  • Terminals??? CLE - JFK - Paris (CDG)
    Dec 30, 2015

    Hi everyone. I'm travelling from Cleveland (CLE) to Paris (CDG) through NYC (JFK). Booked through Delta, but flight to Paris is operated by AirFrance. What is the terminal I should arrive at and wherefrom do I take off to Paris? #4 and #1??? Do I have to collect and check-in my luggage again? Than you!

     

    You will arrive in Terminal 4, take the Airtrain to terminal 1, and go through security. You don't have to do anything with your bags.

     

    Thanks! I've never been at JFK. How do I find the Airtrain and is it free-of-charge? Does it specify the route to Terminal 1?

     

    It is free between terminals. There are many signs. It will say which one to get on to go to terminal 1.

     

    Thank you! Gooled it. I will use the yellow (Airline Terminals Train) line.

     

  • connetion flight transfering baggage at the same terminal

    arriving at Terminal 4 and depart at the same terminal 4 at delta airlaine going to narita tokyo japan and we have 50 mitutes connetion flight do we have time to transfer our baggage in just 50 minutes or the airline will do that for us?

     

    If both flights are on Delta and your first flight is domestic that is enough time. You won't have to do anything with your baggage and just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If that is not correct, where are you flying from and what airline are you on?

     

    yes its a domestic flight we are coming from BWI/WASNINGTON DC to JFK arrive in termianl 4 and depart at the same terminal 4 then going to Narita/tokyo japan to the Philippines...they are all on delta flights,,,

     

    Yes, then all you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have enough time.

     

  • Exiting airport between connections

    I'm arriving from San Juan Puerto Rico T4 and flying to Abu Dhabi from T5 Etihad Airways all the way.. with a 3 hour wait... Can I step out between connections to meet friends at the airport? Thanks!

     

    I think you have your terminals reversed. If you are flying JetBlue from Puerto Rico you will arrive in Terminal 5 and depart from Terminal 4. Anyway, yes, you can meet your friends when you transit between terminals because you will have to exit the secure area anyway.

     

    Thanks Zap..this helps..any idea where i would clear outward immigration. ..San Juan or JFK.. I'm not a US citizen...

     

    There is no US Immigration when leaving the US. You will go through the immigration of your final destination when you reach it. You will just show your passport to the airline agent when boarding your flight to Abu Dhabi in JFK.

     

    Great. .thank you!

    Hi Im Flying from Abudhabi and need to get a connecting flight to Las Vegas by Jet Blue, How do I change flights from International to Domestic

     

    You will preclear US immigration and customs in Abu Dhabi. You just have to take the airtrain from T4 to T5 and go through security.

     

    Would bags be checked all the way through or would bags have to be collected and re-checked ?

     

    If both tickets are on the same reservation then your bags will be transferred and you don't have to claim them in JFK.

     

  • Is one hour long enough

    We have an hour for a connection flight flying from Vancouver to London. Will that be long enough for the second flight and do we have to go through customs again?

     

    You will preclear US immigration and customs in Vancouver. There is no US customs when leaving the US.

     

  • 1 hour long enough for connecting flight?

    Will an hour be long enough for a connecting flight from Vancouver Canada to London? Do we have to go through customs with the luggage again?

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Vancouver unless your are flying Cathay Pacific. What airlines are you flying? Are your tickets on one reservation or separate?

     

    Hi thank you for replying. It's either with delta or virgin airways. We are still Booking through virgin travel agents. They inform me an hour is long enough!! I think it will be one reervation. But will ask these QS when I go again. Does it make a difference with one reervation?

     

    If you are booking it all with virgin it will be one reservation. All you have to do in JFK is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have enough time.

     

    Thank you for replying. I've been told it's two hours now! So there will definitely be enough time now. Have a lovely Christmas!

