    Jun 15, 2014
    i am flying on etihad airways (via AA) from abu dhabi to JFK then 7 hours later i have a connection to pittsburg (also AA). I believe i have to go from terminal 4 to 8? my question is, do i have to go through immigration, get my luggage, go through customs( recheck in my baggage for the connection) and get another boarding pass, or can i directly go to the required gate?


  • Connection at JFK from Delta to Norwegian
    Jun 20, 2014
    Hi, We're planning a trip to get to London. We fly from Tampa and get to JFK at 9:40pm and our flight for London on Norwegian Airlines leaves at 10:50pm. Will we have enough time? We're doing carry-on only. Thank you!


    You go through Canadian Immigration in Vancouver. Yes, 1 hr 40 minutes should be enough time.


  • Enough Time for Connecting Flight
    Jun 11, 2014
    Hello. My sister and I are taking a trip to Iceland in November but taking separate connecting flights on the way back. We will both be flying into JFK on Icelandair arriving at 6:05PM. She has a connecting flight with Delta that leaves at 7:30 PM for Charlotte and I have a connecting flight with Delta that leaves at 8PM for Pittsburgh. We both plan on just bringing Carry-On's and the tickets were booked separately. Is this enough time to clear customs between flights? Thanks!

I understand I will have to get my luggage, go through customs, take a shuttle of some kind to another terminal, check in at jet blue and get to my flight- will I possibly have enough time? also does anyone know what terminals I will be flying into and out of and how easy it is to get a shuttle with luggage. TIA

    Arriving Intl fly from ACC @ 5:15 a.m. will I have enough time to make 7:00 a.m. departure to ORD. Do I claim baggage and recheck in same area?


    Both flights are AA - dont know if that makes a difference ?


    If your bags are tagged to MCO in LHR, then they will accept them for re-check. You would also avoid having to pay the checked bag fee. That being said, I think there's an increased chance of them being lost if you leave them at DFW overnight.


  • from terminal 8 to terminal 3
    Jun 4, 2014
    Hi, I'm flying with American Airlines from Cancun , arriving to terminal 8 at 16:40 and have a flight to Telaviv with ELAL at 23:15 from terminal 3. Should I claim the baggage and check in again in T3? Is it enough time for this connection?


  • enough time for connections?
    Jun 11, 2014
    Hi Honeymoon trip so confirming the new layouts with connections times. We leave Minneapolis at 11:15am to JFK arriving at 2:59 then our flight to athens greece is at 4:10 so 1 hr and 10 minutes. Is this the same terminal or would it be T2 to T4 now. And I wouldnt have to worry about any extra security or baggage transfers right. This is all delta/KLM Also I had to redo my return flight with Athens to amsterdam giving us a 50 minute layover to take a flight to minneapolis. Also Delta/KLM. I was told by the delta agent that I wouldnt have to worry about my bags as they will be transferred for me and no customs just a security check. Does that sound right. Thanks!!


    It may be difficult for you to make your connection although only having carry-ons helps. You can also check in online for your Delta flights before you leave Iceland. You will arrive in Terminal 7 (assuming you are flying Icelandair) where you will go through US Immigration and Customs. Then you will both take the AirTrain/Air Terminals Train to Terminal 2 where your Delta flights will depart.
