  • Terminal 8 - Catching my next flight
    Mar 26, 2014
    I will be flying from Orlando to New York and catch my next flight to Doha using Qatar Airways with a window of 1hr 35mins. Is it enough time for me to catch the next flight?


    What airline are you flying to new york? Were your domestic and international tickets bought separately or together?


  • Virgin America to Singapore Airlines connections.
    Mar 23, 2014
    I will be flying LAX-JFK-FRA with Virgin America and Singapore Airlines. I am wondering how easy the connection process is between both airlines. I will have 1 hour with 50 minutes to do this connection. Will it be enough?


    If your tickets were bought on one reservation then Virgin America can check your bags through to Singapore. Both of your flights will be in Terminal 4 so if your first flight is on-time and your bags are checked through you should have plenty of time and even if you can't get your bags checked through the connection is makeable.


    I booked all my flights on one ticket so I will be good on this aspect. It will even give me time to try out the Shake Sack.


  • Term8--->JetBlue
    Mar 22, 2014
    Hi ..I arrive on an international flite American at Term 8, 705PM and have a connecting flight out of Jet Blue Terminal Term 5 @ 850pm. I need to pass immigration, collect baggage and recheck baggage. Is 1 hour and minutes sufficient time assuming all are on time? I have traveled thru JFK before, know about trains but wondering about timing. Is 110 minutes enough? Many thnx ;-)


    It's cutting it close, it doesn't leave much room for any delays, especially if AA doesn't check your bags through to JetBlue and you have to transfer them on the airtrain yourself.


    The American flight wasn't purchased at the same time as the Jet Blue flight so I yes I would have to schlep the luggage myself. Thanks for the response!


    Another ?..if I was 2 stay the night and take a differnt flight the following day what are the hotel options nearest 2 the airport? Cheers


  • 3 hours enough time?
    Mar 22, 2014
    We are arriving from Amsterdam (KLM) and our next plane is a Jetblue. We have to pass customs and pick up our luggage. Is 3h enough time?


    Yes, that should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. You will get between Terminal 4 and Terminal 5 using the AirTrain/Air Terminals Train.

  • International DELTA to Domestic AA
    Mar 19, 2014
    My flight from Brazil arrive at JFK 06:11 AM by Delta and my next flight do Miami will be at 09:20 AM by American Airlines. Is there enough time? Tks


    Yes, that should be enough time, even if you have to transfer bags yourself (if you booked the two tickets separately you will have to transfer the bags yourself on the AIrTrain from T4 to T8).

  • international arrival 2:50min lay over
    Mar 18, 2014
    I am arriving at JFK at 22:00 on April 5th (Terminal 4) from Bogotá, Colombia and have a flight connection. My next flight will be departing at 00:50 to Seoul from terminal 1. Is that time enoguh to reach my next flight on time?. How easy is to move from terminal 1 to terminal 4? Thank you


    It should be enough time. All Terminals are connected outside security by the AirTrain/Air Terminals Train. You will need approximately 1 hour to get through immigration and customs and 45 minutes to get to T1 and through security. So there's not much time for delays but you should have enough time.


  • Do i have enough time?
    Mar 14, 2014
    I will arrive from fort lauderdale to jfk on jet blue at terminal 5 and will have 1 hr and 38 min as a layover to my next flight on egyptair at terminal 4 would i have enough time to catch the flight and do they send my luggage to the final destination or i will have to pick them up? My flight is on 24 march


    JetBlue and Egyptair do have an interline agreement, so if you bought your tickets together JetBlue should be able to check your bags through to Egyptair. If they can't I don't think you will have enough time to claim them and get them to the Egyptair counter before their bag cutoff.


  • transit time
    Mar 14, 2014
    I will be landing at terminal 4 ELAL at 15:20/ How long would you expect it to take to go through immigration and customs (American citizen) wthout luggage? Have times significantly changed since the new passport kiosks have been added? How long to get to terminal 8 and go through security and get to American Airlines?


    It should take maybe 30 minutes to get through immigration. It will take you maybe another 15 to get to T8, then however long security takes (anywhere between 5 and 30 minutes).


    Mar 14, 2014
    I will arrive at JFK T1 from LAP at 4.15pm and depart to FCO T1 at 6pm is it enough time?


    LAP is La Paz, Mexico, which does not have flights to JFK. Where are you actually arriving from? (La Paz, Bolivia also does not have flights to JFK). Is your arrival into JFK domestic or international?


    Sorry We not arrive from LAP but from MEX....


    Yes, that should be enough time, but if there are any delays you may have trouble meeting the bag cutoff with Alitalia if you have to transfer bags yourself. However, Aeromexico should be able to tag your bags through to Rome in La Paz since both airlines are in SkyTeam.


  • immigration and custom times
    Mar 13, 2014
    What is the average time it takes for a US citizen with only carry on luggage to clear immigration and customs? Arriving June 17th at 5 PM


    It also depends what Terminal, but I would budget somewhere between 30 and 45 minutes.


  • International arrival w/ 90 min. Lay over
    Mar 13, 2014
    Is 90 min long enough btw flights to get through customs? Arriving on Delta from Milan and connecting to SFO (also a Delta flight). We will not have checked baggage, and I believe both flights are terminal 2. Thanks!


    Yes, that should be enough time but doesn't leave much room for delays. Actually, both of your flights will be in Terminal 4.


  • connecting times for international travelers
    Mar 13, 2014
    I have an international flight landing at 15:20 at terminal 4 and a connecting flight on American leaving at 17:55 terminal 8. My return flights have me arriving at terminal 8 at 16:45 and departing on an international flight at 19:00/ Is this sufficient time?


    It should be enough time, even if you have to transfer bags yourself, as long as there are no delays.
