Fare Class is Y - which I suppose could be anytime award - the flight now has a different PNR than the orginal and the locator did not have her advantage number. It's JAL ticket stock thoiugh. We'll see what happens. At this point I am happy she doesn't have to go to LGA

Give her a heads up the airtrain isn't running right now at T1 so she doesnt go in a frustrating circle to the airtrain station and back down: https://www.jfkairport.com/announcem...ion12-closures

At least the bus shuttle goes direct T1<>T8 so it's minimal disruption.

I do not know if it is a doable as your feel. --and don't forget winter weather!
Ive transferred JFK to LGA twice. Took about 90 minutes tops via public transit. Air Train to E Train to Q70-SBS. Would I do it with two big bags? No. Would I do it with a carry on and a backpack? Sure.

Final update - she ended up in a PE seat in row 16. She was able to grab some food in the lounge (she got in with the JAL boarding pass from NRT). Would it be a little nicer in some of the empty seats in the front - sure - but really a PE seat is the same as an F seat on the 737 of the later flight (where she was booked in Y too).

This should be the last update - all worked out
