    If bags are checked through, you should still have time for a quick chower at T4 FLounge before heading over to TBIT. Just make it a quick one!

    Just remember 25% of USA flights are more than 15 minutes late in arriving .However the maincauses are congestion and weather,
    Congestion mainly affects the East Coast and Particularly NYC area airports.Takeoff can be late because too many flights are scheduled and arrivals often late because of flight path problems.However you have allowed 2hours at JFK and so should do it easily.
    Weather can affect anywhere but particularly the centre with severe storms or the south with cyclones.DFW certainly can be affected but again you have allowed sufficient time even if you have to change terminals.Just make sure you ask more than once which gate your flight is leaving from as it can change frequently and with us happened just less than an hour before departure and meant going back to the terminal we had just come from.
    LAX despite its size and traffic does not feature in the airports with the worst delays(just worst officialdom,computer systems etc.).

    Hi Reggie, I'm doing the QF10late-QF94 transit in four weeks.

    I believe the new oneworld lounge on TBIT is to open within the next 3½ weeks and will have shower facilities.

    My research seems to indicate it would be better to shower at T4 before you head to TBIT; but given the systematic lateness of the inbound and that I have been advised that QF94 will generally wait for QF108 if it's not more than an hour or two behind schedule; I would look to having a shower in JFK, either at T8 before you take the train or at T7.

    FWIW, I have a 4 hour transit at JFK and intend to shower there.

    Mmmm, maybe I should give 10-late a miss then. How easy is the JFK transfer?

    VERY easy. About 90 seconds on the train, at that time of day the run every 5 minutes.

    AirTrain JFK > Around JFK Airport

    Just make sure you take the "All Terminals Loop".
