TERMINAL. No priority pass, centurion, jb or chase lounges to be seen to make things feel better and remove some of this pressure Ugh. (And cibo market is mid)
The only positives I can think of: - lately less gate checking due to carryon bag fees / blue basic economy fares becoming a thing.. I guess this is good? More expensive though. - generally, flight attendant service is still good (aside from the poop issue) and they clearly try. despite some bad traveler behaviors really testing them (esp during mask mandate)
Anyway I needed to vent, thanks for coming to my Ted talk y’all, interested if your experience has been the same or different

2023.05.26 16:19 j-Sans JFK Airtrain Status to Terminal 1 Today
Neither Google Maps nor City Mapper mention the airtrain not going to terminal 1, or anything about transferring to the shuttle bus. To get to Terminal 1 today, do I still need to transfer on it? Is that still happening? Has anyone here done it, and how much extra time / difficulty does it add?
(Feels bad paying $8.25 / per person for half an airtrain ride, but the alternative is driving...)

2023.05.26 15:58 borkmaster0 Temporary Repairs to Broken Rail Near Track Switch at Canal St
Major A, C, E delays.
Northbound C express from Canal St to 59 St. For local service, take an E train.
This will continue through today.
- Our crews made temporary repairs to a broken rail at Canal St, which affects the track switch that allows northbound C trains to switch from the express track to the local track.
- We cannot make further repairs without a more significant disruption to train service. We will keep you updated on when this will happen.
- For northbound service at Spring St and 23 St, take an E train.
- For service from 50 St to Upper Manhattan, take a southbound train to 42 St-Port Authority Bus Terminal and transfer to a northbound A, C train.
- For service to the Rockaways, consider the Q52-SBS and Q53-SBS buses. Transfer at Rockaway Blvd.
- For service to Howard Beach-JFK Airport, Aqueduct-N Conduit Av, and Aqueduct Racetrack consider the Q11 bus. Transfer at Rockaway Blvd.
- If you can, avoid A, C, E trains.
- Take 1, 2, 3 trains in Manhattan or F, M, R trains from Queens to Manhattan.

2023.05.26 05:19 RiversideAviator Thoughts on Iberia?
Looking at summer flights from JFK to Menorca by way of Madrid or Barcelona most likely. Everything popping up that is up my financial alley so far is either AA or Iberia (both OneWorld so will get some points added to AAdvantage) as marketing carriers at least.
I’ve never flown Iberia but I generally have a favorable view of European flag carriers. International experience (originating in the US) has mostly been US legacy with a few Qantas, Emirates, and Air France sprinkled here and there. But alas, never Iberia.
My question is basically, are they worth a shot if flights are slightly cheaper? I’m going to their home country (been to Spain a few times on Delta) so I guess it would make sense to fly them. I just get the feeling their whole operation is a bit dated. How are the planes? Gate, in-flight service? One thing that peaked my interest was a return flight on an A350 (going on a A330 meh) which is the newest jet but again, how are they from a customer experience? I could check YouTube for reviews but those things are always all over the place.
I fly AA whenever possible so I could go with old reliable (followed by Delta but nothing remotely attractive going to Menorca), I just wanna make sure I’m not missing out on a worthy experience.
Thanks in advance for any user insight!

2023.05.25 14:16 CamatMelon Advised by agent to apply for reimbursement; is there enough of a chance to bother?
I booked a round way trip with AA from JFK to Santorini for my vacation, leaving on the 19th. They partnered with British Airlines for these flights.
The day before, I noticed that my jfk-lgr flight had been cancelled. I didn’t get a notification, and the flight wasn’t rebooked. I only noticed because I checked by chance. British airlines told me I needed to contact American to rebook, so I chatted with a representative for about 3.5 hours. Eventually we got another flight for the day after, leaving from IAD in Washington DC.
We rented a car to make the trip from our home in Philadelphia to DC. Once we got there, we were told our flight was delayed so long we’d miss our connecting flight in London. Instead, they told us that a similar flight was leaving on time through the Baltimore airport, and that they had already rebooked us to fly out there. So, we drove to BWI. Once we got there we were told that the flight was full, so they didn’t transfer our tickets after all. At no time did anyone contact us to let us know.
I was bounced between BA and American for another 3 hours, until an agent rebooked us on a flight to London leaving from Philadelphia. She also told us that if we get stranded in London, AA isn’t liable to find us somewhere to stay, which I found strange.
We drove back to Philly, and got a fine from the rental company for returning our car in the same city we started in. I noticed then that we only had a 1 hour layover in London to get to our connecting flight to santorini.
Turns out the terminal that plane left from was in an entirely different building from where we arrived, and needed a shuttle to transfer. We were two minutes too late to get through security, so they wouldn’t let us on.
We had to spend another few hours again bouncing between both customer services. An agent from AA’s Spain office told me that she wasn’t sure why the previous agent booked us on the Philadelphia flight, because on their system, that transfer shows up as invalid (meaning they knew beforehand that we wouldn’t be able to make it in time). She told me to file a complaint from reimbursement from American Airlines.
After another long wait, we were rebooked on a flight to Athens, and then another to Santorini (had to run through the airport to make it). We eventually arrived about 36 hours after our original arrival time.
In all, we spent nearly half a grand in the car rental, gas, food, etc. We lost even more for the santorini lodging and transportation we weren’t there to use.
Honestly I don’t fly often, and it’s been nearly a decade since I’ve been international. Is this just to be expected? I’m definitely disappointed, since we missed a significant chunk of our vacation time, and a huge part of my budget was spent on these unexpected fees. Where should I go from here? I don’t know what the complaint process is, or what to expect.
*Edit: So we leave tomorrow, and I just attempted to check in. Apparently the return flight for only one of the tickets was cancelled? According to the agent one of the previous people we spoke to forgot to mark something off on our account, so they just dropped her off the flight. It’s not even fully booked, but now they’re telling us we have to pay *extra money for them to fix the flight mistake and rebook her. I’m beyond confused by this- I could understand if we had messed something up and had to pay for our mistake, but all we’ve done is follow the instructions given by the airline.

