  • San Juan-JFK-Montreal connection

    Flying Delta. 1hr 45 min layover at JFK from San Juan PR to Montreal (early evening). Should be sufficient however should we expect any issues re luggage etc? Do not know terminal or gates yet. Thanks

     

  • Connection time?.

    I am flying into D 44 and flying out of D 36 with a one hr. Time. Is it possible?

     

    Is your first flight domestic or International? What airline or airlines are you flying? I'm not familiar with any gates that start with "D" at JFK.

     

    You are correct...arriving Delta 3880 at gate B 44, which I cannot find on map. Leaving Delta 484, leaving from gate B 36, which appears on the terminal 4 map.

     

    Didn't mention that my first flight is domestic. Then, international

     

    That is plenty of time. all you have to do is a 2 or 3 minute walk between gates.

     

  • How much time?

    I'm flying into JFK Terminal 4 from London on Virgin due to land at 18.30 and flying from JFK Terminal 5 at 20.33 on Jetblue to Denver. Have allowed enough time to get through immigration and change terminals?

     

    Did you purchase your tickets together or separately? If separately it will be hard for you to get through customs and then get your baggage to T5 before the checked baggage cutoff (this is assuming you are checking bags). if you purchased tickets together or are not checking a bag I think you'll be OK.

     

  • Flight Connection - enough time?

    I will be flying from DUB to JFK arriving in T5 and need to transfer to Delta (T3 i think) going to MCO. I have separate tickets so will need to collect my bags and checkin for the second flight. I have 2hr50mins in between both. Does anyone know if this is enough time?

     

    JFK no longer has a T3. Your Delta flight will depart from T2 or T4. Since you pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin you should have enough time. The AirTrain connects all terminals outside security.

     

  • Terminal 2 to Terminal 1 in 2 hours

    My Mom have to connect domestic flight from Denver in JFK with international fly to Moscow. As far as I understood Delta flight arrives at 16:35 to terminal 2 and Aeroflot flight to Moscow departures at 19:10 from Terminal 1. Will it be enough time to connect? Is it easy to find shuttle bus or train near Terminal 2? Is there any passport control for those who arrived to Terminal 2?

     

    You will not have to go through passport control in JFK. You will take the AirTrain from your arrival terminal (you could arrive in Terminal 2 or 4) to Terminal 1, then go through security. You should have enough time.

  • Domestic to Internaional terminal transfer

    I arrive on Delta Domestic and have to connect on China Eastern (Yikes) in a different terminal. When I transfer terminals am I leaving the secure area and have to go through security again? Or is this like a domestic transfer and I just move from gate to gate. I'm not checking any luggage.

     

    Yes, when you exit the terminal to take the AirTrain to your departure terminal you will be outside the secure area, so you will have to go through security again.

     

  • Want to use AA lounge in Terminal 8

    I am arriving in Terminal 4 by Delta at 8:35 AM on a domestic flight and then departing from Terminal 4 itself on an international flight at 2:25 PM. Want to go to terminal 8 to use the only AA lounges in JFK. Would I be allowed to go to Terminal 8 for that? And do I need to clear the arrivals immigration when getting out to go back from Terminal 8 to Terminal 4? Thank you, KG

     

    You will not have to go through Immigration in JFK, but you will have to go through security when you enter T8 and when you re-enter T4. They are also not obligated to allow you to enter T8.

     

    Thank you ZAP for your quick input.

    I have a flight in early April, arrive on Delta at 7:30, leave on Iberia at 9:30. Is that a reasonable connection time?

     

    Without checked bags, it should be pretty easy as long as your first flight isn't heavily delayed. With checked bags, since you will have to transfer them between Terminals yourself, it may be difficult. With checked bags I would want more time.

     

  • Norwegian from Stockholm to JetBlue to Miami

    Planning to arrive from Stockholm with Norwegian at 8:00 PM on a Friday (Terminal 1). Leaving for Fort Lauderdale at 9:50 PM (Terminal 5). Is this doable? 1h50 to clear immigration and make it over. No checked luggage, and plan to already be checked into the JetBlue flight.

     

    Should be barely possible.

     

    Barely possible - as in possible, but tight? Would getting JetBlue "Even More Speed" help, or are the key time-risks in AirTrain and immigration (not an American citizen).

     

    Even more speed probably wouldn't help much. the main time risk is immigration.

     

    Many thanks, ZAP! Very helpful.

    How much time and what transport do I use to get from domestic delta flight 400 arriving JFK 2:44PM to the American terminal for an international American flight 106 leaving at 6:35PM. Should I just take a carry on or do I have time to check bags.

     

    You have time for checked bags. You get between Terminals via the AirTrain. You will arrive at Terminal 4 and depart from Terminal 8.

  • Barcelona to nyc to lax

    hi, I have a flight from Barcelona to nyc then to lax on delta. The layover time is 85 mins. Is this enough time to get through customs and make my flight? Would be in nyc airport at around 3 or 4 pm. Not sure how packed it is at this time. Thanks.

     

    That will be difficult. That is one of the busiest times of day and that is 5 minutes less than the minimum recommended connection time. It's possible though, and if you do miss your connection Delta does operate several flights from JFK to LAX that you can be rebooked on.

     

  • T8 to T5

    Arriving T8 from CDG (have to clear immigration and customs). Connecting flight is Delta from T4. Since separate tickets bags have to be rechecked. Passenger is on wheelchair. Question is can the passenger make the connection under 2 hours?

     

    Under 2 hours would be very very difficult.

     

  • Terminal 8 to terminal 4

    Flying to JFK terminal 8 from Manchester UK with AA and out of terminal 4 with JetBlue to Jacksonville. Originally had 2h50m the inbound flight is now later and the outbound later giving us only 2 hours. Is this possible?

     

    JetBlue uses Terminal 5, not Terminal 4. With checked bags this will now be a very difficult connection as you will have to transfer the bags yourself from T8 to T5 and re-check them. Without checked bags it is possible if you check-in online for your JetBlue flight before leaving Manchester.

     

    Sorry, it was delta from T4 not Jet Blue, but I expect the outcome is the same?

     

    Correct

     

    Thanks for the help ZAP. Now just going to take carry on luggage to save time. What is the best way to transfer from T8 to T4?

     

    The only way to get between terminals is the AirTrain.
