  • From Amsterdam Terminal 4 time to Terminal 5 Jet Blue
    Oct 1, 2016

    My friend's flight was delayed 3 hours and now only has 1 hour to get through border control, customs, and collect baggage and check in on a Jet Blue flight that is a separate ticket. How can this be done the quickest way? My friend is a US citizen but does not have global entry/fast pass.

     

    He or she will get stuck in New York unless the JetBlue flight is also delayed. This is the risk you take when you purchase two separate reservations. Maybe they will let him or her standby or change to a later flight (if there is one).

    Hi, I'm arriving in Terminal 1 with AF at 1:40pm on Nov 7th and have a connecting to ORD with Delta at 4:15pm. Is that enough time to clear customs and recheck my bag? Thanks

     

    Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

    Thanks a million!

     

  • JFK T7 to T8 Connection Time from LHR to MCO

    2 adults, 2 kids under 10 arriving T7 from LHR on BA at 12.10pm on a Saturday afternoon, departing T8 to MCO with AA (codeshare) same ticket at 14.59. Do we need to clear immigration, baggage reclaim etc & check in all over again, and is the connection time of 2hrs 50 mins enough? Many thanks

     

    In JFK you will arrive in T7, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then take the AirTrain to T8 and go through security. You should have enough time.

    my family are coming from MCO orlando to JFK via delta, then proceed to Asiana airlines for Incheon. Do they need to go out and check in again? Arrival at JFK is at 10:05 Am, Asiana departs 1:25 Pm. will the time be enough for the transfer? thanks

     

    Are both tickets on the same reservation or two separate reservations? Even if it's two separate reservations that should be enough time.

    We arrive at 8:30Am from TPA on Delta. Our next flight leaves on Emirates to Dubai at 9:40 Am. We have carry on bags- can we make it?

     

    With carry-ons only that is possible if you are able to check in online for your Emirates flight. If you arrive in Terminal 2 you can take a shuttle to Terminal 4 inside security. Personally, I wouldn't try this though.

    Hi, I'm arriving on an international flight at terminal 4 at 6h05am and have a flight at 8h05am on terminal 2. Can I make it in time? I need to get my bags and check in again.

     

    That is just barely enough time if everything goes perfectly and both tickets are on the same reservation.

    Hi- travelling (and booked thru Delta) from BOS connecting thru JFK to MEX, is 2 hours 36 minutes enough time to connect at JFK for the flight to MEX?

     

    Yes, all you have to do in JFK is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Note that if you arrive in Terminal 2, you can take a shuttle to Terminal 4 inside security. This assumes that your flight to MEX is actually operated by Delta. If it's operated by Aeromexico you will have to take the AirTrain to Terminal 1 and go through security, but you still have enough time.

    I am arriving on avianca (terminal 4) at 9PM and departing on american airlines (terminal 8) at 9:42 PM. Is this enough time?

     

    ^^I will have a carry-on bag only. Thanks!

     

    You have zero chance of making that. Plan on spending the night in New York.

    Hi! I am flying IND via JFK to DXB. My flight to JFK arrives at 14:49 at Terminal 8. My flight to DXB departs at 16:30 from Terminal 4. I will not have checked bags. Is this enough time to connect?

     

    With no checked bags it is possible but it leaves no time to spare. You'll have to take the AirTrain to Terminal 4, get your Emirates boarding pass if you don't already have it and go through security.

    I will take JetBlue from FT Lauderdale to JFK arriving at 2305h and taking CX flight to HKG at 0130h, will there be enough time? They are issued in 1 ticekt

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You just have to take the AirTrain from T5 to T7, get your Cathay boarding pass if you don't already have it, and go through security. If the times you posted are right you have 2 hr 25 mins.

     

    Thank you ZAP, great help! One more question, do I need to re-check-in my luggage?

    Hi! I am flying from LAX via JFK to LHR. All booked via AA/ codeshare BA. I have 50 minutes connecting time. Arriving terminal 8, Gate 36, departing from terminal 8, gate 40. Any chance to make it in 50 minutes?

     

    Yes, that is definitely possible. All you have to do is walk from the first gate to the second gate and board your flight.

    I'm flying from Atlanta and making a transit at JFK and continue to Venice, Italy. Do I have reclaim my checked luggage at JFK and recheck them again?

     

    If both flights are on Delta, no you do not. There is no US Customs when leaving the US.

    I am from Hong Kong (HKG), on CX840; transit to DCA on CX7721. I have 2hr 40mins transit time. Do I have to take my language and go through the security during transit? Your help is very much appreciated.

     

    Yes, you will arrive in Terminal 7, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then take the AirTrain to Terminal 8 and go through security. You have enough time.

     

    Thank you very much!

    Hi, I will be arriving on a Delta flight from LAX and connecting to a Virgin Atlantic flight to the UK with a 2hr 28 min layover. Do I have to claim my baggage and recheck it, and do I have enough time? Thank you!

     

    Also, do I have to go through security again if my LA flight comes in to Terminal 2? Thanks!

     

    All LA flights arrive in Terminal 4. If both flights are on the same reservation you don't have to do anything with your bags - just walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    Thank you!
