  • Terminal 8 to Terminal 5 JFK
    Dec 23, 2015
    1
    In march I have a trip planned from Qatar to Las Vegas but I have a transit flight via JFK. I have from 15.15 to 17.41 to get from T8 to T5. I have been informed by the airline that I will not have to collect my luggage or get a new ticket. Will I have to pass through security. Do I have enough time to catch my transit flight? Your feedback is much appreciated.

     

    The airline is incorrect. You will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, take the AirTrain to T5 and go through security. You should have plenty of time.

    Have separate itinerary for domestic leg. Flying Jetblue SFO-JFK, and Emirates JFK-MXP. Will I have to do collect baggage and recheck-in for flight to MXP? On the way back, same steps + immigration?

     

    You can ask the JetBlue agent in SFO to check your bag to Milan by showing your Emirates confirmation, but they are not obligated to. If they do check your bag to MXP, all you have to do in JFK is take the AirTrain from T5 to T4, get your Emirates boarding pass if you don't already have it, and go through security. On your way back you will arrive in T4, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, take your bags with you on the AirTrain to T5 and re-check them with JetBlue and go through security.

     

    Any idea how long it will take at JFK upon arrival from Milan ? How are the lines for immigration?

    Myself and a group of people will be returning from a missions trip in Haiti and we are flying into JFK on an American Airlines flight, connecting through to another American Airlines flight to Seattle. Will 90 minutes be enough time?

     

    That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Arriving T8 at 1715 on Xmas day on BA flight and connecting AA at T7 at 1945 to Toronto, same booking. Is that enough time for connection? Will I have to re-check luggage as well?

     

    You have your terminals backwards - you will arrive in T7, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, take the AirTrain to T8, go through security and to your departure gate. You should have enough time.

    Hi Returning from Texas to London flying from Austin into JFK via Delta and then under the same booking picking up a Virgin Atlantic flight from JFK to LHR, is 2 hours enough time. What will happen to my checked bags?

     

    You don't have to do anything with your bags. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.

    Hi There, I have a connection first thing tomorrow morning. Arriving from YYZ in JFK at 0750. Delta seems to think I can make my connection at 0830 to BDA. Can you confirm the jitney is out of gate B54 and if I need to go through security again? If you know, how often does the jitney come? Thank you!

     

    The Jitney runs almost constantly and you don't have to go through security again. You appear to have the gate right.

     

  • Landing in Terminal 4 from Dubai and connecting flight from Terminal 5

    Hi All, I will be flying from Dubai to JFK landing at 08:15hrs (Terminal 4) and i have connecting flight from Terminal 5 departure at 10:20hrs (Jet blue) to Fort Lauderdale. The said ticket was booked through Emirates and it has codeshare agreement with Jet blue. My concern is whether 2hrs is enough to do customs/immigration and drop the baggage again and board the Jet blue flight. Thanks in advance and wishing you all a very Happy Christmas and wonderful new year.

     

    2 hours should be just about enough time.

    I leave boston at 1.30 and arrive at jfk terminal 4 at 2.45 via Delta. My connecting flight is also Delta at 4.45, it is an international flight to Ghana. Will i have enough time and will i have to re-check my bags at jfk?

     

    You won't have to do anything with your bags in JFK. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.

    Travelling from Dulles to London connecting at JFK T4. Booked ticket through Virgin Atlantic. IAD - JFK flight segment is Virgin-Atlantic (operated by Delta), arriving at T4. Virgin Atlantic flight departs T4. Will our barrage be checked at IAD to LHR or will we have to recheck at JFK? Is one hour sufficient connecting time?

     

    Your bags will be checked through to London. All you have to do in JFK is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.

    Hi folks, I have a flight from Austin in Jetblue to India connecting via JFK and Abu dhabi in Etihad. Request you to explain my queries as it is my first time to JFK. 1. My booking is on a single ticket. Will Jetblue giave boarding passes to all connections? Or Do I have to reclaim baggage at JFK and re-check in? My layover is 2h 50m 2. If no re-check in, is it just a change of terminals from T5 to T4 and straight through security and gates in JFK?

     

    Jetblue should be able to issue both boarding passes and check your bags through to India. You won't have to do anything with your bags in JFK. You just have to go from T5 to T4 and through security.

     

    Thanks a lot Zap!!

    I have a connection at JFK on my way to Milan. Arrive at JFK at 4:24pm and depart at 6pm for Milan. American Airlines flight booked together through expedia. Is this enough time and will i have to transfer the luggage myself? Thanks for the help.

     

    You will not have to do anything with your bags in JFK. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Beginning in Twin Falls, Idaho to Salt Lake City then JFK and finally to Heathrow. All one Delta ticket. I should not have to go through security or claim my checked bags before boarding at JFK, right?

     

    Right. If you arrive in Terminal 2 and need to get to Terminal 4 for your departure, Delta runs a shuttle inside security between their two terminals.

     

    Thanks much ZAP.

    We are arriving from Cancun on JetBlue T5 at 15:35 to JFK, departure to Helsinki is at 17:45 T8 on Iberia (Finnair). We have ESTA. Do we have enough time? We will have checked bags. It is one reservation.

     

    I think that's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

    Thank you for prompt reply:)

    Flying from Dublin to JKF then MSP and finally Winnipeg, we have a 2 hour layover at JFK, is that enough time to clear customs and make our MSP flight?

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Dublin. All you have to do in JFK is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have plenty of time.

     

    That makes it easy, thanks.

    I am flying from BOS to JFK on JetBlue. I then have to connect to AirChina to PEK within 2hrs 15min. Do I have to claim my baggage at JFK and transfer it to AirChina? If so, is this enough time?

     

    I'll add that all booking was done on AirChina's site.

     

    No, you do not have to claim your baggage in JFK. All you have to do is take the AirTrain from Terminal 5 where you will arrive to Terminal 1 where you depart and go through security. You should have enough time as long as your JetBlue flight is close to on-time.
