    Hi, I am flying on one ticket (I think). From Las Vegas to Paris, with a layover in JFK. Connecting time is 2 hours. What do you guys think?

     

    That's plenty of time. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. So all you will have to do in JFK if your tickets were purchased together is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If you post what airlines you are flying I can help you more specifically.

     

    I thought so as well; but after booking my trip through Air France I am a bit confused. I booked with Air France, and I seem to have one itinerary. I will be flying LAS to JFK and arrive at 21:30 on Air France 8721 (but carried out by Delta), landing at terminal 4. On my ticket it says that my next flight Air France 9 leaves at 23:35, terminal 1. (no mentions about Delta this time) Thank you for your quick response

     

    Yes, so your first flight will be operated by Delta and arrive in Terminal 2 or 4 and your second flight will be operated by Air France. You will have to take the AirTrain from your arrival terminal to Terminal 1 and go through security in JFK. Your bags will be transferred for you and you should be issued both boarding passes in Las Vegas.

     

    Okay, great. So even when we need to take the AirTrain to switch terminals and go through security, the 2 hour is enough?

     

    Yes, it should be.

    Hi i'm flying out of London Heathrow on AA flight 105 arriving to JFK at 1540 and my connecting flight to Las Vegas is AA flight 211 dept JFK 1700 (so 80minute transfer time). Is this enough transfer time? The AmericanAirlines website doesn't state it's a terminal change. Will I have to clear immagration in NY or not until LAS? Many thanks in advance for a reply.

     

    In JFK you will arrive in Terminal 8, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags, go then go through security and to your departure gate also in Terminal 8. you have 10 minutes less than the recommended time but it's possible.

     

    Thanks for the reply. Hoping it goes without fault! Cheers

    Hi I am flying in from India by EK 201 at 2:15 pm and have a connecting flight to Boston by AA199 at 4:15 pm. Is there enough time ???

     

    That is barely enough time if your Emirates flight is on-time. Check in online for your AA flight before you leave India to save a little time.

    Hi, if I am landing in JFK from Finland and I have only two hours to get to my flight to Cancun, would that be enough time to make it? I'd book everything with Finnair like this: ARN-HEL-JFK-CUN. Thanks

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. All flights will be in Terminal 8. You would just have to go through US Immigration,claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go through security and to your departure gate.

    We are arriving on Delta international from Pisa Italy at 1:03 pm and need to make a connection to a Jet Blue flight to Syracuse NY at 4:00 pm. Is 3 hours enough time to claim luggage, clear customs, transfer terminals, check luggage and clear security?

     

    That should be enough time if your flight from Pisa is on-time. To save a little time you can check in online for your JetBlue flight before leaving Italy.

    If I am on a domestic flight arriving at terminal 8 at 10:20 p.m. and have an international connection(not on the same airline) at :30 a.m. (2 hrs and 10 minutes) leaving terminal 7 - is it safe to reserve that domestic flight?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time, even if it's two separate itineraries and you have to transfer baggage yourself.

    My flight arrives at JFK Terminal 4 at 2:30pm and have a flight out of Terminal 7 at 6:30 pm. Do I have enough time and is it easy to get around to find out how to get there?

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. The AirTrain connects all Terminals outside security.

    I am concerned because I have a short layover, 1hr15min at JFK. Is this enough time to transfer?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will arrive in terminal 2 or 4. You will take the AirTrain to Terminal 1 and go through security. Assuming both tickets were purchased together your baggage will be transferred for you and you will be issued both boarding passes in Austin.

    Hi, I am traveling from LAX to ZRH with a 2hr 15min connection at JFK with American Airlines all on one ticket. At JFK, am I required to claim my luggage and re-check it or is it taken care of by the airline? Also, since I will be arriving at the domestic terminal, will I need to take a shuttle to the international terminal for my departure, or will I be departing from the same terminal as my arrival? Thanks so much.

     

    No, there us No US Customs when leaving the US. All American Airlines flights are in Terminal 8. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.

     

    Great, thank you!

    Hi my daughter is coming home after her year at uni at USF. When she arrives from tampa into JFK will she have to collect her bagsnandnrecheck them in for her London Heathrow flight even though both flights are with Delta on 1 ticket?

     

    No, there is no US Customs when leaving the US. All she has to do is go from her arrival gate to her departure gate. She will arrive in Terminal 2 or 4 and depart from Terminal 4. Delta runs a shuttle bus inside security if she needs to change terminals.

     

    Thank you so much! She has 2 large cases and a rucksack and was stressing about it.

    Flying on Delta from Austin, TX with a connection(same airline) to Buffalo, NY. Is 1hr 17min enough time to make the connection

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Delta uses both Terminals 2 and 4 for domestic flights. If you need to change terminals Delta runs a shuttle bus inside security between the two terminals.

    Hello I am going from PEK (beijing arrive jfk 10.20am with air china, I then have a connection at 11.20am jfk to Miami with us airways on a new ticket is the 50 min window enough time, I will have no luggage, from the uk with esta? I am trying to get to family funeral the cheapest way possible from aia to kingston thanks

     

    NOOO!!!!!! That is not enough time to clear immigration and customs, change terminals, and get through security. I mean, maybe if the flight is really early you'd have a chance, but I really don't recommend trying it.

     

    thanks I have no real idea will keep looking fo 2 hous min?

     

    Yes, 2 hours would be the bare minimum if purchasing two separate tickets.

     

    thanks
