Looking for flights in sept 11 to New York and wondering which arrivals airport are usually cheaper? Flown into both in past and know transfer times/ cost into Manhattan. Want to go 17.9.11 for 7 nights out of Manchester, prefer direct. Is it best to book now or hang on till later? Karen

JFK is usually cheaper i find. Distance wise they are about the same to NY City. Just depends if you want to be Manhattan side (JFK) or Jersey side (Newark)

can you not fly to La Guardia (LGA) as well?

Do a search using Kayak.com for all three and see what you come up with.

Done both and found Newark cheaper and quicker by cab. Also for a change on the way back to the airport we travelled by train for the experience and it was only $14. Got the train from Penn Station right into Newark Airport - I'd recommend it!

Yes, was planning to use train into Newark both ways if flying into there.
Already checked Penn to our hotel and easily do-able subway ride.
Checked LGA but not able to fly direct and the total time including stops make it much too long a journey.

Newark cheaper by cab?

I'm going soon flying into Newark and Flying out of JFK.

Staying near broadway but looking at taxi estimations its $80ish from Newark to Manhattan... yet $40 fixed from manhattan to JFK...

is the $80 overestimated or??..

Karen.. if you're looking for just flights and are under 26(even if over) have a look at http://www.statravel.co.uk that's who i'm booked with and seemed the cheapest by far for the dates we're travelling.

If you fancy doing the train then definitely go for it. I wished we'd done it sooner as spent a small fortune on cabs. It was straight there no problem and Penn Station is easy to navigate as well.

tOmm its maybe changed now pricewise since I was there 3 years ago but in four times of visiting NY using cabs to and from both airports we were cheaper with Newark every time - but then it could depend on where you are in Manhattan. We were always Midtown at 7th/8th Avenue 48-50th Street or thereabouts so more nearer the Lincoln Tunnel which takes you over to Newark. Suppose if you are downdown it may well be cheaper to get to JFK. I felt the cab ride to and from JFK a lot longer than from Newark too, but then again depends which part of Manhattan you stay in.

How much did it cost if you remember?

I'm staying on 99th street.

I would have thought it would be safer. I imagine they would tighten up security or am I completely off the mark?

I was looking at booking for Vegas, would have flown out/home on that day & didn't have a problem with it!

Karen - meant to say (before I rambled about the train/cabs) that we found flights to Newark were cheaper than JFK - but probably depends from where you are flying from. We were Edinburgh and had to get a connecting flights from either London or Dublin. Last flight we went was direct from Edinburgh but it was a package with the hotel included so can't really say if it was cheaper or not. You will find it cheaper from Manchester than we did at least!

tOmm - cab fare was $50 if I remember right from Newark. Think JFK was maybe $60. Will be more now no doubt. They are controlled at the airport end so its usually written on the ticket by the cab controller(?) who hails each cab along for the arrivals as its all price zones which are marked on the walls etc so you can see how much before you get in. Sometimes toll prices are extra, sometimes they will say they are included so check.

It was the price getting back to the airport that dramatically changes because they can charge you pretty much what they want - unless you agree a price before you get in. Not sure about 99th street, are you east or west? If west then quicker for Newark, or if east then they have to go across Manhattan to get to Lincoln Tunnel which will rack up the fare.

West 99th street.

Quite a fair bit up - not sure the cheapest way. From Newark to 99th street you could get the train for maybe $15 (not sure how much now) but it takes you to Penn Station so you'd have to leg it from there or jump in cab from there up to 99th st or subway. Depends how many of there are - if 2 or 3 then probably chip in for a cab?

Getting to JFK on way back - once we hired a car/driver through the hotel we were as the receptionist said it was cheaper than a cab. Think it was $30 or so but again prices would have inflated since then.

Maybe someone on here can help as well with more exact prices for recent trips.

So wish it was me planning a trip there again - I love the place :)

Theres two of us. But we come in at near midnight so i'm not sure on the train service. It seems bang in the middle of the bridges/tunnel so... awkward but oh well.

As long as its less than $100 i don't mind haha!

Newark.

Less busy than JFK and also, return bus trip to NYC is $25 and takes about 20-30 mins. No issues, no problems.
