Hi. We will be flying in December from Toronto-JFK-Amsterdam-Norway (one ticket). We were wondering if we have to claim our luggage in JFK or do we just have to from arrival gate to departure gate? Thanks in advance
You do not have to claim your bags in JFK. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto.
We are traveling Delta from Zurich with a one hour 39 minute layover to go through customs, security, and get to the gate for our Delta connecting flight to Nashville. We plan to have carry-on luggage only. Is this possible?
It's possible but it leaves no time to spare for delays.
hi if anybody can help i am flying from manchester england with thomas cook and then on to miami with american airlines i have a 3 hour gap between flights will this be ok as i presume i will have to go throgh customs etc and pick up bags and then check in for my flight to miami any advice would be helpful ps never been to jfk before thanks
Yes, you will have to do that. You will have to take your bags on the AirTrain from your arrival Terminal to Terminal 8 to re-check them with American. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
I will arrive at JFK from San Diego with Delta around 330 pm on Saturday May 27, 2017 and then I have a connection to Amsterdam, The Netherlands with Aer Lingus at 850 pm. Is this possible? I have two separate tickets
That should be plenty of time. You will have to claim your bags from Delta and take them to T5 to re-check with Aer Lingus.
Hello, I will arrive at 8:45PM at terminal 4 (Delta), need to clear customs and immigration (I have a global entry), and then transfer to terminal 1 (Alitalia) for a flight that leaves at 10:20PM (not checking any luggage)... is 1.5 hours enough time?
It should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
