  • Connecting Terminal 1 to 5, 8:30pm on a Friday
    Jan 28, 2015

    My companion and I are U.S. citizens. We'll be arriving at JFK (Terminal 1) on Norwegian Air on Friday, February 20 and need to depart on JetBlue from Terminal 5. Obviously, we need time for Immigration, Customs, the Airtrain to Terminal 5, and Terminal 5 security (we do have JetBlue's Even More Speed, and we'll have checked in online and printed our JetBlue boarding passes already). We are traveling carryon only, so we don't have to wait for bags. Is 2 hours 45 minutes (could be more like 2 hours and 15 minutes, as the Norwegian flight is typically 20-30 minutes late) enough tp make the connection, or are we cutting it too close for comfort? When I check the Immigration website wait times, Friday evenings at Terminal 1 seem to average about 30 minutes for wait time, although the averages are somewhat skewed by the handful of people (presumably non-citizens) who have extremely long waits... Your thoughts?

    Hi, I am flying to JFK from New Delhi, India at 7:35 AM in Terminal 4. I then have a separately booked flight from JFK Terminal 1 to Toronto at 10:35 AM. Are 3 hours enough to go through immigration at T4 and then go to T1 for my 10:35 flight?

  • Terminal 5 to TBIT alone with toddler
    Jan 28, 2015

    Hi all, I will be traveling with my 20 months old daughter next month, ALONE! From Minneapolis to Taipei via Los Angeles. A total of 24 hours trip, argh! I've been doing a lot of research on how to make this trip as smooth as possible. One of my fear is how to navigate through the LAX airport. We are on Delta flight, MSP to LAX, arriving into Terminal 5 at 11:30 am. Then we have to proceed to TBIT to catch China airline flight departing at 2:30 pm. One thing to point out is, I bought these 2 tickets separately. Since Delta and China Airline are both Sky team members. I am praying they will check my luggage all the way to Taipei. I talked to agents from both airlines, they said technically it's doable, but depends on airport ticketing agent's mood of the day, hmm? Assuming I have to re-check my luggage, that will leave me with one luggage, one carry-on backpack, one stroller and one toddler. Here is what I image the process would be. Arrive into Terminal 5. Find a luggage cart, put stroller and toddler on the cart, proceed to collect my luggage, push them out of terminal 5, then we should be on a big concrete walkway that connects the terminals. Should I then take the shuttle or walk? Once arrive TBIT, we will first check in with China Airline ticketing counter, which I think it's on the same level as the concrete walkway and shuttle. Then, we will proceed to go through international departure security check. Did I miss anything? Also, one of the thing I remember about LAX airport is stairs, many up and down to go to different places. Base on my description, can anyone foresee any obstacles ahead of me? Thank you all in advance, any suggestion will be much appreciated!

     

    Yes, you have the process correct. The only stairs you will have to go down are from the arrival level in T5 to the lower level where you will collect your baggage (and I'm fairly sure there is an elevator somewhere if you look for it).

     

    Thank you for your reply! Do you happen to know if the luggage cart has "toddler seat" on it? Like the shopping cart at the grocery store.

    We arrive at 145pm on AA from Italy and continue on AA to LAX at 3:00pm. What is the procedure and is that enough time?

     

    That's not really enough time. It's 15 minutes shorter than the minimum connecting time. You arrive in T8, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, go through security and to your departure gate.

    Hello, I'm arriving Dules International at 4 pm on 30 th January from Dallas ( flight SK8789) and need to change to 5.15 pm flight to Copenhagen (SK 752). Is this going to be enough time for non US citizen?

     

    Yes, all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Your citizenship doesn't matter. All gates are connected inside security. Your first flight will be operated by United/United Express.

    Hello! On February third I will be traveling from cancun and arriving in DFW at 2:25pm, and then I have to catch my connection to SFO at 4:00pm. Will that be a reasonable time considering that I'm a US citizen and my boyfriend is an ESTA passport holder (british). We will also check one bag each. Thank you for your time!

     

    That should be enough time. A wednesday in the winter should be pretty quiet at immigration.

     

  • Connecting between Terminal 4 and 5

    Hi, My wife is traveling from India to San Jose. and she has a connecting flight in JFK. She will be reaching at Terminal 4 and have to go to Terminal 5 to board the next flight. Let me know the procedure for the same. Thanks.

     

    She will arrive in Terminal 4, go through US Immigration, claim her bags, go through US Customs, then if she purchased her tickets together and her bags are tagged through to San Jose, she can re-check her bags at the transfer desk, otherwise she will have to take her bags with her. In T5 she will check her bag if she hasn't already, get her JetBlue boarding pass if she doesn't already have it, go through security and to her departure gate.

     

    She has booked her ticket together. So i assume she can checkin her bag in T4 itself. And will she have to come out of the airport for moving from T4 to T5, as am worried about the climate. If its within the airport then normal temperature would be maintained isn't it.

     

    The connections to the airtrain are covered. New York is not so cold that it will give her frostbite in a few minutes.

    I am booking return flights from Orlando back to the UK, with a short connection in Atlanta (Delta flight). However I only have 56 minutes between flights. Do I have to recheck baggage and go through customs and immigration? How long does this take? The flight from Atlanta to the UK (Manchester) is Virgin Atlantic.

     

    All you have to do in Atlanta on your way back to the UK is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. 56 mins is enough time.

    I have a 42 minute stop over in SLC in February; flying in on Delta Air from Albuquerque, and out again to Canada on another Delta flight. Will this be enough time to make my connecting flight? mid afternoon

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. All Delta gates at SLC are connected inside security.

    Arriving on a Saturday afternoon from london on a non us passport with 1hr 27 mins connection time for flight to FT Myers. Is this enough time to clear immigration, customs etc and make connecting flight?

     

    That should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. Although Saturday afternoons in the springtime can be busy as that is when many flights from the Caribbean arrive and have to go through immigration as well.

    I am flying from birmingham uk to Amsterdam for connecting flight to bali. I have 1hr 5 - will that be enought time? do I need to go through additional security?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will have to go through security at your gate but you will not have to go through passport control as you will not be entering the Schengen Area.
