Flying from Paris to JFK (landing at 1pm) and then taking off to Charlotte, NC at 3pm. Any chance of two American/Natural born citizens making it to our Charlotte flight on time?
We will have checked luggage and we are flying Delta on one ticket but have this connection.
Any and all advice would be great!
Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Arriving from Dallas on Air France ( Delta) at 2:05pm connecting to Air France to Paris at 3:20pm. Same ticketing and checked baggage. Will I have time? Can I walk between terminals?
You have to take the AirTrain between terminals and go through security. You should have enough time.
We arrive from Johannesburg on South Africa Air in Terminal 4 at 6:40am. Connecting to Delta Shuttle 9:05am to Boston. Have TSA Pre-check. Carry on luggage only-no checked bags. Due to time difference and long flight most likely won't be able to get delta boarding passes until we are at the airport. Is this enough time or should we book the 11:35 shuttle instead? What is the best way to get between both terminals?
Delta shuttle operates from New York LaGuardia, a different airport from JFK. Can you confirm that the flights you are looking at are from JFK? If they are indeed both from JFK they will be in the same terminal.
Yes the delta flights to Boston are from JFK.. is the 9:05 attainable?
Yes the delta flights are from JFK not laguardia. Can we make the 9:05am?
Yes, you should have enough time.
Is 1.5 hours enough time to make a connection if I arrive and depart to/from JKF Terminal 4? I'm not sure if I have to clear security. My original layover was 2.5 hours and Virgin moved the departure time up an hour.
If both flights are on the same reservation you don't have to go through security, just go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
They are on the same reservation. Thank you!
Delta PHL to JFK, arriving 6:20 pm (early March) then connecting to Singapore Airlines to FRA at 8:15. No checked bags, but separate tix, no status anywhere, and a school age child. Reasonable? If delayed in PHL would DL be able to give enough notice that I can hop on Amtrak or even an Uber if needed?
That's just enough time if everything goes perfectly. If the flight is delayed, you have no chance of making it via Amtrak since you'd have to transfer to 30th st. then take Amtrak to Penn, then take the LIRR and AirTrain from Penn.
Thank you!
Hi,

2 American citizens with global entry, arriving to JFK on Singapore airlines at 11:10 am. Connecting flight on delta was originally booked at 3:25 pm but delta has subsequently changed the time to 1:59 pm. We will have checked bags. I'm not sure of terminals yet. Assuming different terminals, should this be enough time? Thank you
Where are you flying out on Delta to? Is it two separate reservations?
Flying Delta to Atlanta. Yes, 2 separate reservations, flying Singapore airlines into JFK
With Global Entry I think you have time. You arrive in Terminal 4 and depart from Terminal 2 or 4.
Flying into JFK Terminal 5 at 12:07am on JetBlue and flying out of Terminal 1 to Beijing via Air China at 2:30am. Whole thing was booked on Air China's website, so is my checked luggage transfer handled? Will I have enough time to go through security again at Terminal 1?
Thanks!
Not that it likely matters to the question, but I meant Orlando-JFK, not O'Hare. Wrong code! My bad.
Yes, your bags should be handled for you. You just have to take the AirTrain to Terminal 1 and go through security. You should have enough time.
Thank you ZAP, for the vote of confidence.
When I found this thread and started reading through it I was astounded by how many of these questions you personally had answered... going back quite a ways.
As far as I'm concerned, you are the patron saint of JFK airport.
TSA precheck Americans arriving back in US from Barcelona. I bought tickets on AA to JFK that arrive at JFK at 12:55 and depart at 2:55. Any way we'll make that? Will mobilepass help?
It's possible if everything goes perfectly.
My niece is coming from Amsterdam via JFK to MSP will she have to get her suitcase and go through emigration. She is flying with Delta is it all in one terminal? arrival in JFK 1:10 departure to MSP 4:20
Yes, in JFK she will go through US Immigration, claim her bags, go through US Customs, re-check her bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to her departure gate. She will arrive in Terminal 4 and depart from Terminal 2 or 4.

You should have barely enough time.
