  • minimum connecting time and procedure
    Jan 6, 2015

    I am arriving with El Al from TLV on JAN15 at 06.00 a.m. and would like to connect to FLL. what is the minimum connecting time? what do I need to do if I do not have a boarding card yet for the onward domestic flight. I am travelling on standby since I am an airline employee. How do I get from one terminal to the other? ossible connections with VX and B6 or DL. thanks in advance

     

    The AirTrain connects all terminals outside security. DL uses T2 and T4. VX uses T4, B6 uses T5. Since VX only has one JFK-FLL flight a day and it is at 8 AM I don't think you will have time to make it. You have a better chance of making it on a B6 flight since they have bigger aircraft and more frequent flights. However, it is very hard to get on flights to South Florida during the winter, especially travelling as an OA standby, so you might be in NY for awhile

     

  • T1 to T4 in 1hr 50 min

    I am going delhi to seattle by airfrance (single e-ticket) and have two stops one at CDG airport paris (layover time 7 hr) and other at JFK (layover time 1hr 50 min). Since newyork is first port of entry for me in USA, so I have to clear the customs at JFK airport itself. The arrival flight at JFK is on Terminal 1 while the departure flight to seattle is from Terminal 4. I have 1 hr 50 min connection time at JFK. will it be enough ? The flight from newyork to seattle is operated jointly by delta airlines and airfrance.

     

    That should be barely enough time to make your connection if your flight from Paris is on-time. After you clear customs you will re-check your bags at the transfer desk in T1, then take the AirTrain to T4, go through security and to your departure gate.

    Arriving in JFK T4 from Brazil with connection to LAX at T4 on a single e-ticket, single airline. Layover time 1 hr 35 min. We were told by the airlines that luggage would go straight from Brazil to LAX, but don't we have to pass through customs at first point of entry (JFK)? We have 6 suitcases - would we have to claim them, go through customs and re-check?

     

    Yes, you will have to claim them, go through US Customs, then re-check them at the transfer desk in JFK.

     

    Thanks for the reply! Do we claim them at the normal baggage claim area, having to go through security again or is there a special baggage claim and recheck within the same secured area that we deplane? Thank you!

     

    There is a special international baggage claim in between US Immigration and US Customs and then a re-check desk immediately after. Then you will have to go through security and to your departure gate.

    We are coming into JFK on AB and then going on to CLT via Us Airways. These are booked on separate tickets. AB is arriving in T8 and IS is scheduled to depart from T8. Is a 2 hr connection doable with only carry on?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time.

    I am arriving on a Delta flight tomorrow (T2) at 8 and meeting someone who is arriving from London at 9 into T7 (I think)...is there any way I can walk from T2 to T7 to meet him at his gate or do I need to meet him in the arrival area? If I need to just meet him in the arrival area of T7, do I walk there from T2 and where is a good meeting place?

     

    You can't walk but you can take the AirTrain. Yes, you can meet him on the arrivals level of T7 at the exit of customs.

     

  • T4 to T8 with 3h layover

    Hi. I'm arriving at T4 with Swiss at 1 pm at JFK, leaving with AA at T8 4 pm. So that would mean 3h layover, which i hope should be fine. However, the inbound flight was usually delayed in the past few days for about 1h. What would be the minimum transfer time i would need? Do i have to reclaim my baggage? Thank you, much appreciated.

     

    Yes, you will need to claim your baggage to go through US Customs. If you purchased all your tickets together and your bags are checked to your final destination, you can re-check your bags in T4. Otherwise you will have to take them to T8 to re-check at the AA counter. Minimum connection time is about 100 minutes with tickets purchased together and about 2 hours if not.

     

    Thank you ZAP, very much appreciated! Have a nice day

     

  • 2 hour layover for international flight

    Hi we are traveling from toronto to jfk via delta arriving at 755 pm (Thursday) we then have a seperate ticket on ethiad from JFK to Abu Dhabi departing at 955 pm (same night)Both flights are from terminal 4 and we have no checked baggage . 1) will we clear immigration in canada? 2) do we need to clear security again at JFK or can we just walk over to the next gate as we will have our e boarding passes 3) will we have to do any thing else at JFK (ie customs, recheckin, immigration) 4) if we do have to re check in we have 2 hours 5 minutes layover is that enough? Note: these are seperate tickets that we bought from two different websites

     

    Yes, you will pre-clear US Immigration in Canada. No, you do not have to go through security in JFK if you already have your boarding passes. And yes, if you do need to go to the Etihad counter outside security you should have enough time.

    previous question i forgot to include next flight is to spain

     

    Yes, you still have a good chance of making it. All you have to do is walk from your arriving flight to your departing flight.

     

    thank you, I didn't know if they would need time to go through more security being it was an international flight

    Will 1 hour 20 minutes be enough time to get from terminal 8 to terminal 1 for an international connection? I'm flying Japan Airways but the flight from Boston says operated by American... Will I have to go through security at JFK too?

     

    Yes, you should have enough time if your first flight is on-time. Yes, you will have to go through security again when you get to Terminal 1 for your JAL flight.

     

    Thanks ZAP!

     

  • is 2 hr enough time for changing T2 to T3 ie from delta to Emirates

    I am flying to Hyd (India) from Minneapolis via JFK-single e-ticket where they are going to issue boarding pass all the way. I have layover 2 h for changing from domestic flight delta (T2) to international flight emirates (T4) at JFK. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Delta even operates a shuttle bus inside security between T2 and T4.

     

    which one is better? air train or delta shuttle bus inside security. I heard bad about delta shuttle bus.

     

    Shuttle bus is pretty much always faster.
