  • Morning departure is around 39% more expensive than an evening flight, on average*.
  • While a variety of airlines journey from Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport (SYD) to John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK), we recommend looking at flights from providers American Airlines and Qantas Airways. With many daily flights from Sydney to JFK, any delays or cancellations can be quickly amended.
  • John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK) is the primary airport servicing New York City and is the largest in the area; however, for travellers looking to stay near New Jersey, in areas such as Lower Manhattan or Staten Island, it is worth looking for flights into Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR). While the airport is much smaller and can therefore accommodate less traffic, it is located closer to these areas than JFK Airport and can offer shorter drive times.
  • For travellers who are able to drive and are seeking to explore nearby American cities such as Philadelphia, it is generally advisable to fly into JFK Airport rather than Newark Airport or other surrounding airports; JFK Airport is the primary airport in the area and able to accommodate a greater volume of flights.
  • For travellers with an early flight out of Sydney and looking to find a hotel nearby, we suggest staying at the Rydges Sydney Airport Hotel. Located across from the International Terminal at Sydney Airport, the Rydges Sydney Airport Hotel is brilliant for anyone not wanting to worry about the journey to the airport.
  • If you plan on driving to Sydney Airport, make sure to park in car park P7. This dedicated car park for international travellers is only a 5min walk from the terminal. Alternatively, a valet service is available for a fee, just outside the departure gates.
  • If you want to leave the car at home while you holiday, we recommend catching the Sydney Airport Line train that runs throughout the day between the airport and the city centre. While during peak times the train can get very crowded, it is in general cheaper than taking a taxi.

The entertainment is good but frustrating that it is constantly interrupted with announcement about everything. I have never heard that many on any other plane. The announcement about customs paperwork was long and done 2 times in English and 2 times in Arabic. There safety video is soooo long and again is done in two languages. It was just all too much. Besides that everything was great."

Cons: "Front row with a toddler meant that we couldn't lift the armrests up and get her to lay down. She had to lie on the floor, but when we hit some turbulence, we had to wake her and sit her back up with us. The second part of the leg was much better as we were on a normal row seat"

I confirmed the wheelchair option well advance before her travel date in Qatar Airways Web site. I got the confirmation also in the Qatar Airways Web site. I usually fly with my family as I have a big family with couple of children and elderly. I will never fly Qatar again, this was the 1st and the last fly with Qatar airways."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The first flight of my journey was delayed which made me late for my next two connecting flights. I arrived on vacation a day late. Paid for a hotel and activities that I never used.

Cons: "I was NOT able to choose our seats, so we couldn't sit together and were in the last two rows, in middle seats! It also took us 15 minutes to jog to the opposite end of the airport to just make our connecting flight. I would not fly with Cathay again!"

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "The crew were very polite, efficient and attentive."
Cons: "On the first leg of our journey the seats were very difficult to adjust. We required the help of the attendants."

Cons: "old plane"

Cons: "When the crew in the terminal begins moving the economy class passengers in the aircraft its all a mess. Passengers with seats in the front and the middle are blocking the hallway of the aircraft which force the passengers with seats at the end waiting with a long line.The Cathay flight from NY to HKG handle in a much better manner. They let the passengers with seats at the end go in the aircraft first so that these passengers will never blocking the hallway or making any long line.Hope the flight to New York can improve in this aspect."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Gate staff was not patient and friendly. No advanced notification before flight cancellation. Poor communication after flight cancellation. No instructions for remediation for flight cancellation only tell customer to get checked in luggage bag and go home. No initiative to handle the incident. We waited for 2 hours at the counter for explanation and information for re-arrangement for the flight. Really disappointed with this flight."

Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "The crew was uninformed and unobservant to actual conditions in the cabin. They kept the air conditioning on and no one was available to address the situation. People started to take their winter coats out of the overhead bins and sit in their seats with coats on. They spent a significant amount of time repeatedly requesting that the window shades be moved up or down. Frankly, if I buy a window seat I should have the option to look out the window if I'm not disturbing my neighbors."

Cons: "Would have liked to have been offered a beverage more often"

Pros: "Excellent crew and nothing to complain apart from the economy seats being a bit stiff."

