VS Check-In Time @ JFK

VS Check-In Time @ JFK

  1. Tyler356

    Hi all,

    My wife and I have booked our first int’l business class trip (ever!) and are flying VS (we redeemed SkyMiles). We fly JFK-LHR in a couple weeks and are super excited to experience the Clubhouse at JFK. We’re also kind of hoping to be able to work from the Clubhouse for most of the day and are wondering how many hours before a flight anyone here has been able to check bags.

    I called VS and they said 2.5 to 3 hours before the flight, which really isn’t ideal for us, so I thought I’d ask the experts!

    Alternatively, if we store our bags at the place listed on this [URL=’’]page[/URL], does anyone know if we’ll be able to go through security (sans bags) in the morning, work from the Clubhouse all day, then go back through security to check our bags and come back to the Clubhouse?

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    [USER=639]@Tyler356[/USER] you’ll need a boarding pass for security and lounge access so check to see if VA can issue those electronically through an app or something else. If yes you should be able to do it. Also check the hours of the lounge to make sure it is open when you get there. I’m guessing JFK is pretty busy but better to check.
