  • Terminal 6 to TBIT
    May 18, 2014
    Flying Alaska Air (presumably to T6), then transfer to TBIT to BA for London. 1) Do we have to leave security and re-enter? 2) Do we have to pickup checked baggage and move it with us?


    Yes you will have to go through security in the TBIT after your transfer. If you purchased your tickets separately you will have to transfer the bags between terminals yourself.


  • Joing family members between transfer
    May 18, 2014
    HI, My family is arriving from India to T4 (air india) and I will travel with them from NYC to Pittsburgh from t2 (Delta). Can I meet them at T4 and go with them to t2?


    Yes you can. They will be outside security when they exit customs


  • Delta domestic connections within new Terminal 2 - JFK
    May 19, 2014
    Flying in from BUF into Terminal 2 at JFK by a Delta Connection and connecting to ORD on another Delta Connection at Terminal 2 - layover is 41 minutes - is this sufficient? Thanks


    You arrive at & depart from Terminal 2 (T2) which has Gates C60-C70. Plenty of time for transfer.


    Thank you


    Also, Terminal 2 is unfortunately, not new but in fact quite old.


  • From Delta to British Airways in under 60 Min?
    May 20, 2014
    We are set to arrive on Delta at 5:35 Sunday, May 19 and need to catch a 6:40 flight on British Airways. Can we make it?


    Just to clarify, JFK is a connection for us. So we would have gone through security in FLL. Just not sure about the shuttle connection or if we will need to do anything with customs. thanksk


    You will have to take the AirTrain from Terminal 2 to Terminal 7 and go through security. Will you have checked baggage? Did you purchase both tickets on the same reservation? If you have baggage and did not purchase tickets on the same reservation it is very unlikely you will make it to T7 before the bag cutoff. However, you will not have to do anything with immigration or customs.


    Thank you. We were on Jet Blue with almost three hours layover, but they cancelled our flight this morning. We had to rebook on Delta as it was the only one that got us in there with any hope. We will not have any checked bags. It sounds like Security is the biggest variable, right?


    Security shouldn't be too bad. The main risk is if your first flight is delayed. Which is common at JFK in the summer


    Thanks. I did make it, but my companion did not. Security was the problem. I was able to check in via the BA app, he was not. Therefore I was able to bypass the counter and got the short line to security via flying "preferred economy". Regular coach or having to check in at the counter would have been a "no-go".


  • Arv Delta 2255 from Atlanta - lv on Delta 417 for Sydney
    May 18, 2014
    What is the best way from Delta Terminal 5 arrival to International terminal for departure?


    If you are flying Delta to Sydney both of your flights will be in Terminal 5, you do not have to go to the International Terminal.

  • help! will I make it?

    Hi. My work has booked me on may 20th Tuesday at 1030am delta flight from london Heathrow to Toronto but it connects at JFK arriving at I think terminal 4 and departing terminal two to Toronto. The airline is delta all the way through but my connection time is only 1hr35min which I don't think is enough time! Delta shows this connection as doable but is it really?


    As an international arrival at JFK you need to go through passport check, pick up bags & go through customs clearance & re-check-in bags where indicated (however, if you only use carry-on bag, you merely hand over your customs declaration form - saving time). Delta provides its own shuttles between the two terminals, and you won't need to go through security check again. At 10:30am it's non-rush hour & you should have enough time, even with checked bag.


    Actually, you will have to go through security as once you clear Immigration and Customs you will be outside security - I suggest taking the AirTrain/Air Terminals Train from T4 to T2 since you will already be outside security.

    Hi, will arrive at SEA at 1120 hrs by ANA in Terminal S with just handcarry, no check in lugggage. need to connect to southwest airline at concurse B for 1410 hrs flight. Pls give me the direction. Thanks in advance.


    You have plenty of time! You arrive at Satellite South and depart from Central Terminal's Concourse B. On arrival you need to go through passport check, hand in your customs declaration form and proceed to the South Train Loop station serving the Central terminal's B & S Gates.


    However, if you want to take the transfer train without going to the main terminal first, you will have to check-in online and print out your boarding pass for your Southwest flight before you leave Japan.


    Thanks to Samay and Zap. Currently in Narita now. I have done a check in on Southwest mobile apps but have not printed the boarding pass. Can I go straight to concourse b? First time doing southwest


    No, you need to print a boarding pass. Southwest does not have mobile boarding passes. You will have to go to the main terminal check-in to get a paper boarding pass.


  • Baggage
    May 17, 2014
    Hi. I've booked a single ticket flying from Memphis to London, UK via Chicago with United. Should I make my flight, but my baggage does not, how will I get my baggage? Alternatively if I miss my flight, what if my baggage goes ahead to London without me? How do I pick it up? I only have a 1h 2min layover (the airline assured me id be okay) and I need to get from terminal 2 to 1. Will there be staff around to tell me ASAP where to go? Never connected or been to Chicago before and very afraid of missing my flight as the next one to London is the next day and United have told me they "won't necessarily put me up in a hotel" :(


    You arrive at T2, Concourse F. exit the Concourse and look for signs to Terminal 1 at east end. At T1 you head to either Concourse B or C with corresponding gates (your boarding pass & overhead screens will indicate flight & gate numbers. You have plenty of time & your bags will automatically be transferred.


    You should have plenty of time if your first flight is on-time. United flies multiple flights a day on Chicago-London. If you are not already booked on the last one of the day you will be rebooked on a later one if your first flight is late.

    Is it on the same level as all the gates or do I have another level to go to THANKS


  • Gate B22A
    May 16, 2014

    From B22 walk towards B19, pass B30-33 and enter B41-48 (B gates look like 2 arms connected to the chest (chest B gates 30-33).


  • Arriving T4 from Madrid connecting to Seattle
    May 17, 2014
    I am arriving from Madrid on Delta scheduled at 1:37 (Monday) then connecting to SEA on Delta for 3:10 departure I have global traveler card and will check one bag. What is the process and will this be enough time? Any suggestions?


    On arrival at JFK you need to go through passport check, pick up your bag, go through customs clearance & re-check-in your bag where indicated. You arrive at Terminal 4 and most likely depart from there to, in case your departure to Seattle is from Terminal 2, Delta will shuttle you to its gate area. You have plenty of time!


    Both of your flights will be in Terminal 4.

    Will arrive at JFK from CLT (USAirways) 3:30. Connecting with Aer Lingus flight leaving at 5:30 for Dublin. Is that enough time to change terminals and go back through security?


    You will arrive at JFK at Terminal 8; take the 'Airline Terminals Train' (follow signs) to your departing Terminal 5. The train runs counter-clockwise: your next stops will be at Terminals 1, 2, 4 & 5. At T5 you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate. You have enough time.


  • Getting from T2 to T1 on a Saturday
    May 16, 2014
    How long should it take to get from terminal 2 to Terminal 1 and clear security? Do the trains run in both directions or do we have to make the complete circle.


    At JFK, the 'Airline Terminals Train' runs counter-clockwise - making its continuous run between all terminals. T1 is your next stop where you go through security check & on to your connecting gate.