Cons: "Plane was very warm"

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "Great movie choices"
Cons: "Seat spacing was horrible"

Cons: "When we booked we asked for a child's meal and we advised of allergies. However I don't see why we would have to ask as we booked a child's seat and you have to provide the age which she is 4. When onboard from SYD/HKG and HKG/LONDON, NO meal was available for our child except for what everyone else was eating. She is anaphylaxis to shellfish, she was given shrimp!!!!! I am sure if she was given a child's meal she would not have got this. We were then told we have to advise the airline 12 hours before we fly that we want a child's meal. I am sorry but when travelling we should not have to do this and nor have we ever had to do it on any other airline. Poor poor poor!!!!"

Pros: "The food quality was great, and they had cup noodles available upon request throughout the whole flight, which was a nice touch. The staff was lovely and very helpful, there were endless entertainment options, and the seats were roomy."

Pros: "I would like most of the employees of Cathay Pacific works in your company, they are very nice and also very kind to treat customers and kindly help us to solve problems during our traveling. I really appreciated. and I can say nothing but many thanks to all of Cathay Pacific employees. Ying Tao, SUN"

Pros: "Excellent, kind, professional crew and timely flight."

Pros: "-Staff were incredibly attentive and gracious at every step. Could not ask for more from them. The flight attendants were also really conscientious but also discrete about making sure that things were comfortable to passengers, for example making sure that windows were closed most of the time and lights were down so that people could sleep in between meals, and moving someone that was sick to a more comfortable and private seat, both for the sake of the sick individual and for the comfort of the people that had initially been sitting around them. -The complementary movie options were great and really helped pass the time on the 24+hr flight from NYC to Western Australia. -1 free large checked bag, which was very nice. -I think the complementary food and snacks were really yummy and generous, for airline food. I very much enjoyed the meals and snacks. Also, the complementary wine was a nice treat and tasted surprisingly good. -The complementary pillows and blankets were nice, warm, and soft. -The flights were on time, much better than American airlines that I've flown on. -The bathrooms were cleaned regularly throughout the flight and were much cleaner and nicer smelling than other airlines that I've been on."
Cons: "The only thing thing that could really be improved upon (which is not as much the airline's fault as the plane manufacturer's fault) is that the economy seats and cabin layout could be more comfortable for long flights. I understand how hard it must be to design a plane that fits that many people and that's comfortable for 24+hrs of flying, but a few improvements could relatively easily be made I think, which would improve the experience dramatically: -If the seats were softer (and perhaps more ergonomically designed with an average person's shape in mind) it would make a world of difference, I think. -Being able to put the arm up on the wall side of the window seat would make it much more comfortable. -Padding on the arms would also help. -Of course more leg space and wider seats would make a world of difference, but I know that is tough to do since space is limited."

Pros: "Everything went us per schedule. The staff nice and polite."
Cons: "The seating is too cramped ."

Pros: "amazing they offer a meal!"
Cons: "as it was a red eye flight it would've been great if there were more seats open so one could sleep. the leg room is pretty small even for a not-tall person (5'4")"

Pros: "The staff were very friendly at all times. Everything was clean an the flight atgandants were always near by incase you needed anything else."

Pros: "The people were very kind and very respectful."
Cons: "Well I think this doesn’t have nothing to do with the airline, I guess... any way the airport is dirty, and very to buy something you got have more money than you think, the salesperson are not friendly. To get to the plane they checked everybody’s luggage again in the crazy way!"

Pros: "Aircraft condition, crew professionalism"
Cons: "Boarding process in Lima airport"

Pros: "In-flight entertainment is very good with a good selection of movies and TV shows."
Cons: "Flight was first delayed 1 hour then jumped to 3 more hours. Gate was constantly changing so we relaxed at a nearby gate. Never heard a boarding call. Then there's a security check right before you get on the plane so we have to throw away bottles of water that were bought in the terminal after passing initial security. Ridiculous!! How are we to keep hydrated on a 10 hour flight without being able to bring water on the plane?? The flight attendants should, at least, come around with cups of water. Service on LAN was excellent 10 years ago but has deteriorated when it changed to LATAM."

