  • Transfer at JFK from T4 to T5 in 1 hr 50 min
    Sep 25, 2016
    My parents are coming from ICN on OZ222 (arriving 11:30 AM) and will be transferring to JetBlue 2320 (departing 1:18 PM), with checked baggages. They need to clear customs and border control. I booked the jetblue flight without thinking too much, but I just realized that it might not be enough time to do so. Can someone give me an opinion?


    also, how about the other way? JFK to ICN will depart at 13:25. I would like to book a flight arriving JFK at 11:17 AM. Would it be okay?


    Is it two separate reservations or one reservation? If it's two separate reservations it's definitely not enough time.

    Flying into JFK T5 from LAX, connecting to Edinburgh Uk in T5. Both Delta. No baggage. 45mins. Is this doable?


    Delta does not use T5 at JFK. Both flights will be in T4. Yes, that is enough time if the flight from LAX is on-time.


  • Terminal 1 to Terminal 4
    Sep 24, 2016
    Is 1 hour 9 minutes enough time to make a connection fro T1 to T4? We will be in economy (~ row 40).


    No, that is totally not enough time. Where are you flying from and to and on what airlines?


    SFO to Venice on Delta


    Then you will not arrive in Terminal 1. You depart from Terminal 1 from SFO. In JFK you will arrive and depart from Terminal 4. You do have enough time.


  • 45 minutes to connect
    Sep 24, 2016
    Hi my flight is ex LAS to LHR via JFK and shows 45 mins connection time, i land and depart from T8 . Any idea if this will work . Many thanks


    Yes, that is possible as long as the first flight is on-time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Can I make it in four hours
    Sep 24, 2016
    I am flying with my three toddlers I am moving so I have lots of goods will It be possible to carry all these goods around 160kg on trolley and changing terminal, arriving at jfk terminal 8 then departing to Orlando through terminal 5, is there any possibility to higher someone that can carry all goods with me


    No, there is nobody to hire. You can rent a cart and bring it on the airtrain between terminals.


  • Changing at JFK terminal 8 - 1 hrs 15 min
    Sep 24, 2016
    Hi Coming from Europe and changing at T8. Both AA flights and flying in Business. Can I make it? Thank you so much for the reply


    And no luggage


    With no checked bags and traveling in Business you have a chance, but it still won't be easy.


  • South African Airways to American Airlines in 1h35 min
    Sep 23, 2016
    I am flying in on SAA and obviously have to go through customs ect. Looking to fly out on AA to Miami at 8:15 leaving 1h35 minutes. Is this enough time? Regards


    On two separate reservations with checked bags, no, that's not enough time.


  • aa to Qatar airways
    Sep 23, 2016
    Hi, I'm trying to book a flight on Qatar airways. Domestic arrival in JFK via AA and then connect to Qatar airways. I see they have flights with a 41mins layover in JFK, is this enough time for the connection? I see that Qatar airways operates from Terminal 7/8, not sure which is which. Thank you


    The Terminal depends on which flight you are on, the morning flight uses Terminal 7, the evening flight uses Terminal 8. If you're on the evening flight that's doable but risky. If you're on the morning flight, that's impossible.


  • enough time to between flights
    Sep 22, 2016
    Hi, I am flying in next May to JFK Airport on a Qantas flight from Melbourne, Australia (via LAX) arriving at 4:40pm into I believe terminal 7. I have decided that when I arrive at JFK to get a flight to Montreal for a few days before returning back to New York for the rest of my trip with Delta Airlines, they have one at 8:05pm (I already purchased a few months ago my ticket from Melbourne to JFK and back). I will have cleared customs and immigration in LAX (as that's the first point of entry into USA), so only have to get my luggage, changed terminal, check in etc. Is there enough time when I land to catch the Delta flight? I prefer not to have to stay in manhattan or at an airport hotel for the night.


    Yes, that should be possible if the flight from LAX is on-time.


  • Terminal 5 to Terminal 4
    Sep 22, 2016
    I am arriving from Ireland at terminal 5 at 1:20 and depart from terminal 4 at 3pm with one person and one bag to check. Is this possible?


    Since you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Ireland, that should be just enough time for your connection.


  • 1 hour transit terminal 4
    Sep 21, 2016
    Hey everybody, I'm travelling from San Francisco to Venice through JFK , I got 1h5min transit time arriving and departing from the same terminal , T4. I got no luggage, just a small trolley Is it feasible? thank you


    Yes, that is possible. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Thank you ZAP, but not sure: there should be a passport control since I'm European


    There is no US Immigration or Customs when leaving the US. All they do is enter your passport number when you check in and you show it to the gate agent when you board the plane.


    wonderful! thank you so much ZAP


  • Time to clear customs in term 1 and make connecting flight in term 4
    Sep 21, 2016
    I will be arriving on Sunday, Nov, 13, on Aeroflot 100, scheduled for 12:25 at (I believe) Terminal 1 How much time should I leave to clear customs and get to a Delta flight from Terminal 4?


    If you're purchasing two separate reservations i'd leave at least 3 hours.


    thanks so much for your hlep.


  • 1 hr 20 min Delta Connection Arriving from VCE
    Sep 21, 2016
    Arriving into terminal 4 on Delta from Venice. Sitting in Econ Comfort so not the back of the plane however, we depart from Terminal 2 on Delta...is 1 hr 20 mins enough time to clear customs and get to terminal 2?


    That will be very very difficult. It's shorter than the recommended International to Domestic connection time at JFK.


  • Is 2:00 hours enough
    Sep 20, 2016
    I will come in to Terminal 1 on Aeroflot and will need to leave from Terminal 8 on American Airlines. Is 2:00 hours enough time to clear customs and immigration?


    With checked bags on two separate reservations, no, I don't think that's enough time. I'd want 3 hours.


  • Connection time at Terminal 5 between international and domestic fligh
    Sep 20, 2016
    I am arriving JFK Terminal 5 on TAP airlines from Portugal, and have a 2 hour window to catch a Jet Blue flight also from Terminal 5. Is two hours enough?


    If both flights are on the same reservation that should be enough time. If it's two separate reservations and you have checked bags that will be difficult.
