  • International DELTA to Domestic AA
    Mar 19, 2014
    My flight from Brazil arrive at JFK 06:11 AM by Delta and my next flight do Miami will be at 09:20 AM by American Airlines. Is there enough time? Tks


    Yes, that should be enough time, even if you have to transfer bags yourself (if you booked the two tickets separately you will have to transfer the bags yourself on the AIrTrain from T4 to T8).

    My friend arrives from Russia Terminal 1 at 1:20 pm. The connecting flight is Delta, Terminal 4 at 3.30 pm on a weekday. Enough time?


    Yes. that should be enough time if his first flight is on-time.


  • international arrival 2:50min lay over
    Mar 18, 2014
    I am arriving at JFK at 22:00 on April 5th (Terminal 4) from Bogotá, Colombia and have a flight connection. My next flight will be departing at 00:50 to Seoul from terminal 1. Is that time enoguh to reach my next flight on time?. How easy is to move from terminal 1 to terminal 4? Thank you


    It should be enough time. All Terminals are connected outside security by the AirTrain/Air Terminals Train. You will need approximately 1 hour to get through immigration and customs and 45 minutes to get to T1 and through security. So there's not much time for delays but you should have enough time.


  • Do i have enough time?
    Mar 14, 2014
    I will arrive from fort lauderdale to jfk on jet blue at terminal 5 and will have 1 hr and 38 min as a layover to my next flight on egyptair at terminal 4 would i have enough time to catch the flight and do they send my luggage to the final destination or i will have to pick them up? My flight is on 24 march


    JetBlue and Egyptair do have an interline agreement, so if you bought your tickets together JetBlue should be able to check your bags through to Egyptair. If they can't I don't think you will have enough time to claim them and get them to the Egyptair counter before their bag cutoff.


  • transit time
    Mar 14, 2014
    I will be landing at terminal 4 ELAL at 15:20/ How long would you expect it to take to go through immigration and customs (American citizen) wthout luggage? Have times significantly changed since the new passport kiosks have been added? How long to get to terminal 8 and go through security and get to American Airlines?


    It should take maybe 30 minutes to get through immigration. It will take you maybe another 15 to get to T8, then however long security takes (anywhere between 5 and 30 minutes).

    I will arrive at JFK T1 from LAP at 4.15pm and depart to FCO T1 at 6pm is it enough time?


    LAP is La Paz, Mexico, which does not have flights to JFK. Where are you actually arriving from? (La Paz, Bolivia also does not have flights to JFK). Is your arrival into JFK domestic or international?


    Sorry We not arrive from LAP but from MEX....


    Yes, that should be enough time, but if there are any delays you may have trouble meeting the bag cutoff with Alitalia if you have to transfer bags yourself. However, Aeromexico should be able to tag your bags through to Rome in La Paz since both airlines are in SkyTeam.


  • immigration and custom times
    Mar 13, 2014
    What is the average time it takes for a US citizen with only carry on luggage to clear immigration and customs? Arriving June 17th at 5 PM


    It also depends what Terminal, but I would budget somewhere between 30 and 45 minutes.


  • International arrival w/ 90 min. Lay over
    Mar 13, 2014
    Is 90 min long enough btw flights to get through customs? Arriving on Delta from Milan and connecting to SFO (also a Delta flight). We will not have checked baggage, and I believe both flights are terminal 2. Thanks!


    Yes, that should be enough time but doesn't leave much room for delays. Actually, both of your flights will be in Terminal 4.


  • connecting times for international travelers
    Mar 13, 2014
    I have an international flight landing at 15:20 at terminal 4 and a connecting flight on American leaving at 17:55 terminal 8. My return flights have me arriving at terminal 8 at 16:45 and departing on an international flight at 19:00/ Is this sufficient time?


    It should be enough time, even if you have to transfer bags yourself, as long as there are no delays.


  • transfer between terminals 5 and 7
    Mar 11, 2014
    What, please, is the quickest way to get from terminal 5 to terminal 7? I have about a 2-hour window early in the morning (6-ish); I thought there would be plenty of time but some of the other comments about time needed are unnerving!


    Since all Terminal 5 arrivals are domestic you should have enough time. The only way between the two terminals is the AirTrain/Air Terminals Train which runs outside security.


  • Do I have enough time??
    Mar 10, 2014
    I am arriving at JFK from Chicago at 12:40pm on April 20th at terminal 2. I have a connecting flight to Moscow at 2:20pm out of terminal 1. Is 1hr and 40 min enough time!?


    Delta should be able to check your bags through in Chicago, so if your first flight is on-time you should be OK, but if there's any delays you'll be in trouble.


  • Will I have enough time for a connection?
    Mar 8, 2014
    I arrive on a Sunday on Swiss Air flight 14 from Zurich at 3:50 pm, presumably in Terminal 4. There is a jet blue flight I would like to take at 5:30 pm in Terminal 5. Will I have enough time? Thank you


    It doesn't leave enough time in my opinion, since you would probably have to transfer the bags yourself and get them checked-in at JetBlue's counter before the bag cut-off. Maybe if you didn't have checked baggage it would be doable.


  • Is enough time for connection.
    Mar 6, 2014
    We will arrive at JFK from JAX (t5) with JetBlue and depart to Dubai with Emirates (t4). Is 1 hour and 30 min enough?


    Yes, if both of you bought your tickets on one reservation your bags will be transferred automatically and all you have to do is take the Airtrain from T5 to T4 and go through security.


  • Dublin-JFK T8-LA
    Mar 4, 2014
    Hi. I'm flying with AA to LA via T8. As I will preclear customs at Dublin how do I get from the arrivals level up to the departure gates without having to go through customs again. Thank you.


    Since you pre-clear immigration, you won't have to go through to the arrivals level, you will come out the door on the departure level of the terminal, like a domestic flight would.
