  • AA connecting flights
    Jan 7, 2013
    2
    I am traveling with a group of students from Los Angeles to JFK. We get in at 6:05pm and have a flight from JFK to London at 7:10pm. Both flights are on American Airlines. My question is does this hour layover give us enough time to make our connecting flight? Also, do all American Airlines flights (domestic and International) arrive and depart from the same terminal? Any information would be helpful. Thanks

     

    At JFK Terminal 8 serves mostly American Airlines; it has Concouse B, gates 1 through 16 and Concourse C, gates 31-47. Your boarding pass & overhead screens in the terminal will indicate connecting gate. You have plenty of time.

     

    arriving on AA from San Juan. How much time do I need for customs on a Fri. evening before I can book an AA flite to Boston?

     

  • Terminal 2 to Terminal 4

    My daughter is flying into terminal 2 (Delta) then flying out of Terminal 4 (Tam Airline) to Brazil. How do you get from Terminal 2 to Terminal 4.

     

    On arrival at JFK, at T2 - follow signs to the Airline Train connecting all terminals every 8 mins on average. The train serves the unsecured areas - therefore, on arrival at T4 she needs to go through security check before proceeding to her connecting gate.

     

    She needs to find out from Delta if they transfer her bags to TAM - if not, she need on arrival at T2 go down to the baggage claim and take her bag along to T4, checking it in there with TAM. On arrival at JFK, at T2 - follow signs to the Airline Train connecting all terminals every 8 mins on average. The train serves the unsecured areas - therefore, on arrival at T4 she needs to go through security check before proceeding to her connecting gate.

    My daughter will arrive Jetblue Terminal 5 and depart international Terminal 1. If he bags are checked through or will be transferred, can she go from 5 to 1 without leaving secure area? Or will she need to exit Terminal 5, (possible collect bag), take AirTrain to Terminal 1, check in and go through security? If so, where do we find information about how/where to do this?

     

    JFK finally renamed the train serving only the terminals as 'Airline Terminals Train' (marked on JFK's maps in yellow, and running from T1 to T8, T7, T5, T4 & T2/3) - (at each such stop you can connect to the Airtrain). She needs to find out if JetBlue will transfer bags to connecting airline (if different) - if not she needs on arrival at JFK go down to the baggage claim, get her bag and take it to T1, and check it in there. Either way, she should follow the airline train sign and board the train which runs every 8 mins on average, but runs in the unsecured areas of the terminals. At T1 she needs to go through security check before proceeding ot her gate.

    Delta to JFK at 5.30pm to international flight at 7.05pm to Moscow. Do you still need claim baguage and go again true custom. Is 1 hour enough time to get thru to make fly. Help. Thanks

     

    You need to find out from Delta if they transfer your bags at JFK to your connecting Aeroflot flight - if not, you need on arrival at JFK go down to the baggage claim and pick up your bag, then take it along on the 'Airline Terminals Train' serving all terminals. Note that Delta uses Terminals 2, 3 & 4 Aeroflot uses Terminal 1. At Terminal 1 you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate. You have enough time.

     

    thank you

    what is th easist route from Term5 to Term4?

     

    On arrival at JFK at T5, follow signs to the Airtrain (also referred to now as Airline Terminals Train, which makes its round about every 88 mins (but in the unsecured areas of the terminals). Your next stop will be Terminal 4 where you should proceed to the security check before going on to your connecting gate. (see http://www.panynj.gov/airports/jfk-airport-map.html)- yellow line.

    I have a flight on delta to Tel Aviv. Which terminal houses this Delta flight?

     

    While Delta uses Terminals 2, 3 & 4 (T2 for domestic flights only), it could depart from T3 (gates 1-18) or from the International Terminal with Concourses A (gates A2-7) and B (gates 20-30). Your ticket should indicate which terminal you will need.

    What is the best way to get from Terminal 5 to Terminal 3 at JFK airport? I have 1 hour between connecting flights.

     

    The Airtrain at JFK connects all terminals in the unsecured areas and runs on average every 8 mins. At T3 you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate.

    do I have to take the shuttle to get from terminal 8 to 4. if so how long does it takes, I have only 1 hrs to get to my connection.

     

    At JFK, the Airtrain runs between all terminals, on average every 8 mins, and takes minutes between terminals. However, on arrival at Terminal 4 you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate.

     

  • Where is Terminal 3 - B20?

    I have a connection that looks like it arrives at Terminal 3- Gate 23, but the connection which is only 40 minutes is at Terminal 3- Gate B20..Is this nearby because I looked online and it looks like it is Terminal 4, B20. Can anyone confirm or provide more details?

     

    Terminal 3 at JFK has presently gates 1 to 18 used by Delta, & Delta Connection. To get from T3 to T4, take the AirTrain which runs on average every 8 mins - however, you need to go through security check at T4 whose Departure level opens up to the Concourse level, with Concourse A and gates A2-7, and Concourse B with gates B20-30.

    i have an hour and a half to make connecting flight to ireland.will i make it.

     

    That depends on (a) if your first airline transfers bags to your second airline (if not, you need to claim your bags and take them to your connecting terminal. I suggest you open www.ifly.com/jfk and click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS, then scroll down to the detailed text.

     

  • Lockers for carry-on bag

    Hello, I have a connection of 12 hours in New York (JFK, landing and departure from terminal 3). I was wondering if anybody knows if there are lockers that I can leave my carry-on bag so I don't need to carry it with me in New York. Thanks in advance!

     

    JFK has no lockers. If you use 2 different airlines, check if first airline will transfer bags to second one. If not, you could claim your bag at the arrivals level, go to the departures level and check it in at your connecting airline counter.

  • Tel Aviv to JFK to Barbados (Bridgetown)

    I am taking an El Al flight to JFK that gets into Terminal 4 and then I will take another international flight to Bridgetown on American Airlines that leaves from Terminal 8. Will I (an American citizen) or my boyfriend (an Israeli citizen) have to go through customs while we are in JFK? How do we make sure our bags go all the way through?

     

    All international arrivals at US airports, regardless of citizenship, need to go through passport control, pick up bags, go through customs clearance (where indicated) and - if continuing journey - re-check-in bags. You need to find out if El Al will transfer bags to AA connecting flight - if not, you need, after customs clearance, take your bag along and check it in at T8's Departure Level, at the AA counter. In either case you will transfer via Airtrain serving all terminals and coming around every 8 mins on average. The Airtrain (follow signs) serves only pre-security areas - at T8 you need to go through security check before proceeding to your gate.

     

    This is true even if we are only landing in JFK to switch to another international flight out of the United States?

     

    Yes, everybody coming into the US on an international flight has to clear immigration & customs
