My wife and I flew Jet Blue Airlines from Syracuse to JFK. There we have to switch to a
the international terminal to take Jet Blue to Barbados.
Nothing like a little Irish whiskey for breakfast while waiting for your flight.
Here's our aircraft waiting at the Gate on the JFK tarmack.
It was a typical Caribbean airport scene: many planes landing at the same
time, immigration was busy, the baggage handlers are in a big hurry to
get to the next passenger. This can work in your favor as the customs people
tend to feel sorry for the baggage handlers so they don't ask a lot of questions
about your bags (assuming your bags look "normal").
