Return from Midtown to JFK early morning

Hi all

Our return flight to London on 30th December is from JFK at 8.30 am. How long should we expect the journey to take at that time? Do you think we would find a taxi ok, or should we try to book a car?

Thanks!

Given you'll need to be there at 6.30am, I would take a cab. You should be able to find one easily and at that hour, it should only take about 30 minutes to get there.

There will be four of us, including two bleary-eyed sons. I don't think the train would be wise!

BA 178 - yes. I know it well.

Simply take the train - hook up with the JFK AirTrain and right into Terminal 7. It is really easy.

Taxi's are also very readily accessible. There is traffic so the train is actually better.

The amount of traffic at 6:00 AM is negligible. --that is when you will be leaving. The only thing I would suggest is that you pay attention to weather report. If it is, like today, cold and icy you may want to leave extra time so your cabbie can slow down without you feeling pressure.
