Hi, i'm travelling from UK to Canada with my 2 kids. We arrive on Virgin at JFK Term 4 at 16:30. I'm looking to fly out with Air Canada at 19:55 from Term 8. I'll be changing airlines, so no through ticket, so i'll have to clear security, collect my bags, re-check my bags and back out through security. Is 3h 25m enough time?
Air Canada does not use Terminal 8. They use Terminal 7. Yes, that should be enough time.
I am travelling to Buffalo via JFK on Sunday. My flight with Virgin Atlantic arrives in JFK at 14:50 and my connecting flight (with Delta) departs at 16:26. I am assuming I will need to go through Security/Customs etc but will I need to collect my luggage or will this be automatically transferred? Thank you.
Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security and to your departure gate. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Arriving 5:40pm on Airberlin flight from Geneva in Terminal 8 and connecting to JetBlue flight departing at 8:08pm from Terminal 5. US citizen with checked bags. Will have have enough time to check bags into my JetBlue flight?
Everything will have to go perfectly in order for you to make it.
I'm scheduled on a flight arriving on American Airlines at 8:15 PM (terminal 8), with a flight on Air France departing at 9:50 PM (terminal 1). Is this a feasible connection? Will i need to go through security again?
Yes, you will have to go through security again in T1. If you have checked bags that is not possible. With no checked bags it's barely possible if everything goes perfectly.
I am planning on buying two tickets; one from London to JFK arriving at 11:10am on the 24th June 2017 and another on the same day leaving JFK at 13:50 to Augusta, Maine. I'm coming in on a J1 visa and have been to the USA before but is 2 hours 40 mins enough time to do all the necessary baggage collection, baggage drop off and checking in etc.
