  • Connecting from Delta to Virgin at JFK
    Sep 26, 2016

    Hi, I will be arriving on a Delta flight from LAX and connecting to a Virgin Atlantic flight to the UK with a 2hr 28 min layover. Do I have to claim my baggage and recheck it, and do I have enough time? Thank you!

     

    Also, do I have to go through security again if my LA flight comes in to Terminal 2? Thanks!

     

    All LA flights arrive in Terminal 4. If both flights are on the same reservation you don't have to do anything with your bags - just walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

    Thank you!

     

  • Arriving Jet Blue Leaving for Marakesh

    I made a tentative reservation on Air Maroc 203 at 8:35 AM Terminal 1. I am coming from BTV in theory on Jet Blue 233 arriving in Terminal 5 at 7:04 AM, using carry on luggage. Is this possible?

     

    It's not outright impossible, but it's very very difficult. If that's the only flight to Marrakesh I would fly into New York the night before.

     

  • Need to go through security again from terminal 4 to terminal 1?

    I am flying on Virgin America Flight VX34 from San Fran to JFK (Terminal 4 ?) but then I am taking an international flight to Naples, Italy (Meridiana - operated by Air Italy Terminal 1? ). Since both Terminals are considered international terminals, I believe, do I need to go through security again even though I only have carry-on luggage? Or just take Air Tran to Terminal 1

     

    Yes, you have to take the AirTrain to Terminal 1 and go through security. It has nothing to do with them being "international terminals" or not. The only terminal at JFK that does not handle international flights at JFK is Terminal 2. There's no need to ask the same question twice.

     

  • time between internal arrival and international departure with bags

    Hi, I'm arriving at JFK at 18.30 on an internal shuttle flight from DC and depart at 21.00 on an international flight to UK with checked bags on both flights. I booked the flights separately, and they are with different airlines - would I need to collect and re-check my bag for the international flight and is that enough time to do this? THank you!

     

    What airlines are you flying? You need to provide more information to answer this question.

     

    hi sorry, it's delta with no checked bags or with checked bags - I'd like to check both options. thank you

     

    and the transatlantic flight leaving at 21.00 is with virgin atlantic.

    Is 1 hour & 40 minutes enough time to get through customs and go to Terminal 2? Any recommendations on how to get through quickly?

     

    What airline are you flying into JFK? Where are you coming from? Are both tickets on the same reservation? Do you have checked bags?

     

  • Transfer at JFK from T4 to T5 in 1 hr 50 min

    My parents are coming from ICN on OZ222 (arriving 11:30 AM) and will be transferring to JetBlue 2320 (departing 1:18 PM), with checked baggages. They need to clear customs and border control. I booked the jetblue flight without thinking too much, but I just realized that it might not be enough time to do so. Can someone give me an opinion?

     

    also, how about the other way? JFK to ICN will depart at 13:25. I would like to book a flight arriving JFK at 11:17 AM. Would it be okay?

     

    Is it two separate reservations or one reservation? If it's two separate reservations it's definitely not enough time.

    Flying into JFK T5 from LAX, connecting to Edinburgh Uk in T5. Both Delta. No baggage. 45mins. Is this doable?

     

    Delta does not use T5 at JFK. Both flights will be in T4. Yes, that is enough time if the flight from LAX is on-time.

    Is 1 hour 9 minutes enough time to make a connection fro T1 to T4? We will be in economy (~ row 40).

     

    No, that is totally not enough time. Where are you flying from and to and on what airlines?

     

    SFO to Venice on Delta

     

    Then you will not arrive in Terminal 1. You depart from Terminal 1 from SFO. In JFK you will arrive and depart from Terminal 4. You do have enough time.

    Hi my flight is ex LAS to LHR via JFK and shows 45 mins connection time, i land and depart from T8 . Any idea if this will work . Many thanks

     

    Yes, that is possible as long as the first flight is on-time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    I am flying with my three toddlers I am moving so I have lots of goods will It be possible to carry all these goods around 160kg on trolley and changing terminal, arriving at jfk terminal 8 then departing to Orlando through terminal 5, is there any possibility to higher someone that can carry all goods with me

     

    No, there is nobody to hire. You can rent a cart and bring it on the airtrain between terminals.

    Hi Coming from Europe and changing at T8. Both AA flights and flying in Business. Can I make it? Thank you so much for the reply

     

    And no luggage

     

    With no checked bags and traveling in Business you have a chance, but it still won't be easy.

    I am flying in on SAA and obviously have to go through customs ect. Looking to fly out on AA to Miami at 8:15 leaving 1h35 minutes. Is this enough time? Regards

     

    On two separate reservations with checked bags, no, that's not enough time.

    Hi, I'm trying to book a flight on Qatar airways. Domestic arrival in JFK via AA and then connect to Qatar airways. I see they have flights with a 41mins layover in JFK, is this enough time for the connection? I see that Qatar airways operates from Terminal 7/8, not sure which is which. Thank you

     

    The Terminal depends on which flight you are on, the morning flight uses Terminal 7, the evening flight uses Terminal 8. If you're on the evening flight that's doable but risky. If you're on the morning flight, that's impossible.

    Hi, I am flying in next May to JFK Airport on a Qantas flight from Melbourne, Australia (via LAX) arriving at 4:40pm into I believe terminal 7. I have decided that when I arrive at JFK to get a flight to Montreal for a few days before returning back to New York for the rest of my trip with Delta Airlines, they have one at 8:05pm (I already purchased a few months ago my ticket from Melbourne to JFK and back). I will have cleared customs and immigration in LAX (as that's the first point of entry into USA), so only have to get my luggage, changed terminal, check in etc. Is there enough time when I land to catch the Delta flight? I prefer not to have to stay in manhattan or at an airport hotel for the night.

     

    Yes, that should be possible if the flight from LAX is on-time.