2023.05.25 05:07 DifferentOpinionHere To me, the Golden Age of Film Scores was the 1960s-1970s-1980s, with some bleeding over into the 1950s and 1990s
When the “Golden Age” of Film Scoring is discussed by experts, they seem to make it out to be the 1930s-1940s, maybe the 1950s, as well. While great musical scores can be found in essentially any time period (the original musical score for Metropolis
 by Gottfried Huppertz is still overwhelmingly amazing), I think of the 1960s-through-the-1980s as the real Golden Age of movie music, with some bleeding over into the 1950s and 1990s on each end of the timeline.
Just look at some of the incredible musical scores that came out between 1960 and 1989 (in alphabetical order):
- 55 Days at Peking (1963; Dimitri Tiomkin)
- The Alamo (1960; Dimitri Tiomkin)
- Assault on Precinct 13 (1976; John Carpenter)
- The Back to the Future trilogy (1985, 1989, and 1990; Alan Silvestri) (okay, the last one is 1990, but it’s close enough)
- Batman (1989; Danny Elfman)
- Beetlejuice (1988; Danny Elfman) (haven’t seen the movie yet, but I’m familiar with the theme)

- A Bridge Too Far (1977; John Addison)
- Bullitt (1968; Lalo Schifrin)
- Chariots of Fire (1981; Vangelis) (haven’t seen the movie yet, but that theme is iconic)
- Chinatown (1974; Jerry Goldsmith)
- El Cid (1961; Miklós Rózsa)
- Cinema Paradiso (1988; Ennio Morricone) (haven’t seen the movie yet, but that score!)
- The Comancheros (1961; Elmer Bernstein)
- Conan the Barbarian (1982; Basil Poledouris)
- Doctor Zhivago (1965; Maurice Jarre)
- Duck, You Sucker (1971; Ennio Morricone)
- The Eagle Has Landed (1976; Lalo Schifrin)
- Enter the Dragon (1973; Lalo Schifrin)
- Escape from New York (1981; John Carpenter and Alan Howarth)
- E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982; John Williams)
- Exodus (1960; Ernest Gold)
- Farewell to the King (1989; Basil Poledouris)
- A Fistful of Dollars (1964; Ennio Morricone)
- For a Few Dollars More (1965; Ennio Morricone)
- Force 10 from Navarone (1978; Ron Goodwin)
- Glory (1989; James Horner)
- The Godfather (1972; Nino Rota)
- The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966; Ennio Morricone)
- The Great Escape (1963; Elmer Bernstein)
- The Guns of Navarone (1961; Dimitri Tiomkin)
- Halloween (1978; John Carpenter)
- How the West Was Won (1962; Alfred Newman)
- The original Indiana Jones trilogy (1981, 1984, and 1989; John Williams)
- Many of the James Bond films (many of which were scored by John Barry), including Dr. No (1962; Monty Norman), the first one to use the now-iconic theme music
- Jaws (1975; John Williams)
- Kelly’s Heroes (1970; Lalo Schifrin)
- Khartoum (1966; Frank Cordell)
- Lawrence of Arabia (1962; Maurice Jarre)
- The Lion in Winter (1968; John Barry) (haven’t seen the movie yet, but the parts of the score that I’ve heard are insane)
- The Magnificent Seven (1960; Elmer Bernstein)
- The Mercenary (1968; Ennio Morricone and Bruno Nicolai)
- Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence (1983; Ryuichi Sakamoto)
- The Mission (1986; Ennio Morricone)
- My Name Is Nobody (1973; Ennio Morricone)
- The Omen (1976; Jerry Goldsmith)
- Once Upon a Time in America (1984; Ennio Morricone)
