My Qatar airways flight gets in at 2:15 pm. Will I have sufficient time to catch a delta flight at 3:55?
Realistically no that is not enough time.
Hi,

My flight with jetblue (terminal 5) to CHARLESTON 1373 has been pushed forward from 4.53 pm -> 3.50 PM.
I am arriving with Delta Airlines from Brussel, KL 6141, (maybe to terminal 4) arrival 1.18 PM

Will 2.5 hours be enough for the transfer ect.?

Thanks!

Per
Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Thanks! They also promissed me to reschedule us without additional costs if we dont make it.
We are flying today from ATL to JFK on Delta. We are connecting to a Delta flight to Shannon, Ireland. Do we need to reclaim our baggage at JFK and check back in or will it be checked through to Shannon from ATL. How far are the international gates from the domestic? We have a five-hour layover.
There are no "international gates" and "domestic gates". Delta runs a shuttle inside security between T2 and T4 if you arrive in T2.
So I'm flying for the first time to Chicago alone.. I bought a direct flight from London Heathrow to Chicago Ohare, unfortunately Virgin Atlantic have stopped doing direct flights. So they offered me connecting flights. I will be flying with Virgin Atlantic to JFK, then flying from JFK to Ohare with Delta. I'm not too sure what to expect. I know they won't be transferring my luggage from one flight to another, so what I'm wondering is where do I pick my bags up from? And where do I drop them off? I basically need a step-by-step guide from when I get off the plane at JFK till when I board the Delta plane to Ohare, because I have no idea what to do.. I have so many questions :(
You will 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 all in Terminal 4.
Hi,
My flight AGP-JFK arrives 4:50 PM
Connecting flight JFK-MSP departs at 6:20PM
I had to but tickets separately, although they are both Delta they say they won't guarantee a connection if I miss my flight (separate confirmation numbers).
I checked flight history, looks like flight arrives normally at Gate C61 and MSP flight leaves from gates around B30.
Dumb question but I don't know if those gates are different concourses in the same terminal or separate terminals...?
I'll just have a carry-on so no waiting for baggage in JFK.
Is 90 mins enough time?

Thanks-
They are in different terminals. 90 minutes is just enough time if everything goes perfectly.
Thanks for the quick reply. Getting from T2 to T4 - it looks like you have to go back thru security? On the Delta Map it shows a security checkpoint after taking shuttle to B18. I see lots of forums but people contradicting each other- some say the Delta air shuttle operates airside and you don't have to go thru TSA but others say after intl arrival you always have to go back thru. Last time I connected in JFK, after customs I ended up landside and had to go thru TSA, any way avoiding going back thru security after intl arrival?

The shuttle bus operates airside. The AirTrain operates landside. You will have to go through security regardless after you clear US Customs because once you do, you will be outside security.
HI there - I have a flight out of BOS at 5:05 putting me in JFK at 6:33 then departing from JFK to Barcelona at 8:05 all through Delta Airlines - it looks like I arrive and depart from terminal 4 - will this be enough time for me to make the connection?
Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do in JFK is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

Do you have a question?
I want to know if the layover at JFK is enough time. Thank you
Yes, that is plenty of time.
Hello ZAP and Co.,

We would arrive at Terminal 4 from Amsterdam with KLM at 13:17.
Our flight to Nassau with Jetblue would depart at 16:30.

Entering the States (as non U.S. citizens), picking up the luggage, trasnfering to Terminal 5 (in or out, the faster the better) checking in on the Jetblue flight - how can we manage it? Is it possible?

Thanks in advance.

Best,
j.e.d.

What do you recommend for the terminal change, walking, train, anything else?
Arriving on Hawaiian Air flight and then transferring to a Delta commuter flight-arriving terminal 5 and departing terminal 4-how do I get from terminal 5 to 4?
All terminals are connected outside security by the AirTrain.
