Our trip once again started off at JFK Airport as we were graciously dropped off by my parents very early in the morning. I was glad to be flying Business Class because the check-in queue for Economy was dreadfully long.
The Avianca check-in agent could only check our bag to Lima, instead of all the way to Cusco, so we’d have to retrieve it for our short overnight in Lima.
The security line was quite long so we decided to bypass the Star Alliance lounge in Terminal 4. Had we had enough time, we would have been granted access to the Swiss Air Lounge. If you find yourself flying Star Alliance and wondering what lounges you have access to, just use the Star Alliance Lounge Finder.
Regardless, we were ecstatic to be leaving this:
