My Dublin flight leaves from Newark at 7 p.m. on Sat. May 30th. I waited too long for a good deal from DFW to EWR and the non-stop prices went up and are staying, so I will probably go standby on AA to get to EWR. If necessary, I'll go to JFK or LGA...

How do I get from either airport to EWR?
How much should I expect to pay?
How long will the travel time between the two airports be?

Thanks,

Well, don't take a taxi... that would defeat the point of going on standby...

I'm not sure how much airport transfers are. I'd guess $15/$20 on a shuttle of some sort.

First, allow around 2 hours of travel.

Second, depends how much luggage / money you have.

If you are low on luggage & money try to take the AirTrain/LIRR to Penn Station then pickup the NJ Transit train out to EWR.

Otherwise I'd use a private service like http://www.goairporter.com/ - should run you a lot more but it's a hell of a lot more convinient and easy. I believe they tell you how much time it will take but I'd tack on another 60-90 mintues.

Thanks for the advice. I actually made it onto the first EWR flight of the day.

Newark is the most expensive airport I've been to. The trinkets were about 4x s more expensive than the lunch at Caliente's, and I only bought 5 small items...yikes! If you just want postcards, ask each vendor if the cards aren't visible. Don't believe any vendor that says EWR doesn't sell them. They are only trying to rip you off. The vendors that do carry postcards have slightly better prices on their stuff than those who don't sell them. It's an airport...what more can be said?? smile.gif

By the way, Caliente's Mexican restaurant has really good food, but stick to the appetizers. I had fajita nachos and tea. With tip, it was a little over $12 and there was plenty of food to satisfy a hungry traveller.

It sure is. Don't buy any trinkets in any airport, these are for people who forgot and have to buy a present / trinket.
