  • International to Internal at T8
    Aug 16, 2013
    Hi, Planning a trip from London to Cleveland (OH). AA are suggesting a flight arriving at 1335 and then connecting out at 1455. Is 1hr 20 mins really a realistic connection please?


    No, I wouldn't advise that. It may be possible, but I wouldn't schedule a connection that is less than 2 hours International->Domestic at JFK, even in the same terminal.


    Thanks for confirming that.


  • International to International, Delta and AA, separate tickets
    Aug 13, 2013
    Hello, I've already bought a Delta ticket from GRU that arrives JFK at 5:25AM, on November 25th. I intend to buy AA tickets to ANU, the same day, that departs 7:25AM (I don't know which terminal the flights arrives/departs). Is it enough time to get the AA flight? If it's not, is there any method to make it happen (like "express connection cards" or some way to cut the lines, due to the tight connection time)? Thanks in advance.


    That should be enough time, barely. AA departs from Terminal 8 at JFK, so you will have to claim your baggage from Delta in Terminal 4, then take the AirTrain/Air Terminals Train from T4 to T8 and check it with American. There are no ways to cut the lines.

    Hello, I arrive at JFK Terminal 8 at 18 pm from an international flight this and have to catch a flight out of Terminal 8 at 8 pm will that be enough time?


    18 PM? Do you mean 1800 which would be 6 PM? If so 2 hours is enough time to make your connection.


    yes 6 pm. thanks


  • Transfer between T4 and T2
    Aug 10, 2013
    Hello, im flying from Copenhagen on Friday the 16th of August and arrive at 2pm, i have to transfer to a Delta connection Pinnacle to Toronto Pearson with departure 16.25pm. I do only have carry on luggage, is it enough time?


    Yes, that should be enough time. It's probably fastest to take the AirTrain/Air Terminals Train from T4 to T2 and going back through security there rather than taking Delta's shuttle bus.


    Thank you very much!


  • Timing for connection
    Aug 8, 2013
    Hello, I arrive at JFK Terminal 1 at 5:10 from an international flight this Saturday, and have to catch a flight out of Terminal 2 at 6:30. I only have a carry on. Will that be enough time?


    Without need of baggage re-check-in you should be able to make it. On arrival look for the 'Airline Terminals' train sign & board the train, which runs counter-clockwise between the six terminals, but in the unsecured areas. You need to go through security check before getting to your gate. This Delta terminal has gates C60-C70.


  • Suggestions please.

    When we arrive in NY at 5:30pm we have 1 hour to get to our connecting flight going to London. Flying Delta. I don't know what gates are involved. We have never been to NY. Looking for suggestions to help us swiftly get where we have to be and check in with the passport, etc. In hopes that we make this flight.


    Currently Delta uses two terminals: T2 for domestic (C gates) and T4 for international flights (A & B gates); On arrival look at overhead screens to find your connecting flight & gate numbers. You may also want to check with Delta domestic tel. 800-221-2112), and Delta international tel. 800-241-4141. The Delta shuttle bus will take you to T4 (gate-to-gate) which should take about 12 mins. You have enough time.


    Note to Maug12-Thanks so much for the info

  • Enough time?
    Aug 15, 2013
    Hello, I have a LanChile flight from Santiago Chile to New York (JFK) terminal 8 at 07:40 and an American Airlines connexion to Montréal in the same terminal at 09:20, gate 32. Should have enought time?


    Yes, that should be enough time, but you'll have to hurry.


    Thank... It's a good option alternative a transfert from JFK to LGA and flight connexion at 11h00 AM ?


    The only easy way to get between JFK and LGA is a Taxi, which costs about $35 and takes about 45 minutes.


  • Terminal Switching from IAD to JFK to Amsterdam
    Jul 31, 2013
    HI, I'm flying to Sweden in a month. I am flying from DC to JFK to Amsterdam. I have 90 minutes at JFK. I know I'm leaving from Terminal 4 to Amsterdam but I do not know which terminal my Delta flight is coming into JFK at (either 2 or 4). If it's terminal 2, will I have enough time to get to terminal 4? I have never been to the JFK airport but I am told I will have to leave the secure area and come back in. Any advice is appreciated.


    Yes you have enough time - on arrival at T2 you will be directed to the Delta Shuttle taking you to T4 (gate-to-gate).


    Delta has a good map of how this works - http://www.delta.com/content/www/en_US/traveling-with-us/airports-and-aircraft/airports/new-york-jfk.html


    Thanks for the link and the advice on the Delta Shuttle. Will I have to get my checked bags and re-check them in? Can't they just move my bags from the first plane to the second?


    Yes, your bags should be checked through to your final destination, in which case you won't have to do anything with them in JFK.


  • Enough Time
    Aug 1, 2013
    Hi, I am traveling back from Denmark this Friday. I land in JFK at 2pm and leave fr Austin at 4pm. I am flying Delta. Do I have enough time to get my bag, go through customs, recheck my bag, go through security and get to the gate? I am assuming I land in one terminal and need to get to a different terminal. I am a US citizen. Thanks.


    Yes, you will arrive in Terminal 4 and it appears the Austin flight departs from Terminal 2. The best way to get between them is after re-checking your bag, to take the AirTrain/Air Terminals Train from T4 to T2 and then go back through security.


    Thanks for the help. Is this the right sequence that I will go through? I land, go through immigration, get bag, go through customs, recheck bag, take train to T2, go through security, get on next flight?


  • Where Pinnacle Arrive; best connection T4
    Jul 25, 2013
    I fly from MSP on Delta Connection Pinnacle CRJ900 next week, connect to Delta to Amsterdam out of T4, 2 hours between. Pinnacle arrive T2? if so, best way to get T2 - T4, with carry on? enough time?


    Yes, the Pinnacle flight will arrive in T2. Delta runs a shuttle bus on the secure side between T4 and T2. You should have enough time.


  • Is an hour and fifty minutes enough time through customs?
    Jul 21, 2013
    I will be flying in from Santiago Dominican Republic on jet blue flight 1536 and transferring to jet blue flight 71 with one hour and fifty minutes to go through customs and recheck bags. Is that enough time?


    Yes, it should be enough time.
