    I am flying with Delta from Edinburgh to JFK arriving at 1.30 (Terminal 4) and have a two hour layover before my next delta flight to Miami 3.30 (terminal 2) is that adequate or not?


  • Terminal 2 to Terminal 1
    Dec 6, 2016
    Hello, we are coming on Delta into Terminal 2, then fluign out by Aeroflot Terminal 1. Do we need to go through security between the terminals? I remember they were somewhat connected and there was no need to use the airtrain, but not sure about the security. We have 1h 40 min between flights. Is it enough time? Thx!


    Yes, you will have to go through security again. T1 is not connected to any other terminals inside security.

    We are landing JFK from Barcelona on Air Portugal at 8:30pm (just go notice that the landing time changed from 7:30pm). Any way we can make a Jet Blue flight leaving at 9:25pm with no checked bags? Trying not to say overnight. Thanks!


    No, that will be impossible. You'll probably have to spend the night.


  • Transfer time International-Domestic (DELTA)?
    Dec 6, 2016
    I am wondering if 1 hour 35 minutes is enough transfer time for an international flight to a domestic flight all on Delta. I am a non-US passport holder, eligible to use automated CBP machines.


    Where are you flying into JFK from? It should be barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.


  • Arriving from Europe, connecting in US- different airlines

    I am hoping to book a flight that is $120 cheaper, but also not willing to risk missing the flight. I will be arriving from Paris at 4:05, I would like to book a flight that leaves for Indianapolis at 5:30 all on 1/22. I realize that I would need to go through customs, and claim baggage, and check it with the other airline, is this doable whatsoever?


    No, I would really advise against trying that.

    Arriving Korean air @ 21:00 connecting to JetBlue at 22:00 possible?


    No, that would be completely impossible. Plan on spending the night in New York.


  • Tram
    Dec 5, 2016
    Is the tram inside or outside. Of security?


    The AirTrain runs outside security. Only Delta's shuttle bus between Terminals 2 and 4 runs inside security.

    I have a one hour, 20 minute layover from a Nashville flight, to catch a flight to Paris. Is that enough time?


    What airlines are you flying?


  • Connecting flight

    Hi, I have a flight landing at JFK New York at 4:00pm on 26 December 2016 via an Air Berlin from Berlin Tegel and then have an Air Berlin (operated by AA) flight to San Juan at 6:45pm. Will 2,45 hours be sufficient time taking immigration and baggage check-in into account. Do I have to change terminal? Thank you Martina


    Yes, that is enough time. Both flights will be in Terminal 8.


  • claim bags and recheck?
    Dec 5, 2016
    My family of four are arriving in JFK from SMF via JetBlue on Dec 18 8:06am. We have a connecting flight to Dubai at 10:40am. Do we have to claim our bags at JFK and recheck them to Dubai? If so this this enough time to claim bags, recheck, and go through security?


    Are both flights on the same reservation or is it two separate reservations? If it's the same reservation you just have to take the AirTrain to Terminal 4 from Terminal 5 and go through security and you have enough time.


  • enough time to make connection both ways?

    Traveling to Moscow dec 29 - arrive at JFK on delta from RIC at 12:38 PM depart to moscow aeroflot 2:25 PM - no bags to check -- okay for time? and arriving back at JFK 5:25 PM jan 9 with connecting flight to RIC 7:45 pm, same airlines -- enough time? Fast walker :) Thanks!


    Yes, that is enough time. On your way to Moscow you will have to take the Airtrain from Terminal 4 to Terminal 1 on the airtrain and go through security. On the way back you will 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 4 and go through security.


  • terminal 4 connection time for delta

    On Christmas Eve morning I arrive at about 0530 from Tel Aviv and leave for St Maarten at 0835. Returning on Friday evening 6th Jan I have 2 1/2hrs. All with Delta on one ticket. Should I have enough time to connect with check-in baggage, or should I not risk it and keep to cabin baggage? Thanks!


    Yes, that should be enough time.


    thank you !

    You will not have to claim your luggage in JFK if both flights are on the same reservation. Yes, the AirTrain is very well marked.


    One last question is 2 hrs enough for this connection while am having my newborn with me Thanks


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • Transfer from T8 to T5!?
    Dec 1, 2016
    Plane lands in T8 at 4:45pm, my next flight departs from T5 at 7:25pm. Will I have enough time to pick up my bags, take the air train, and check in my bags by 6:40pm?


    Is your arrival domestic or International? If it's domestic that should be enough time. if it's international it will be close.

    Hi, I will be travelling from Shanghai to JFK. Eta JFK is 1325hrs...my next flight to Orlando is at 1455hrs. Will I be able to catch the flight on time? If I can't what are the possibilities of taking the next flight? I have booked the flights to Orlando. There are 5 of us.


    That's barely enough time if everything is on the same reservation and everything goes perfectly. If everything is on the same reservation you will be rebooked on the next available flight if you miss your reservation, but it may take awhile for them to get all 5 of you there, especially if you are traveling during peak season.
