  • 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!

    I'm traveling on my own through jfk terminal 4 arrival 13:20 connecting to pit departing terminal 4 jfk. How straight forward is this going to be I depart 15:30 is this enough time also was told I didn't need to recheck bags just go through security wirh them. What does this mean. Am very worried about the whole trip.

    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

    We are flying Jetblue from Ft. Lauderdale to JFK and then El Al to Tel Aviv. Will we need to pickup our bags and recheck them in NY? Also, will we need to go through security again?

    Arriving Intl fly from ACC @ 5:15 a.m. will I have enough time to make 7:00 a.m. departure to ORD. Do I claim baggage and recheck in same area?


    Both flights are AA - dont know if that makes a difference ?


    If your bags are tagged to MCO in LHR, then they will accept them for re-check. You would also avoid having to pay the checked bag fee. That being said, I think there's an increased chance of them being lost if you leave them at DFW overnight.


  • from terminal 8 to terminal 3

    Hi, I'm flying with American Airlines from Cancun , arriving to terminal 8 at 16:40 and have a flight to Telaviv with ELAL at 23:15 from terminal 3. Should I claim the baggage and check in again in T3? Is it enough time for this connection?


  • enough time for connections?
    Jun 11, 2014
    Hi Honeymoon trip so confirming the new layouts with connections times. We leave Minneapolis at 11:15am to JFK arriving at 2:59 then our flight to athens greece is at 4:10 so 1 hr and 10 minutes. Is this the same terminal or would it be T2 to T4 now. And I wouldnt have to worry about any extra security or baggage transfers right. This is all delta/KLM Also I had to redo my return flight with Athens to amsterdam giving us a 50 minute layover to take a flight to minneapolis. Also Delta/KLM. I was told by the delta agent that I wouldnt have to worry about my bags as they will be transferred for me and no customs just a security check. Does that sound right. Thanks!!


    It may be difficult for you to make your connection although only having carry-ons helps. You can also check in online for your Delta flights before you leave Iceland. You will arrive in Terminal 7 (assuming you are flying Icelandair) where you will go through US Immigration and Customs. Then you will both take the AirTrain/Air Terminals Train to Terminal 2 where your Delta flights will depart.

    I'll be arriving at JFK T4 (EygetAirlines ) @ 15:15 and my separated ticket with luggege as international to T8 American Airlines departured @ 17:45 will that be enough to go uncheck and check the luggege and go though customs ?


    No, you don't have to do anything with your baggage in O'Hare. You just have to go from your arrrival gate to your departure gate. You will go through Canadian Immigration when you get to Ottawa. On the return, you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Ottawa and your connection in O'Hare will again just be like a domestic flight.


    Thanks so much! It makes me more at ease!


    I forgot to mention that I am not a US Citizen. I am a permenant resident. Does that change the process??


    No, that does not change anything.


    Another question I wanted to know. What kind of food & bag size ( food) can I bring in my cary on??


    You can bring any food you want as long as it's not liquid or gel. Both of your flights have very small overhead bins, so if you actually want to bring it on the plane it should fit under the seat in front of you.


    Ok! Thanks!


  • from Finnair to American Airlines
    Jun 2, 2014
    I am on Finnair AY0005 arriving 15.50 and then continuing on American Airlines AA0181 at 17.30 to Los Angeles. It is one ticket so I think the luggage is checked through to LA. How do I do the transfer? Is the time enough? I still need to pick up my luggage?