- Once Upon a Time in the West (1968; Ennio Morricone)
- Patton (1970; Jerry Goldsmith)
- Pee-wee’s Big Adventure (1985; Danny Elfman)
- The Pink Panther (1963; Henry Mancini) (haven’t seen the movie yet, but everybody knows that theme)
- Planet of the Apes (1968; Jerry Goldsmith)
- Psycho (1960; Bernard Herrmann)
- The original Rambo trilogy (1982, 1985, and 1988; Jerry Goldsmith)
- RoboCop (1987; Basil Poledouris)
- Rocky (1976; Bill Conti)
- Silverado (1985; Bruce Broughton)
- Spartacus (1960; Alex North)
- The original Star Wars trilogy (1977, 1980, and 1983; John Williams)
- Superman (1978; John Williams)
- Taxi Driver (1976; Bernard Herrmann)
- The Terminator (1984; Brad Fiedel)
- To Kill a Mockingbird (1962; Elmer Bernstein)
- The Untouchables (1987; Ennio Morricone)
- The War Wagon (1967; Dimitri Tiomkin)
- Where Eagles Dare (1968; Ron Goodwin)
- The Wind and the Lion (1975; Jerry Goldsmith)
- Zulu (1964; John Barry)
That’s a pretty stacked thirty-year period for music. I think one reason for the greatness of this time period is its diversity of quality music. You have traditional-sounding musical scores that soar with more experimental sounds starting to find their place. Also, don’t sleep on the two adjacent decades, the 1950s and 1990s, which have some high-quality film scores as well, such as (in alphabetical order):
- Batman Returns (1992; Danny Elfman)
- Ben-Hur (1959; Miklós Rózsa)
- The Big Country (1958; Jerome Moross)
- Braveheart (1995; James Horner)
- Gettysburg (1993; Randy Edelman)
- Friendly Persuasion (1956; Dimitri Tiomkin)
- High Noon (1952; Dimitri Tiomkin)
- JFK (1991; John Williams)
- Jurassic Park (1993; John Williams)
- North by Northwest (1959; Bernard Herrmann)
- Rough Riders (1997; Peter Bernstein and Elmer Bernstein)
- Saving Private Ryan (1998; John Williams)
- Schindler’s List (1993; John Williams)
- Shane (1953; Victor Young)
- The Ten Commandments (1956; Elmer Bernstein)
So, what would you consider to be the Golden Age of Film Scores, if there is one at all?

2023.05.24 18:41 zyx107 Name change process data point
Hi all - I recently went through the name change process. I was looking for more information on this before going and didn’t find much so wanted to share my experience.
I’m based on NYC. The most convenient location in downtown Manhattan is appointment only and known for turning down name changes even thought you don’t need an appointment (this happened to a friend). I decided to go to JFK terminal 4 global entry enrollment center as a walk-in. There were 4-5 people in line for appointments but I didn’t have to wait, just passed my documents over and was done in 5 minutes.
They only asked for my new passport and global entry card. I also brought my marriage certificate w the name change and old passport as well but she specifically said she didn’t need it and didn’t even look at either document.
I hung out in the area for 10-15 extra minutes and logged into my account, so I could check the name on my account actually changed. I’ve read a few experiences where the officer only added the new passport and didn’t properly process name changes. Overall this was relatively painless other than needing to go to an enrollment center.

