This was an easy way to get back to the airport, changing from the underground to the Skytrain. Then we used it to jump between terminals. Most enjoyable and easy to use.

Very efficient mode of travel. Only negative would be the distance one has to travel in the various terminals to get to the train.

This service is just great. We had a couple of hours before checkin and wanted something to eat. We just hopped on the air train as easy as and stopped at another terminal that had a diner. Then back on again. A free wonderful service.

The air train was very easy to use. Clear directions everywhere, perfect timing and employees were very friendly, proactive and helpful. Loved it!

The AirTrain makes it very easy to get around inside JFK airport and to make connections to the MTA or LIRR. The price really ought to be lower however, but since it's the only game in town, ya gotta pay.

I would suggest that you arrange for a wheelchair to pick him up and take him to the next terminal. Only because it might be a little long walk to the Airtrain. The directions to finding it is fairly simple but the walk... More
