Hi there,

I'm a UK citizen, looking at going from Montreal to JFK on DL3845 then JFK to BOS on DL 43. Layover is 1hr 27. With checked bags. Delta, tickets bought together. Think it's enough time? Thanks in advance.
I meant YUL (Montreal)!
Yes, that is enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Montreal so all you have to do in JFK is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I will be arriving jfk from Istanbul on Turkish airlines on Monday by 5:30 pm. I will thereafter be connecting a United airline flight by 7:25 at LaGuardia airport. Would I be able to get there in good time I have a checked baggage.
No, that's not possible. You will be arriving right in the middle of rush hour and have less than 2 hours. Completely impossible.
My wife is travelling with a 3 year old from Chicago to JFK and have to take a International flight to India. She has 2-50 lbs luggage. Can we use cart in transit (Airport Tram) between DOmestic & International terminal???
JFK does not have a "domestic terminal" and "international terminal". What airlines is she flying? Is it one reservation or two separate reservations?
Hi, I am thinking of booking my flight from Rochester to JFK with Delta and then booking another leg to London with Norwegian - between the flights I should have 3.5h gap. Since I would have only carry on bag could I do an internal terminal transfer (from 2 to 1)?
You will likely arrive in Terminal 4. There are no internal terminal transfers to Terminal 1. You have to take the AirTrain to Terminal 1 and go through security.
My son is flying from Phoenix to JFK right now. He has 90 minutes to then catch a flight to Paris. When he takes the tram from one terminal to the next will he have to go through security again?
Hi, I am arriving from Zurich at JFK and need to transit to my Delta flight to Las Vegas. I have 4 hours. are Delta domestic flights in a different terminal? Guess 4 hours is more than enough time?
Delta domestic flights use both Terminals 2 and 4. You have plenty of time.
hi, i am travelling from antigua on a jet blue flight which will reach by 20:50 at jfk terminal 5 and i have connecting flight from jfk terminal 4 at 23:00 to dubai. i have checked in luggage. will i get sufficient time for changing the flight within 2 hrs of time.
Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hi, do i need to go thru immigration at T5 before reaching T4? And from T5 to T4 only air train is the best way to move.
Hi,

We are flying from TLV to JFK hen JFK to PUJ all on DELTA under same ticket.
Do we have to pass immigration? Or is it Gate to Gate ?
Both flight are T4....
Yes, you have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk and go through security. If you are an Israeli or DR citizen you need a US Transit Visa.
Is it the same on the return leg PUJ-JFK-TLV ?
Yes, it is the same the other way.
I am dropping off an elderly passenger at Jet Blue then I need to get to the American Airlines Terminal Within 1 hour. Is it doable?
Yes, that is possible. The AirTrain connects all terminals outside security. You will be dropping the first person off in Terminal 5 then going to Terminal 8.
I am arriving in JFK from germany at 12:15pm on a tuesday with Singapore airline and have to catch my second flight on Delta ( not on the same reservations) at 2 pm to Reagan national. Is the one hour and forty minutes enough time to check in and catch the Delta flight?
No, that's not reasonably possible, especially with checked baggage.
