  • Connections to DKR - JFK - YUL
    Mar 19, 2017
    My aunt is arriving from an international flight to JFK and she will have 1h30 minutes to transfer to another international flight. Both her flights are in terminal 4. Is it possible to make the connections in time? Thank you


    It's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.


  • Getting from terminal 5 to terminal 2 in 50 minutes - is it possible?
    Mar 16, 2017
    Hi. I will be arriving tomorrow at 14.40 terminal 5 with Aer Lingus - I will have pre-clearance. have booked a delta flight leaving from terminal 2 - gate C68 leaving at 3.30pm - hope to check bags thru all the way - what is the quickest way from terminal 5 to terminal 2 and will I make it in 50 minutes?


    Aer Lingus won't check your bags through to Delta, so you won't make it.

  • Connection to BOS to JFK to AUH
    Mar 15, 2017
    Travelling to Abu Dabai from Boston thru JFK on the same reservation thru Eithad: - Do I need to recheck bags from BOS before taking off to Abu Dabai? - Do I need to go back to the Etihad desk to get my tickets outgoing from JFK or will I be able to get tickets for all my legs at the AA desk in Boston? On my way back, similar questions: - When returning from Abu Dabai, will I need to recheck my bags to get from JFK to BOS?


    You won't need to re-check your bags in JFK. They should be able to issue both boarding passes in Boston. On the way back you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Abu Dhabi, so you again won't have to do anything with your bags in JFK.

    Hi - we arrive Mar 17 9am on Delta Terminal 4. Flight to London on AA departs 1120am Terminal 8. Is that enough time to catch the London flight? Will I have to claim my luggage at Term 4 and recheck it at Terminal 8? Thanks!


    Yes, you will have to claim your luggage from Delta in Terminal 4 and take it with you to AA in Terminal 8 and re-check it then go through security. That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.

    Hi, Is 2 hours and 30 minutes enough for transfer arriving from Europe (Delta) at 1 pm. to Savannah (jetBlue) with checked baggage?


    That's barely possible if everything goes perfectly. You will have to transfer your bags from T4 to T5 yourself.


  • Chicago-JFK-PRAGUE

    I land at JFK from Chicago with an 1h 25 min connection before I need to make my Delta International flight- will I have enough time?


    Yes, all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 4. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.


    OK I am flying delta from Chicago to JFK and then Delta again to prague so the 1hr 25 min is substantial?


  • 90 minutes enough
    Mar 13, 2017
    My daughter is arriving @JFK in May from Madrid with only 90 min. between flights to get to Indianapolis. It is all one ticket on American (British airways out of Madrid, operated by American) She will have a checked bag. Can this work? There aren't a lot of options to get to Indy...


    That is just enough time if the flight from Madrid is on-time. Both flights will be in Terminal 8. She will go through US Immigration, claim her bags, go through US Customs, re-check her bags at the re-check desk and go through security and to her departure gate.


  • Enough time to transfer planes
    Mar 16, 2017
    I'm flying in domestic to JFK on Delta term 4 and only have 1 hour 35 min layover to make it to KLM term 1 flight to Rome. We can either check bags or not. Same booking, just not the same airline. I'm starting to worry we won't make it and the flights keep getting slightly adjusted to either more or less time. Not flying until Sept 2017....


    Your flight to Rome will be operated by Alitalia, not KLM. You will have to take the AirTrain to Terminal 1 and go through security. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.


    thanks for your help! I'm hoping everything goes smoothly :-)


  • connecting from jet blue to international Delta flt to Madrid
    Mar 13, 2017
    How long will it take me to get from a Jet Blue arrival at JFK to a Delta international flight to Madrid?


    You need at least 2.5 hours if you have checked bags since you will have to transfer them yourself.


  • T4 to T1 timings
    Mar 13, 2017
    I arrive in JFY T4 at 14.03 and need to get a second flight from T1 (Aeroflot) at 15.25. I only have hand luggage. Will that be enough time to get across terminals and re do security at T1?


    That will be very difficult, but is not impossible. However, if you are not able to check in online for your Aeroflot flight you will have to worry about missing the check-in cutoff for Aeroflot.


    I will be able to check-in online for Aeroflot.


    I will be able to check-in online for Aeroflot.


    Then it's not impossible but still quite risky.


  • JFK International to Domestic - Separate Ticket
    Mar 13, 2017
    I am arriving JFK on Singapore Airlines at 12 PM and I will have a connecting flight on Delta to SYR at 4:55 pm. I am wondering if there is a Delta check-in counter right outside the customs at T4? Or I have to re-check baggage at the departure level of T4?


    You will have to take your bags up to the departure level.

    I am flying into JFK on American Airlines and I need to get to Delta for my next flight. I only have two hours. Is this enough time?


    Is your first flight domestic or International? Do you have checked bags? Where are you flying from and to?


    My first flight is international coming from Rome. Yes I will have one checked bag. I'm flying to Colorado Springs via Delta once I get to JFK.


    That will be very difficult. you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, take the AirTrain to Terminal 2 or 4, re-check your bags with Delta, and go through security.


  • Domestic to international

    My flight from Rochester ny will arrive at 7:03am at terminal 5. My intl flight from ny is at 10am. Do I have enough time to check in Cathay pacific at terminal 8? How long will it take to transfer from T5 to T8?


    Yes, that should be enough time. Actually getting between terminals will only take you about 10-15 minutes on the AirTrain.


  • Bos to JFK, JFK to aua
    Mar 12, 2017
    In may our flight leaves bos at 6 and arrives at JFK at 7:24, and our flight from JFK leaves at 8:35. We are flying delta. Is this enough time to deboard, transfer to the next gate and reboard? Will my luggage make the flight? It is a single reservation. Will we need to go through security again?


    Yes, that is enough time. You won't have to go through security again. If you arrive in Terminal 2 and depart from Terminal 4, Delta runs a shuttle between them inside security.
