  • Enough time? Connecting to Taipaeu
    Dec 24, 2016
    1
    Hi, I'm flaying from IAD on jet blue on 12/25 getting in at 9:53pm. Have to connect on CI for a 12:20am flight to Taipei. Do I have enough time to get checked baggage and check in for my international flight? Seems tight.

     

    That is enough time if the first flight is on-time. If both flights are on the same reservation then you won't have to claim your bags in JFK.

     

  • Norwegian to jetblue

    Hi there, I am thinking of buying a ticket on Norwegian Air from Stockholm arriving in JFK at 8.05pm and getting on a JetBlue flight to Charleston, SC leaving at 9.52pm on JetBlue airways. Do I have enough time when you add customs, getting bags and rechecking in?

     

    With checked bags I don't think that's realistic. Even without checked bags it would be pretty difficult. Plan on spending the night in New York.

     

  • 1.5 hours delta t2 to 4
    Dec 22, 2016

    arriving on 26th from manchester uk onward to orlando, We have 1.5 hours to get from t2 to t4. with delta. whats the process and will we make it ?

     

    You have your terminals reversed. You will arrive in 4 and depart from 2. You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re check desk, then either take the AirTrain to T2 and go through security or go through security in T4 and take the shuttle bus to T2. This is a very difficult connection/

     

    thanks : what will happen if we miss the connection. surely if delta booked us on they thought it possible - will it they will have to work it out for us ?

     

    do you think if are nice to people in immigration and explain out situation we could work our way to the front of the queue.

     

    You will be rebooked on the next available flight to Orlando, but considering it's the holidays that may be very difficult. They may send you across town to LaGuardia airport.

     

  • YYZ - JFK - LHR (45 mins?!)
    Dec 22, 2016

    Hi, Im booked on a flight from YYZ to LHR with Delta & Virgin (same ticket) with a 45 min layover in JFK - will I have enough time to actually make the connecting flight to LHR?

     

    Yes, that is enough time if the flight from Toronto is on-time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto.

     

    Thanks ZAP, if the Toronto flight isnt on time and as a result miss my connection to LHR, will Delta/Virgin put me on the next one to LHR?

     

    Yes, they will.

     

    Thanks for the help ZAP!

     

  • ATL - JFK - ATH

    In june I am traveling from ATL to JFK to ATH. I am flying Delta. My flight arrives in JFK at 5:49pm and departs at 730pm for Athens. Is this enough time? Do I go through security/customs in JFK?

     

    There is no US Customs when leaving the US. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If you arrive in Terminal 2, Delta runs a shuttle bus inside security to Terminal 4 where you depart.

     

    Also, yes, you have enough time.

     

  • AA 4:00 PM arrival to EgyptAir 6:30 departure

    Considering a direct flight Tucson to JFK that would arrive at 4:00 pm (terminal 4?) to an EgyptAir flight to Cairo that departs Terminal 8 at 6:30. Not on one ticket. Is this impossible?

     

    AA flights arrive in Terminal 8, not Terminal 4. Egyptair flights depart from Terminal 4, not 8. You will have to claim your bags from AA, take them on the AirTrain to Terminal 4, re-check them with Egyptair and go through security. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

  • Milan To Miami through JFK
    Dec 22, 2016

    Arriving 1.30 PM form Milan (terminal 2) and departing 3.25 from Terminal 2. Guess I have to go through immigration, custom and security again. Seems pretty tight. I wander if it's faster to go through security at terminal 2 than jitney to terminal 4 or airtrain to terminal 4 and go through security there. Thanks

     

    I am flying to Charleston from LHR next month and have to change planes at JFK. First flight is with Virgin from LHR to JFK. Connecting flight is with Delta (Virgin's partner airline). I have 2 hours turnaround time at JFK and ticket was sold as one ticket. Is this do- able?

     

    No flights from Milan arrive in Terminal 2. If you are on Alitalia you will arrive in Terminal 1 and if you are on Delta you will arrive in Terminal 4. Susie, your connection is doable.

     

    Sorry. I arrive in terminal 4 and than fly to Miami from terminal 2. All the rest is correct

     

    ***, then yes, you will arrive in Terminal 4, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re check desk, then either take the AirTrain to T2 and go through security or go through security in T4 and take the shuttle bus to T2. You should have enough time.

     

  • Zurich to Raleigh through JFK - enough time?

    I'm flying from Zurich on Dec 31, arriving in JFK at 13:25 on American and connecting on American at 2:54 for Raleigh, NC. Will this be enough time? Do I have to get my bags and recheck them? Thank you

     

    Yes, you have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security. You have just enough time if everything goes perfectly.

     

  • Transiting between terminals

    my son arrives from montreal on delta airline at 6.40 pm( at terminal 4). He then has a flight on Cathay pacific from terminal 7 at 12.45 am ( so has around 6 hours). We are hoping that time is enough. How does he travel from terminal 4 to terminal 7? thanks

     

    The airtrain connects all terminals outside security. He has plenty of time. He will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal, so all he has to do in JFK is claim his bags from Delta, take them on the AirTrain to T7, and check them with Cathay once the check-in desk opens and go through security.

    I am flying from PBI Florida internally with delta to JFK my flight arrives in at 15:10 and I then have to take a flight with virgin at 18:30 to LHR I assume as I have come through internally I don't need to go through immigration- will I have enough time to connect and is there any way I can check bags straight through.

     

    If both flights are on the same reservation you just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, nothing with your bags. Yes, there is no US Immigration when leaving the US. If you arrive in Terminal 2, Delta runs a shuttle inside security to Terminal 4 where you depart.

    Departing Heathrow and arriving to JFK @ 17.45 then connecting to MCO @ 20.55 - will our checked luggage be movved for us and is this enough time?

     

    Both with Delta by the way!

     

    You will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate. You should have plenty of time.

    That is just enough time. Yes, she will have to go through US Immigration, claim her bags, go through US Customs, re-check her bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to her departure gate.

    how get to la guardia im traveling to montreal

     

    It depends how much time you have. if you have more than 3 hours you can wait for a shared shuttle bus. If you have less than 3 hours I recommend a taxi. It will cost about $30.

    Hi, My brother is arriving today from London via American airline, landing at 13.25 and has an other flight at 14.55 for final destination Montreal, Canada. Does he have to clear customs in JFK and recheck his luggage and if so does he have enough time ?? »Thank you

     

    Yes, in JFK he has to go through US Immigration, claim his bags, go through US Customs, re-check his bags at the re-check desk, and go through security. That is a very difficult connection. I hope he made it.

     

  • Luggage & Timing question

    Hi guys, I will be arriving from Casablanca at JFK's Terminal 1 with Royal Air Maroc and will be departing at Terminal 5 to Portland with Jetblue. I will only have 2h35 layover, is it enough? Also do I need to grab my luggage and drop it in T1 or take it with me to T5? Thanks so much

     

    You will have to claim your bags to go through US Customs. If it's two separate reservations you will have to take your bags with you to T5 to re-check. If it's one reservation then you can re-check your bags in T1. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

    i't's one reservation, the 2 companies are interlined I believe, I'll just drop the bags in T1 and head to T5 to catch my flight. Thank you ZAP

     

    Dear all, can you answer please, do i need any transit visa if i change terminal? i'm flying from canada to europe visa JFK aiport. i need to change from terminal 4 to terminal 1

     

    Passo, what country are you a citizen of? If you are a citizen of a country that requires a visa to visit the US, then you need a visa to transit the US, whether you have to change terminals or not.
