Flights to NYC.

Aer Lingus via Dublin.

Usually cheap and you get to clear US immigration/customs at Dublin so you avoid the queues at their end.

First place I look for flights to the states now. It's great getting off the plane and being able to just walk through.

Going through immigration/customs at major US airports is quicker than going through the same atMagland airport...I was in San Francisco a completely of weeks ago and it’s mostly automated now with loads of terminals that check your passport

Immigration is an absolute piece of piss in the US these days. Mostly automated and a cursory stop at a manned booth and straight in.

Went through Sandiego last year and was standing outside the airport less than 10 minutes after the plane door was opened, and that included collecting luggage. Quickest ive ever got through a US airport before.

For the OP, jack's flight club is your friend here. Well worth the £15 fee.

What’s the best website to find flights to NYC. Sky scanner is good but then the baggage isn’t included and looks like it has to be added with the airline directly for some strange reason. Best I’ve found so far is £430 each baggage included from Manchester on the dates I want to go. Am I unlikely to get anything better? January 2020.
Try BA.com if you are looking for hotels also. Took the missus in April and booked Flights and Hotel through British Airways. Was a really good deal

Only if you have an ESTA that has been used before I believe? I waited 1.5 hours at JFK last week as 1st time I had used the ESTA.

Must have changed a lot since I was last there then. It was organised chaos.

Beautiful thing about flying through DUB, no passport checks on departure or arrival at NCL either. All passport checks done on departure on the international legs at either JFK or DUB. Dublin airport is a breeze as well

Found 2 decent flights from Newcastle, connecting at Heathrow with 1 hour 15 between flights (Both BA). That should be enough time shouldn't it?
Possibly, if you know your way through the terminal, but having done similar last year I made sure we had a bit longer when we go back in September.

Depends where you’re staying. Flights to Newark tend to be cheaper. I’m here now and paid $360 return with united. Check if anyone’s doing any sales soon..

I wouldn’t. Did the reverse a couple of years ago and very nearly missed the connection to Newcastle - flight north ended up boarding late so we made it by about 5 mins

It's different going inbound though as you have to go through security again. When the Newcastle flight lands you they will scan your boarding card for the NYC flight and you go up the escalator into the main departures lounge at T5. No security check. All NYC flights leave from T5 as well so no chance of having to goto T3. Total transit time will be less than 5 minutes. As long as you have enough time to get to satellite terminal B or C (extra 10 mins) you will be fine.

They would automatically put you on the next flight and book you a hotel if that happened. So if you don't have work the next day then thats fine. Happened to me last summer and I rejected the offer and insisted they book me a taxi.

This, BA was the cheapest I could find when we booked back in Jan, especially when it was paired up with the hotel booking.
