Help-Penn Station to JFK/Check in time

Jump to last reply

Hey, please help. I will probably post this in the U.S. forum too just in case this is the wrong spot for this.

My husband and I have a 5:30 PM flight with Aer Ligus out of JFK airport later this month. We are coming from Virginia on the Amtrack and will arrive at 2:00 am at Penn Station.

I have flown international at JFK many times and think that of we arrive around 1:30-2 we have plenty of time to check luggage. I planned to sit in the Amtrack lounge at Penn for about 4-5 hours and then use the Amtrack luggage storage facility to hold our luggage so we could have a breakfast and run an errand in Herald Sqaure. If we make it back to Penn Station by 12:30 does that leave us enough time to make the trip to JFK on either the E train or the LIRR?
Also we will leave VA on Sunday at 5:30 pm, if we arrive at the airport around 1:30-2 will we have enough time to avail ourselves of the T-5 Lounge and have a quick shower? I realize it's around $25-$30 which is worth it to me to not have to arrive in Europe on Tuesday covered in Sunday's grime.
I'm am incredibly patient travler who has spent many a long wait/layover/night in airports and train stations but if you all think that it makes more sense to arrive on Saturday to New York and spend one night in a hotel I would consider it. If we do book a hotel should we book one close to the airport and take the train into Herald Sqaure for the Sunday morning errand?

Thanks for any and all info!
