  • Connection MTY - JFK - CPH 2.5 hours
    Aug 17, 2015
    Hello, we have a connection from Monterrey, Mexico arriving to JFK Terminal 1 at 2:10 pm. Will we make it in time to Terminal 2 where our Delta flight to Copenhagen departs at 4:40 pm?. We are travelling with a Mexican citizen. Thank you.


    That should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. You will arrive, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then take the AirTrain to Terminal 4 (not Terminal 2) and go through security and to your departure gate. Note that if you don't already have a US Visa of some sort you will need a US Transit Visa.


  • Terminal 4 Connection?
    Aug 19, 2015
    I will be arriving on flight DL 419 from Milan at 1:50pm. My connecting flight is DL 2407 to Orlando, departing at 4:05pm. How realistic is it that I will make that flight? Have two suitcases checked in. Thank you.


    That is very realistic. You will arrive in Terminal 4, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the re-check desk. Then you can either go through security in Terminal 4 and take the Delta shuttle bus to Terminal 2 or take the AirTrain to Terminal 2 and go through security there.


    I am arriving at jfk at 7h20am from montreal at terminal 4 and leavin at terminal 2 at 8h10 for fortlauderdale! Will i have time to make my flight? I have 1checked bag!


    Thank you so much! I have a child with me, but I should still be able to hopefully make it. I know some airlines give "Express" passes to those that have to make a fast connection, not sure if Delta does.


  • Connection from LAX at JFK to CPH
    Aug 15, 2015
    Coming into JFK 2:53 pm on Delta from LAX, have a connection to make at 4:40 pm on AF to CPH, is that enough to time?


    Both flights will be operated by Delta. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 4. You should have plenty of time.


  • Connection time enough
    Aug 16, 2015
    Arriving at 12:35 with Delta from Amsterdam at T4. Then departing at 14:50 from T2 with Delta to Miami. Do i have enough time for the transfer?


    That should be enough time.


    Thank you for your reply! I read there are 2 options to go to T2; via Airtrain or via Delta shuttle. What, do you think, is the best (quickest) option?


    I would take the AirTrain since the AirTrain runs more frequently and because the security lines are likely shorter in T2.


  • Terminal 7 to Terminal 4 fastest route
    Aug 15, 2015
    We are flying into Terminal 7 and need to take and store a surfboard in Terminal 4. Does anyone know the fastest route and how to transfer between the 2 terminals - with a surboard?


    The only way between terminals is the AirTrain.

    I arrive at T4 on VS flight at 1525 and an AA flight to CLT from t8 at 1704. Is this enought time to connection?


    With checked baggage that is not enough time. Without checked baggage if you check-in online for your AA flight before you leave the UK, you may barely have enough time.


  • CDG - JFK - YYZ
    Aug 14, 2015
    Hello, we are arriving from CDG on DL100 at 1.04pm continuing to YYZ at 3.45 pm on DL 4070. Both flights are Terminal 4, do we need to clear immigration and customs, collect our luggage, re-check and go through security again for the JFK-YYZ flight? Is this enough time to do this?


    Yes, at JFK you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags, and go through security. You should have plenty of time.

    You will arrive in Terminal 4, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate, also in Terminal 4.


  • Terminal 1 (Norwegian Air) to Terminal 5 (Jet Blue)
    Aug 13, 2015
    Oslo to JFK on Norwegian Air Shuttle arr. 8:05 p.m. then Jet Blue to BOS departing at 10:50 p.m. Separate Tickets. One piece of luggage How reasonable?


    Barely possible if you check in online for your JetBlue flight and your Norwegian flight is on-time.

    I am flying into JFK from Delta/KLM flight 5701 arriving to 3:00pm and flying to AMS KLM flight 6128 departing at 4:40 pm.. What terminals will I fly in and out of, will we need to go through security and is this enough time? thanks


    Both flights are Delta flights. They will both be in Terminal 4. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have plenty of time.


    It looks one lands at terminal 4 and the other departs from terminal 2.


  • 1:37 Mins Enough?
    Aug 11, 2015
    Hi I'm traveling on Jetblue flight 836 from STI (Santiago, DR) to JFK arriving at 1:48 PM to then catching a connecting flight from JFK to RSW (Fort Myers) flight 1729 at 3:25 pm. Would that be enough time for an elderly person in a wheelchair? Thanks


    It should be barely enough time.


  • 1 hr enough to connect from Qatar 5169 to Qatar 702?
    Aug 10, 2015
    Hi, I'm traveling from Boston to NY(JFK) on Qatar 5169 and arrive at 21:03 and have a connecting flight from NY to Doha International on Qatar 702 at 22:00 - its just an hour - is that enough time for a connection for an old person - are the terminals very far? What will happen if the first flight gets delayed?


    That should be enough time. Both flights are in Terminal 8. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If the first flight is delayed you will be booked on the flight to Doha the next evening.


    Also, note that your Boston to JFK flight will be operated by American Airlines, so check in with them in Boston.

    we flying from LAX on 4.09 with Jet Blue to JFK arriving 15.00 and have a connecting flight to Lon HTW w BA from T7 departing at 18.35 will that be sufficient time to collect our bags, check in for our international flight at T7


    Yes, that should be plenty of time.


    Does jet blue have a good record of being on time and would we b made a priority if our JB flight is delayed or is it our responsibility


    JetBlue does OK considering that their two largest airports are located in the middle of the most congested airspace in the country. So, if your flight's delayed, it's probably due to JFK, not JetBlue.


    But would we get any help w getting tbrough security etc at T7 we will have one piece of luggage to check in rest is hand


    I don't know what you mean "help"


    would we get priority if we were delayed either in flying into JFK or at the airport to ensure we don't miss our flight home that is waht I mean by help.


  • Getting from Terminal 7 to Terminal 5
    Aug 10, 2015
    Hi. My daughter is arriving from Glasgow via Iceland on Icelandair in arriving 7pm into Terminal 7 . She is then flying JetBlue from Terminal 5 at 9.55pm to Vegas. The tickets were purchased separately. She has never been to America so is worried as doesn't know how this will go. I assume she needs to collect her luggage, clear Security then take the Airtrain to Terminal 5 then find the JetBlue desk and check in for her next flight. Will she have enough time? Any help is appreciated.


    Yes. you have the process more or less correct. She will arrive, go through US Immigration, claim her bags, and go through US Customs, then take the AirTrain to T5 and re-check her bags with JetBlue. 2 hrs 55 mins is borderline for this type of connection. It should be possible if her first flight is on-time.


    Thanks so much for your comment. It really helped. We have decided to book her onto the first flight the next day to be sure.

    Can you advise if 3 hours allows sufficient time for connection and check in for Jet blue flight arriving into Terminal 5 from LAX at 15.00 to catch international BA flight from T7 departing at 18.35.


    Yes, that should be enough time if your Jetblue flight is on-time.
