  • Iberia / AA connection
    May 31, 2014
    Hi, I am flying from Madrid to Chicago on Iberia, landing at 1445. Do I gave enough tine to catch a connecting flight to O'Hare on AA at 1705? Thanks


  • Delta Las Vegas to Alitalia Rome
    Jun 6, 2014
    I have 45 minutes from the time my Delta flight arrives until the Alitalia flight leaves for Rome. Can I make it in time? How do I get between terminals?


    It shouldn't be too busy. 3 hrs should be plenty of time, even if you have to transfer bags to T5 yourself.

    Hi - I am looking to book an international flight from Charlotte, NC to Cape Town. The Charlotte, NC flight arrives at JFK at 9:30 am on Friday morning. The connecting flight at JFK leaves at 11:15 AM. I don't know terminals or international process. Will this be enough time to make the 11:15 AM flight? Also, should I try NOT to have any checked luggage?

    I land at JFK with AA and have 1hr 30mins to get my connecting flight also with AA to Rio. Is this enough


  • Does the Delta still run shuttle bus between T2 and T4?
    May 30, 2014
    Does anyone know if Delta still runs the shuttle bus between T2 and T4? Or do I have to go out and catch the AirTrain? Thanks.


  • Domestic T8 to International T1 Connection Time
    Jun 4, 2014
    Hello, I'm scheduled to leave an Aeroflat flight at 2:20pm Thursday. I am looking to book an American Airlines flight from Pittsburgh to arrive at 1:29pm. Is this enough time to transfer terminals, go through security and board the 2:20 flight? I'll have only a backpack and carry-on and hope to have my boarding pass printed. Thanks!


    They use Terminal 1.


  • Domestic to International
    May 28, 2014
    hi, looking to fly to JFK from DC not checking any bags but flying out internationally. Will I have to exit to get my new boarding pass or can I get it at the gate and not have to go through security. Two separate airlines. Thanks.


  • Connections - Terminal 4 to 7
    May 26, 2014
    Hello - I arrive terminal 4 at 555 on Virgin America and then leave 815am British Airways from Terminal 7 - is this going to be enough time. I will not have any checked bags. Thank you


    Yes, if your first flight is on-time that should be enough time. You will just have to take the AirTrain from T4 to T7, get your BA boarding pass, and go through security.


    Thank you - what do you think is the latest that flight can get in for me to make the flight. I have to be home for something very important. Also my flight with BA is international - does this affect it?


    I think if your first flight gets to the gate by 6:45 you'd be OK.


  • DELTA - international to domestic
    May 26, 2014
    Hi, If arriving on Delta DL219 from Copenhagen at 2.45 pm (June 5), can I make a Delta flight (DL2901) to Detroit at 4.15 (90 min)? Will my baggage make it? In case of a delay, what's the absolute minimum transfer time needed? Don't know which terminals. Thanx


    You arrive at Terminal 4 (T4) of JFK, where you need to go through passport check, pick up your bags, go through customs clearance & re-check-in your bags where indicated. Thereafter, Delta's continuously running shuttle bus runs between gates B23 of T4 and C60 of T2- no need for security check - add about 12 minutes of transfer time.


    Thanks. But in case of a delayed arrival, what's the absolute minimum transfer time needed? For me? And for my baggage?


    It will be tough to make your connection - right now it is a the minimum connection time. You will arrive in Terminal 4, go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, go through US Customs, then re-check it. Then you will take the AirTrain/Air Terminals train from T4 to T2, go through security, and to your departure gate. momay is incorrect when he says there is no security check.


  • Delta - domestic to international
    May 26, 2014
    Hi, Looking at a connection from DTW to Copenhagen, Denmark on Sunday eve, June 22. Both Delta flights. Arrive 7.33 Depart 8.40. Is that really enough time? If there's a delay, what's the absolute minimum transfer time needed? Is there passport check on departure? Thanx


    It's barely enough time. There will be no passport check. You will arrive in Terminal 2 and have to take Delta's shuttle bus which runs inside security to Terminal 4.


    Thank you, ZAP. Can you also answer my question about Delta international to domestic? The answer I got from momay wasn't really complete. Thanx


  • Terminal 2 to 1
    May 24, 2014
    Hi, I fly from ORD to JFK then have a connection to Paris. My flight from Chicago has been delayed 30min so I will arrive approximately at 10.30 at JFK terminal 2 gate C66, my flight to Paris is at 11.20 terminal 1.its on the same company and won't have to pick up my luggage. Can I make it?


    On arrival at T2 follow signs to the 'Airline Terminals Train' which makes its continuous round between JFK's terminals (counter-clockwise) - your next stops would be T1, where you need to go through security check first, then proceed to your gate. You have sufficient transfer time.


  • T5 domestic to T1 international in 1hr 40mins
    May 24, 2014
    I'm about to book a jetblue flight that gets in to JFK from ORD at 11:10pm on Saturday night. My following flight is at 12:50am Sunday from JFK to ICN (korean air). The transfer is from terminal 5 to terminal 1, domestic to international, and I would only have 1hr 40mins. It is different airlines so I have to check back in, but I have no bags to check and I will have completed web-check in by then. Will I have enough time? How likely is a flight delay for late Saturday night and how reliable is jetblue flight time? FYI I'm a frequent flyer who knows my way around and am a fast walker :)


    With only a carry-on bag, all you need to do is on arrival at T5 follow signs to the 'Airline Terminals Train' which makes its continuous round between JFK's terminals (counter-clockwise). - your next stops would be T4, T3, T2, T1. On arrival at T1 you need to go through security check & proceed to your gate. You have enough time.


  • Terminals 4-2 and shuttle location
    May 24, 2014
    This is my first time flying and I'm trying to figure things out just right as I'm flying by myself. My flight is coming from RIC to JFK Terminal 2 and I have a connecting flight to Terminal 4 that goes to Vancouver. My layover is roughly 2hrs. I need to know if I'll have enough time and where exactly the Delta shuttles are usually located as I have no idea and can't find the information.


    At JFK, Delta's continuously running shuttle bus service between gate C60 at T2 & gate B23 at T4 eliminates the need for security check - add about 12 minutes of transfer time. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/jfk, then click on 'Terminal Map' under 'QUICK LINKS', and scroll down to the detailed text.


  • Terminal 5 to Terminal 4 - have 35 min only
    May 21, 2014
    I have only 35 min between my connection as the first flight was delayed. I have to move from terminal 5 to terminal 4, I already have boarding pass. Is it possible?


    It's possible if you don't have any baggage to transfer and check.


  • Enough time?
    May 21, 2014
    I'm arriving in JFK T8 from YYZ at 0810 and my next flight is CX841 at 0900. Would I be able to make it?


    It will be very difficult - you'll have to take the AirTrain/Air Terminals Train to Terminal 7 and go through security. It's possible but there's very little room for any delays, which are common at JFK.


    If I get into NYC the night before (2145 into LGA), should I go straight to JFK to wait for my next flight or do you have any other advice?


    You'd have to sleep on the floor at JFK if you went straight there - I'd stay in a hotel near JFK or LGA.
