8 Hours In JFK Airport

Many of us have been in this situation where we have to catch a connecting flight and transit at an airport for a few hours. But what do you do if it is an 8 hours transit? Airport lounges or exiting the airport to visit the city are alternatives. During my transit, I didn't want to get stuck in a jam at New York, going through the security again and the airport lounges in terminal 8 at JFK were packed due to construction going on in other lounges. So I hop from gates to gates, cafes to cafes and spent my time capturing sunset shots.

A week and a half ago we had a 6 hr layover in Mexico City. Only the heat prevented us from exploring the city on a HOHO bus. We did what you did except that the airport in MX city is not that huge.

Hi all, thanks for visiting my blog and for the comments. Very Happy Smiley

Eileen: Tell me about that. I was planning to use the American Airlines Admiral's Club lounge at JFK T8. My plan failed due to the constructions.

Photo Cache: Sometimes our plan backfires. Sad Smiley

Stan & Peter: I hope so. At least I have this photo. Very Happy Smiley

Hahaha I wish I have 8 hours transit so I can do some shopping and have nice coffee and cake and idle around for a while. Will tell more in my blog when I come to my adventure of almost missing my connecting flight where I wish I had 8 hours transit lol.

I've had several multi hour layovers but I have not spent them as creatively as you. Great shot.
