Is the tram inside or outside. Of security?
The AirTrain runs outside security. Only Delta's shuttle bus between Terminals 2 and 4 runs inside security.
I have a one hour, 20 minute layover from a Nashville flight, to catch a flight to Paris. Is that enough time?
What airlines are you flying?
Hi, I have a flight landing at JFK New York at 4:00pm on 26 December 2016 via an Air Berlin from Berlin Tegel and then have an Air Berlin (operated by AA) flight to San Juan at 6:45pm. Will 2,45 hours be sufficient time taking immigration and baggage check-in into account.
Do I have to change terminal?
Thank you Martina
Yes, that is enough time. Both flights will be in Terminal 8.
My family of four are arriving in JFK from SMF via JetBlue on Dec 18 8:06am.
We have a connecting flight to Dubai at 10:40am. Do we have to claim our bags at JFK and recheck them to Dubai? If so this this enough time to claim bags, recheck, and go through security?
Are both flights on the same reservation or is it two separate reservations? If it's the same reservation you just have to take the AirTrain to Terminal 4 from Terminal 5 and go through security and you have enough time.
Traveling to Moscow dec 29 - arrive at JFK on delta from RIC at 12:38 PM depart to moscow aeroflot 2:25 PM - no bags to check -- okay for time? and arriving back at JFK 5:25 PM jan 9 with connecting flight to RIC 7:45 pm, same airlines -- enough time? Fast walker :) Thanks!
Yes, that is enough time. On your way to Moscow you will have to take the Airtrain from Terminal 4 to Terminal 1 on the airtrain and go through security. On the way back you will 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 and go through security.
On Christmas Eve morning I arrive at about 0530 from Tel Aviv and leave for St Maarten at 0835. Returning on Friday evening 6th Jan I have 2 1/2hrs. All with Delta on one ticket. Should I have enough time to connect with check-in baggage, or should I not risk it and keep to cabin baggage? Thanks!
Yes, that should be enough time.

You will not have to claim your luggage in JFK if both flights are on the same reservation. Yes, the AirTrain is very well marked.
One last question is 2 hrs enough for this connection while am having my newborn with me
Thanks
Yes, that should be enough time.
Plane lands in T8 at 4:45pm, my next flight departs from T5 at 7:25pm. Will I have enough time to pick up my bags, take the air train, and check in my bags by 6:40pm?
Is your arrival domestic or International? If it's domestic that should be enough time. if it's international it will be close.
Hi, I will be travelling from Shanghai to JFK. Eta JFK is 1325hrs...my next flight to Orlando is at 1455hrs. Will I be able to catch the flight on time? If I can't what are the possibilities of taking the next flight? I have booked the flights to Orlando. There are 5 of us.
That's barely enough time if everything is on the same reservation and everything goes perfectly. If everything is on the same reservation you will be rebooked on the next available flight if you miss your reservation, but it may take awhile for them to get all 5 of you there, especially if you are traveling during peak season.
Hi. I'm arriving at JFK term 5 at 7am and leaving to go to Germany at 7:45 am at terminal 1. Do I have enough time? And do I need to get my luggage or does it transfer for me? Thank you
Even if your bags are checked through I don't think you have enough time. However, please double check your reservation. As far as I know there are no morning flights from JFK to Germany.
