Hello I fly man-JFK arriving at 12.55 terminal 4, we then travel to MCO via jet blue terminal 5 at 15.52. Is this window of 3hrs enough time to pass immigration, customs, re-check luggage etc? Thankyou
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hi, I will be arriving at JFK on Emirates at 08:15 (I believe at T4) and I have a connection on Jetblue to Montego Bay at 10:32. I believe this is from T5.

As I will need to go through Immigration and Customs and re-check my luggage, is the connection time sufficient.

Thank you.
If it's one reservation that's barely enough time. If it's two separate reservations I'd say that's probably not enough time.
What's the easiest way to get from Terminal 4 to Terminal 5 baggage claim to meet a friend and my ride..
The AirTrain.
I am arriving JFk on Lufthansa from Frankfurt at 1:30pm and have a separate reservation on Jetblue to Santiago at 2:59pm. Is that enough time to clear immigration (I have global entry) and customs and recheck at Jetblue?
With checked bags, I say that's probably not enough time. With no checked bags it might barely be possible.
Flying in on Delta from Caicos and leaving on Delta on same reservation. 1:45 minute layover is too short for customs and immigration correct?
That's just enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Will 2.5 hrs be enough time to disembark from an AA flight and pick up luggage in terminal 8, then get through security and check in for a Korean Air flight in terminal 1?
I have a knee defect and cannot walk long distances-what assistance is there for me to transfer?
You need to contact your airline to request wheelchair service.
Daughter coming in on Delta flight from Heathrow in mid December on a Sunday. Need to book another flight home to Chicago. Could be Delta but likely another carrier. How much time to budget for arrival, immigration/customs, bag pick up and recheck, transfer terminals?
If it's two separate reservations I'd want 3 hours.
i am arriving at JFK at 09.45am from Charlotte i have a 2nd flight on a separate reservation to catch at 12;00 midday Norwegian Airline to London is this enough time for security and baggage collection and checkin?
That will be pretty difficult. It's only possible if everything goes perfectly.
I have a Delta flight to JFK and another El Al flight to Tel Aviv. Do I need to recheck luggage at JFK or can I sent it through from Delta to El Al?
You need to claim your bags from Delta and re-check them with El Al.
