For the life of me I could not come up with a single itinerary that will fly Miami to JFK then LaGuardia to Zurich. So if this is the case there are 2 different itineraries in play then you will need to collect your luggage and re-check it at the next airport to your final destination, which has been discussed in many forms on this site already: ...

When you fly from the US to Europe, the bag could be checked through to its final destination except if you have an airport change e.g. from LGA to JFK or EWR. If you have an airport change, then the baggage label / ticket is not for the final destination. It is generally not worth doing an airport change. First you have to pick your luggage up and then you ...

Karlson's answer certainly wins out in terms of money... but for comfort and speed, with four people, each carrying luggage, I'd say a Taxi will probably win out handily for comfort and speed. Going from LGA to Midtown Manhattan should cost about 30-40 bucks (total), including tip, depending on traffic, and the trip should take about 45 minutes. Arriving at ...

10:27am to 11:54am is insanely tight. The domestic to international MCT at JFK is 1:15 so I think the booking is possible but JFK is notorious for issuing impossible MCTs (at one point United was selling a ticket with a transfer time of 30 minutes to a different terminal!). So you are a full 12 minutes above the official unrealistic MCT. Nope. You land at ...

Given LaGuardia's location you will have to use Ground Transportation irrespective of where you're coming from at some point of your journey. The simplest way to get from LaGuardia to Penn Station would be to use the NYC Airporter or a cab. Price will vary but would be as close to a door-to-door as you can get. Otherwise if you feel like using public ...

Your best option if you decide to take public transportation you should take M60-SBS directly into Manhattan or you could stop at Astoria Blvd, and change for N, Q subway trains, which will take about 10-15 minute ride to Manhattan's West Side conditions permitting. The bus has low ramps for easier access with luggage. You can take Q70 bus to the F Train ...

Yes you will need to collect your bag on arrival at JFK because you will need to transport it to LGA The best mode of transport is probably to take a cab. But that depends on your definition of "best".

It sounds like you are booking two separate flights - one to JFK; and then another separate trip outbound from LGA. These are unrelated; which means that your luggage won't be checked through, and you'll have to check in at LGA to receive your boarding pass for the second flight. So to answer your question regarding the delay - it is solely your ...

You will need a visa for the US. Transit as a concept does not exist in US Airports, and as a result, everyone either needs US Citizenship, an ESTA (Visa Waiver) if part of the list of countries eligible for the Visa Waiver Program in the Unites States. Seeing as you're from Lagos (Nigerian citizen I assume?), you aren't eligible for the VWP, and as such ...
