  • Connecting within Terminal 4?
    Jun 24, 2014
    I have a flight connection within terminal 4. Flight from Seattle gets in at 9.48pm (ET) at Terminal 4, Gate B34 and my flight to Amsterdam leaves at 10.55pm (ET) from Terminal 4, no gate yet. Is this feasible? I've looked at other comments and don't think I'll have to hit security, but is transferring like this within a terminal quicker?


    Yes, transferring within the same terminal is quite easy. You should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

    My flight from London lands in JFK at 7:05pm. The only available flight to go back home to Austin, TX is at 8:59pm. Is this enough time to get my luggage, re-check them in and get on the flight?


    Yes, that is a reasonable connection time considering that both of your flights will be in Terminal 8.


  • MU connections at JFK
    Jun 19, 2014
    Will be flying into Terminal 1 Sept on China Eastern from Shanghai and need to connect on another China Eastern flight but operated by Delta to Miami at terminal 4. Can anyone help walk me through the procedure.1. Can bags be dropped off after customs at T1? 2. Do I take the skytrain or will there be a transfer shuttle? 3. Do I need to check in again at terminal4? Airline office in manila (MU and DL) seem to be unsure of answers so if anyone has gone through this with China Eastern, this would be most helpful.

    Hi, we will be arriving from Toronto via Air Canada to Terminal 7, around 4:30pm. We will do USA immigration in Toronto. Our next flight with Iberia leaves at 7pm. Are 2.5 hours enough to claim baggage and check-in+security again at T7? could someone confirm these two airlines function in this terminal?

    Flying from San Diego to JFK (terminal 8) with 55 minutes to catch next flight to Barcelona in the same terminal 8 run by the same airline (american/Finn air)...seems simple, but do you think this could take more than an hour? Thanks for you help!

    Hi, We're planning a trip to get to London. We fly from Tampa and get to JFK at 9:40pm and our flight for London on Norwegian Airlines leaves at 10:50pm. Will we have enough time? We're doing carry-on only. Thank you!


    You go through Canadian Immigration in Vancouver. Yes, 1 hr 40 minutes should be enough time.


  • Enough Time for Connecting Flight
    Jun 11, 2014
    Hello. My sister and I are taking a trip to Iceland in November but taking separate connecting flights on the way back. We will both be flying into JFK on Icelandair arriving at 6:05PM. She has a connecting flight with Delta that leaves at 7:30 PM for Charlotte and I have a connecting flight with Delta that leaves at 8PM for Pittsburgh. We both plan on just bringing Carry-On's and the tickets were booked separately. Is this enough time to clear customs between flights? Thanks!

    Jun 8, 2014
    I will be arriving Tuesday morning at 5:30 am on ELAL and leaving at 6:50 am on Jet blue. I understand I will have to get my luggage, go through customs, take a shuttle of some kind to another terminal, check in at jet blue and get to my flight- will I possibly have enough time? also does anyone know what terminals I will be flying into and out of and how easy it is to get a shuttle with luggage. TIA
