  • From Terminal 4 to Termina 1 in 1h15minutes
    May 24, 2016

    I am arriving at JFK with a Delta domestic flight at 6:05pm a friday afternoon, and I am supposed to leave to CDG at 6:20pm with an AF flight leaving from Terminal 1. Both flights are under the same ticket number. Is the connection time (75 minutes) sufficient, and what is the best way to connect (in particular, can I stay behind security checks)? Thanks.

     

    You cannot get to Terminal 1 inside security - you have to take the AirTrain to T1 and go through security. This is a difficult connection, but if you miss it, Air France does have a later flight to Paris.

     

    OK thanks ZAP, let's try this then.

     

  • Terminal 2 to Terminal 1

    I have a Turkish airline flight arriving JFK at 10:45 am, and a domestic Delta flight leaving at 1:39pm. I believe Turkish Airlines arrives in Terminal 2, whereas Delta departs at Terminal 1, plz check for me to re-confirm. I booked both flights separately, which means I need to go through immigration and collect my baggage. How do I go from Terminal 2 to Terminal 1? And also do you think this is enough time for me to make my Delta flight?

     

    You have the terminals backwards. You will arrive in Terminal 1 and depart from Terminal 2 or 4. They are connected outside security by the AirTrain.

    We are arrivng to JFK from MSP (3769)at 4:49pm tomorrow and have a flight on the same delta reservation that leaves at 5:41pm for Athens (413). Will we need to go through security etc again/ will that be enough time?

     

    No, you do not have to go through security. You just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if the flight from MSP is on-time.

    I'll land from Johannesburg flying South African Airways at 06:40am at T4 and I will depart to SFO with JetBlue at 09:00am from T5. Is there enough time to the connection?

     

    It's a difficult connection, but not impossible.

    Hi, going to land 6:45 on a Thursday evening DL 40141 from PIT. then need to get bags and go to another terminal and re-check the bags and catch a flight to Oslo Gardermoen on Norwegian air flight DY7002. Can you please tell me which terminal I will land in from Pittsburg and which terminal I will take off from to Norway and how to get between the terminal and how long it takes. THANKIS

     

    You will arrive in Terminal 4 and depart from Terminal 1. I recommend at LEAST 3 hours between flights as you will have to transfer your bags yourself and go through security in T1.

     

  • Coming in on Jetblue leaving on Delta

    I am flying in on Jetblue from Las Vegas arriving at 6:48pm and trying to leave on a Delta flight at 7:27. Which termianls would I need to transfer from and to? Will that be enough time so long as I'm checked in? I don't check bags, only carry-on.

     

    You will arrive in Terminal 5 and depart from Terminal 2 or 4. This is not a possible connection.

     

  • Emirates International to AA Domestic, 3h10min

    I have a 850am emirates arrival with a AA connection at 12noon (on a separate reservation). I thought 3 hours was enough (because I was told so 6 months ago). now with the TSA delays, I'm not sure. What do you think?

     

    I think it will be barely enough.

     

  • JetBlue to Austrian Air

    my daughter is landing at terminal 5 (JetBlue) and then transferring to terminal 1(Austrian Air) for her flight to Tel Aviv. 2 questions 1. What's the best way to transfer between terminals? 2. Can she check her bag all the way through? 3. Will she need to go through seep unity again in terminal 1? Thanks in advance for the hel!

     

    The only way between terminals is the AirTrain. If she purchased all her tickets on the same reservation then her bags will be checked through. If she purchased two separate reservations then she will need to claim her bags from JetBlue and re-check them with Austrian. Yes, she will have to go through security again in Terminal 1.

     

    Thank you!

     

  • Going from Jet Blue domestic to Delta International

    I guess, I will have to get my checked bags from Jet blue and then go to Delta international to fly to EU. I have 5 hours to do that. what is the easiest way to do that. I assume I have to go through TSA and customs too. Any secrets or info for me?

     

    You should be able to check your bag all the way through with JetBlue at the place of departure. If you flying international you also don't have to pay for your bag as you would flying domestically.

     

    Actually Jet blue told me that they will not transfer bags over to another airline when the reservation are made separately.

     

    Yes, Maria is incorrect - Jetblue and Delta do not have an interline agreement. You do not have to go through Customs. There is no US Customs when exiting the US. You will arrive in T5, claim your bags, take the AirTrain to T4, re-check your bags with Delta, and go through security. You have enough time.

     

    Thank you Zap

    I have a very short window to get from terminal 4 to terminal 1. What is the best way top get there? Air Train? Would I have to go through security again if I take air train? Walking? How long would it take?

     

    The Airtrain is the only way. Yes, you will have to go through security again.

     

  • Delta Domestic connect to Delta International

    How much time will I need to connect between Terminal 2 and Terminal 4 and still be at my gate 45 minutes before flight time. I'm scheduled to arrive JFK terminal 2 at 6:44 pm and depart internationally at 9:24pm. AND will I need to go through security in arriving at my departure terminal from my arrival terminal?

     

    You will not have to go through security at JFK. Delta runs a shuttle bus inside security between Terminal 2 and 4. You should have plenty of time.

    We are arriving at terminal 1 at 4pm from LA and our daughter at terminal 4 at 4.40pm from Vancover. Where is best to meet with a view to moving onto Manhattan from there by cab. Thank you

     

    Meet in the Terminal 4 baggage claim. Also, you will not arrive in Terminal 1 - no flights from LA arrive in Terminal 1.

    I am flying into JFK on a Delta Domestic Flight to make a connection for a Delta international flight to Rome. Have 90 mins to make connection. Do I have to go through security again and will I have enough time to make my flight?

     

    No you do not have to go through security again. You will arrive in Terminal 2 or 4 and depart from Terminal 4. if you arrive in Terminal 2 then Delta operates a shuttle bus inside security to Terminal 4.

    Yes, that should be enough time. Yes, you will arrive in Terminal 4 and depart from Terminal 5.
