    • Baggage Transfer

      by Bainjoh Online Now Dec 13, 2016 at 3:50 AM

      We are flying to Newark NJ from Edinburgh for Christmas via London Heathrow. The Edinburgh to Heathrow leg is via British Airways and the Heathrow to Newark leg is by Virgin Atlantic (business class). Do we have to reclaim our baggage at London Heathrow and then rebook it onto Virgin or will it be transferred direct? And will it be the same for coming back? Thanks.

      Newark-Liberty to New Brunswick

      by footstool Online Now Apr 3, 2016 at 7:14 AM

      Hi fellow VT'ers. My group will be hosting 30-35 guests from the West Coast, in New Brunswick, NJ, over Memorial Day weekend. They'll be arriving Friday and departing Monday. It seems like a bad idea for me, and a few volunteers, to drive 30 miles each way to the airport, on the bookends of a 3 day getaway weekend! What are the mass transit combinations (NJT train/ bus and/or PATH) to New Brunswick? I can easily fetch the guests from the New Brunswick NJT station or the Rutgers campus. Thanks a whole lot! Really appreciate it.

    • Is 1 hour 25 mins enough layover time in Newark? SYR-EWR-LHR

      by fernweh126 Online Now Aug 30, 2014 at 5:29 AM

      So do you guys think 1 hour and 25 mins layover time will be enough for me to make the connection? I'm flying from Syracuse to Newark then from Newark to Heathrow on the 9th December 2014 (I know it's Christmas season and there're bound to be some issues). But I also recall that usually flights from Syracuse landed in Newark of Terminal C and departs from this same terminal for flights to Heathrow.

      Advice on layover time would be appreciated! I have very limited choice, and maximum layover time I could find is 1 hour and 25 mins.

      Loadging in Newark, but fun in Manhattan

      by gecor Online Now May 10, 2010 at 9:22 AM

      I'm attending a wedding in Plainfield, NJ.
      That's why I would like to be in a hotel close to that area, I want to have the option to go to Manhattan every day...
      A) Because hotels are cheaper in NJ areas
      B) Because of the wedding :D

      My question is. What specific area do you recommend me to stay, so I can get a public transport to New York every day. If so, what kind of transport is a good option.
      My idea is to leave every morning to NY and come back to the the hotel at night.

      Thanks for your response.

      Airport bus from Newark airport

      by gilabrand Online Now Jan 5, 2010 at 4:49 AM

      Has anyone used the airport bus at Newark airport to get to Manhattan? Was it easy to access, and how long a ride was it? Basically, I need to get to Larchmont (Westchester), but there don't seem to be many transportation options if I am not prepared to shell out100 or more on a private taxi. The other alternative suggested to me was taking the bus ($15) to Grand Central, and getting on the Metro North. Does anyone know of a reasonably priced shared van that could get me to Larchmont?

    • Amtrak Station to Newark, Airport---ease of doing?

      by ddschur Online Now Oct 3, 2008 at 6:42 AM

      To all:

      First, let me thank you in advance for any answers or comments on my question.

      I will be traveling via Amtrak from Wilmington, DE to EWR to catch an international flight.

      Amtrak has a connection in Northern New Jersey which they call the Newark Airport connection.

      My questions are:

      How easy is the connection to the connecting train to EWR?

      How long to the terminals?

      We will have several pieces of luggage...problem with space for luggage and/or help available?

      I presume that getting to the international terminal shouldn't be more difficult to any of the other terminals...correct?

      In general, I am basically wondering whether taking the train to EWR from Wilmington is easy and worth it?

      Anyone adding some insights will be much appreciated!

    • Luggage storage?

      by sabsi Online Now Sep 16, 2008 at 1:15 AM


      I thought somebody might have an idea for us here...

      Here's our problem: We are going to the Caribbean in November via Newark and on the way back from there we are going to spend a few days in NYC. Which means we need summer clothes for the British Virgin Islands but we also need a winter coat for the days in New York. I am not too excited about the idea of taking my winter coat with me all the time because I am sure it won't fit into my bag and I am sure I will be stared at if I wear it on the way from the airport to the hotel in the USVI and especially on the ferry to the BVI.

      Is there any luggage storage facility in Newark airport where I could leave the winter stuff for 10 days? Any other ideas?

      Thanks for your help.

      3. I am told that we will swarmed by so called luggage porters, who will insist that we avail their paid services to move around with our luggage with in the airport. Is it true. if yes, how to avoid them, as we are on a tight budget.
