Hi, I'm trying to book a flight on Qatar airways. Domestic arrival in JFK via AA and then connect to Qatar airways. I see they have flights with a 41mins layover in JFK, is this enough time for the connection? I see that Qatar airways operates from Terminal 7/8, not sure which is which. Thank you
The Terminal depends on which flight you are on, the morning flight uses Terminal 7, the evening flight uses Terminal 8. If you're on the evening flight that's doable but risky. If you're on the morning flight, that's impossible.
Hi, I am flying in next May to JFK Airport on a Qantas flight from Melbourne, Australia (via LAX) arriving at 4:40pm into I believe terminal 7. I have decided that when I arrive at JFK to get a flight to Montreal for a few days before returning back to New York for the rest of my trip with Delta Airlines, they have one at 8:05pm (I already purchased a few months ago my ticket from Melbourne to JFK and back). I will have cleared customs and immigration in LAX (as that's the first point of entry into USA), so only have to get my luggage, changed terminal, check in etc. Is there enough time when I land to catch the Delta flight? I prefer not to have to stay in manhattan or at an airport hotel for the night.
Yes, that should be possible if the flight from LAX is on-time.
Hey everybody, I'm travelling from San Francisco to Venice through JFK , I got 1h5min transit time arriving and departing from the same terminal , T4. I got no luggage, just a small trolley Is it feasible? thank you
Yes, that is possible. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Thank you ZAP, but not sure: there should be a passport control since I'm European
There is no US Immigration or Customs when leaving the US. All they do is enter your passport number when you check in and you show it to the gate agent when you board the plane.
Arriving into terminal 4 on Delta from Venice. Sitting in Econ Comfort so not the back of the plane however, we depart from Terminal 2 on Delta...is 1 hr 20 mins enough time to clear customs and get to terminal 2?
That will be very very difficult. It's shorter than the recommended International to Domestic connection time at JFK.
Arrive at 9pm on Jetblue (Terminal 5). Depart at 9am (next day) on Cathay Pacific (Terminal 8). I have lounge access and am considering sleeping in the airport. The primary reason would be to not have to go through TSA security again the next morning, however it looks like I cannot stay inside security and go to Terminal 8. If I have to go through security again anyway, I guess I should just exit and get a hotel. Options?
Yes, you will have to go through security again anyway in the morning and also the lounges aren't open all night.
