  • Terminal 8 to Terminal 4
    Jun 2, 2016
    1
    I have one reservation with AA fluid no from Norfolk to Calgary with a layover at JFK. I land at terminal 8 and leave from terminal 4 with three hour layover. Will my bags be passed through so I don't need to,check a second time? Also, do I have to clear security again at JFK when I go to Terminal 4 for e second leg of my flight? Thanks.

     

    What airline are you flying out of Terminal 4? AA doesn't use Terminal 4. If you do have to change terminals, you will have to go through security.

     

  • 75 minute connection on intl arrival at JFK with Global Entry

    Flying nonstop from Athens to JFK on July 3 and looking at an illegal 75 minute connection on a separate itinerary. Both flights on Delta -- Athens flight arrives at 4:28 and connecting flight leaves at 5:44. II assume different terminals. I'm flying at the front of the plane, have only a carry-on and I have Global Entry. Can I make it? Thanks!

     

    With Global entry you have a chance. Also, you could get lucky and both flights could be in Terminal 4

    I have a flight from Mco to ACC stoping at JFK with a two hour layover. They are the same reservation and same terminal. I do have some checked luggage. Do I need to go and claim it? Do in need to go to the desk to get my next boarding pass? Do I need to through security again to get to terminal 4 if I need to claim the bags? Or can I just go to the next gate after I get off the plane?

     

    You don't have to do anything with your bags. You will get both boarding passes in Orlando. You don't have to go through security.

     

  • Stopover at JFK

    Hi! I will be flying from Chicago O'hare with a stopover at JFK before flying to Iceland. The flight from Chicago to JFK is on JetBlue Airways and arrives at noon. The flight to Iceland is on Icelandair and leaves at 2:10pm. Do you think I will have any problems? Will I need to go through security again? Do you have any tips? Thanks!

     

    Is it the same reservation? If not, then you need to go to baggage claim and recheck and bags if it was checked/went under the plane originally and go through security. Is the flight to Iceland in the same terminal when your going to go to JFK? If not, then you have to use the train to get to that terminal. If the flight is on separate reservations, then you might be good but security might hold you up. Though, if you flight is delayed by over an hour or so, it might make it a bit difficult. Anyway, if your flight is in the same terminal when you arrive at JFK and same reservation, you should be good.

     

    Also, if your flight is in different terminals, then you need to go through security again.

     

  • Connecting Delta JFK to Tel Aviv

    I will be flying on Delta from Nashville to Detroit then JFK. From JFK I will travel to Tel Aviv. I have a 2 hour layover at JFK. Will that be enough time to make my connection? Will I have to clear customs going to Israel at JFK again or will I do this when I leave Nashville? Appreciate any isight.

     

    Yes, that is enough time. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

     

  • 2hr13min layover v 4hr33min layover to clear custom on holiday Friday

    Sorry I accidentally posted this on layover ideas which I think is more what to do while you wait. US Citizen will arrive on Delta from Scotland and transfer to Delta flight to Atlanta on a holiday Friday afternoon with bags checked through to Atlanta (all flights are same reservation). Does Delta/Edinburgh Scotland pre-clear or will I need to claim and recheck? Is 2 hours and 13 minutes sufficient time to clear customs and do what is required for bags? I would prefer the shorter (2hr13min vs 4 hr33min) layover but do not want to risk missing flight (with it being a holiday, I'm not sure there will be seats on the later flight). Thank you. This is a great site.

     

  • Connecting from Jet Blue to Delta

    I am landing on a domestic JetBlue flight at JFK at Terminal 5 at 4:48PM. I have a Delta internatioinal flight in Terminal 2 or 4 at 6:27PM. I will have carry-on baggage. Will I need to go through security again? If so, will I have enough time to make this change.

     

    Your Delta flight will depart from Terminal 4. You will have to go through security again. You barely have enough time if everything goes perfectly.

     

  • 1.5 hours to make connecting flight with only carry on luggage.

    I have a domestic Jetblue flight (terminal 5) landing at 930pm on a Thursday night and my connecting flight departs at 1055pm from Terminal 7. If I have just a carry on and my jetblue flight is on time is this going to be enough time? Thanks in advance.

     

    With carry-on only it's not impossible, but it's still difficult.

    Hi, I will be arriving at JFK with Delta at 2:30 and flying with Emirates at 4:30. Do I have time to collect my luggage, recheck them in and go through the security again? Both flights are at terminal 4. Thanks

     

    That should be just enough time if the Delta flight is on-time and your bags come out quickly.

    My 16 year old daughter is flying via Delta from TPA to JFK arriving 6:23pm then JFK to Prague leaving 8:06. Does she have enough time to do the terminal change, and is it terminal 2 to terminal 4? Also, will she have to go through security again?

     

    Delta runs a shuttle bus inside security from Terminal 2 to Terminal 4. She has enough time if the flight from Tampa is on-time.

     

  • is it enough time for connection SEA to KBP via JFK?

    hello, I want to fly with luggage from SEA to JFK by JetBlue (arrival to terminal 5 at 22:00) where should transfer to Terminal 7 to fly to KBP by UIA at 00:30, so connection is 2:30 hours. looks that it will be separate ticket. Questions are - is it enough time to transfer with such connection ? - can luggage be registered to final destination (Kiev) or it should be collected at JFK and checked-in one more time at departure terminal ? Thank you in advance.

     

    You would have to claim your bags in T5 and take them to T7 to re-check them. That's barely enough time if the flight from Seattle is on-time.

    Yes, you will arrive in Terminal 5, claim your bags, take them with you on the airtrain to Terminal 4, re-check them with Delta, and go through security.

    I fly in to JFK at 2:15 on a Emirates flight comming from South Africa through Dubai, I am suppose to fly out at 4:30 on an American Airlines flight. Is 2 hours enough time to get through customs and from terminal 4 to terminal 8 or so I have to rearrange my flights? These are two separate reservations.

     

    That will be very difficult.

     

  • Landing terminal 5 Jet blue and departing from terminal 5 jet blue

    Am landing at terminal 5 from jet blue at 2:30 pm and departing from terminal 5 with jet blue at 4:00 pm. Do I need to go through immigration and customs ? Do I have enough time to catch my next flight with 1 hour 30 min layover ? Thanks

     

    WHere are you coming from and where are you going to? I can't answer your question with the information you provided.

     

    I am coming from Port Au Prince Haiti by jet Blue, arriving in JFK at 2:30 PM and taking the 4:00 pm flight Jet Blue to San Francisco. Thanks

     

    Yes, 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. This is a fairly difficult connection but not impossible if everything goes smoothly.

     

  • Connecting flight to St. Lucia

    We will be flying from Boston to JFK and will have 1hr and 55 minutes to go thru customs at JFK to St. Lucia. Will that be enough time?

     

    There is no US Customs when exiting the US. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
