  • 2 hour connection time

    We are arriving at JFK from CDG on Delta and have a Delta connector to LA within a 2 hour window. Is this enough time to get through customs?

    I'm arriving at JFK from Zurich on American. I have Global Entry and will be carrying on. I have 90 minutes to catch an American flight to Dallas. Is this enough time?


    Yes, with Global Entry you should be OK if the flight from Zurich is on-time.


  • Can you get from Domestic to International flight in 55min
    Feb 23, 2017
    Traveling in to JFK from ATL on Delta, option gives a 55min layover to catch Delta flight to Iceland KEV... is that enough time to make it through necessities prior?


    There are no "necessities". You just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. That is enough time.

    Hi, i'm travelling from UK to Canada with my 2 kids. We arrive on Virgin at JFK Term 4 at 16:30. I'm looking to fly out with Air Canada at 19:55 from Term 8. I'll be changing airlines, so no through ticket, so i'll have to clear security, collect my bags, re-check my bags and back out through security. Is 3h 25m enough time?


    Air Canada does not use Terminal 8. They use Terminal 7. Yes, that should be enough time.




  • Virgin/Delta connections (LHR - JFK - BUF)
    Feb 22, 2017
    I am travelling to Buffalo via JFK on Sunday. My flight with Virgin Atlantic arrives in JFK at 14:50 and my connecting flight (with Delta) departs at 16:26. I am assuming I will need to go through Security/Customs etc but will I need to collect my luggage or will this be automatically transferred? Thank you.


    Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security and to your departure gate. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Arriving 5:40pm on Airberlin flight from Geneva in Terminal 8 and connecting to JetBlue flight departing at 8:08pm from Terminal 5. US citizen with checked bags. Will have have enough time to check bags into my JetBlue flight?


    Everything will have to go perfectly in order for you to make it.


  • Transfer from American to Air France
    Feb 18, 2017
    I'm scheduled on a flight arriving on American Airlines at 8:15 PM (terminal 8), with a flight on Air France departing at 9:50 PM (terminal 1). Is this a feasible connection? Will i need to go through security again?


    Yes, you will have to go through security again in T1. If you have checked bags that is not possible. With no checked bags it's barely possible if everything goes perfectly.


    Thank you!


  • Catching a connecting flight
    Feb 18, 2017
    I am planning on buying two tickets; one from London to JFK arriving at 11:10am on the 24th June 2017 and another on the same day leaving JFK at 13:50 to Augusta, Maine. I'm coming in on a J1 visa and have been to the USA before but is 2 hours 40 mins enough time to do all the necessary baggage collection, baggage drop off and checking in etc.


    It's possible but leaves no time to spare.

  • Air Maroc to Delta connection
    Feb 17, 2017
    I am arriving in Terminal 1 on Royal Air Maroc from Casablanca at 5:35pm on a Tuesday. I have 1 hour 50 minutes to clear customs (I have Global Entry), collect my bag, get to Terminal 2 and re-check my bag for a 7:25pm flight on Delta to Boston (business class). Am I likely to make my connection?


    It's possible but everything has to go perfectly.


    Thank you! Fingers crossed, then.


  • Terminal 5 to Terminal 1
    Feb 18, 2017
    I'll be arriving on JetBlue (Terminal 5) at 21:58 and my next flight is on EVA Air (Terminal 1) at 00:20. All flights were booked under one reservation. I'll have one checked-in luggage. Do I need to pick up and re-check in the luggage? Do I need to go through the security check again? How to go from Terminal 5 to Terminal 1? Do I have enough time (2 hr 22 min)? Thank you.


    If your JetBlue flight is domestic you don't have to do anything with your bag. Just take the AirTrain from T5 to T1 and go through security. You have enough time.


    JetBlue flight is domestic and EVA Air flight is international. Thanks much for the response!


  • Delta to AA/international to domestic connection
    Feb 17, 2017
    Hi, I am looking at a flight arriving at JFK from Iceland (KEF) on Delta (Terminal 4) on a Monday mid-morning, and would like to then take an AA flight on a separate ticket from JFK to DFW. There would be a little over 4 hours of connection time. I am a US passport holder. Is that sufficient time to get my bag, go through customs/immigration, change terminals (from T4 to T8, I believe) and recheck my bag with AA? Thanks.


    Yes, that is enough time.
