  • T5->T4 connection

    Hi, My friend and I are booked to fly from Orlando to New York on Jetblue and Onwards to Abu Dhabi and Mumbai on Etihad. Our JetBlue flight arrives in T5 and our Etihad flight departs from T4. We will be flying in December, and have a connecting time of 1h44 minutes in JFK. Do you think we can make it?

     

    Yes, you should be able to make it if your first flight is on-time. If you purchased tickets together your bags will be checked through to Mumbai in Orlando. In JFK you will just have to take the airtrain from T5 to T4 and go through security.

     

  • Air Canada arriving T7 4:35pm, Alitalia departing T1 8:35pm

    Hello, I am flying from Toronto, Canada landing in JFK in a Air Canada flight landing in T7 at 4:35pm and I'll need to catch a connecting Alitalia flight in T1, does that mean I have to gather my luggage after I got off the Air Can flight, go through custom, then re-checkin at the Alitalia counter after? Will I have enough time? My flights are in November if that matters.... tks in advanced

     

    YOu will pre-clear US Immigration in Toronto. Your arrival into JFK will be like a domestic flight. If you bought your tickets separately you will have to claim them and take them with you on the airtrain from T7 to T1 to check with Alitalia, but if you purchased them together they should be checked through to Italy for you in Toronto and you won't have to claim them in JFK.

     

  • Terminal 4 to Terminal 1 with check-in

    HI. I am coming in to JFK on Virgin America at 3:50 pm in terminal 4. I have to pick up my luggage and go to terminal 1 to catch my Royal Moroc Airlines flight at 5:45pm. I believe I will have to bring my luggage and check in at the counter with my bag. Can I make it? My flight is in November. I am actually coming in from Hawaii on Hawaiian Airlines which lands in LA and then I get on their partner plane "Virgin America". Is there anyway to get Hawaiian to transfer my bag for me to Moroc Airlines? Bottom line, can I make it?

     

    No, Virgin American and Royal Air Moroc do not have an interline agreement so they will not transfer your bag. You should have enough time if your flight to NY is on-time but you'll have trouble if it's late.

    We are traveling from Rome on Delta Flight 477 to JFK and connecting to Delta Flight 417 to Los Angeles. Flights are on the same ticket. Do we go thru customs at JFK and check back in for the domestic flight?. I believe we come at Terminal 1 and depart terminal 4. What is the easiest way to get from Terminal to Terminal.

     

    You will both arrive in and depart from Terminal 4. You will go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, go through US Customs, re-check your baggage with Delta, then go up to the departure level and through security and to your departure gate.

    By the way, forgot to add that we will be receiving our onwards boarding pass at Orlando itself, and our bags will be checked in all the way through to Mumbai

    hello i have a flight from Paris to New York and a connection to new Orléans . I Will arrive in T1 and i have to go to T2. I have 2 hours and i would like to Know if I have to go through customs or not (i have to go outside from t1 and go through customs or is it possible to stay inside terminal Hub ???? (T1 to T2) many thanks for your reply

     

    You will arrive in T1, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then you have to take the AirTrain from T1 to T2 and go through security and to your departure gate. You must go through US Customs and Immigration at your first landing point within the US.

  • T8 to T4 possible in 2 hours?

    I am being issued a ticket for a Friday morning with 2-hour time between flights. I will arrive in T8 on American and depart from T4 on Etihad. It is a codeshare flight, so I should have boarding passes in hand. Need to mention that I will be traveling with 2 infants and may need to wait at the gate to collect my strollers that I will be gate-checking. Can somebody with knowledge confirm if 2 hours is a sufficient transit time on a Friday morning?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time, especially if your American flight is Domestic.

     

    ZAP - Thanks for the assurance. Yes, the American flight is domestic. I will also try to remember and post my experience later so it helps others.

     

  • Picking up Luggage and going to a connecting flight

    I have a flight from ATL to JFK, and then I'm taking a international flight (booked as a separate itinerary). I probably won't be able to check my luggage for the whole trip. So do I have to go all the way out of the JFK airport in order to get to baggage claim, and then to re-check in by the international section? What's the quickest way to do this? (I have never been in JFK airport before, so I do not know the setup.)

     

    Please look at the map. I can help you more if you let me know what airlines you're flying.

    Can we make it? Arriving from NAS with Delta at 20:51 and having the flight to Paris (AirFrance) at 23:20. We need to get thru border check and customs... but can we do it on time ? also, considering that tickets are separate can we check in directly luggage with delta in order to avoid luggage reclaim and recheck ? Than you

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration in Nassau. Delta does not check through baggage when you purchase separate tickets. You will have to claim it and take it to Air France to re-check. you should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

    Hi All, I am travelling from Dubai to Orlando via JFK. I have only 2 hours lay over in JFK to connect JetBlue flight from JFK to Orlando. My Dubal to JFK flight arrives on Terminal 4. I have to go to terminal 5 to catch Jetblue flight. Do we have any quick line for to clear port of entry in JFK for visitiors?

     

    You will not need a "quick line" you have plenty of time.

     

    Do we have option of quick line in JFK?

     

    There is no such line anyway.

     

  • Enough layover tine for international flight

    I am arriving from Burlington, VT at 7:59pm and have a flight to London leaving at 9:50pm; a layover of 1 hr 51 minutes. Arriving flight is Jetblue; departing flight is British Airways; no checked luggage. Is the 1hr51min enough time to make my connection.

     

    It should be if your first flight is on-time. You will have to take the AirTrain from Terminal 5 to Terminal 7, get your BA Boarding pass if you don't already have it, and go through security.

    I'm arriving on friday to T8 15:50 from HEL and taking a 17:29 flight to PWM from T5. Only carry-on luggage. Tickets are bought separately. Can I make it?

     

    Yes, but it doesn't leave much room for and possible delays.

     

    Thank You for the quick response. I forgot to mention that I'm a Finnish resident. Will that make a difference? And if I miss that second flight, will I get my money back?

     

    Finnish citicen, I mean :)

     

    Yes, it makes a difference, your immigration line will be longer. Since you booked separate reservations, JetBlue is not obligated to refund any money or even rebook you if your miss your first flight.

    Hi, I am looking at tickets now which come from Paris (CDG) to JFK, and with connecting flight to LAX and I only have two hours between the flights, is that enough? Or should I have more time when coming from Europe? It's Air France from Paris and Delta to LAX

     

    2 hours should be enough time.

     

  • International to Domestic Transfer at JFK
    Sep 6, 2014

    Flight segments from Billund, Denmark to Amsterdam to JFK for Danish traveler on KLM/Delta Airlines. Connection to domestic Delta flight from JFK to Austin, Texas. Two hour connection time in New York. Possibly carry-on luggage only I understand clearing immigration, collecting any checked luggage, passing customs, and rechecking baggage. I am also aware of Fast-Pass at customs if the connection time is tight. The question is whether I clear customs and then use the shuttle between T2-T4, or vice versa, and avoid additional security lines. Again, this is for an international to domestic connection. Thank you for any info.

     

    You can go through Security in T4 after clearing customs and rechecking your bags and then take the shuttle to T2 or you can take the AirTrain to T2 after you re-check your bags and go through security there. There's no way to avoid having to go through security again in JFK.
