Hi, We're flying from Hawaii to LAX to JFK back home to LHR.
The connection in JFK is only 45mins long. Do we have to pick up bags and go through customs etc? if not the arrival terminal and departure terminal are the same so we should have a tight stop?
There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. It is possible if the flight from LAX is on-time.
I arrive in JFY T4 at 14.03 and need to get a second flight from T1 (Aeroflot) at 15.25. I only have hand luggage. Will that be enough time to get across terminals and re do security at T1?
Is Uber available at JFK on Christmas Day and what is cost to go to midtown Manhattan?
Hi,

I am coming from an airport hotel and need to figure out which shuttle to catch. What time should I arrive at terminal one tomorrow?
I would plan to arrive there by at least 6:30 AM.
Hi I will be traveling this saturday, and I will need to collect my luggage
at terminal 4, and check it for the next flight at terminal 7, how do I go from one terminal to the other one??

Thanks
The AirTrain connects the terminals outside security.
There seem to be more than one train route at JFK。 Which airtrain goes from Terminal 4 to Terminal 2?
the sign for that train says "All Terminals" and it runs just in a circle around the terminals in reverse number order. ie 8-7-5-4-2-1-8 The other train that runs through the terminals in numerical order, then leaves the terminals to go to the Subway and LIRR train stations after getting to Terminal 8.
Do you know if the federal circle shuttle service to cargo center the hours it runs on weekends
We are arriving on LOT polish airlines in business class at 8.30 at night, Can anyone advise how long to process through immigration and best way to reach times square accommodation late at night for 2 pax
You should be out of customs by 9:30 PM. I recommend taking the AirTrain to the LIRR to Penn Station. LIRR Trains run until 11:50 PM from Jamaica station.
We'll be arriving at LGA at 6PM. Our flight to LHR leaves from JFK at 9:20PM (assuming the gate will close at 9PM).
Is there enough time to get from LGA to JFK in order to check-in bags, clear security and run to the gate in time?
Yes, that should be enough time. The taxi from LGA to JFK should take about 45 minutes, so assuming you have your bags at 6:30 that puts you at JFK at 7:15, still over 2 hours before your flight.
I have a flight arriving into JFK terminal 1 from Oslo on Sunday the 21st at 8:30pm and a bus departing from the Port Authority bus terminal at 10:15pm. Will I have time to pick up my bag and get through customs and get to the bus terminal by 10pm if I take a taxi or bus? Thanks for the advice.