Pros: "Was cold so requested a blanket, was told we will see ..Blankets were given to passengers in the front seat but I was ignored. I usually carry a warm scarf so do not need airline blankets."

Pros: "I flew back on a LAN plane and the experience was nothing short of what i expect from LAN. There isnt a single complaint. thank you."

Pros: "I like the service, the staff are more helpful to us and lots of different from other airline services. Especially they treat every passenger equally or all the same with given out for any extra cost e.g. food, drinks, entertainement any thing we need while we are up in the air needs. Different from the first class section service in special airfare cost. Love to fly every time when I want to visit my families around the world. Keep it up the good work LATAM Fika Maiava - Sydney"

Pros: "Rescheduled on to a different airline."
Cons: "Delayed"

Cons: "When my husband and I arrived to Lima airport 2,5 hours before our scheduled flight, we could not check in because flight was overbooked? There was a seat for one of us (we overheard same conversation at counter next to our - 2 passengers, one available seat)... Explanation was they had technical problems with original plane and they had to replace it with smaller one and everybody else used online checkin in last 48 hours...Everybody else used online checkin?! Is that the rule? Last 48 h of my trip in Peru i did not have internet access, but if it's the only way to get your seat, you paid for months in advance, then I would find some solution. At the end, staying persistent in our request,we were on the scheduled flight (some "miracle" happened and we got 2 seats, next to each other, as same as couple from counter next to us)"

Cons: "Earphones plug difficult to fit Toilet cleanliness not adequate on occasion"

Cons: "More cabin staff only 3 attendants for a packed flight Long wait for another plane to land so people could get on Late landing Generally uncomfortable due to full plane and inconsiderate people May not use again"

Cons: "Very quick through immigration and customs. Then a short cab ride to city."

Pros: "Good value for money."
Cons: "Expensive wifi. Limited entertainment selection."

Cons: "Poor food quality. When long haul involves 4 flights in total MUCH more variety is required. When the snacks are predominantly cheese based, then that's repeated x4 Entertainment was poor. Not enough comedy, not enough documentaries and again by the 4 th flight, well just try to sleep as you've done all the good movies"

Cons: "Gate 61 for boarding is too far away and requires a lot of walking....very strange design of the airport"

Pros: "Head rest helped me get sleep in economy section"

Pros: "Good and crew were very goid"
Cons: "Seats were very hard and very cramped for such a long flight"

Pros: "Aircraft, crew, comfort, ground staff."
Cons: "Food and entertainment are average. Movies are old."

Pros: "the nice crew- the relative speed of boardinf"
Cons: "compared with Emirates, the movies/Tv choices are very limited and in addition, only available -after take off and stop being available 30 min before landing. very disaappointing compared with emirates when we can start watching content from the minute we are on the plane until the very last minute. also, the plane had very limited space dedicated to stretch legs compared to other A380 from other companies."

Pros: "The entertainment is good but there could be a better selection."
Cons: "It took 2 hours to check in, literally was going to fall over but the time i got to the desk. There was a small child who screamed for about half of the journey."

Pros: "Flight was very comfortable from boarding to landing."
Cons: "Food was just very normal and lack variety. Should provide more options."

Cons: "Delayed for 13 hours"

Pros: "I wish I could remember the fight attendant’s name - she was probably the best flight attendant I’ve ever had"
Cons: "Plane was very crowded as compared to the A380 I flew over on. also the meal services on the Trip over was much better than this return flight"

Cons: "Lied to me about my seat assignment. I was teady to pay for extra leg room bufor they declined and said they assigned extra leg room seat. But later I found that it is Norma seat. Liers"

Pros: "timeliness, in-flight entertainment, food"

Cons: "Crew was not as attentive as Emirates Airlines."

Pros: "Good airline and I like the fact that kids and seniors are boarded first regardless of seating."
Cons: "Food was horrible and most of the time there wasnt an option between veg and non veg even when the flight was mostly empty. Taste was really bad."

Pros: "مجال الكراسى"
Cons: "المضيفين"

Pros: "Ample storage available in window seat. Window seat for solo business traveler is nice; private."