2023.05.24 02:50 SirDavidDAR What are some of the best sci-fi shows or movies you’ve watched?
(Edit to include more titles as well as my short personal review)
Looking for recommendations, here is what I have seen and THOROUGHLY ENJOYED! (No particular order) I hope all of these fall under sci-fi, apologies if they would not be considered as such.
-The OA: 9/10 complex plot jumping timelines, and using remote viewing to solve puzzles
-West World: 7/10 awesome plot, great visuals, story did not feel well directed and had slow moments
-Blindspot: 9/10 great cop show, complex timeline and action filled with tons of character development
-12 Monkeys: 8/10 sometimes hard to follow extremely complex timeline following a plague and the apocalypse
-Altered Carbon: 10/10 amazing plot, some of the best visuals, future technology world with murder mystery elements
-Star Crossed: 8/10 who doesnt want to see aliens desegregated in american highschools!
-Lucifer: 10/10 cop show centering around the devil, filled with tons of character growth
-Grimm: 9/10 great take on the brothers grimm, also another cop centric show, seperate episode plots create a long running seasonal plot
-Dark: 9/10 time travel (including the 80's) and a mystery that will leave you entranced, stranger things for a more mature audience
-The man in the high tower: 7/10 what if the axis won world war II? Got very slow at points
-Limitless: 8/10 There is a pill for everything, and its called NZT-48, light show to watch
-Revolution: 10/10 Earth has had a blackout how do societies develop without power, great show tons of character growth
-Terra Nova:10/10 Earth is running out of resources so go back in time and fight dinosaurs for them, light show not many like it during its time
-Timeless: 9/10 Another dive back into the past to change history, light show with likeable characters
-11.22.63: 9/10 Go back in time to save JFK well done timeline, you feel like you are in the 60's in a good way
-The 100: 9/10 Earth is uninhabitable, we think, send 100 young adults from the failing space ship to test it out. Tons of character growth, the best of any show, filled with conflict and action
-Travellers: 9/10 Ai has taken over and has sent human agents through time in order to fight another ai for present day existence while solving apocalyptic destruction of the earth
-The peripheral: 10/10 Take a deep dive in VR controlling a body in the future to wage war in different timelines
-La Brea: 9/10 Elements of Dark, terra nova, and the 100. Character growth following a timeline hopping the prehistoric world.
-Rick and morty: 9/10
-Solar opposites: 10/10
-The good place: 10/10
-In Time: 10/10
-The running man: 10/10

-12 monkeys: 8 (enjoyed show more)
-The island: 9
-Limitless: 8 (enjoyed show more)
-The book of Eli: 9
-Back to the future: 9
-mad max: 8

-Aeon flux: 8
-Maze runners: 8
-Ex Machina: 9
-Donnie Darko: 9

-district 9: 10
-project power: 9
-sucker punch: 9
-walle: 9 (extremely under rated in this category)
-the Adam project: 8
-edge of tomorrow: 8
I know not all of these may be sci-fi. I like dystopian/fanstasy movies and shows that often blend into sci-fi genres. I enjoy grand visuals and very out there themes. I do not focus as much on caring for character growth or depth of plot on movies but almost require it for shows. I do not like slow points at all and seek constant engagement in movies through action and visuals and shows through character growth and deepening plot. However when a movie or show does that and then additional is where I feel is stands out above others.
Also here are some I did not enjoy:
Movies NOT enjoyed:
-children of men: (If you enjoyed this awesome, this is not meant to be controversial for the sake of arguments, rather to find why I did not like this film and how others like it fail to capture my interest, however I read and enjoyed the book after watching the movie) This seems to be controversial NOT liking CoM. For me the reasons are the basis is not interesting, lack of fertility is not extravagant or captivating to me. People rave about the camera work and techniques developed for the film, but much of it was too dark to see anything on the screen at all. It was like a black and white film with a sepia filter. I am pretty sure at many points 5 minutes had passed and not a word was said. If I can not hear the plot, and it is too dark to see, what is the plot? I don't think there was much character growth. The movie was incredibly slow, and I honestly had to force myself to finish it. It was a bleak outlook with almost no redeeming qualities. The movie is a long depressive dream with not much optimism. I enjoy films to escape and find entertainment, this film took a bleak outlook and kicked it down the road for far longer than it should have, would do well with a deeper plot or 5 min run time on youtube.
Now lets talk about where I think it was my taste: Some scenes had action like Theo running through the refuge camp. The plot basis of infertility is interesting however it lacked in creating much depth behind this. The movie is one long chase thriller scene.
All in all it lacked any entertainment value. Dull plot, hollow characters, dark scenes, few spoken words. It got a lot wrong as far as entertaining, maybe took too much inspiration from current reality in, with the far too common extremely pessimistic view everyone seems to have about everything.
-Ready player one
Shows NOT enjoyed:

2023.05.22 19:49 akagtt Traveling to the USA for the first time as a citizen of EU, am I missing something?
I am attending a seminar in the USA and will be traveling solo, also will be the first time I am traveling by plane anywhere, so bear with me.
- Authorized ESTA
- A return ticket
- Proof of employment and proof of using vacation days
- Seminar, accommodation, and Turo receipts
- Proof of my bank account balance with the bank's stamp on it + around 700 USD in cash.
- Printed check-in that I will exchange for a boarding pass
- International driver's permit
Do I need anything else? I am kinda stressed out about this whole thing so I don't want to miss anything important. EDIT:
Almost forgot the most important question: I have a 1-hour and 30-minute layover at JFK in NYC for my flight to Orlando. Both the flight that lands on JFK and that goes to Orlando are on the same terminal, will I need to pick up my checked bag or will it "automatically" be transferred to another plane?
(sorry for poor terminology)
