JFK to midtown - Subway or Airporter or ??

Early AM weekday arrival at JFK - what is the best way to 8th Ave and W. 44th for a solo traveler? Not really concerned w/ cost but don't necessarily want to spend a fortune, and won't have a time crunch.

Thanks

I'm the queen of packing light - always carry on only

Probably a 19 in rollaboard and large-ish handbag.

Take the Airporter. It leaves you right at Port Authority on 42nd At and 8th Ave.

I would not want to take the subway with luggage at rush hour. and since the Airporter bus is cheap and stops right near your hotel it makes a lot of sense.
