I'm not sure how rechecking a bag on a different airline works at JFK. I will be arriving on AA from Madrid at 12:55pm, and trying to make a connection on Delta to Pittsburgh at 3:20pm. Will it be possible to get through customs and check the bag with Delta, or is there not enough time to check in for the second flight and get back through security?
It will be hard but it's not impossible. You will have to take your bag with you to Terminal 4 on the AirTrain to re-check it with Delta.
Hi,

I'm flying from CLT to JFK via American Airlines and is said to arrive at 10:15pm at terminal 8. Then I'll have to catch a China Airlines flight at 1:35am at terminal 4, will I have enough time to pick up my checked luggage, head to terminal 4, re-check baggage, go through security check, and eventually catching my 1:35am flight? Is JFK busy at that time of the day?

Thank you so much for your help.
Yes, that should be enough time. No, JFK is not busy late in the evening.
Hello,
Will two hours be enough time to get between a domestic Delta flight from Terminal 2 (9am arrival) to an international JetBlue flight from Terminal 5 (11am departure)? And would a checked bag make a big difference (we'd like one but can eliminate if necessary)? Also, the flights will be on separate tickets.

Thank you!
Adam
With no checked bags you have a chance. In my opinion it's far too risky with checked bags.
Thanks. You da mvp
My flight times have changed and it will now leave only 1 hour between flights. I am flying into JFK from Philadelphia on Delta and connecting on a Delta flight to Rome. How far are the gates and is this enough time?
Yes, that should be enough time. Both flights are in Terminal 4.
Hello, I have a flight booked from LHR-JFK on AA, How much time should I allow to get to my next connecting domestic flight which is also on AA? Thank you!
At least 2 hours.
Thank you!
I will be landing in terminal 4 at 3pm today and have an intl flight at 420 in terminal 1. can i make it? how do i get from t4 to t1
I am arriving on Norwegian at 8:05 PM at Terminal 1. I will have checked bags. I would like to make a JetBlue flight at 10:19 PM out of Terminal 5. Do I have a ghost of a chance of making it? Thanks.
Yeah, I'd say you have a chance, but that's about it.
flying from denver to jfk jet blue connection flight emarat there any possibility to walk to terminal 5 or any map to get airtrain ?thank you
You have to take the AirTrain.
Hi, I am arriving JetBlue T5 at 1128pm and have a flight Cathay that leaves at 0135Am in T8. That's 2 hr connection in middle of the night. Will I make it with checked bags?
If the bags are checked through you should be OK. If you claim and re-check your bags it might be a little tight.
I am flying from Ireland on a working j1 visa to JFK and getting a connecting flight to Boston. I have an hour between my flight arriving and leaving to boston. I will need to get to T4 from T2. Will i have enough time to do this and will i have to go through customs and security. I am flying with Delta.
You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Ireland. All you have to do in JFK is take the shuttle bus from T4 to T2, all inside security.