     

  • ONLINE CONNEX TRAFFIC ONLY

    Hi, I have a booking from FLL TO JFK (Jet Blue) landing at 21:09hrs and connecting EK JFK TO DXB departure @ 23:00hrs (Connecting time is 1hr 51mins). This is a single ticket booking done with Emirates. Recently i noticed that for FLL to JFK it was mentioned as "ONLINE CONNEX TRAFFIC ONLY " Can some one please explain what does this mean.Can i make it in 1hr 50mins from Terminal 5 to Terminal 4 ? Will i hav to go through customs again with my baggages or it will be through check in ? would appreciate your help. Thanks in advance

     

    "ONLINE CONNX TRAFFIC ONLY" just means that you can only book the Emirates codeshare on FLL-JFK if you are connecting to an Emirates flight in JFK. There is no US Customs when exiting the US. All you have to do in JFK is take the AirTrain from T5 to T4 and go through security. You should have plenty of time.

     

    Thank you so much ZAP for your quick reply. I assume that my baggage will be tagged from FLL directly to DXB .

     

    Yes, it should be.

     

  • Terminal 8 to Terminal 5 JFK

    In march I have a trip planned from Qatar to Las Vegas but I have a transit flight via JFK. I have from 15.15 to 17.41 to get from T8 to T5. I have been informed by the airline that I will not have to collect my luggage or get a new ticket. Will I have to pass through security. Do I have enough time to catch my transit flight? Your feedback is much appreciated.

     

    The airline is incorrect. You will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, take the AirTrain to T5 and go through security. You should have plenty of time.

    Have separate itinerary for domestic leg. Flying Jetblue SFO-JFK, and Emirates JFK-MXP. Will I have to do collect baggage and recheck-in for flight to MXP? On the way back, same steps + immigration?

     

    You can ask the JetBlue agent in SFO to check your bag to Milan by showing your Emirates confirmation, but they are not obligated to. If they do check your bag to MXP, all you have to do in JFK is take the AirTrain from T5 to T4, get your Emirates boarding pass if you don't already have it, and go through security. On your way back you will arrive in T4, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, take your bags with you on the AirTrain to T5 and re-check them with JetBlue and go through security.

     

    Any idea how long it will take at JFK upon arrival from Milan ? How are the lines for immigration?

    Myself and a group of people will be returning from a missions trip in Haiti and we are flying into JFK on an American Airlines flight, connecting through to another American Airlines flight to Seattle. Will 90 minutes be enough time?

     

    That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    Arriving T8 at 1715 on Xmas day on BA flight and connecting AA at T7 at 1945 to Toronto, same booking. Is that enough time for connection? Will I have to re-check luggage as well?

     

    You have your terminals backwards - you will arrive in T7, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, take the AirTrain to T8, go through security and to your departure gate. You should have enough time.

    Hi Returning from Texas to London flying from Austin into JFK via Delta and then under the same booking picking up a Virgin Atlantic flight from JFK to LHR, is 2 hours enough time. What will happen to my checked bags?

     

    You don't have to do anything with your bags. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have plenty of time.

    Hi There, I have a connection first thing tomorrow morning. Arriving from YYZ in JFK at 0750. Delta seems to think I can make my connection at 0830 to BDA. Can you confirm the jitney is out of gate B54 and if I need to go through security again? If you know, how often does the jitney come? Thank you!

     

    The Jitney runs almost constantly and you don't have to go through security again. You appear to have the gate right.

     

  • Landing in Terminal 4 from Dubai and connecting flight from Terminal 5

    Hi All, I will be flying from Dubai to JFK landing at 08:15hrs (Terminal 4) and i have connecting flight from Terminal 5 departure at 10:20hrs (Jet blue) to Fort Lauderdale. The said ticket was booked through Emirates and it has codeshare agreement with Jet blue. My concern is whether 2hrs is enough to do customs/immigration and drop the baggage again and board the Jet blue flight. Thanks in advance and wishing you all a very Happy Christmas and wonderful new year.

     

    2 hours should be just about enough time.
