Is 58 min enough time to get from T8 to T7 on same reservation? Had to be cleared by the airline per Expedia. Plan to take Airtran?
My RDU to JFK flight gets in around 12:00 noon and I am catching a separate JFK to BCN flight that departs around 5:35 PM on American Airlines. I hope this is enough time, especially since I am changing terminals and need to recheck bags. Should I be all right?
Hello I fly man-JFK arriving at 12.55 terminal 4, we then travel to MCO via jet blue terminal 5 at 15.52. Is this window of 3hrs enough time to pass immigration, customs, re-check luggage etc? Thankyou
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hi, I will be arriving at JFK on Emirates at 08:15 (I believe at T4) and I have a connection on Jetblue to Montego Bay at 10:32. I believe this is from T5.

As I will need to go through Immigration and Customs and re-check my luggage, is the connection time sufficient.

Thank you.
If it's one reservation that's barely enough time. If it's two separate reservations I'd say that's probably not enough time.
What's the easiest way to get from Terminal 4 to Terminal 5 baggage claim to meet a friend and my ride..
The AirTrain.
I am arriving JFk on Lufthansa from Frankfurt at 1:30pm and have a separate reservation on Jetblue to Santiago at 2:59pm. Is that enough time to clear immigration (I have global entry) and customs and recheck at Jetblue?
With checked bags, I say that's probably not enough time. With no checked bags it might barely be possible.
Flying in on Delta from Caicos and leaving on Delta on same reservation. 1:45 minute layover is too short for customs and immigration correct?
That's just enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Will 2.5 hrs be enough time to disembark from an AA flight and pick up luggage in terminal 8, then get through security and check in for a Korean Air flight in terminal 1?
I have a knee defect and cannot walk long distances-what assistance is there for me to transfer?
You need to contact your airline to request wheelchair service.
Daughter coming in on Delta flight from Heathrow in mid December on a Sunday. Need to book another flight home to Chicago. Could be Delta but likely another carrier. How much time to budget for arrival, immigration/customs, bag pick up and recheck, transfer terminals?
If it's two separate reservations I'd want 3 hours.
