You should get orange transfer cards if going to JFK. There is a thread somewhere in here about transferring on qf107
have a read of that.
Im going in end of may on qf107 also in Y+ but leaving on Saturday.
Fingers crossed for new QF TBIT lounge to be ready. the mid year setback was to open in may/June. Here is hoping its May and not June. Does anyone mind checking how the new lounge in tbit is coming along and maybe guess when when it will be ready. Might start a new thread closer to the time.
The wife and number two (16 years old) went to LA last week for 5 days.. Arrived at LAX on QF15 (J) on Good Friday morning at 6:30 and were in at their room at Sheraton Gateway LAX at 7:30AM. They even commented that the US Immigration guy was nice. The only other flight there was the Virgin one from BNE. It's a fluke I'm sure. It can be a shocker when you arrive at the same time as the El Al flight or something from Asia.. But they know you are coming for the 107 to JFK. So I wouldn't worry too much. Just don't forget your bags..
Incidentally they came home on the QF16 yesterday which on May the 1st transfers to TBIT. For the first time they used one of those remote stands at the West Gates.. That Terminal 4 is a dump.
So if I put in 15/4/14 and then create a report.....if my plane gets in at 0800-0900 then the wait time max HAS BEEN been 30 minutes?
Seems about right to me for the past 3 flights I have got in at that time.....hope it continues!
In June 2013, surprisingly, LAX customs and immigration were a breeze. Very short queues. The only downside was the need to wait on the inbound flight for 25 minutes until the 6.30am US Border Control opening time - not allowed to open the plane doors until this time....
2 hours and 10 minutes between flights does not seem much / enough time but as per Simo there will be others like you and the plane will wait.
On April 29th, travelling on QF107 in J, and arriving at 630am, it took 30 minutes to clear C & I at Lax and reach kerbside....would have been quicker if the officer didn't insist on my +! and I approaching his booth separately:shock:
