I should have said both flights are with American Airlines.
I will be arriving at JFK at 1.15pm terminal 8 from UK.
my connecting flight leaves terminal 8 at 3.14. Do I have enough time to clear customs 3rd and if not what happens then.
Hi I will be flying next month from Casablanca Morocco(CMN) to Orlando FL(MCO) through JFK. both flights are on the same reservation. first flight is with Royal air maroc and the second one is with Jetblue airlines. I have a layover in JFK of 3h45 mins. the first flight(from CMN to JFK) will arrive in Terminal 1. The second one will depart from Terminal 5. I want to know how much time needed to pass through immigartion then customs since i am a new vistor. and how to do a luggage transfer from terminal 1 to terminal 5. is it possible to drop off my bags in Terminal 1 or I have to collect my bags and then take them to Terminal 5 for Check_in.
Hi my son is flying from Atlanta on Sunday to JFK then catching flight to London he only got hour to get his connection flight will this be enough time for him
What airlines?
Delta for both I think it lands at terminal 4 and leave same terminal
I have a guest going to detroit on 23 Jun 2017. Jakarta - CAN - JFK by CZ and JFK - Detroit by Delta
The problem is flight CZ from Jakarta delay 2 hours and the rest connecting time as he arrived at JFK by CZ and go to Delta Air for cek in only 2 hours left. Is he has enough time to catch flight to detroit?
So he has 2 hours to connect in JFK? If both flights are on the same reservation that should be just enough time.
I fly with Delta from Moscow to Dallas with a stop at JFK. We arrive at Terminal 4 Gate B24 at 4:40 p.m. and depart from Terminal 4 Gate B53 at 6:20 p.m. Since it's the same airline, do I have to collect luggage to run it through the customs/security OR it will be delivered to the final destination at Dallas? Do we go through the customs/immigration line in Terminal 4 OR we have to leave the terminal, go through the immigration at different terminal, then collect luggage, check it in again and then go back to Terminal 4? Is 1 hour 30 minutes will be enough? 6:20 p.m. is the latest flight from JFK to Dallas this day. Thank you
You have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate. All of this happens in Terminal 4. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
My wifes inbound AA flight to JFK is delayed from Charlotte due to weather. Now scheduled to arrive at 11:04 pm in terminal 8. She is scheduled to leave on a 1:00 Aeroflot flight that says departing Terminal 1 and that they close the boarding on at 12:40 (20 Minutes before flight). Aeroflot tells me if she misses the flight due to delayed inbound flight that is not Aeroflot the ticket is then lost and another needs to be purchased. Will she be able to make her connection? Or do I need to change the ticket before their midnight time limit to a later flight? What is your recommendation....
Does the Air Train only go in one direction, since the air port is in a circle, or do you have Air Trains going in both directions?
Example You Get on at terminal 4 can you immediately get off on terminal 2 or do you have to ride the entire circle passing terminal 5, 1 etc.. to get to terminal 2
There are trains going both directions. The train that goes in ascending order goes to the train station after it gets to terminal 8. The train that goes in reverse order just goes in a circle around the terminals.
How long does it take to get to terminal 2 from terminal 4. Are you walking? Is there a bus service? is there a tram?
There is bus service inside security and also the AirTrain outside security. Taking the bus inside security should take less than 20 minutes.
I, myself, and my wife will be travelling from Minneapolis to Delhi. We've got tickets with same booking code and the route is MSP-JFK by Delta, JFK-CDG by Air France, CDG-DEL by Air France.
Whatever the luggage, I'll do check in Minneapolis, it will be delivered in Delhi or I've to collect luggage at JFK and rebook for Delhi?
Secondly, I think that Delta will land in terminal 4 and Air France is from terminal 1, how long it takes to reach to terminal 1 from 4.
Your baggage will go through to Delhi. In JFK you will take the AirTrain to Terminal 1 and go through security. It will take 30-45 minutes.
