    Coming from LAX to JFK at 17:46 to T4 and departing at 18:50 for MXP (Milan) at T4 also, an hour is enough to get my flight?. Do I need to pass again in immigration booth and collect re-check-in my luggage to custom again.


    There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You have enough time.

    Arriving at JFK T4 from South Africa on SAA at 06:40 on 16 Oct 2015. 1. Is there fast track queue to clear customs if travelling business class (2 travellers, 1 SA passport, 1 Irish)? 2. Assuming not, can we make connection at T5 on JetBlue at 08:45 with checked luggage (this flight economy)? Any tips to save time? Thanks!

  • Arrive JetBlue, connect El-Al
    Oct 4, 2015
    We will be arriving by JetBlue and have 2 hours (assuming on-time) to get to the El-Al terminal. Will this allow sufficient time for the transfer and to get through the El-Al security? Where does the El-Al security take place?


    I am sorry I should have specified that this is JFK and the JetBlue Arrival is terminal 5, departure on El-Al to Tel Aviv is terminal 5. Everything purchased on 1 ticket. Will we have to claim our checked bags or are they booked straight through, and is this 2 hours enough time to clear security?


    So sorry, my typing is bad - departure is from T4.


    Yes, that should be enough time.


    You will go through normal security in T4 and then El Al security at the gate.


  • BCN to JFK to MSP
    Oct 1, 2015
    I am planning to fly from BCN to MSP on December 20 on Delta. There is a layover in JFK for exactly two hours. Is that enough time for me to make it through customs during the holiday season? Do I need to move my carry on from my first flight to my second or will that be handled for me (all planes are Delta)?


    Yes, that should be enough time. You always have to move your carry-on yourself.
