    arriving JFK T4 with international flight (SAA) and need to catch Delta flight at T2 to Orlando. Will 2h20 be enough to collect baggage, clear customs, change terminals, check baggage for Delta flight?

     

    It may be enough time but it may not be. There are reports of immigration taking a really long time at JFK, but it varies a lot by time of day and terminal. You may get lucky.

    So can i handle the luggage all by my self. When you get your bags, can you find a cart right around there easily and do you have to go downstairs or something if yes is there an elevator to take with the cart to catch the airtrain? Sorry for my dum questions. I just don't like the unknown. Many thanks again.

     

    The baggage claim is on the ground level where you find the carts. Then look for the Airline Terminals Train sign and head for the train. However, you can't take the cart onto the train!

    I'm coming in from Rome on Delta at 4:40 pm, need to connect to Delta domestic flight to Detroit at 6:15. Do I have to go through customs and immigration? Which terminal will I likely be arriving at? Departing from? What kind of terminal to terminal transportation is available? Is this time line manageable?

     

    Yes, you will have to go through immigration in JFK. Your flight will arrive in Terminal 3 and depart from Terminal 2. There is a walkway between the two terminals. With the amount of time that it commonly takes to get through immigration in New York, I think there's a good chance you will miss your connection and have to spend the night in New York unless your flight from Rome gets in quite early. You are on the last JFK-DTW flight of the day.

     

    Thanks for this very useful information.

    What is the best/fastest way to connect arriving on Jet Blue at 12PM and need to connect to Korean Air leaving at 2PM.

     

    You have to take the Air Train and hurry! If your Jet Blue flight is delayed at all you will miss your connection.

     

    Thank you, that is what I am afraid of with this recent furloughs.

    Hi, I'll be arriving at JFK on Jet Blue and leaving on Air Berlin, What are the terminal numbers and how long does it take to get from one to the other, AND is there transportation or is it a walk

     

    JetBlue uses terminal 5 and Air Berlin uses Terminal 8. Take the Airtrain between the terminals. Budget about an hour for your connection, a little more if you have to claim bags with JetBlue and take them to Air Berlin. (this is assuming your JetBlue flight is domestic).

     

    thank you so much. Your reply is extremely helpful

    Hi, I'll arrive from Italy to Terminal 8 and I'll leave from the same Terminal 8 to SFO, I 'm travelling with the same company AA, my baggage will be transferred on the second fly directly or should I retrive it from my self? thanks a lot

     

    You will have to collect it in immigration and then immediately re-check it with AA when you exit customs.

     

    Thanks for your response, I've another question, are enough 2 hours for immigration-take baggage-check in and pass security check ?

    thank you for your response. I just thought it would be easier if I can pay one of the skycap I think that is what they are called and not worry about lifting my heavy luggage! Is that a possibility? If so where can I find them? Thank you again for taking the time to answer me.

     

    Skycaps are outside & inside the baggage claim areas of each terminal. Terminals are 1 & 8 are far apart. Not sure if Skycaps would do the transfer.

     

    is there a service to accompany my elderly client from T5 to T2 Jet Blue to Delta international departure, using two tickets? a paid service would be wonderful

    My passport is China and I will travel from Tokyo to Montreal, and transfer in the T8 of JFK by AA. (arrive at T8, at leave from T8) I wonder that whether I need a transmit visa when I transfer in the same terminal?

     

    You do indeed need a C-1 transit visa.

     

  • Delta terminal 3 to Etihad terminal 4

    I booked a ticket through Delta and will arrive in JFK terminal 3. I then booked a separate ticket through Etihad which is in terminal 4. My question is how would I do this? Would I go collect my baggage from terminal 3 then use the airtran to terminal 4 and then check my baggage in terminal 4 at the Etihad counter and finally go through security again? thanks... by the way my flight arrives at 3 PM at JFK and my Etihad flight doesn't leave until 10:30 PM, so I will have plenty of time shouldn't I?

     

    Yes, that is how you would do it and yes, you will have plenty of time. In fact the Etihad counter may not be open when you arrive.

    Hi all, I will be traveling with a 3 y o and an 11 y o. I will land on T8 and have to get my luggage and make to T1 and have 4 and a half hours of layover time. I was just wondering if there is any help I can pay for to get all my luggage and help me with it all the way to T1. What are my options?

     

    I take it you already checked with your first airline and it does NOT transfer bags to your connecting airline. In which case you should, on arrival, proceed to the baggage claim area, pick up a cart, load your bags, then take the elevator to the the 'Airline Terminals Train' - unload your cart before boarding the train to T1, your next stop. At T1, grab a cart and proceed to the check-in area. Alternatively, get a taxi.
