Which airport?

Will be taking a RS tour in Spain. Can't get a direct flight and must change planes in JFK or Amsterdam and both have about a four hour layover. Is one airport significantly easier / better for making such a connection? Many thanks. TC

Hi TC,
I'd chose Amsterdam! It's an easy airport to navigate and if by chance there were a delay, I'd rather it be in Europe than the US.

I'd choose Amsterdam too. You'll be in Europe, even if you are still in the airport. And the airport is OK.

Definately Amsterdam. There is a nice observation deck to watch the planes come in and out if you like that sort of thing. It helped me pass the time on a similar layover. Also has lots of shops and is a fairly newer looking airport. Most of JFK is old and dumpy although they do have a newer international terminal. Bottom line is you will be in Europe in case something goes wrong and not in NYC.
