I'm flying from the UK with American Airlines, flight AA6142 and connecting on to American Airlines AA83 flight to Auckland with a touch down in LA. Do i have to collect my luggage at JFK airport or will it go straight through to Auckland?
Yes, in JFK you will arrive in Terminal 7, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then take the AirTrain to Terminal 8, go through security and to your departure gate. Note that for flight 83, you will also have to change planes in Los Angeles (but that's all you have to do there).
Hi, I fly in to JFK Terminal 4 with Delta operated by KLM and need to catch my connection flight to Amsterdam also departing from Terminal 4 with Delta operated by KLM, will I need to go through border control, pick up my bag and check in again? I have 90 min between flights, will it be enough? The ticket was bought at the same time as a package. Thanks
Sorry I forgot write Im flying in from Mexico City. THX
Your flight from Mexico City will be operated by Delta. Yes, you have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. You have barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Ok thanks. I have a Visa Wavier and it usually takes me half an hour to get through the immigration control, I guess I will have to run between planes
Do i need to pass customs/passport control again for a domestic flight from Boston? I notice i am landing at B 37 and my partner is arriving in the same terminal at B32 (from Amsterdam). This suggests we both have to go through passport control. Thanks. Michael
There is no US Customs when traveling on a domestic flight. At US Airports some gates are set up to handle both international and domestic flights.
Hi, Coming on an intl delta flight to terminal 4 and connecting to a delta flight to chicago at terminal 2. Unfamiliar with the process, can u tell me what the steps are ? Thank you.
Flights to Chicago also depart from Terminal 4. You will 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.
