  • connections terminal 5 to 8
    Apr 17, 2016
    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.


  • Luggage prob
    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
    Apr 16, 2016
    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
    Apr 13, 2016
    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 !


  • Connection from Milan
    Apr 12, 2016
    I have booked my tickets in and out of JFK separately from my flight from JFK to Milan. My flight from Milan is scheduled to land on a Tuesday at 1:39. I can choose to fly out of JFK on my flight booked separately at either 3:59 or 8:30 PM. Is 2 hours 20 minutes enough time to get through immigration, pick up checked baggage, and make it to the Jet Blue gate?


    With checked bags on two separate reservations, no I do not think 2 hrs 20 minutes is enough time.


  • connection time

    flying to Boston from Dubai Correction time 2 hours 45 minutes I'm trying to Tampa by Jetblue


    So you're connecting at Boston, not JFK? (you posted in the JFK forum). If so that's just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Terminal 4 to Terminal 8
    Apr 12, 2016
    I will be arriving on Delta from Madrid at 12:22PM in Terminal 4. My connecting flight is in Terminal 8 American Airlines departing 2:59PM. Tickets were booked seperate, will have 1 checked bag. Total time (if flights are on time) is 2 hrs 38 mins. Does this seem like enough time to make the transfer? Thanks in advance!


    It's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. If you can do this without a checked bag it will make it much easier.


    Thanks Zap!


  • Is this enough time?
    Apr 11, 2016
    I am arriving on Jet Blue from DEN at 6:50 pm to JFK, departing for Prague at 8:30 pm on Delta. Is this enough time? One checked bag, separate reservation.


    That's barely enough time if your flight from DEN is on-time and your bag comes out quickly. I personally would try to do this without checked bags if you can or not do it at all.
