    arrive terminal 4 at 3.30pm on delta from Manchester uk depart to Miami on delta terminal 2 at 6.55pm what will I have to do on arrival thanks

     

    You will go through customs, pick up your bag, go through immigration, re-check your bag at the re-check desk, go through security at Terminal 4, then take the shuttle to Terminal 2. You have enough time.

     

  • Arriving JFK T2 / departing T4 separate tickets

    I am arriving at JFK T2 with Delta and then connecting with Emirates in T4, with plenty of luggage and separate tickets. Would you please indicate the most effective way for the connection. Would I have to carry the luggage from one terminal to other for check in with Emirates?

     

    With separate tickets, you will have to pick up your bags at the Terminal 2 claim, walk to terminal 4, check in at Emirates, then go through security at terminal 4. I advise at least 2 hours, 3 if your inbound is international.

     

    Many thanks for the useful information. would you know how far is it (walking time) between terminal 2 and terminal 4. Is there a shuttle between terminals that allow carrying luggage or is it easier to walk.

     

    You won't actually walk to T4, you will take the airtrain.

    Flying Paris to JFK on Icelandair into T7 with checked bags. Flight arrives 1230pm and connection on AA T8 at 530pm to Austin. What will we need to do once getting off the plane (luggage,customs,security,etc) and is it easy getting from T7 to T8? Also I'm hearing Icelandair is notoriously late so how much time is necessary to get to the other flight?

     

    Upon landing, you will go through customs, pick up your bag, immigration, recheck your bag at the recheck desk, take a shuttle to Terminal 8, and Enter security. You need about two and a half hours. Your flight from Paris/Reykjavik could be over two hours late, and you shouldn't have a problem making your connection.

     

    Correction- You will enter security at Terminal 7 then take the shuttle to Terminal 8.

     

    You actually won't be able to re-check your bags in T7 since IcelandAir and American don't have an interline agreement, you need to take your bags with you on the AirTrain to T8 to check them with American.

     

    Thank you both for the invaluable information, our first time through JFK wont be an unknown now. Thanks again!

    I am arriving from EDI at T4 and departing T2 to MCO with a 2hr 37min layover. Both flights on same reservation and I have checked baggage. Will I have to collect my baggage and recheck it, and what is the best way to get to T2?

     

    Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and take the shuttle bus to T2. You should have enough time.

     

  • Enough time?

    Terminal 4 7:18 to Terminal 2 8:05 No baggage. Both Delta. Will we make it?

     

    Yes, that's possible if the first flight is domestic and on-time.

    On an Endeavour Air (Delta) from Toronto connecting at JFK for Delta to Turks and Caicis. There is a 75 min layover. Don't believe we have to get our bags. Wondering if this is enough time to make this connecting flight to Turks. It's February and worry about weather. To get a much longer layover is very long and an extra $300+. Any advice is appreciated.

     

    Further to my question above.....it is all on one reservation with Delta. The return flight has a layover of 3hrs 50 mins. I realize I will have to collect our bags and go through customs to return to Toronto so that should be enough time I think.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. On your way to Turks and Caicos all you have to do in Atlanta is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, Yes, you should have enough time for both directions. Atlanta usually has fairly good weather in February.

     

    I would be connecting at JFK and not in Atlanta. Comments still apply?

     

    Yes, the same procedure applies. You should have enough time. Sorry about that.

    Ill be arriving at JFK with ASIANA from ICN, and will fly to PBI with jet blue. Are they on the same terminal? If not.. I believe i'll claim by luggage and let it be cleared then re check in again.. When will i re check in my luggage on the next terminal or is there any re check in counter right after luggage are cleared by customs.

     

    No Your Asiana flight will arrive in Terminal 4. If you purchased your tickets on one reservation then you can re-check your bags at the re-check desk in Terminal 4, otherwise you will have to bring them with you on the AirTrain to Terminal 5 to check them at the JetBlue check-in counter.

    yes you will arrive in Terminal 4, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then if Caribbean isn't able to issue your Emirates boarding pass in Georgetown, go get it at the Emirates check-in desk, then go through security and to your departure gate.

    Looking to book a flight from CDG to SEA with a two hour layover in JFK. Is this enough time to go through immigration/customs and get through the airport for the connection?

     

    That is just enough time if both tickets are on the same reservation and everything goes smoothly.

    I am coming in to JFK from Brussels on Delta and want to purchase a new delta ticket 2 hours later to Fort Lauderdale. I was told my luggage can be transfered to the new flight to Fll, and that I will go thru customs, but will not need to go thru security again. How could this be? Wouldn't I be leaving one international terminal and going to a domestic one??? Hope somebody can help!

     

    You will have to go through security again. Whoever told you that is wrong. However, it has nothing to do with "going from an international to a domestic terminal" All arriving passengers on International flights have to go through security before connecting to another flight. This is a difficult connection. You will have to claim your bags to go through US Customs in JFK.

    You will have to claim your bags to go through US Customs in JFK. What airline are you flying from Guyana to JFK? Are both tickets on the same reservation or is it two separate reservations?

     

    i ll be comming from Georgetown Guyana to JFK with Caribean Airlines and will leave for Dubai with Emirates. Yes the both tickets are on same reservation;

     

    OK, so yes you will arrive in Terminal 4, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then if Caribbean isn't able to issue your Emirates boarding pass in Georgetown, go get it at the Emirates check-in desk, then go through security and to your departure gate.

     

  • Terminal Connection Itnl/ domestic baggage

    I am arriving into JFK international flight terminal 8 I then need to connect to a domestic flight on American Airlines terminal 4 my question is once I exit immigration and customs is there a counter for American Airlines where I can recheck my luggage or do I need to shlep it myself on the Airtrain to the next terminal. The flights are seperate tickets

     

    American airlines does not use Terminal 4. Where are you flying from and to and what airline are you flying into JFK?

     

    Flying from Tel Aviv via EL Al then AA to North Carolina

     

    Ok, then you have your terminals reversed. You will arrive in terminal 4, go through US Immigration, claim your bags and go through US customs then take the airtrain to terminal 8, check your bags with American and go through security.

    Arriving from Raleigh Jet Blue on terminal 5 at 21:15 and have to take Emirates to Dubai Terminal 4 at 23:00. Do I have enough time to make the connection. Reservation is on the same ticket.

     

    on Aug 28th Sunday

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You just have to take the AirTrain from Terminal 5 to Terminal 4 and go through security.
