I have a flight from Cairo to JFK with EgyptAir and then a connecting flight from JFK to Austin with Jetblue.
I have around 6 hours wait in JFK, my question is: Can I check-in the baggage 5-6 hours early at Jetblue and leave the airport to visit NYC? or is check-in before a couple of hours of the flight? I can’t leave the airport with the baggage ( 6 large bags) so I was wondering if it’s possible for touring around for a couple of hours.
Any hints are appreciated.
