  • YYZ to JFK to SNN
    May 24, 2016
    Hi there. We are US citizens flying from YYZ in Toronto, connecting in JFK for our flight to SNN in Ireland. All flights are Delta operated. Anything we should be wary of? Layover in JFK is approximately 3 hours. Flights are later in the evening on a Wednesday. Any and all help is greatly appreciated!


  • Connecting flight time
    May 24, 2016
    We are arriving into JFK from Richmond VA on Delta then leaving for South Africa on South African Air. Is 2 to 2 and a half hours enough time to make our connection?


    That would be barely enough time if everything went perfectly.


  • Terminal 8 to Terminal 1 in 2.5 hours?
    May 24, 2016
    Is transferring from terminal 8 to terminal 1 in 2.5 hours possible? Anything I should know?


    Where are you flying into Terminal 8 from? Where are you flying to? Are your tickets on one reservation or two separate ones? I can't answer your question without that information.


    Sorry for not a lot of information. I'll be flying into terminal 8 from Boston via AA and flying to Tokyo from terminal 1 via JAL. The tickets are on one reservation.


    Then yes, that is possible. All you have to do is take the AirTrain to Terminal 1 and go through security.


    Awesome, thanks so much!


  • Terminal change in 60 minutes?
    May 24, 2016
    I have PreCheck. I would not check any bags. With my carry-on and some hustle, do you think I could connect from Terminal 8 (AA) to Terminal 4 to make my connecting flight in 60 minutes on a Sunday evening?


    It's not impossible, but I personally wouldn't try it.


  • international connection
    May 24, 2016
    i'm a us citizen returing from scotland on delta. 3:55 pm arrival on delta. 7:00 connection on American. what's your feeling on that amount of time to clear customs and change terminals?


    That should be enough time.


  • From Terminal 4 to Termina 1 in 1h15minutes
    May 24, 2016
    I am arriving at JFK with a Delta domestic flight at 6:05pm a friday afternoon, and I am supposed to leave to CDG at 6:20pm with an AF flight leaving from Terminal 1. Both flights are under the same ticket number. Is the connection time (75 minutes) sufficient, and what is the best way to connect (in particular, can I stay behind security checks)? Thanks.


    You cannot get to Terminal 1 inside security - you have to take the AirTrain to T1 and go through security. This is a difficult connection, but if you miss it, Air France does have a later flight to Paris.


    OK thanks ZAP, let's try this then.


  • Terminal 2 to Terminal 1
    May 24, 2016
    I have a Turkish airline flight arriving JFK at 10:45 am, and a domestic Delta flight leaving at 1:39pm. I believe Turkish Airlines arrives in Terminal 2, whereas Delta departs at Terminal 1, plz check for me to re-confirm. I booked both flights separately, which means I need to go through immigration and collect my baggage. How do I go from Terminal 2 to Terminal 1? And also do you think this is enough time for me to make my Delta flight?


    You have the terminals backwards. You will arrive in Terminal 1 and depart from Terminal 2 or 4. They are connected outside security by the AirTrain.


  • JFK to Athens
    May 23, 2016
    We are arrivng to JFK from MSP (3769)at 4:49pm tomorrow and have a flight on the same delta reservation that leaves at 5:41pm for Athens (413). Will we need to go through security etc again/ will that be enough time?


    No, you do not have to go through security. You just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if the flight from MSP is on-time.


  • Connection T4 to T%
    May 23, 2016
    I'll land from Johannesburg flying South African Airways at 06:40am at T4 and I will depart to SFO with JetBlue at 09:00am from T5. Is there enough time to the connection?


    It's a difficult connection, but not impossible.


  • how long will it take? which terminals?
    May 23, 2016
    Hi, going to land 6:45 on a Thursday evening DL 40141 from PIT. then need to get bags and go to another terminal and re-check the bags and catch a flight to Oslo Gardermoen on Norwegian air flight DY7002. Can you please tell me which terminal I will land in from Pittsburg and which terminal I will take off from to Norway and how to get between the terminal and how long it takes. THANKIS


    You will arrive in Terminal 4 and depart from Terminal 1. I recommend at LEAST 3 hours between flights as you will have to transfer your bags yourself and go through security in T1.


  • Coming in on Jetblue leaving on Delta
    May 23, 2016
    I am flying in on Jetblue from Las Vegas arriving at 6:48pm and trying to leave on a Delta flight at 7:27. Which termianls would I need to transfer from and to? Will that be enough time so long as I'm checked in? I don't check bags, only carry-on.


    You will arrive in Terminal 5 and depart from Terminal 2 or 4. This is not a possible connection.


  • Emirates International to AA Domestic, 3h10min
    May 23, 2016
    I have a 850am emirates arrival with a AA connection at 12noon (on a separate reservation). I thought 3 hours was enough (because I was told so 6 months ago). now with the TSA delays, I'm not sure. What do you think?


    I think it will be barely enough.


  • JetBlue to Austrian Air
    May 23, 2016
    my daughter is landing at terminal 5 (JetBlue) and then transferring to terminal 1(Austrian Air) for her flight to Tel Aviv. 2 questions 1. What's the best way to transfer between terminals? 2. Can she check her bag all the way through? 3. Will she need to go through seep unity again in terminal 1? Thanks in advance for the hel!


    The only way between terminals is the AirTrain. If she purchased all her tickets on the same reservation then her bags will be checked through. If she purchased two separate reservations then she will need to claim her bags from JetBlue and re-check them with Austrian. Yes, she will have to go through security again in Terminal 1.


    Thank you!


  • Going from Jet Blue domestic to Delta International
    May 23, 2016
    I guess, I will have to get my checked bags from Jet blue and then go to Delta international to fly to EU. I have 5 hours to do that. what is the easiest way to do that. I assume I have to go through TSA and customs too. Any secrets or info for me?


    You should be able to check your bag all the way through with JetBlue at the place of departure. If you flying international you also don't have to pay for your bag as you would flying domestically.


    Actually Jet blue told me that they will not transfer bags over to another airline when the reservation are made separately.


    Yes, Maria is incorrect - Jetblue and Delta do not have an interline agreement. You do not have to go through Customs. There is no US Customs when exiting the US. You will arrive in T5, claim your bags, take the AirTrain to T4, re-check your bags with Delta, and go through security. You have enough time.
