    I have a delta flight from denver that lands at 16:30 and then flight with virgin flight to london that leaves at 18:30. Both flights had the tickets bought separately. So question is will i have enough time ?

     

    You should barely have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

    We have 3h 15 min time to change terminal, what are we expected to to with luggage, security and check-in? Only concern is do we have enough time, fligts are at separate tickets /Delta/Finnair). Many thanks in advance from first-timer at JFK

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You should be at T8 with your bags within 45 minutes of your arrival in T4.

    I am travelling from south africa to via jfk san francisco on emirates arriving 2 15 and next flight leaves 4 30 pm on virgin. is it enough time.

     

    Did you purchase your tickets separately or together? If together that should be enough time. Both flights will be in Terminal 4 and you will be able to re-check your bags at the transfer desk after clearing customs.

     

  • 2 hours 50 minutes enough for Connection?

    Our Asiana flight arrives at 9:40AM from Korea, we have 2hr 50min before our 12:30PM Delta flight to RDU. Is this enough time? We booked the tickets separately. Traveling with two young kids and we will have checked baggage. It looked like the recommendation was 3hr 30min for connection Internation:Domestic, so I was wondering if I should switch to the later 4:30PM flight to RDU

     

    Considering you are on separate tickets that definitely will be difficult. I wouldn't say impossible though.

     

    Even though both flights are in Terminal 4? Thanks for the advice!

     

    On second through I'd go ahead and try it. Worst case you will be out of Customs at like 10:50 or 11:00. That still leaves you over an hour and a half to check your bags with Delta and get to your gate. Go for it.

     

  • Connecting flight in JFK

    Got an American Airlines flight from Helsinki (originally flying from Lithuania) that connects in JFK to another American Airlines flight to Las Vegas - layover time - 1 hr 35 min - is that enough time to connect between terminals (if needed) and do I have to undergo all the procedures with luggage claim/re-check in? Thank you.

     

    You will arrive in Terminal 8, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, then re-check your bags at the transfer desk, then go to the departure level, go through security and to your departure gate, also in Terminal 8. You should have enough time if your flight is on-time but not much to spare if there are delays.

    I have never flied to USA so have no idea how long the immigration, etc takes. Could anyone please tell me if it will be enough time to catch an international flight from terminal 1 at 10:15 pm if arriving by Jet blue from St. Lucia at 6:59 pm to terminal 5?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. If you purchased your tickets together and your bags are checked to your final destination, you can re-check your bags after clearing customs at the re-check desk in Terminal 5, otherwise you will have to take them with you on the airtrain to Terminal 1 and check them at the counter of your second airline.

    Got a flight with Delta to JFK T4 and then connecting flight to Santo Domingo 2 hours later - do we need to collect luggage and go through immigration at JFK?

     

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

     

  • DELTA CONNECTION JFK SFO

    We are Belgian and German citizens. We booked on ONE ticket for September 3, 2015 from Brussels DL 43 to JFK arriving at 1:04 pm at terminal 4 and connecting flight DL 1370 at 2:30 pm to San Francisco at terminal 2. Is it correct that we have to go through immigration, collect bags (already tagged to SFO), go through custom, recheck bags, take air train to terminal 2, go through security ? Is this possible in 1h26 minutes (according to DL they respect the minimum connection time) ? If we miss our connection, is DL responsible for having us on the following plane without extra charge for us ? If yes, where can we find the written rule ? If we get our plane, what is the chance that our bags are on time in SFO ? Thanks to all from a worried passenger!

     

    Both of your flights will be in Terminal 4. You have the process correct but you do not have to go to Terminal 2. If you miss your connection due to a delayed inbound flight you will be rebooked on the next available flight to SFO with no additional charge. 1 hr 26 mins is actually 4 minutes below the minimum time.

     

    If we miss our connection not due to a delayed inbound flight but for example because we have to queue a long time for immigration formalities, does DL also have to rebook us on the next available flight to SFO with no additional charge. As we have 4 minutes below the minimum time can we ask DL now to book us on the next flight with no additional charge ? Where can I find the minimum connection time ? Thank you very much for your answer.

    Landing Delta from Brazil (I don´t know which terminal) departing 2 hours later to Seattle (I don´t know which terminal). Have to take the train or shuttle?

     

    Both of your flights are in Terminal 4. When you arrive in Terminal 4 you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the transfer desk, go up to the departure level, go through security and to your departure gate.

    I have someone arriving to terminal 1 and departing from terminal 4. The person is coming to the US for the first time and does not speak English. What is the best way for him to make the connection?

     

    He will arrive in Terminal 1, go through US Immigration, claim his bags, go through US Customs, re-check his bags at the transfer desk (assuming his bags are checked through to his final destination), then take the AirTrain from Terminal 1 to Terminal 4 and go through security and to his departure gate. JFK is a truly international airport and much of the signage is in other languages or has the international symbols for things.

    I have a 45 minute connection(coming from Boston), and heading to Costa Rica. I assume that we will be departing for Costa Rica from a different terminal than we arrive. 45 minutes seems like an awfully short time. Assuming that flight is on time, will this be enough time to connect? We are flying JetBlue

     

    If both flights are on JetBlue you do not have to change terminals. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 5. In that case that is enough time if your first flight is on-time.

    Landing 21:47 from Miami AA - leaving 00:40 Turkish Airlines. Canadian & Turkish passport. Luggages. One ticket bought from Turkey. Enough time to catch TK? Or fly back earlier from miami?

     

    That should be plenty of time. All you have to do is change terminals via the airtrain from T8 to T1, get your Turkish boarding pass if you don't already have it, and go through security.

    Flying from Toronto Tokyo, arrive on T8 by AA, departure on T1, 4 hrs between 2 flights. Do I need to collect my luggage and enough time to get on next flight?

     

    Did you purchase your tickets together or separately? if together then you will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs and you will not have to claim your bags in JFK on your way to Tokyo.

    We will be in business class so can use the faster security lines...is two hours enough time to make a connection between Delta on terminal 4 and Alitalia (Delta code share) on terminal 1

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time if your Delta flight is domestic and enough time if your Delta flight is International.

     

  • Using airport lounge on different terminal

    My husband and I have a flight from Terminal 4, however, have passes for the United lounge on Terminal 7. Would it be possible for us to clear security on Terminal 4 and then head to the lounge on Terminal 7 for a bit before we head back to Terminal 4 for our flight? I guess the question is are the terminals connected post security and can I use the United lounge even though my flight is from a different terminal?

     

    No, T7 is not connected to any other terminal inside security.
