Should be arriving at JFK 5:25pm int flight i assume at T4 and plan to catch delta 7:30pm to SAN, is this possible regarding emigration, customs, separate tickets, bag checking?
Regards, Traveling
On two separate reservations, no I don't think that's enough time. What airline is your first flight on?
First flight is Air Serbia from Belgrade nonstop.
I arrive at JFK via Emirates at 14.14 on Monday 9/10/2017 at terminal 4. I need to connect with a Phoenix flight on American Airlines at terminal 8 which is departing at 16.30 on Monday 9/10/2017. Will 2 hours be enought time?
No, that's probably not enough time, especially if you have checked bags.
Arrive JFK via LOT air on 1 ticket . Continue to ATL on DL separate ticket
After customs what do i need to forward my bag to DL flight so as not to have to lug bag on air train

You need to take your bag to the Delta check-in desk in Terminal 2 or 4, then go through security. You have to lug bag on air train.
I am British Citizen arriving on a Saturday in November into JFK on British Airways (arriving T7) with expecting arrival time of 14:20 with a checked bag. Can I make a Jet Blue flight to FLL (leaving T5), including checking bag, for a 16:30 flight? Thanks in advance.
That's less time than I'd recommend (I recommend at least 3 hours for such a connection).
Thanks kindly for taking the time to reply.
I am flying from Manchester to JFK then from there too Indianapolis. With it being a connecting flight will I have too claim my baggage and recheck it or do I go straight to my next flight. I arrive in JFK at 1-15pm and leave from there to IN at 2.59 I'm worried I won't have enough time too claim and recheck bags and make it through security.

Anyone know about this?
Yes, you will have to claim your bags in JFK to bring them through US Customs. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Do you know where I need to go to do all of this? Will it all be done within terminal 8? Or do I need to travel across the airport?
If both flights are on American it will all be in Terminal 8.
Hi -

American Airlines "updated" a flight of mine- I will be flying from Reagan National (DCA) to JFK and now arriving at 8:53 PM and I have a flight from JFK to Buenos Aires (EZE) at 9:59 PM -- is that enough time to make the flight if they're in the same terminal? Does the situation change if I have a checked bag or does that go straight to my destination?

At some airports I've had to pick up the bags at baggage claim and go through again and wanted to confirm if the same at JFK-- If anyone knows, please advise- Thank you!
If both flights are on the same reservation you don't have to do anything with your bag when connecting and leaving the US. You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
Yes, they're both on the same AA reservation- thanks so much

I'll be arriving at 5 15 PM in January at JFK Terminal 1 via Aeroflot and plan to catch the last flight to Columbus (Delta, departing at 8 25 PM). Is there enough time to do so given that I have separate tickets, am a not a US citizen and don't have global entry as well?
That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Thanks for the info ZAP!
Hi, I will check in no bags and will be flying from LAX to JFK via Virgin America and will arrive at JFK at 10:20 PM to Terminal 4, and my next flight is with Ukraine Airlines at 12:30 AM from Terminal 7. Both flights are in the same reservation. Is this enough time to make it to the flight and I have business class flight on Ukraine Airlines.
Yes, that should be enough time if the first flight is on-time.
Thanks for the info, appreciated.

My flight from Milan arrives at 1:40 pm (With American Airlines) and my flight to Columbus leaves at 3:40 pm (with American Airlines operated by envoy air as American Eagle). Will I have enough time?
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Thank you!
I am flying into JFK on JetBlue flight arriving at terminal 5 at 10pm. My next flight is Norwegian leaving at 12 midnight out of terminal 1. Do I have time to make the connection with a checked bag?
That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. You'll have to transfer your bags between terminals yourself.
