    We are arriving at terminal 1 at 4pm from LA and our daughter at terminal 4 at 4.40pm from Vancover. Where is best to meet with a view to moving onto Manhattan from there by cab. Thank you

     

    Meet in the Terminal 4 baggage claim. Also, you will not arrive in Terminal 1 - no flights from LA arrive in Terminal 1.

    I am flying into JFK on a Delta Domestic Flight to make a connection for a Delta international flight to Rome. Have 90 mins to make connection. Do I have to go through security again and will I have enough time to make my flight?

     

    No you do not have to go through security again. You will arrive in Terminal 2 or 4 and depart from Terminal 4. if you arrive in Terminal 2 then Delta operates a shuttle bus inside security to Terminal 4.

    Flying El Al into JFk and arriving at 3:45 pm. Have a connecting flight to Denver at 8:31 pm with Jet Blue. Is that ample time to go through customs and recheck baggage? Is there a terminal change?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Yes, you will arrive in Terminal 4 and depart from Terminal 5.

    Will i have to time! I am landing in jfk 2:40pm and then have anthoer flight from jfk terminal 7 departure 5;30pm. Will i jave time to take my bag from bagage claim and check in again at the chck in counter for my other flight? First flight flying on american airlines, and second airlines is british airways powered by american airlines.

     

    If your second flight is operated by American then it will also be in Terminal 8 where you arrive. If everything is on the same reservation then you don't have to do anything with your bags. You just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.

     

  • Delta ATH to JFK to BOS

    I'm thinking about taking a Delta flight Athens to JFK (arriving terminal 4) connecting to Boston (departing terminal 4). The arrival and departure gates at JFK today for these flights were B41 and B45. My question is, at one point would I have to pass through immigration and customs, given that it appears I'd only have to walk 4 gates away to connect?

     

    In JFK you have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate.

    Arriving jet blue into term 5 from PLS hand luggage transiting to BA Terminal 7. As I have no checked luggage to collect do I have to clear customs and re check in, or is there a transit/connection desk/system? Thank you.

     

    Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration and customs, then take the AirTrain to Terminal 7, get your British Airways boarding pass, and go through security.

     

    Many thanks, so no benefit in going hand luggage only, might as well go with hold luggage. Why is it so backward transiting in USA airports. Europe so much easier, just transit and hold bags get moved around the terminals.

     

    There is an advantage of not having checked bags - you won't have to wait to claim them in T5 and you won't have to get in line to check them in T7.

    How far is it from Jet Blue in terminal 5 to Delta international terminal?

     

    It takes about 5-10 minutes on the airtrain from T5 to T4.

    I am arriving to JFK from Atlanta on a delta flight (terminal 4) at 5:30 pm and then have a flight to Paris at terminal 1 that departs at 7:20pm. The trip is on one ticket. Is this enough time to make the connection?

     

    It's possible but it leaves no time to spare if the flight from Atlanta is delayed as you will have to go through security again in Terminal 1.

    JetBlue to South African Airways....made w/ 1 reservation and bags will be automatically transferred. I have a 1 hr 39 min between flights..is that enough time to get to train and thru security?

     

    I mean coming from ORD into Terminal 5 and having 1 hr 30 min to get to Terminal 4. Thank! :)

     

    It's not impossible, but with the recent lines it certainly won't be easy.

    I am arriving at JFK from Boston with a 51 minute connecting time for a flight to Nice, France. I don't know if I will have to change terminals. Is this enough time? I booked the flight on the Delta website.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. If you have to change terminals from 2 to 4, Delta runs a shuttle bus inside security between them.

     

    Thank you!

    I will be arriving by Cathay in Terminal 7 from HKG at 8.10pm, my next flight is JetBlue Terminal 5 at 10.55pm. Both flights are on the same reservation. What is the process (do I need to pick up my luggage and where do I re-check it) and will I have enough time? Thanks a lot.

     

    You will arrive in Terminal 7, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, take the AirTrain to Terminal 5, go through security and to your departure gate. you should have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

     

    Thanks a lot!! I appreciate it :)

    I'll be arriving into JFK Terminal 4 on Singapore Airlines at 11.10am, and connecting to a AA flight in Terminal 8 at 3.40pm to Columbus. What is the process and will I have enough time?

     

    You will arrive, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, take your bags with you on the AirTrain to Terminal 8, re-check them at the AA ticket counter and go through security. You should have enough time.
