  • Transfer from American to Air France
    Feb 18, 2017
    I'm scheduled on a flight arriving on American Airlines at 8:15 PM (terminal 8), with a flight on Air France departing at 9:50 PM (terminal 1). Is this a feasible connection? Will i need to go through security again?


    Yes, you will have to go through security again in T1. If you have checked bags that is not possible. With no checked bags it's barely possible if everything goes perfectly.


    Thank you!


  • Catching a connecting flight
    Feb 18, 2017
    I am planning on buying two tickets; one from London to JFK arriving at 11:10am on the 24th June 2017 and another on the same day leaving JFK at 13:50 to Augusta, Maine. I'm coming in on a J1 visa and have been to the USA before but is 2 hours 40 mins enough time to do all the necessary baggage collection, baggage drop off and checking in etc.


    It's possible but leaves no time to spare.


  • AA Terminal 8 to Delta Terminal 4
    Feb 20, 2017
    I am arriving at 13.05 with American from the UK at Terminal 8 and need to catch a Delta flight from Terminal 4 to Orlando at 15.55. Will there be enough time to collect bags, clear Immigration and check in at Terminal 4?


    That is barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.


    Thank you - I'll re-visit plans!


  • Air Maroc to Delta connection
    Feb 17, 2017
    I am arriving in Terminal 1 on Royal Air Maroc from Casablanca at 5:35pm on a Tuesday. I have 1 hour 50 minutes to clear customs (I have Global Entry), collect my bag, get to Terminal 2 and re-check my bag for a 7:25pm flight on Delta to Boston (business class). Am I likely to make my connection?


    It's possible but everything has to go perfectly.


    Thank you! Fingers crossed, then.


  • Terminal 5 to Terminal 1
    Feb 18, 2017
    I'll be arriving on JetBlue (Terminal 5) at 21:58 and my next flight is on EVA Air (Terminal 1) at 00:20. All flights were booked under one reservation. I'll have one checked-in luggage. Do I need to pick up and re-check in the luggage? Do I need to go through the security check again? How to go from Terminal 5 to Terminal 1? Do I have enough time (2 hr 22 min)? Thank you.


    If your JetBlue flight is domestic you don't have to do anything with your bag. Just take the AirTrain from T5 to T1 and go through security. You have enough time.


    JetBlue flight is domestic and EVA Air flight is international. Thanks much for the response!


  • Delta to AA/international to domestic connection
    Feb 17, 2017
    Hi, I am looking at a flight arriving at JFK from Iceland (KEF) on Delta (Terminal 4) on a Monday mid-morning, and would like to then take an AA flight on a separate ticket from JFK to DFW. There would be a little over 4 hours of connection time. I am a US passport holder. Is that sufficient time to get my bag, go through customs/immigration, change terminals (from T4 to T8, I believe) and recheck my bag with AA? Thanks.


    Yes, that is enough time.


  • new Orleans to Moscow
    Feb 17, 2017
    I'll be arriving on Delta to Term 2 or 4 (not sure yet) from new orleans at 10:25 pm My next flight is on Aeroflot from Term 1 at 1:00 am(2h:45 min) Is that enough time to make the connection? (two separate reservations i have to take my bag in recheck again) if i have time, what is the fast route to get terminal 1,.


    That should be enough time. The only way to T1 is the AirTrain.


  • American to Delta
    Feb 17, 2017
    I am arriving from Phoenix on American and have 3.5 hours to transfer to an international flight to berlin on Delta. Is this enough time? How do I get between terminals? Will I have to go through security again at JFK


    Yes, you will have to claim your bags, take the AirTrain to Terminal 4, and go through security. You have enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Connecting Flight
    Feb 16, 2017
    Ive got a connection flight. I will arrive to JFK from Orlando at the 5 terminal, and I have 2h30m between the next flight to Kiev, terminal 7. Is it enough time?


    That is just enough time if your flight from Orlando is on-time.


  • 1 hour layover: RDU to JFK to DOH
    Feb 16, 2017
    A ticket I am considering only has a one hour layover from RDU to JFK (QR 5483) to DOH (QR704) Arriving into Terminal 8 and departing from Terminal 7. I havent been inside the US in a few years so I dont know how things operate now, but it seems like a tall order if I have to leave the arrival terminal and recheck through security in the departure terminal.. Is one hour enough time? This was the itinerary provided by Qatar Airways itself.. not something I pieced together. Any help would be appreciated.


    1 hour is indeed a difficult connection time. It's not impossible, but everything has to go perfectly.


  • What terminal serves LAN airlines? Latam
    Feb 16, 2017
    Trying to figure time necessary arriving via Lan from Chile and flying to Kansas City on American or Delta. Chilean citizen.


    LAN uses Terminal 8. So flying American to Kansas City will be easier as they also use Terminal 8.


  • From Milan to Santo Domingo (via JFK)
    Feb 16, 2017
    Hello, I'm flying from Milan to Dominican Republic, passing JFK airport. Is 1h30min enough time to catch the plane for Santo Domingo. Thank you for the answer


    What airline are you flying? Are both flights on the same reservation?


    I'm flying with Delta, both flights are on the same reservation. Thank you for a prompt response! Simon


    Then that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly. You will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security and to your departure gate.


  • 1 hour 35 min layover in JFK international to domestic
    Feb 16, 2017
    I am a British Citizen on a returning ESTA. My flight from LHR lands at JFK at 2.25PM at terminal 4. I then have a connecting flight to ORD at 4:00PM also from terminal 4. Will this be enough time? Will I need to go through immigration on arriving at JFK?


    The airline is Delta and one reservation.


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


  • Transferring from domestic to international
    Feb 16, 2017
    We are considering booking a flight from Boston to JFk to get a better fare to Rome. It would be on a different airline - not on the same reservation. Will it be hard to get our bag and then recheck in at the international terminal? How would we get from the national terminal to the international? How long would it take?


    JFK does not have an "International Terminal". 5 of the 6 terminals at JFK handle International flights. You need to be more specific about what airlines you're looking at flying.
