How long is the flight from Sydney Airport to JFK Airport?

What airlines fly direct from Sydney Airport to JFK Airport?

Kennedy Intl.), you’ll be able to add your stopover city to your "been there" list. Take a squiz at the one-stop flights available with Virgin Australia, Delta Air Lines or Virgin Atlantic.

Sydney Airport to JFK Airport Flying Tips How to survive a long flight:
  • Pretend you're a camel about to embark on a long trip into the desert and drink lots of water. Staying hydrated helps keep that tired, sluggish feeling in check.
  • A good seat choice can make a big difference on a long-haul journey. Often, it's one part luck and two parts smart planning. For your best chance at peace and quiet, take a seat toward the back of the plane near a window. If you want to move around a bit, choose an aisle or emergency exit seat so you can get in and out without disturbing your neighbours.
  • Never crane your neck trying to see whether the fish or pork looks the most delicious again. Bring your own food on board — pastries, deluxe sandwiches or a decent stash of your fave junk food are some substitutes for airline food.
  • Had enough screen time? Remember to bring a variety of things to keep you entertained. Whatever floats your boat — a gripping novel, travel-sized Scrabble or your journal.
  • A good night's sleep is one of the most underrated luxuries of all time. Check the net for a proper travel pillow to help you get a decent kip at 38,000 feet.
What to wear on a long flight:
  • Unless you're flying in business or first class, you'll quickly realise that long-haul flights are no place to get all dolled up. Kit yourself out comfortably in plenty of layers and your tried-and-tested sneakers in case your feet swell.
  • Being stuck in your seat for hours can leave you with sore, stiff legs. But in a worst-case scenario, it can lead to potentially life-threatening blood clots. Walking around the cabin and doing exercises while you're sitting down as well as putting on a good pair of compression socks can help avoid deep vein thrombosis (DVT).
Can you take food on international flights:
  • Bagels, lollies, your famous homemade muffins ... Sure, bring 'em along. Nothing beats having a supply of goodies on hand to help make that lengthy flight zip by. Just adhere to gel and liquid restrictions and leave the tuna casserole at home — it's poor etiquette to bring smelly food on planes.

If you need a good meal upon arrival look elsewhere as no dining options. There is a free shuttle but only leaves on the hour.

                                        The location and history of this hotel is superb. We loved its proximity to Times Square and midtown and had an amazing stay.

                                          Cramped and overcrowded reception, only 1 elevator working, dirty, damp and sub standard rooms considering the cost. Staff were friendly but that did not make up for the poor state of the facility.