Pros: "crew"
Cons: "bed"

Pros: "Staff excellent on board Plane very high standard"
Cons: "Waiting 1.25 hrs to check in in SYD- with 10 and 12 year old children Check-in staff member unclear on passport requirements"

Pros: "The movie options and food were good."
Cons: "This flight had the potential to be good as the entertainment and food options were good, but I felt cramped and the volume of the surrounding passengers was awful. There were three crying babies, which I know neither the airline nor the families themselves can control, as well as one child with special needs who was making a lot of noise the whole flight. I wasn't able to sleep at all for that reason. Additionally, I was disappointed that the flight was late and that the deplaning process was so long – we taxied for a long time and there was only one staircase, so we were very late."

Pros: "Good"

Pros: "All aspects"

Cons: "There is no politeness of cabin crew and there not having ample stuff as snacks and liquor. They are not desire to serve you as long flight India to PHIONIX"

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good"

Pros: "Flight was comfortable and the A380 is super quiet. Cabin crew were helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Check in was a disaster with tickets issued in the wrong names. Also It wasn't until the night before flying we realised they'd booked our 3 month old daughter on a separate flight!"

Cons: "Child screaming for 12 hours straight. No action taken to resolve."

Pros: "All was fine."
Cons: "While all was fine a the food could have been a little better, especially when it is a 14 hour flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The service was spectacular to begin with. It was consistent, frequent and ultimately satisfying. It was a very comfortable ride with enough space for a broad guy like me. What I love most is their selection of entertainment. I have to say that in the 16-17 hours I flew with them (which I just came home from) I never felt claustrophobic, uncomfortable, or bored. I was in the middle seat. I love their flight progress and flight time. Their timing was very accurate. In fact, both flights landed earlier than expected."
Cons: "I didn't really dislike anything on the return trip. It was everything I expected and more"

Cons: "If you are flying from AUH to JFK, they pre-clear you for US Customs. What they don't tell you is that the cut-off to get to the gate is one hour before departure. I took a leisurely stroll down to the gate when he signs said 'boarding soon' and was denied entry to the flight. The next one was in seven hours, so I spent the night in the terminal. The big slap in the face, aside from how rude the staff were: they won't just put you on the next flight. You have to buy a new ticket, full fare. It cost me more to get home than the original round trip ticket did to begin with. Trying to discuss this is fruitless - they are absolutely not interested in helping, but instead use phrases like "you are the one that is wrong" and "why should we pay for your mistake". Essentially, I was held hostage in Abu Dhabi and forced to pay a heavy charge to leave."

Pros: "granted food voucher"
Cons: "movie selection poor. 3 hour delay"

Pros: "Bussiness class was excellent."

Pros: "Very old and not up to date . Not enough choice ."
Cons: "Wider choice more current content especially movies ."

Cons: "Middle Seat"

Pros: "the journey, staff and overall experience"
Cons: "nil"

Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "Nothing to like."
Cons: "The check-in cashier was very rude. maybe she should retake the course in hospitality. Again, it was operates by AA so what should I expect?"

Cons: "we had a layover for about 7 hours. The airport was cold. But the departure lounge was extremely cold, very uncomfortable. Even wearing a hooded jacket, I was very cold and my hands were numb. And we waited about 3 hours in the departure area."

Pros: "nice plane"
Cons: "The gate was closed. people sitting on floor"

Cons: "Na"

Pros: "Seats were comfy, crew was helpful, in flight entertainment was very good. Overall quite good..."
Cons: "Nothing really.."

Pros: "Comfort on plane was good"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "I wouldn't fly Etihad again because they lost my bags twice"

Pros: "OVERALL"
Cons: "ASMA"

Pros: "The aircraft was spacious and it allowed one to move about and stretch one's limbs."
Cons: "The spacing between the economy class seats - particularly when the person in front reclines."

Pros: "There is no single thing to like. Flight is delayed rudiculously and the seating is pathetic. Not a single penny worth for the money we spent.. Etihad sucks.."
Cons: "There is no single thing to like. Flight is delayed rudiculously and the seating is pathetic. Not a single penny worth for the money we spent.. Etihad sucks.."
