  • delta terminals
    Feb 5, 2016
    flying Delta DEN - JFK- DUB, do I change terminals at JFK ?


    You may arrive in Terminal 2 or 4. You will depart from Terminal 4. If you arrive in Terminal 2, Delta runs a shuttle bus inside security between the two terminals.


  • Connecting between Hawaiian and Delta
    Feb 5, 2016
    I'm looking at a split itinerary that lands on Hawaiian in T5 at 6:55 am and leaves on Delta in T2 at 7:50. Is that cutting it too close? Carrying on and have TSA-precheck. Thank you!


    I personally wouldn't try it but with precheck it's probably possible if the Hawaiian flight is on-time.


  • TLV-BRU-JFK-BOS-DTW July 2016
    Feb 4, 2016
    I will be traveling to Israel to visit family in July. On the way back, my routing is TLV-BRU-JFK-BOS-DTW. I will be flying Brussels Airlines into JFK, arriving around 1:30 at Terminal 1, and connecting to JetBlue at Terminal 5 departing at 4:40 for Boston. If I check in online the night before, would I be able to make it to my connection?


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • Customs and rechecking bags
    Feb 4, 2016
    Arriving terminal 1 on Korean air, departing Terminal 5 or Jet Blue, once I clear customs are my bags "rechecked" in terminal 1 or do I have to take them to terminal 5?


    If both tickets were purchased on the same reservation and your bags are tagged through to your final destination then you can drop them at the re-check desk in Terminal 1. Otherwise you will have to bring them to the JetBlue check-in desk in Terminal 5.


    Thank you, they should be checked through to final destination, but I will check with her when she lands. Thank you.


  • Connection times
    Feb 4, 2016
    Didnt book yet but wondering if 2Hrs is sufficient when flying from Shannon (SNN) Ireland (Immigration pre clearance) via JFK and on to Orlando (MCO), not sure what terminals are used and if baggage needs to be collected at entry point in to US, ill be traveling with family including small kids trying to balance overall travel time with pressure of connecting. TIA


    meant to add that both flights are operated by Delta


    You will arrive in Terminal 4 and depart from Terminal 2. Delta runs a shuttle bus between the two terminals inside security. All you have to do in JFK is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, nothing with your bags. You should have enough time.


  • T4-T1 Connection. Layoff time of 1 hr 40 Mins
    Feb 3, 2016
    Flying to New York and to Paris. I reach T4 at 17:25 and have to depart from T1 at 19:10. Is this time sufficient to make from T4 to T1? Should I go through security check again? Tickets are in the same reservation and so I believe the baggage should be checked through.


    Where are you flying into T4 from? On What airline?


    Oh bad, I am flying from Minneapolis to JFK T4 through delta. Take AF from T1 to Paris.


    Yes, that should be enough time. You take the Airtrain between terminals and will have to go through security again in T1.


  • Transferring between terminals on separate tickets
    Feb 2, 2016
    Flying to New York and then New York to London on separate tickets. No checked luggage but I figure I have to go through security again. Can I walk to terminal 7 from 8? If I have to take the AirTrain, is there a separate train for the arrivals and departure levels?


    There is only one airtrain in each direction - out where the airtrain runs there is no "arrival" or "departure" levels. You have to take the airtrain.


  • T4 to T2 Connection SQ26 International to DL2799 Domestic
    Feb 2, 2016
    I will arrive on SQ26 from T4 at 11.15am and connect to DL2799 from T2 at 1.35pm bound for Orlando. As a foreigner with checked luggage, will there be sufficient time for connection?


    If both tickets were purchased on the same reservation that should be barely enough time. If this is two separate reservations it will be very difficult.


  • T4 to T2 50mins between flight all one reservation through Delta
    Feb 1, 2016
    I arrive at JFK T4 at 7:20am and depart from T2 at 8:10am. Is this possible? What are the chances of my baggage also making the next flight? And is the connection all within the security area, or will I have to go back through?


    Yes, that is possible if the first flight is on-time. Delta operates a shuttle bus inside security between T2 and T4.

    Hi, I will fly from Miami to JFK in with AA and in the same terminal 8 I will take a flight to Helsinki. in total i have 45 minutes to change flight at JFK. it is enough or i must to pass a control also there ? thanks a lot


    All you have to do in JFK is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time if your flight from Miami is on-time.


  • pre check in bags

    I am returning from Istanbul on Turkish airlines on March 7th at 10:05 and leaving on Delta AL on March 8th at 7:25 to JAX. Pm can I either book my bags through to JAX or Pre check them in when I arrive


    You will have to claim them when you arrive to go through US Customs and won't be able to re-check them until the morning.


  • 3 hour layover
    Jan 31, 2016
    I am arriving to JFK T1 from Moscow with Aeroflot on Saturday at 12.35 pm and have a Delta flight from T2 to Chicago at 3.35pm. I have checked luggage and two separate tickets. Is my 3 hour layover enough for me to make my connecting flight?


    Yes, that should be enough time if your Aeroflot flight is on-time. Be aware that your Delta flight may depart from Terminal 4, so check the gate monitors or flight status before getting off the airtrain.


    Thanks ZAP!

  • RIC - JFK - Quebec. Will I have to recheck my luggage in JFK
    Jan 28, 2016
    Flying from Richmond, VA to JFK, to Quebec. All on one ticket, with Delta. Will I have to recheck my baggage in JFK?


    No, there is no US customs when leaving the US. All you have to do in JFK is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
