  • Connection time between flights
    Apr 18, 2016
    Hi, I´m looking at booking a flight booked for my family in July with Delta arriving from MCO and continuing on to Iceland. Transit time between the flights is 1 hour. Both flights are in Terminal 4. Is that going to be enough time for us? We would check our bags in at MCO to Iceland.


    Yes, that should be enough time as long as the flight from Orlando is on-time.


  • do i need to go through security again

    Domestic delta flight into JFK, then flying Alitalia to Rome. Once I land with Delta, do I need to leave the terminal area and go through security again at International? My connection time is tight and security could kill it. Thanks.


    If your flight to Italy is operated by Alitalia, yes, you will have to take the AirTrain to Terminal 1 and go through security.


  • Will an 1:47 layover be enough time to get through customs
    Apr 18, 2016
    My plane lands at 4:40 PM on a Saturday. Connecting flight is at 6:25. Airline is Delta. Do I have enough time to get through customs and to my connection or should I change one of my flights?


    What airline are you flying to JFK? Where are you coming from? Are your tickets on two separate reservations or one reservation? You didn't provide enough information to answer your question.


  • 2 hour connection

    I arrive domesticall from Washington into JFK with checked baggage at 7pm and then have to change terminals and check in for a flight to Germany at 8.55pm. Do you think I can make it??


    They're on two separate tickets.


    What airlines are you flying? I wouldn't recommend this based on the information I have.

    I am arriving on Jet Blue at T-5 at 9:30pm and scheduled to depart to Lima on LAN airlines T-8 at 11:45.Will we have to go thru security again at T-8 and will we have enough time to make the connection?


    Yes, you will have to go through security again in T8. If you have checked bags and these are on two separate reservations this will be a difficult connection.


  • connections terminal 5 to 8

    have a connecting flight from Jet Blue arriving terminal 5 to LAN flight to lima departing terminal 8 at 1145pm. will we have enough time to make the connection?


    You didn't post what time your Jetblue flight arrives, so I don't know.

    Apr 16, 2016
    I am arriving at JFK via Asiana from Cebu, Phil at 11:30 am. We have 3 have checked bags to check in at the Blue jet counter by 3 pm. With such heavy bags to lug around any suggestions? Thanks


    You can bring airport and rented baggage carts on the airtrain between terminals.


  • Lay over 3 hrs 55 min is enough?

    I will be arriving at terminal 1 of JFK airport by Aeromexico at 12.55 pm. My next flight is at 4.30 pm for Dubai by emirates. Considering migration clearance, luggage, customs, is it sufficient time to catch the nxt flight? How one can change from terminal 1 to 4. Will apprciate you response


    The airtrain connects all terminals outside security. You should have enough time.


  • Domestic to Intl on Delta

    Arrive from Seattle at 4:05 and depart for Athens at 5:39 -- both Delta flights. Separate reservations, no checked luggage. Doable? On the return, also both on Delta, arrive from Athens at 4:28 and depart for Atlanta at 7:00. Again, separate tickets and no checked baggage. I have Global Entry. Can I make it? Appreciate your thoughts!


    flying in June into JFK on Delta arriving at 4:14 then need to get to Emirates for departure to Milan at 22:20 is this enough time for transfer?


    That is enough time for both connections.


  • Delta Transfer
    Apr 14, 2016
    Flying international into JFK on Delta, arriving at 5:00 pm Terminal 4 and departing JFK to Phoenix at 7:30 pm out of Terminal 2. One checked bag. Doable? Thanks,


    That should be plenty of time.


  • Xfer Time, T-5 to T-8

    Arriving JetBlue Terminal 5 at 15:00; must collect bags. Departing American Airlines, Terminal 8 at 17:40. Is this enough time to make the transfer? Thanks -


    If your JetBlue flight is domestic this is just enough time. If it's international this will be pretty difficult, but not impossible.


    Thanks, ZAP. The Jet Blue flight is domestic; departure is to Barcelone. I presume TSA Precheck would be a benefit in helping speed up check in at T8...


    Yes, precheck will help. You should have enough time.

    I'm a Canadian Passport holder flying in to JFK from Dubai landing at 8:50 AM at Terminal 4. My second flight on a separate ticket departs from Terminal 8 at 11:10 AM giving me just under 2.5 hours. Ill have no checked baggage with me. Do you think ill make it home?! Also I am staff with the airline flying into JFK but travelling off duty, do you think this might help me get through faster?


    Yes, with no checked bags I think you can make it. Having an Emirates staff badge probably won't help you with any lines at JFK. However, you could try it at security in Terminal 8, it can't hurt.


  • Sun country to delta
    Apr 13, 2016
    We are arriving at terminal 4 on Sun Country at 8:05 pm on a Thursday night. We need to catch a Delta flight to London at 10:30. Delta would not confirm which terminal the flight will leave from, telling me it will be decided 24 hours ahead of time. However, when pressed, they told me that the most recent similar flight did leave from terminal four. Do I risk booking it? We will not be checking bags. We should not have to leave security, right? Tx


    The flight to London will depart from Terminal 4. All International Delta flights use Terminal 4. Yes, without checked bags you won't have to leave security.




  • Terminal 4 toT8
    Apr 13, 2016
    Is it possible to take the trolly carrying my heavy luggage in the terminal air train when I transfer from T4 toT8. I am an old man and have only 4hrs 30m. from landing to take off.


    You have plenty of time. You are allowed to take luggage carts on the airtrain.


  • JFK to DCA
    Apr 15, 2016
    JFK British Airways flight arrives 1.05pm Terminal 8 DCA American Airline leaves JFK 2.55pm Terminal 8 Please help a dinosaur know Exactly what to do on arrival at JFK - concerned about retrieving luggage/customs/re-checking in.............


    Not sure I made that very clear. LHR - JFK then JFK - DCA It's one ticket BA operated by AA 1st leg then BA operated by AA 2nd leg (if it's operated by AA why has it got a BA flight numb?) I'm reading that i do immigration/get luggage/customs drop bag again - is it close by please?


    Arrive JFK terminal 8 and leave JFK terminal 8 as well hopefully that's a good sign.


    Yes, you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. You should have enough time.


    Thank you for replying. is it a BA or AA desk I'm looking for after Customs? and is it a designated 're-check in' for the case or just ordinary 'check in' Sorry if i sound a bit dumb !
