This also pops up in September for ORD-HND + HND-SYD in a similar 4.5 CPM range.

I didn't realize how tight that connection was until I double checked the time of day. There is no way I would make it. I did find it without the NYC leg for $1,001. Seems like a better option.

During rush hour too. If you're lucky enough to make it, you get to spend endless hours in the 16.5 inch ANA torture chair

Q70 to Jackson Heights, take E train to Jamaica, take AirTrain to JFK, I think you can make it within 90 minutes, even during rush hour. And it only costs you $7.75.

however if you have a lot of luggages then forget about it.

Who's going to do an MR with lots of luggage? And who flies with checked luggage, period

Seriously though, your itin is perfect... and I'd still rather take a car. Just eat the $30, it'll be faster. GCP to LIE should be quick and easy, the Van Wyck is where your problems start. Still, I'd bet this would take less than 90 minutes in a car.
