Arriving on Air Berlin at 3:45 PM. Do I have time to get thru customs, get checked baggage and leave on a Delta flight at 6:30 PM?
and get bags rechecked to fly Delta at 6:30
That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
I am coming into JFK on El Al arriving at 6am and have a Delta Flight departing at 8:05am. Can I make it and how is JFK configured to get me bags to Delta after customs
That will be really difficult. You will have to claim your bags to go through US Customs and then take them to the Delta check in desk on the departure level of Terminal 2 or Terminal 4 to re-check your bags.
Delta offers LAX-Glasgow, connecting through JFK with a 46 minute connection time (DL2012/DL466). I'm concerned this isn't enough time. Am I worrying too much -- should I just trust Delta and book it (either through Delta or, saving money, through Virgin Atlantic)?
It is possible but it leaves no time to spare if the flight from LAX is delayed.
We are flying Delta to LAX to Punta Cana with a 1.5 hour layover at JFK. Is that enough time to make the connecting flight and where do we go
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate, both in Terminal 4.
So we don't need to collect checked baggage or go through customs right? We haven't book our tickets yet because we were not aware that on Delta we arrive in the same terminal as we depart for Punta Cana. I am assuming that if they both arrive and depart in the same terminal we should have plenty of time as long as LAX is on time.
Correct, there is no US Customs when leaving the US.
Arriving into JFK British Airways T7? 7:30pm with onward connection JetBlue to Caribbean 11:00pm. Is this enough connection time?
Yes, that should be enough time if the British Airways flight is on-time. You will have to transfer any checked bags yourself to JetBlue.
I'm arriving at JFK from Madrid and have a connecting flight to Charlotte 1 hr 45 minutes later. Is this enough time to get through customs and recheck bags?
What airlines are you flying? Are both tickets on the same reservation or two separate reservations?
I am Arriving from Ohare to JFK by delta at terminal 2 at 9.15 AM and catching Etihad to Abudhabi at Terminal 4 by 2.15 PM.My query is do I have enough time and do I need to claim my luggage at JFK and re checkin at Terminal 4 . How do I transport between T2 & T4
You will arrive in Terminal 4. Yes, you will have to claim your bags from Delta and then take them to the Etihad check-in desk in T4. You have plenty of time.
Thanks a lot . my assumption was that Delta arrive at T2
Delta Connection flights use T4.
Arrive at JFK at 6:41pm on 2-3-17 then depart at 7:40pm to PDX. Is 1 hour long enough to get through customs and to our next flight?
That is absolutely NOT enough time
Exactly what I thought. Schedule was recently changed by Delta so will contact them regarding it. Thank you so much for the quick reply!
I have a flight that lands at JFK domestic terminal 5 and then I have a 2 hour lay-over to catch my connecting flight from JFK terminal 4 to Australia. I have never been to JFK before and would like an idea on how do I get from terminal 5 in domestic to international terminal 4? Thank you
You take the AirTrain. You will have to go through security again in Terminal 4. There are no nonstop flights from JFK to Australia. What airline are you flying out of JFK?
Thank you.
I'm flying Emirates via Dubai. Will the air train get me around all the other terminals and back to terminal 4 with time to spare? It's an Emirates ticket all the way through.
You can take it directly from 5 to 4 (there's one train that goes in the reverse direction). You should have enough time.
I'll be arriving on Delta to Term 2 or 4 (not sure yet) from Atlanta at 12:41. My next flight is on Aeroflot from Term 1 at 2.25pm (1hr 44min layover). Would I have enough time to make this connection? Thanks
You have just enough time. You will have to take the AirTrain to Terminal 1 and go through security.
