My wife and I are looking to fly to New York in October, travel the US and fly back from San Franscisco. I have found a flight that takes us to Hawaii first, before continuing to New York.
Brisbane - New York
Departs Brisbane: Friday October 18, 2013 6:35pm
Arrives Honolulu Intl: Friday October 18, 2013 7.55am
Departs Honolulu Intl: Friday October 18, 2013 4.20pm
Arrives John F Kennedy Intl: Saturday October 19, 2013 6.55am
As we have never before travelled outside of the country, I am hoping for some feedback on this idea.
If we fly to Hawaii, is this when the international security checks take place, THEN we board a domestic flight to New York? OR is it considered the same flight so we just transfer planes and do the security checks at JFK?
This would help me choose the flight, as the 8 hour delay until plane change can be used to get through all the security side of things.
