Indeed I wouldn't bother taking the bus for this - the frustration of waiting for it and not knowing how long it'll be (the electronic screens are essentially meaningless) is not worth it. I'd just...

I think average stage length is a big factor here too. So EK's will be much longer than the European airlines, but actually I would guess that LH's average stage length is shorter than BA's too,...

Indeed the vast majority of AA flights to JFK are domestic or pre-cleared, so I don't see why EI being pre-cleared would make it less likely to co-locate. If anything it makes even more sense for EI,...
