In may our flight leaves bos at 6 and arrives at JFK at 7:24, and our flight from JFK leaves at 8:35. We are flying delta. Is this enough time to deboard, transfer to the next gate and reboard? Will my luggage make the flight? It is a single reservation. Will we need to go through security again?
Yes, that is enough time. You won't have to go through security again. If you arrive in Terminal 2 and depart from Terminal 4, Delta runs a shuttle between them inside security.
On June 29, I will arrive on an American Airlines flight at 4:08 p.m. I assume that will be at terminal 8. My next flight is on Emirates at 11:00 p.m. (from terminal 4 presumably). I will have checked bags, and the flights are not on the same reservation. What is the easiest way to handle this?
You will have to claim your bags in T8, take them on the AirTrain to T4, re-check them with Emirates (the Emirates desk may not be open at that time, it would be open by 8 PM), then go through security and to your gate.
HI, my flight arrives at terminal 8 at 16.05 and leaves at terminal 1 at 17.55. Do I have enough time to make it? How do I transfer between the two?
The AirTrain connects all terminals outside security. Where are you flying from and to and on what airlines? Are both flights on the same reservation or is it two separate reservations? Do you have checked bags?

I am flying from Tucson to New York with American Airlines and from New York yo Rome with Alitalia. it is the same reservation, so I don't need to check my bags.Thanks for your reply!
That should be enough time then.
thank you!
I will be flying in to JFK from Rochester, NY.
Do you have a question?
I have 1 1/2 hours to transfer from Delta at terminal 4 to Air France at terminal 1. If flights are on time, is this possible?
It is a single reservation as well.
That is just enough time. you will have to take the AirTrain to Terminal 1 and go through security.
I arrive Jet Blue - ticket states main as a terminal at 7:01 am. Then leave on Jet Blue - terminal 5 at 8:00am. How do I get from Main Terminal to Terminal 5 and is one hour enough time?
Main is the departure terminal for your first flight. You will arrive and depart from Terminal 5. Where are you flying into JFK from?
Hi I am landing at JFK terminal 2 with Delta at 9:18p and flying out at 11:45p from Terminal 4 with Emirates to Dubai. Is this enough time?
That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. You will have to transfer your bags yourself to Emirates.
Thanks, I've changed my domestic flight to arriving at 8pm. Is sufficient?
That should work much better.
Hi. My flight arrives at terminal 4 at 8:30 and leaves terminal 1 at 11. Is it enough time. How do I transfer between the two?
You take the AirTrain and you will have to go through security again in Terminal 1. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I switched to lga with a 4 hr layover. Is that doable thanks for your response
That's doable, but because of the airport change, not really that much easier, especially because LGA is under construction and a mess right now.
Hi - I am arriving at Terminal 4 from Delhi via AirIndia. I need to transfer to JetBlue to go to Boston. Is there a JetBlue bag drop after clearing customs at Terminal 4. I hope I don't need to carry bags to JetBlue terminal 5. JetBlue flight is on the same ticket.
If it is on the same reservation then your bags will be tagged to BOS and you can re-check your bags after clearing customs in T4.
Thanks so much for your help !
Next week I am flying from Pittsburgh on Delta to Kennedy and have 45 minutes to change planes to another Delta flight to London. Its operated by Virgin Atlantic. Other then flight delay is it the same terminal?
Yes, both flights should be in Terminal 4. This is a very tight connection but is possible if the flight from Pittsburgh is on-time.
