  • Minimum international flights connection time
    Nov 25, 2016
    Arriving into JFK British Airways T7? 7:30pm with onward connection JetBlue to Caribbean 11:00pm. Is this enough connection time?


    Yes, that should be enough time if the British Airways flight is on-time. You will have to transfer any checked bags yourself to JetBlue.


  • Customs times
    Nov 22, 2016
    I'm arriving at JFK from Madrid and have a connecting flight to Charlotte 1 hr 45 minutes later. Is this enough time to get through customs and recheck bags?


    What airlines are you flying? Are both tickets on the same reservation or two separate reservations?


  • Connecting between JFK Terminals
    Nov 21, 2016
    I am Arriving from Ohare to JFK by delta at terminal 2 at 9.15 AM and catching Etihad to Abudhabi at Terminal 4 by 2.15 PM.My query is do I have enough time and do I need to claim my luggage at JFK and re checkin at Terminal 4 . How do I transport between T2 & T4


    You will arrive in Terminal 4. Yes, you will have to claim your bags from Delta and then take them to the Etihad check-in desk in T4. You have plenty of time.


    Thanks a lot . my assumption was that Delta arrive at T2


    Delta Connection flights use T4.


  • 1 hour layover from MoBay
    Nov 21, 2016
    Arrive at JFK at 6:41pm on 2-3-17 then depart at 7:40pm to PDX. Is 1 hour long enough to get through customs and to our next flight?


    That is absolutely NOT enough time


    Exactly what I thought. Schedule was recently changed by Delta so will contact them regarding it. Thank you so much for the quick reply!


  • How do i get from domestic to international
    Nov 21, 2016
    I have a flight that lands at JFK domestic terminal 5 and then I have a 2 hour lay-over to catch my connecting flight from JFK terminal 4 to Australia. I have never been to JFK before and would like an idea on how do I get from terminal 5 in domestic to international terminal 4? Thank you


    You take the AirTrain. You will have to go through security again in Terminal 4. There are no nonstop flights from JFK to Australia. What airline are you flying out of JFK?


    Thank you. I'm flying Emirates via Dubai. Will the air train get me around all the other terminals and back to terminal 4 with time to spare? It's an Emirates ticket all the way through.


    You can take it directly from 5 to 4 (there's one train that goes in the reverse direction). You should have enough time.


  • Would I have enough time to connect from Term 2,4 to Term 1
    Nov 21, 2016
    I'll be arriving on Delta to Term 2 or 4 (not sure yet) from Atlanta at 12:41. My next flight is on Aeroflot from Term 1 at 2.25pm (1hr 44min layover). Would I have enough time to make this connection? Thanks


    You have just enough time. You will have to take the AirTrain to Terminal 1 and go through security.

  • Level 1 to Level 3
    Nov 21, 2016
    My Arrival flight is at Level1 Terminal 4 (Sun) and Departure is from Level 3 Terminal 4 .. Do i need to do security again At JFK ? I am flying from MSP to Dubai changing at JFK as above


    What Airline are you flying to JFK? Are your tickets on two separate reservations? Do you have checked bags?


    SY247- MSP- JFK-- Sun County EK206-JFK-DXB Ticket on Same reservation and yes I have check in Luggage


    SY247- MSP- JFK-- Sun County EK206-JFK-DXB Ticket on Same reservation and yes I have check in Luggage


    Then all you have to do in JFK is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • enough time
    Nov 23, 2016
    Hi, if anybody can help, I have a flight from Europe arriving at T4 at 11.30 and then I have a connection to the Bahamas on T5 at 13.59. Is this enough time, as I don't know if I'll have to claim the luggage. Thanks in advance.


    That will be really difficult. You will have to claim your baggage to take it through US Customs. Are your tickets on the same reservation or two separate reservations?


    yes, my tickets are on the same reservation.

  • Baggage claim on international flights
    Nov 16, 2016
    Hi. We will be flying in December from Toronto-JFK-Amsterdam-Norway (one ticket). We were wondering if we have to claim our luggage in JFK or do we just have to from arrival gate to departure gate? Thanks in advance


    You do not have to claim your bags in JFK. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto.

    We are traveling Delta from Zurich with a one hour 39 minute layover to go through customs, security, and get to the gate for our Delta connecting flight to Nashville. We plan to have carry-on luggage only. Is this possible?


    It's possible but it leaves no time to spare for delays.

    Yes, you will have to do that. You will have to take your bags on the AirTrain from your arrival Terminal to Terminal 8 to re-check them with American. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Toronto Via Paris (orig. Kenya)
    Nov 14, 2016
    So I am flying from Kenya via Paris (american airlines). We land at 1pm. I am booking a separate reservation to get to Toronto (Delta). They have a flight at 4pm. Does this seem reasonable?


    Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
