I am flying from Europe (with a EU paassport) to Los Angeles via JFK. I will land in JFK on a Monday afternnon at around 4 pm and leave again at 6 pm for LA. Is that enough time to pass through immigration and passport control? According to the travel agency I am booking from is a but tight..Thanks!
And also, I am arriving at and departing from terminal 8 at JKF
Yes, that is enough time.
I need to fly from FRA to CHA end of September, Delta offers a flightplan with a ~2h stop in JFK. DL 400 from FRA to JFK arrives at 1:27pm, DL 206 from JFK to ATL departs at 3:20pm. Is that enough time in between? Thanks!
Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I am landing at JetBlue at JFK tomorrow at 1:27 p.m. and have a 6:45 p.m. flight on El Al. I booked the flights separately. I am travelling with luggage. TY!
You will arrive in Terminal 5 and depart from Terminal 4. You will collect your bags from JetBlue, take the AirTrain to T4, re-check them with El Al and go through security. You have enough time.
We fly from Seattle with Delta arriving at 7:00am. We then fly on to the D.R. at 8:30.Also on Delta. Do we have claim our baggage and recheck or will they forward them on for us? Also is the is enough time to get to our next gate? Do we have to leave the airport or is there a internal way to get to the next terminal. Thank you!!
You don't have to do anything with your bags in JFK on the way to D.R. Yes, that is enough time. Both flights should be in Terminal 4.

I have a flight from San Juan to JFK. I Will be arriving on terminal 4 and departure is also from terminal 4 where I have to catch flight for Paris. Do you think 1 hour is enough for connecting flight on the same terminal?

Thanks in advance.
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time.
Is 2 hours and 20 minutes enough time between a flight on American Airlines domestic to pick up luggage and transfer to terminal 1 AirFrance international? 2 tickets.
That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.

I land at JFK from Johannesburg on SAA AT 0640AM (FEB 10TH) and have a Jet Blue flight to Puerto Plata at 0915
what are the procedures? can I make the flight? can luggage be checked through direct to POP from Johnnesburg? I do have a valid USA 10 Visa
What airline are you flying to Puerto Plata? Is it one reservation or two separate reservations?
The airline is JetBlue and at this stage of planning it would be a separate booking from the SAS flight to JFK
You will arrive in Terminal 4, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then take your bags with you on the AirTrain to Terminal 5, re-check your bags with JetBlue, and go through security. That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Thank you for response... it's highly appreciated...
Is it possible to check the luggage through directly from Johannesburg? Would that be possible if it was one booking? Or if I already have boarding passes printed when I depart Johannesburg
You have to claim your bags in JFK to clear US Customs whether it's one reservation or not, even though you're connecting to a different country.
Flying jetblue BUFFALO to JFK and then on to london, heathrow thru British airways (separate ticket)- do I need to transport my own checked bags between terminals, and if so, how much time is needed? Thanks!
Yes, you will have to take your bags yourself from Terminal 5 to Terminal 7 and re-check them with British Airways. You'll want at least 2.5 hours.
Hi, I am flying into JFK from Ecuador on Latam air, then on to Shannon, Ireland via Aer Lingus. We 2 hours 5 minutes from arrival to departure. Will we be able to get thru customs and checked in for Aer Lingus at least 60 minutes prior to departure? I.E., through customs and to the Aer Lingus check in in an hour?
I really doubt it.
Is 2 hours and 30 mins enough time from terminal 8(AA) to terminal 4(Air Serbia),one reservation
Yes, that should be enough time.
